We do not want to go to jail—but we will go to jail if this is the price we must pay for love, brotherhood, and true peace” (Lewis and Aydin 170). Of the experiences and sentiment John Lewis delivered within his words the usage of ethos, logos, and pathos becomes clearly visible.
Freedom, they believed, requires more than a tyrannical assertion of the self. It also demands an intelligent and pragmatic understanding of the relationship between self and society.

This very easy for the colonies to do based on their shared disapproval of and abuse from Britain and its rule. The colonists believed that they had to defend their liberties and that Britain was taking these from them. Richard Henry Lee describes how the colonists want to defend these liberties as led to their unification in his letter to Arthur Lee, “N.America is now most firmly united and as firmly resolved to defend their liberties ad infiniturn against every power on Earth that may attempt to take them away” (Doc 3). This demonstrates that not only are the colonists ready to fight to attain their liberties, but work together afterwards to protect them from anyone who intends to take them, thus supporting the idea of the colonies as not thirteen individual independent states, but one unified state. This idea of a strong unification greatly supported by Document 6.

In the article, “The Indispensable Opposition,” author, Walter Lippmann, argues his claim that we must view the freedom of oppositions as a way to improve our decisions in a democratic society rather than just tolerating that freedom of speech. When freedom of speech is tolerated and only seen as a right to speak, Lippmann believes that the liberty of opinion becomes a luxury. Moving forward, Lippmann then states that we must understand that the freedom of speech for our opponents are a vital necessity since it provides our own opinions to grow in improvement. Through practical experience, we realize we need the freedom of opposition and is no longer just our opponent’s right. In fact, Lippmann claims this system of free speech allows us to
