The pertinent ethical issue in this situation is the issue of disseminating incomplete part of the story to the public.

By inspiring an emotional response, ridicule highlights the counterintuitive aspects of an argument or action, making it appear foolish or ridiculous and contrary to common sense” (Woodward, Denton, 2014: 72). Alinsky claims “ridicule is man’s most potent weapon” because “it is almost impossible to counterattack ridicule.

Now I know that sounds petrifying, but as soon as you really get into the reading you'll understand why it's utterly captivating. Now let's get down to business, Paul gave many different definitions to dignity, he wanted to discover what dignity is exactly, he said that one of the forms of torture that strip a person of their dignity is when you make their life so horrible that they just don't want to live anymore.

He first utilizes ethos in order to establish his credibility and principles before he proceeds any further, which the man does on purpose in order to gain the plebians’ trust.

To Marinetti, violence was a must. He wrote, “We intend to glorify the love of danger, the custom of energy, the strength of daring,” (Marinetti 286). He believed that violence had some sort of healing properties that could purge all the old traditional ideas so people can start thinking and innovating. This is an idea that Mazzini was against.
