She believes that our current American system of mass incarceration due to the rise in drug related arrested, is an attempt to neglect people of color, the same way that the Jim Crow laws had targeted African Americans in the 19th and 20th centuries. The second theme is Denial and Ignorance of the American people. The only way we can shed light on this issue is to educate the people into thinking differently about civil rights.

However, the very little she does use is primarily pathos to grab the audience’s attention. She discusses the price jumps of two medicines (Retrophin and Daraphim). According to the speaker, Shkrelli was the man behind both of the price changes. Pathos is used by the attempt to make the audience empathize the consumers that have faced the cruelty of the pharmaceutical industry and their ridiculous price changes. While trying to incite emotions she uses logos by inputting statistics of the price jump which is said to be about twenty times for Retrophin and about fifty five times for
My home state of Minnesota is currently dealing with what Richard Nixon states was “public enemy number one”, and this is a drug crisis, in particular an opioid crisis that has taken the lives of 395 Minnesotans just in 2016. What is the current government doing to help solve this problem? They declared it a national public health crisis but other than that they have pushed for stricter drug control like Nixon did back during his presidency. Nixon started the war on drugs to help him win his presidential campaign and it has been something that has had negative effects to Americans ever since. The War On Drugs has been a failure to the American people through its adverse effect on African American communities, its establishment of unjust mandatory
The repealing of ObamaCare clearly has the potential to adversely affect a quarter million people, who are currently receiving treatment for opioid based addictions. Trump used talk on the topic of drugs and crime to support his primary stance on border control and immigration. He used a rhetoric that mixed a number of topics and presented his political agenda in a popular
This caused panic about health and brought with it heavy dietary policies from the federal government. The fifth event is how rock and roll defeated communism. Not only is rock the embodiment of freedom, but it became a vessel for anti communist extremists to reach young people. The sixth event is how Ronald Reagan wrongfully pulled out of Lebanon. Schweikart explained how this move made America seem weak and put a target on our back for terrorist organizations.
The author also states that because manufacturer’s are no longer providing correctional centers with the drugs, the states are considering bringing execution methods from centuries ago back in practice. Alternative execution methods such as the electric chair are being considered. The discontinued legal drugs and shortage has caused secrecy in how the drugs are obtained. Because correctional centers are buying drugs from the Indian black market illegally, the Drug Enforcement Administration
Big corporations create division within our society and shaped the world we call home. Herbert an executive of Coca- Cola narrates the fact that Haskins advertisement of his novel should have not used “it’s a real thing” because it will caused confusion, but on the other hand Seaver mocks Herbert in order to correct what he states. Grove Press and Coca-Cola argument sound ridiculous and humorous due to the fact they are simple fighting over a slogan. They eventually criticized one another as form of persuading each other and realized their mistakes. In this additionally, Seaver sounded more persuasive due to use of rhetorical devices of hyperbole and ethos.
The documentary was informative about information that is discussed globally, but is not explained in full detail about the negative aspects that non-political people actually see. For example, the “war on drugs,” was originally started by President Nixon. The rumored main objective was to throw black people away and antiwar left. I believe that white people were fearful of black people after the 13th amendment was passed, which formally ended slavery in 1865. From 1865 till now, some people still express that fear because black people have all the freedoms and rights that everyone else has.
Rivalry also began to form against the Americans between Mexico. In Document 6 it states, ¨ in order for the US to succeed they would need to invade Mexico.¨ This led to many deaths in the Mexican culture. A lot of Mexicans had to move away from the danger and the wars that were bound to happen. When the war between Mexico and the US occurred, Mexico lost a lot of land. On the website "ThoughtCo" it says, “ the Mexican lands were considerably harder to attain.¨ This means that when the Americans discovered that Mexico was having trouble taking care of their land it was made easier for them to take it away because they knew that they could benefit from it by selling the land.
Many people were against the amount of power it gave to the government. In his speech, the president talks about this saying, “I shall ask the Congress for the one remaining instrument to meet the crisis—broad Executive power to wage a war against the emergency, as great as the power that would be given to me if we were in fact invaded by a foreign foe.” Here the president was asking for executive power to fight the Great Depression. He wanted power to regulate things like prices, and production in factories and farming. Some believed that too much government involvement in the economy was a step towards communism. They didn't want the government to have that much control.
