In 1962, in the midst of the international space race, steel prices in the U.S. began to rise. In this speech delivered by John F. Kennedy, he claims that there is no justification for these increasing steel prices through the use of logos and pathos. Whilst attempting to convince and create reason for steel companies to reduce their prices, JFK employs the use of logic-best argumentation in order to convey his message. However, at times, because his audience isn't merely citizens of the country but also executives of the steel companies, the line between pathos and logos is subtle, for he appeals to the emotions general American public through the use of verifiable data. He proposes a series of alternate (and very possible realities) that
Patrick Henry and John F. Kennedy were similar when discussing the value of freedom. Patrick Henry was speaking to a group of representatives to persuade them to not go back to Britain's rule. Henry stated, “... give me liberty, give me death” (85). He was convincing people to fight for their freedom. In a like manner, John F. Kennedy was presenting his Inaugural Address to people of the United States.
On April 10, 1962, steel companies raised the prices by 3.5 percent of their products. President John F. Kennedy had tried to maintain steel prices at a stable rate. President John F. Kennedy, known for his diligence and persuasion, held a news conference about the hikes in steel prices. President John F. Kennedy, in his speech, uses rhetorical strategies such as diction, emotional appeals, and a persuasive tone to convince Americans that steel companies are declining the standards to maintain stable prices. Kennedy states that the steel companies are a national problem due to the increase of steel prices.
The beginning of the speech went fairly well as he was honoring Washington, however, he ended up ridiculing Congress. President Johnson usually spoke harshly about Congress and his mouth had the tendency to get him in trouble. In his speech, Johnson said, “I find men I care not by what name you call them…who still stand opposed to the restoration of the Union of these States.” He later would call out Thaddeus Stevens, Charles Sumner, and Wendell Phillips for plotting his assassination. In his speech, Johnson said, “I say that I have no doubt the intention was to incite assassination, and so get out of the way the obstacle from place and power.” Thaddeus Stevens and the radical Republicans viewed Johnson’s speech as a declaration of war. Andrew Johnson was a man who was not afraid to speak out against Congress.
However, Thoreau writes to the common American people because they are directly affected by the government. He is trying to connect with the people willing to take a stand and speak out against the government with him. Also, he is writing to the people who oppose the Mexican war and slavery. Regardless of who King and Thoreau were writing too, they both delivered their arguments in an effective
With equality, everyone is able to reach their full potential. The second ideal from the Declaration is unalienable rights. The three unalienable rights are life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness. Unalienable rights let people be able to own their own property and have certain freedoms. Everyone has to be equal in order to achieve liberty because people have to be equal in order to have the same freedoms.
Although Nixon attempted to cover up his ties to the break in, it eventually came out that he ordered it to be done. In 1974, former President Nixon resigned from office and Gerald Ford became the temporary president. One of the first executive orders that Ford did was pardon Nixon for his crimes against the United States. The entire scandal had, “driven a stake into the heart of traditional national politics.” (Farber, 27) This controversy was not only publicized nationally, but severely damaged the American people’s already withering relationship with their government. Foreign policy wise, Nixon, while still in office, began to follow Realpolitik, a policy that allowed him to create relationships with both the Soviet Union and China because it no longer required morality to be a considering factor.
Following the increased price of steel, Kennedy gave a speech responding to the Steel Companies decision. Throughout Kennedy’s speech, he uses rhetorical strategies to strengthen his message. Kennedy uses strong diction and logos to emphasize his disapproval of the steel companies. Kennedy begins his speech with strong diction to condemn the steel companies raised prices. Kennedy’s repeated usage of “we” makes the crowd feel unified in their hardships that they have been going through.
Last, but most important is political.A quote that supports my causal factor for political is on page 13 is, “ Meanwhile tremendous political pressure was put upon President Roosevelt by Californians an their congressmen to intern all Japanese Americans.”The way this quote showed political is because they are talking about putting all Japanese Americans intern which also says political pressure on the president so that kinda gives it away.Another quote that supports the political causal factor is on page 18, “Congressmen passes the Immigration Act 1924 effectively ending all Japanese immigration to the U.S.” The way this quote supports my causal factor for political is because the now banned Japanese immigrants because I think America was scared the Japanese some info from America an what weapons they had and what were their plans to do a war or not. That is how it was back then, when war was, when the Pearl Harbor happened. The reason why political is more important than economical, and cultural is because there is more evidence that the causal factor is Political.If not for political this probably would have not happened, like if the American did not stop giving the Japanese supplies.Well it can help us by checking if people are spying, before we put them in an internment
“Senator Joseph McCarthy began hearings investigating the United States Army, which he charged with being ‘soft’ on communism. These televised hearings gave the American public their first view of McCarthy in action, and his recklessness, indignant bluster, and bullying tactics quickly resulted in his fall from prominence,” (McCarthy Army Hearings). These hearings showed Americans how McCarthy really was in court, and he disgusted them. McCarthy even targeted President Truman himself at one point, when Truman made the decision to remove General Douglas MacArthur from power during the Korean War. Unlike the Salem Witch Trials, there were other judges with the same if not more power as him and when they saw through the facade of the trials to the his real motives, which were jealousy, arrogance, and selfishness, they
From then on out, and continuing today, Americans are given the choice in who their ruler will be. The American government also currently sustains the ensurement of the fundamental rights of its population. Paine also admits in his writing that everyone in America is equal and “the poor are not oppressed, the rich are not privileged…” Everyone was to be treated fairly and equal in America in the late 1700’s while residents of England were divided by unprotected rights and freedoms and class systems. Today, everyone continues to be entitled to the same rights and freedoms as the people in 1791. Overall, America has not changed all too much throughout the years, but whenever it does, it is for the better.
Overall Wallace is trying to defend the new deal and trying to inform the public of what the government is really doing. In the next document on the radio Huey Long claims to want to cut the wage gap between the rich and poor and provide the poorest families with a livable wage. He wants every person in America to be able to have a chance to thrive whether it be to provide extra money for food or for an education. He does not plan to commandeer money from the rich to give to the poor but to provide enough money to make “Every man a king” and allow everyone to thrive. In theory this sounds like a great idea but it would require a large tax increase that most successful people in America at the time would most likely not want to pay.
Roosevelt is states “This nation has placed its destiny in the hands and heads and hearts of its millions of free men and women, and its faith in freedom under the guidance of God. Freedom means the supremacy of human rights everywhere.” The main reason people come to the Unites States is because they want an overall better life and want to full-fill their niche in life. We each have the freedom to go for opportunities that you want to achieve. This country is based on everyone 's perspective. As an individual 's everyone is important just as the next guy.
No doubt about it, we were able to get out of the great depression. Yet, what this country may not know is that while we gained economic growth by selling artillery to the Nazis, the Japs on the other hand, a Nazi allie, came up on ourselves and attacked Pearl Harbor through the pacific ocean. On an economic point of view, not a good deal. Elan Evan, an American defense analyst and author said, “people still crow about smashing Adolf Hitler 's Third Reich in World War II, forgetting that U.S. government actions helped bring Hitler to power in the first place.” It is nearly impossible to compare, in a social point of view, the value of the people who died in this war and the economic side of this. While it was true that this war helped move the economy, it came up at a large cost; Three percent of the total American population died in the war, that was roughly sixty million people.
