Thomas Paine wrote Common Sense to convince the American people that they needed independence from England. In order to make it widespread and popular, the pamphlet had to be accessible, with language that everyone could understand. Of course, the language that was considered accessible in 1776 isn 't necessarily accessible in 2018. Enter Lin-Manuel Miranda (she says in parentheses). His musical, Hamilton, modernizes Common Sense 's wordy view on America: the country is on the brink of chaos because being England 's income creates pointless enemies for America.
However the more one looks in depth at the main characters, the easier it becomes to understand their similarities. Holden Caulfield and Jay Gatsby share the need to hold on to what was once. Both characters grasp so tightly to memories in the past, it blinds them to reality in present-day. This is mainly a result of both characters being idealists and rejecting change. Whilst both characters thrive in the past they struggle in reality with their individual distinct flaws.
this is a pointy contradiction which fits into Fitzgerald’s attempt to use satire to prove the purpose that the dream has died. The novel the great Gatsby uses satire to indicate that the American Dream is dead throughout the roaring twenties. Fitzgerald does this through subtle comparisons and commenting on the valley of Ashes, Gatsby’s parties, Gatsby himself, and Myrtle and George Wilson.

Some of the taxes that were implemented onto the Americans were the Sugar and Stamp act, Navigation act, Wool act, Hat act, the Proclamation of 1763, the Quartering Act, Townshend Acts, and the Coercive Intolerable Acts, (Document Five).

Those events included; the boston massacre, the French Indian war, Boston Tea Party, and many more, (Document four) As seen the British lead themselves onto the wrong path by trying to tighten their grip on the colonist but ended up hurting themselves when their actions added more fuel to the Americans fire.
She flips this negative opening statement with cheerful quotes about those flashy plastic industries of the 50s. She makes Americans in the 50s look like someone trying to defend Steph Curry, goofy and silly. She continues to do so by further explaining Americans’ obsession with the color pink by giving examples of household items that come in all shades of pink, including Elvis Presley’s pink Cadillac, which isn’t really a household item, but still beloved by Americans. By using this structure, she is able to effectively expand her
Advertisements are everywhere, on television, radio, social media, billboards, magazines, and even on yearbooks. On the other hand, would it not be nice if every advertisement an individual saw, read, or heard were actually true? Like using Axe body spray really did attract women or eating Snickers truly made one satisfied in seconds? Yet, most of the time the advertisements that seem too good to be true, actually are. In fact, countless of ads are only slightly true and instead filled with many common errors in reasoning, known as logical fallacies, a sneaky marketing technique companies utilize to trick a consumer into giving them their undivided attention and money.
One example of this in O Pioneers! Would come in chapter 1 of part 1 when Alexandra says "Yes. He is coming over to-morrow. But he says father can 't get better; can 't get well.". This is an example of realism in that she is just saying it how it is instead of trying to sugar coat it.

What were they going to do? Are there other witches out there that could hurt them? The hysteria quickly grew and accusations were flying left and right (Wilson) In the same month, four other women were accused and arrested. Most of these women that were accused were social outcasts.
The fact that you will be judged on every little detail may cause you to rethink if being an american is all it 's said to be. In the poem “ America “ by Claude McKay she says “I love this cultured hell that tests my youth! Her vigor flows like tides into my blood, Giving me strength erect against her hate.” (p14) This quote is a prime example of how being an American is bittersweet.
First, the media can easily persuade the American people to think what they want for instance; in the movie Wag the Dog they make the public believe that they really are at war when everything they are showing is fake (movie). “The vast majority of journalists at these major outlets are generally liberal” and so if they are liberal they will write what they think about the situation (Washington Examiner). By them doing that they get all the American people to believe what they believe. “Some claiming that there is no such thing as media bias and that the republican candidates were just upset about the tough questioning” which is really just another one of the writers opinions.
