Democracy in America is one of the most important books on American political life. During his nine-month stay in the United States in 1831, Alexis de Tocqueville was able to capture the essence of freedom and equality in American life. In doing so he saw that democracy was taking over the world and saw the true meaning of democracy in America with its ‘equality of conditions’. He often repeats that the advancement of democracy and equality is inevitable and that nothing can be done to stop it. While this unstoppable force of equality has helped American society, its presence also presents many dangers.
The Space Shuttle was introduced after the Apollo mission was a success. But unlike the last one, the Shuttle was approved for operating in space without a specific mission and goal for the mission. The Shuttle project was politically and economically not strong. It was also sold as a partnership with the ESA to improve international and social relations as it would combine people from different countries, races and sex for the crew. The Shuttle complete or exceed NASA 's promises.
The speech is quite optimistic as the author hopes that poverty and racism are vices that can easily be overcome. He points out alternative ways of dealing with injustice, violence, and social oppressions. This way, the author appeals to people’s rational judgment to choose peaceful ways of handling social issues. The value of peace dominates the author’s speech. He recognizes that the Nobel Prize is an honor to many other leaders that are spearheading the struggle to end “man’s inhumanity to man.” Thesis of Luther’s Speech The author expresses the struggle that the civil rights activists and other leaders in the world are making to end racial injustice, poverty, and militarism by adopting a more peaceful approach to violence and oppression.
Franklin D Roosevelt: Civil Rights Movement Franklin D Roosevelt has made many choices in the civil right movement that have led them to get the African Americans their rights that they wanted. He is one of the main reasons the civil rights even happened. Roosevelt made big contributes to the civil rights because he believed that the African Americans deserved the same rights that the white people had. Franklin Roosevelt has helped in so many ways and impacted so manty lives it’s unreal. “Roosevelt decided early on that he wanted to follow in his cousin Theodore's footsteps as a public servant.
The movie showed how history affected the pursuit of scientific truth. If the world had not only been to war, the World War 1 specifically, Einstein and Eddington wouldn’t have troubles communicating with each other that would enable the two of them to exchange ideas freely, thus exploring more
The colonization of the moon is a step in which must be taken before the colonization of Mars is even feasible. This is due to the fact that the moon would be a cheaper colony that would set the foundation for colonizing a much tougher landmass, like Mars. An advocate of this belief is Nasa’s planetary scientist Chris Mckay who had to say the following on the topic of Moon colonization, “My interest is not the moon. To me the moon is as dull as a ball of concrete, but we're not going to have a research base on Mars until we can learn how to do it on the Moon first. The moon provides a blueprint to Mars.” Without a blueprint, it becomes significantly harder to build a colony and the rate of failure will rise.
Cancer and Mono still haven’t found a cure but, with the help of space travel, people can explore space and find other materials to find a cure for diseases. “Medicine has been revolutionized by the space program. We learned to monitor orbiting astronauts- pioneering telemedicine & leading to unprecedented improvements in patient monitoring”(Fowler, 1). Funding for space exploration could help physicians go into space, test materials, bring them back (if promising), and use them on patients. Also adding to that, “ We would be a much more healthy planet and society, if we stopped warring with each other and wasting precious minerals that we have on this Earth -on- war, we would have more resources to spend on more important things such as daily
According to David Bohm, author of On Communication, “such communication can lead to the creation of something new only if people are able freely to listen to each other, without prejudice, and without trying to influence each other” (15). If only these two-young educated black men would have openly communicated with each other, would they have sparked a difference in the Civil Rights Movement? Sadly, we will never know. But, it was because of their close-mindedness/stubbornness that ultimately cut off the benefits of both of their acquired knowledge and altered the possible outlook of
The speech ‘I have a dream’ by Martin Luther King presents the theme of undying hope and racial equality. King represents a segregated social groups by referencing them to the rich and the poor, the assailant and the victim, the debtor and creditor to emphasize the importance of freedom and justice which powerfully encourages the audience to create changes in their lives for the prosperity of America. Through the use of extended metaphors, inclusive pronoun and languages which evoke a sense of ethos, King unequivocally and effectively gets his argument across that the citizens of America have the power to generate “great” nation. In introducing an exclusive group with power and privilege, King proclaims the governor of Alabama had “dripping with the words of interposition and nullification”. By referring him metaphorically as “dripping” animal, King disparages the rich to express that the racial prejudice is inhumane and filthy act.
When reading a speech the reader may interpret it easier because he/she can set their own emotion in the words and phrases of the piece. For example, in Barack Obama’s “New Hampshire Primary” speech, it reads, “But the reason our campaign has always been different is because it’s not just about what I will do as president, it’s also about what you, the people who love this country, can do to change it” (Obama). Through Obama’s words, the reader can identify and insert emotion into the speech wherever he/she feels necessary. His words emit feelings of motivation and inspiration, inspiring the reader to make a change for the better of the nation. On the contrary, listening to a speech may make it harder for a listener to comprehend the main points because the speaker sets the emotion through powerful words or phrases.
