William McEwen Professor Weatheril English 121.4 September 13, 2016 Rhetorical Analysis “Reasons are bullshit”(Roth 41), author Bernard Roth states in his book The Achievement Habit. Chapter two which is based on reasons and the BS behind them gives great detail of what the mind truly thinks, but just doesn't fully interpret. Roth covers this topic with lots of personal beliefs and evidence. Roth touches on all the topics of rhetorical appeals throughout the entire second chapter, in an efficient, but very unusual way. Roth likes to speak directly to the soul and heart of the reader, using real life examples, along with personal evidence.
Two of his brothers then passed away when he was still small. And his parents believed that even though he was very sick, he would live. As he was older he had many accomplishments. When he was older he changed his name. He wrote many books, such as the famous “Prince and The Popper” and “Huckleberry Finn”.
The fact that his brother helped out, he wanted to volunteer even more eager to help as well in the war. Unfortunately, the timing of his liking was bad, because the war became more intense. In the city of Toronto, Pearson enrolled at Victoria University in 1913 at the age of sixteen, which was too young to volunteer to join the military forces. He also attended St John 's College in Oxford, and McGill University. Afterward, on April 23rd, 1915, Lester Pearson joined the University of Toronto’s hospital unit and became part of the Canadian Army Medical Corps and left the country a while later.
Jonas refuses to go to the annex room because he doesn't want any more memories of pain. Jonas has a long way of memories to go, there could be good ones and bad ones.In The Giver Lowry writes, ”he didn't want the memories, didn't want the honor, didn't want the wisdom, did not want the pain”.This shows us that Jonas doesn't care about any of the wisdom, and honor, he just want no more pain and memories.
JL Mackie was persuasive in his argument by showing that belief in an almighty God is not rational. He proves this by posing the problem of evil. According to JL Mackie, if God exists and is omniscient, omnipotent, and good then evil would not exist. However, evil exists in this world, sometimes in the form of undeserved suffering (diseases that affect humans, earthquakes, famines ...) and others perpetrated by man (murders, wars ...). If God exists and has the capability to be powerful, good, omniscient and omnipotent, why would he let evil be perpetrated?

They are not allowed to have individual thoughts about anything what so ever. This shows that Ayn Rand believes that if you follow others and not lead yourself or what you believe. Instead of being a leader bad things will happen. Which brings me to the conclusion. These are the reasons why “Anthem” is a dystopia theme.
Huxley feared that eventually nobody would know the truth about the world because they would become so oblivious and the truth would become irrelevant. This is evident in Brave New World with the well known saying, “history is bunk.” Nobody in the novel wants to learn about the past because the society has made it undesirable to do so. Instead, they focus on the present and improving for the future. Another example of Postman’s assertion in the book is the fact that nobody reads. Mustapha Mond explains to John that books are prohibited because these people “couldn’t understand it.” I see this in society today as well.
In addition, Randy conveys that he and other Socs are trapped by stereotype threat because “he kept trying to make someone say ‘No’ and they never did. They never did. That was what he wanted. For somebody to tell him ‘No’. To have somebody lay down the law, set the limits, give something solid to stand on.
Some men simply refused, others got sick, and several left early. The most famous reason on why delegates refused to sign the document was the lack of the Bill of Rights. John Adams and Thomas Jefferson were unable to sign this document because they were overseas. "The founding principles built into the structure of the document itself are of a general
