Here, Martin Luther King Jr. is inferring that violence is not necessary to convey a message or fight for what one believes, and that attaining justice isn 't limited to the act of violence. King does not believe in using violence to fight violence and uses ethos to appeal to the audience: "Whatever affects one directly, affects all indirectly" (King 65). This is similar to the saying that two wrongs don 't make a right. King is acknowledging that being violent to respond to violence is only going to cause more chaos which in terms is not right; he is thinking about consequence. Malcolm X 's speech is fueled with anger and rage.
This quote is important because if people in power still say “wait” for justice to be fix then, that will be ‘Never’ be fixed.

This question does not have a clear-cut answer, or any answer, to that end; the use of rhetoric in this line aims to enlighten the listeners to potential threat, and put them on edge, so to speak. The tricks which Dylan speaks of are largely rooted in the denial and repression of the earthbound nature of human existence, and through this, he warns the audience to be on guard, so that they may not be tempted into denying the finite nature of life. Further on in the lyrics, imagery and personification are utilised simultaneously in the line: “The ghost of electricity howls in the bones of her face/Where these visions of Johanna have now taken my place”.

Johanna is representative of the incorporeal aspect of a human being, the spiritual soul, as contrasted with Louise, who is representative with the corporeal and sensual aspect of humans, the body.
