Reagan’s rhetorical style was fundamental in defining him as a president. In fact, many believe that his speech at the Brandenburg Gate was directly responsible for the collapse of communism. To determine if this is so, it is essential to critically examine his rhetorical strategies and understand who Regan was as a person. Ronald Regan was born in Tampico, Illinois, on February 6, 1911 to Nelle and Jack Regan, a low-income Roman Catholic family. Yet despite his family’s lack of prominence, he went on to do quite a bit in his early life; Regan graduate from Eureka College in 1932, worked as a sports announcer on several regional radio stations, and eventually moved to Los Angeles, California in 1937 to become a professional actor.

Assassination may seem like a good idea when dealing with megalomaniacs and dictators such as Adolf Hitler, Joseph Stalin, Saddam Hussein, etc. but as we have learned throughout history that there are always people who are more than willing to pick up where they left off and sometimes the original is the lesser of the two evils.
Fahrenheit 451 and The Hunger Games are both ruled by an oppressive government in a futuristic society. In Fahrenheit 451 the government keeps the people in check by using the power of ignorance. They purposely make sure the people’s only source of outside knowledge is through technology they control, TV.

On July 10th of 1925, in the heated town of Dayton, Tennessee, a great debate culminated in the greatest joke of the year.

A small amount of the people are rich politicians, military leaders or business people. The other large group of people are poor and live under the control of the government.
