I believe that these two sources are very useful to a historian studying the Marshall Plan, as they clearly demonstrate the distinctive differences between the Soviet response and the American response to the Marshall Plan and the motivation behind it, and therefore help a historian to understand why it was so controversial and caused a lot of tension between the two superpowers. Source A presents the Orthodox view toward the Marshall Plan, from George Marshall the creator himself. This source is very useful to a historian, it tells us that the USA clearly felt that it was necessary for them to launch the Marshall Plan to help Europe recover from the war as this would be beneficial to the USA, after William Clayton returned from a fact-finding
By playing on the fear and patriotism of his audience, pathos is also utilized in the most effective of ways. In wartime, pride in one’s home is essential, and Winston makes sure to capitalize on this by instating a sense of importance within his listeners. In his speech he says that if they fail there will be “no survival for the British Empire, no survival for all that the British Empire has stood for”. Churchill knows that if Britain is to be victorious, they must understand the gravity of the situation at hand, and feel they have the ability to sway the tide of the war with their own power. In later saying that Great Britain is “ in the preliminary stage of one of the greatest battles in history” and that across their country “the air battle is continuous and that many preparations have to be made here at home” he plays at the spark of fear that has no doubt taken shelter in the hearts of those who’re listening.
The famous Martin Luther king’s letter, The wise Martin Luther king wrote this letter to not only persuade but to make a change on the rising problem which you will read in, '' Letter from Birmingham Jail ''. This famous and informative yet persuading letter touches bases on the problems that surround us, whether physically or verbally. Martin Luther king thought enough was enough and that we should take a stand. He tells us this by using lots of ways to persuade his readers by the act of using metaphors. He uses similes to give us an example of what he means.
Brinkley credited them and said they were able to challenge the nation’s economic and political system through the use of the radio. Historians classify Long and Coughlin as leaders of irrational, anti-democratic uprisings but Brinkley argued they called for a society in which the individual remained in control of his own life and livelihood (Brinkley, xi). Through his text, he argued they gave evidence of survival in the 1930s of the long American tradition and on the other hand it gave compelling evidence
The use of the paradox in The Great Influenza by John M. Barry reveals seemingly contradictory statements true. In the second paragraph Barry believes that one must "embrace – uncertainty" (Barry). He uses this literacy device to highlight uncertainty as a welcomed sensation to be accepted, rather than denied. Along with presenting truthful statements, Barry makes every word, phrase, and sentence that he writes ultimately more powerful and read at different understanding levels by raising the bar and introducing contradicting information. Barry characterizes scientific research as contradicting.
Ishmael: The Adventure of the Mind and Spirit “The law we live by is like the law of gravity: There is no escaping it, but there is a way of achievement that is equivalent of flight-“.(Ishmael, pg 105) Daniel Quinn, the award winning American author, is best known as a cultural critic and publisher of educational texts. Quinn chose to write the socially challenging novel; Ishmael, with the purpose of expressing his concern over human civilization, and to bring awareness to our self destruction in hope for it to come to an end. Quinn believes that we cannot escape our true primal instincts, and our attempts to counter the laws of nature to control the world we live in, is in fact destroying it.
The United States met the criteria of Proportionality. In his speech, Roosevelt addresses that even with possible damage that protected and preventing war is far more important in the long run. He states that “hostilities do exist” and presents that we need to demolish them for the good of the people.
A combination of doctrines and emotions – belief in permanent and universal crisis, fear of communism, faith in the duty and right of the United States to intervene swiftly in every part of the world – had brought about an unprecedented centralization of decisions over war and peace in the presidency. ”(Schlesinger 208). Playing to the constant fear of communism emerging after World War II, presidents have used that as enough of a justification to send our troops away. Surpassing congress by saying we were in imminent danger and essentially, what
Reflecting upon “the complaints of farmers … the complaints of every class public creditors” and the “melancholy faces of … working people” the Federalists knew that they needed change, and that change should come in the form of a strong national government (Frazier 61). The Federalists, in order to combat the Anti-Federalists’ fears about the national government having too much power that could result in tyranny, proposed the idea of checks and balances. Thomas Jefferson, a man with the grand vision of liberty on his mind, supported the “organization of the government into Legislative, Judiciary and Executive” branches, because with the ability of each branch to restrict the other, the possibility of tyranny and a corrupt national government was drastically reduced (Jefferson
His diction is very inclusive; he commences his speech with several uses of the words ‘we’ and ‘our’, which makes way for inclusivity. JFK is blurring the distinction between citizen and superior governor by including the people in his proclamation. While describing the hardships and challenges that the country is facing, Kennedy mentions how imperative the occasion is on a global level; in the midst of the Cold War, he reminds his audience of the importance of uniting. Through the use of the lexical field of danger — words such as: ‘defiance’, ‘serious’, ‘risk’, and ‘sacrifice’ — he creates a feeling of tension and urgency, and engages his audience to the concern. To conclude his speech, the President mentions self-guilt on the part of the country on how they had not displayed the “sense of business responsibility” that they should have, a rhetorical strategy that approximates the audience to the government.
To me, if FDR could overcome these obstacles which he did, he could move the country forward in the right direction. By not being so easily convinced or influenced by Upton Sinclair campaign or anyone else for that matter, Roosevelt became the great leader / liberal that our country was so desperately looking for to restoring
Roosevelt declares war on the Depression. The greatest primary task was to put people to work... It can be accomplished("Roosevelt"). Although he used strong words to wage the war, he also had actions to back his words up. In 1932 when he was elected...he promised the American people a New
The political theory of that states that all interest groups should compete for influence in the government is formally referred to as pluralism. James Madison understood that there will always be a conflict of interests in a society, resulting from factions, and instead of trying to remove the factions, he sought to control their effects. He illustrates how this can be done in his essay, Federalist 10, while he argues in favor of a representative form of government, that includes separated powers. He believed that if there were multiple factions competing for influence, the governments interests would shift from term to term due to the changing factions in office. This type of majority rule is referred to as a Madisonian Majority, which is
In the justice and the wheels of history, the section goes into detail of how history and conflicts cycle and repeat, almost always in the name of justice. Great wars and battles occurred when the people involved readily claim their actions and motivations out of justice, and how it must be served out of an obligated sense of morality; this is illustrated in how we as people identify with being right and just out of suffering and privilege, and how said urge for justice is used in creating new rounds of conflict. Said sense of justice looks at how polarized group thinking could become, and how concern for justice affects loyalty and group bias. Using World War II and the Holocaust as a respectful and historical example of a tragedy, this is shown in how, in the rise to power, Adolf Hitler used the lingering but potent resentment
