In the quote, Steidle states that Americans only think about Darfur when it hits the front page of the news. Many people might feel concerned for Darfur when they see its name on the headlines but no one is willing to stand up and fight against the ongoing
Senator Joe McCarthy of Wisconsin believed communism was the most daunting threat to the American government at the time. Moreover, most Americans had only heard of communism, but were generally unaware of the topic until McCarthy preached his opinions. After his speech to the Republican National Convention in 1952, American citizens suddenly felt a responsibility to rid the country of communists. Although the thought of communism did not pose a danger to the average American, McCarthy’s rampant speeches made unknowing citizens feel a sense of urgency toward the topic. One reason Americans heard little of communism is because the government did not want them to know.
He campaigned for international laws for defining and forbidding genocide and a ban against crimes against humanity. His proposals however, were turned down at the Paris Peace Conference of 1945. The reason very few people protest against these actions is that most people are concerned about their problems. We are not capable of putting our attention towards the greatest occasions of human misery. This is one reason Raphael Lemkin had his proposals turned down at the conference.
How would you feel people would feel knowing that they were ingesting contaminated foods? This was the case in the late 18th hundred and early 19th hundred many social and economic problems came to be in the United States. For example, one of the many problems that arose during these years were the sanitation conditions in the companies. To be more precise, food companies were getting away with many of the inspections the government would act on. Meat packing industries were becoming more unsafe everyday.
Many politicians did not feel we needed to create an American Red Cross because they did not feel we would go into another war and thought it to be unnecessary during peacetime. Others felt that joining an international society might give other countries the chance to interfere with our government. In order to publicize the solutions to these problems, Barton wrote a booklet called “The Red Cross of the Geneva Convention: What It Is.” In the booklet, Barton explained that the treaty of Geneva did not try to control foreign governments but just provided guidelines for the fair treatment of prisoners of war. She also mentioned that members of the Red cRoss should be considered neutral aid and that those wearing the symbol of the Red Cross should not be harmed. Another thing Barton expressed was that the Red Cross did not have to be used in a time of war.
So, all of the apologies were unneeded. Yes, I understand that we should accept and let him take care of business. But, he isn’t make very smart choices. Rick Snyder is governor so he is suppose to govern us meaning “take care of” so if you wanted to be a governor and accepted not to help people in a crisis such as The Flint Water Crisis then most definitely you should step down. The last reason why people don’t understand why Rick Snyder should step down is because Rick Snyder knew about the water being contaminated.
Bush does not appeal to logic at all in this speech. He simply tries to pick up a heartbroken and scared nation. In a time like that people don't want to hear facts and statistics which make them logically think. They only want to be comforted and assured that their circumstances can only get better from there. If he gave statistics and facts about 9/11 he would only upset the people.
The only American who stayed was Asa Kent Jennings. Without anybody to advise him on the best course of action, Jennings had to decide on what he felt needed to be done. Seeing the thousands of refugees cowering on the shore, Jennings met with Mustafa Kemal, the Turkish Supreme Leader. Although Kamal did not intend to exterminate the refugees, he had no intention of removing them from their poor conditions on the shore. Jennings met with Kamal to ask for his permission to move the refugees to a safer place.
Surely, he doesn’t. Due to his incompetency, Louis Sears lacks the ability to understand their language, culture, and history. Including with that, he sent his report to Washington, and he falsely claimed that “Sarkhan is more firmly than ever on the side of America”; yet he hardly interacted with any of the natives (page 78). This imbecile’s ignorance is as repulsive as Homer Atkins’s liverish-freckled and veiny hands. Though, he had no desire to exterminate communism, he purposely intended to waste two years in Sarkhan, until federal judgeship opened up.
Although this claim may be true in some respects it is not entirely true as Ibo people seem to unite against one cause, but they do not actually take action. For example, after Okonkwo kills a messenger it states, “Okonkwo stood looking at the dead man. He knew that Umuofia would not go to war. He knew because they had let the other messengers escape” (205). These actions show us that the Ibo people are all talk and no bite, meaning their words do not describe their actions.
