This was effective because he uses sarcasm to show that there is no chance at peace or reconciliation with Britain after this is over. Ultimately, Pathos was the most effective form of rhetoric used in the speech.
Comparing Trump to past presidents also conveying a message that trump is lowering the expectations for future presidents.

He opens his argument saying, “rhetoric is the counterpart of Dialectic” (490), showing that in order for one to understand rhetoric, the relationship between rhetoric and dialectic should be understood first. He explains the similarities, saying that, “both are faculties for providing arguments”, displaying that both are used in speech to debate a topic (494). By using this he also explains what the terms mean, as they are both persuasion techniques. He then defines the term more clearly and states, “Rhetorical study, in its strict sense, is concerned with the modes of persuasion. Persuasion is clearly a sort of demonstration”(491).
Herbert’s Rhetorical Strategies included logic and historical evidence in order to prove his point. His use of words and phrases like “you will agree…we feel it's necessary… use another line…. we appreciate your cooperation...your assurance”, creating a demanding and confident tone.

I do agree with Socrates that rhetoric is mostly misused and dangerous for both the speaker and the listener. I believe rhetoric is dangerous for the speaker because that person maybe don’t understand how much power they hold over someone. It can be dangerous for the listener for the simply fact is the information they’ve been give may or may not be correct. I think past experience motivated Socrates feel this way about the usage of rhetoric. One example that Socrates proves that rhetoric is being misused is his example of the physician and I agree because this happens now in the world.
Alexander Pope's "Rape of the Locke" is a complex piece of literature that comments on the foolish mindsets of the nobility, notably: the foolishness of placing supreme value on physical beauty. Pope communicates this view in a variety of ways, but it is made most visible when observing language and form.
