East Berliniers exemplified feelings of imprisonment, from being trapped and communistically controlled on their side of the wall. Unlike the west side, the east side does not represent any sense of freedom. Pathos is the appeal to emotions. Therefore, this use of pathos helps Reagan persuade Gorbachev to take down the wall because it shows that, without any wall both societies would operate as one, indicating freedom for all. The rhetorical elements, logos and pathos, included in Ronald Reagan’s speech, “ Tear Down This Wall” assist Reagan and his words to convince Gorbachev, along with the people of Berlin, that the wall between eastern and western Berlin must be dismantled.

As such, I find the reason that a backlash exists to what 's right is because any view, right or wrong, will challenge someone as wrong, and no one wants to be wrong. This is evident in any war, whether over religion, political views, or just wanting to show why you’re the strongest.
