In the speech Chavez says, “We are also convinced that nonviolence is more powerful than violence.” He then goes on to say that violence causes deaths and demoralizes the people, while nonviolence attracts people’s support and is morally just. The use of juxtaposition as a rhetorical device throughout the whole speech shows the pros of nonviolence and the cons of violence. This technique helps Chavez develop his argument because it creates a favorable bias
“Civil Disobedience” is an essay written by Henry David Thoreau about people needing to put their conscience ahead of the government rulings by criticizing American policies and beliefs. He expresses his opinion of a “government is best which governs least” (Thoreau 305) by heavily supporting his topic and by using rhetorical techniques. Rhetorical devices are used in papers for the writer to better persuade the audience or to better understand the topic they are writing about; they can also be used to play with the reader’s emotions. The rhetorical devices that have the most impact on the reader in Thoreau’s essay are allusions, rhetorical questions, pathos, imagery, and chronological narrative.
For example, the critics of the environmental movement claim the environmentalists are a threat to personal freedom and if they are put in a position of power, “property rights go down the tube.” Similarly, the environmentalists obliquely associate the critics with the Nazi regime by saying “unrestrained capitalism with land development uber alles.” These attacks are incredibly vicious, but they lack credibility. Neither group makes an argument that is supported by statistics and logical reasoning. Rather, Wilson uses effective propaganda techniques and crafts brash and accusatory statements to show how each group attempts to vilify the other and how it is ultimately
The use of rhetorical devices, such as parallelism and rhetorical questions, builds towards Sanders’ ultimate claim, so when it is finally made, he has already swayed the reader to understand the consequences related to migration. He begins with the
The concept of enlightened absolutism can be described through the actions of King Frederick II of Prussia. The late 18th century leader was an outstanding example of an enlightened absolutist. Rulers who accepted the newfound Enlightenment rationalism and made the forward-thinking policies into laws became known as enlightened absolutists. Gaining its momentum among the working class and eventually expanding to the aristocracy, Enlightenment ideologies questioned the traditional social and political practices of the time. Former Russian historian and professor at Columbia University Marc Raeff claimed, “The very contradiction inherent in the notion of enlightened absolutism doomed the effort to failure” (1221).
John Locke asserted that government must come from the consent of the governed. The Declaration of Independence professed the right of all people to life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness. The Constitution cemented the paramount prominence of general welfare for all United States citizens. Since our beginning, we the people have been a characteristically empathetic majority. But we have not always been a beacon of equality: the Civil Rights movement of the 1960s, the Stonewall Riots, and even current conflicts between the police force and black Americans exemplify the occasional rift between the government and the governed.
Lewis complicates the matters further when attacking government officials for “nine of our leader being indicted…by the federal government for peaceful protests” (para 6.5). In other words, the government responds when a group of citizens becomes a threat intending to create changes. The immediate reaction is suppression of radical actions. Lewis includes logos in order to engage the audience about the harsh behavior of the police. By including a historical evidence, Lewis’s argument is stronger rather than providing a claim without proof.
Hoffman suggests that Thomas Paine rhetorical leadership was implemented by using the term “prejudice” to frame negative perceptions of American Independence; and positive perceptions of the British constitution as being distorted by the force of custom and habit. His thesis statement stated that he will discuss one of the two arguments in hopes that it will contribute to ongoing conversation about how Common Sense succeeded so dramatically and explore the relationship between “perpetual framing” and rhetorical leadership. David Hoffman explains that his essay is divided into three parts. The first section reviews the historical context of Common Sense. David Hoffman explains in this section Thomas Paine’s life and the journey it took writing Common Sense.
Over the past years, technological advancements have been expanding at an exponential rate which means that the world Aldous Huxley had envisioned in Brave New World will soon come. Neil Postman, a social critic, examines Huxley’s vision of the future and gave interesting points about how Huxley’s society is relevant to ours. Postman believed that Huxley feared that there won’t be a reason to ban a book, that the truth will be drowned in irrelevance, and that our desires will ruin us. While some of these assertions are true, opponents may argue that there’s always a reason to banning something. This is untrue because you don't necessarily need a reason to ban something that society doesn't need.
This is achieved by using outrageous examples and using language such as “left-winged guerrillas” and “right-winged death squads” to refer to the opposing sides. Fiorina refers to political polarization as “sheer nonsense,” and uses derogatory wording causes the reader to have a negative view on political polarization and not want to be associated with such radical ideas. This set the stage for Fiorina to present his opinion as a
The author continuously relies on a series of factual events that relate to what her particular arguments are. She attempts to prove to the reader that acting because of moral authority is what brings some of the biggest changes in society today. She states, “There are as many reasons to hope as to fear a new disappointment…” (pg.899) demonstrating to the reader than a protesters’ actions will not always result in a positive outcome. The style chosen by the author suits her purpose of giving the reader a clear view on what moral authority is and how it can impact the
Although activist documentaries may now have more popularity than they ever had before, their strategy to reach large audiences started long before its new found spotlight was created. Robert Greenwald, a master in activist documentary film, has specialized in the creation of controversial documentaries and distribution for nearly two decades. Throughout his time as a filmmaker, he has greatly reshaped the way politically relevant documentaries are created and viewed. In an interview on his distinguished distribution strategies, Greenwald explains how the immediacy of a political documentary requires quick distribution in order to stay relevant. To accomplish such a task, Greenwald started implementing grassroots screenings and house viewing parties (Haynes et al. 3).
To elaborate, media sources such as newspapers and news channels can be identified as either ‘right-wing’ or ‘left-wing’ politics. In reference to ‘The Concise Oxford Dictionary of Politics’, right-wing politics can be defined as the
