Past leaders such as Andrew Jackson, Adolf Hitler, Benito Mussolini, and Marc Antony are evidence that society does not reward morality and good character in leadership. Society is drawn to leaders that have good rhetoric, propaganda, and charismatic personalities, and society supports them despite their immorality. Society is concerned about stability more than the morality of their leaders and will support immoral leaders in times of crisis to provide stability. In history there have been multiple leaders that have used rhetoric, propaganda and charismatic personalities to gain power, despite their morals.
Activity theory, as interpreted by Ph.D. candidates, Wardle and Kain, is a process that attempts to see all aspects of activity such as social interactions and use of writing and language to achieve goals. This theory is award winning. Activity theory states that for a system to be effective, the rules, community, subject, division of labor, and motives must be reasonable. These components are shown through the chosen tool of communication most often. When one area of the system is corrupted, the tool will no longer function correctly in order to communicate or achieve its goals.
How can an author get the reader attention? Readers don’t like to read boring books, articles or essay. There are many strategy an author can use such as an ethos, pathos, and logos. The author can either use an emotional appeal, which is pathos, the usage of statistic and facts makes it logos, when an author builds up their character they are using ethos. When analyzing I asked myself what are these concepts used for and how can one recognize these strategies when reading?
A Dream for the Nation Michaelangelo Landgrave and Alex Nowrasteh (2017), a doctoral student in political science and an immigration policy analyst, argue in their informative article The DREAMer Incarceration Rate that DREAMers are less crime-prone than Native-born Americans. Landgrave’s and Nowrasteh’s (2017) purpose is to insist that Congress should expand the parameters of a future legalization for DREAMers. They employ logos, ethos, as well as juxtaposition, in order to convey to their readers the idea that DREAMers are less crime-prone than Native-born Americans. In their article, Landgrave and Nowrasteh (2017) employ the use of credibility of the speaker.
Sam Baxter Ms. Patrick English 9-6 20 January 2023 Brutality in All-American Boys Readers often times cannot relate to situations in books, whether they be bizarre, make-believe fictional stories, or real things that happen to people. The solution is to use stylistic techniques to help readers understand what characters are going through and highlight their struggles in a relatable way. The book All-American Boys by Jason Reynolds and Brendan Kiely uses various stylistic techniques to develop a brutal tone. The tone of brutality is created by using such techniques as sentence structure, sensory details, and simile.
Rhetorical Analysis Draft Three “The Privileges of The Parents” is written by Margaret A. Miller, a Curry School of Education professor at the University of Virginia in Charlottesville. This woman was a project director for the Pew-sponsored National Forum on college level learning from 2002-2004. This forum assessed the skills and knowledge of college educated students in five states by a way that allowed the test givers to make state-by-state comparisons. Miller believes that “[a] college education has benefits that ripple down through the generations” and this has enabled her to work and speak on topics such as: college level learning and how to evaluate it, change in higher education, the public responsibilities of higher education, campus
Politicians call for missile defense projects. Many defense projects have failed and cost not only the government but taxpayers over 50 billion dollars. Lee Fang, a writer for The Intercept, shows how ineffective these programs have been in the past. The persuasiveness of Lee's argument in his article “Politicians Use North Korea H-Bomb Fears to Pitch Wasteful Missile Defense Projects” is based on a logical approach using facts, (logos), an emotion approach trying to rally us up (pathos), and on his credibility and the creditability of his sources (ethos). Lee's appeal to our logical (logos) side is based on facts.
Logos is the appeal of logic and reasoning, and lastly, pathos is using emotion to persuade the reader. Through these appeals, Bronson tries to address parents about their children lying, their causes and effects, and showing them what their children is capable of. Bronson achieves ethos through the use of statistical evidence to support his claim. This scientific evidence persuades skeptical readers to trust in the outcome of real situation proving that children have the capability to lie at a young
Pathos is all about emotion which generally pulls in readers to continue reading and learning about the issues. With the logos and ethos that go throughout the article, they both really contribute to the pathos in a way. Bringing more attention to different strengths of pathos or emotion. A section where pathos is really seen is in the fifth paragraph of the article. Stating, “They’re often uncomfortable when their girls have to travel long distances to school (making them more subject to sexual predators)”
Since entering office, President Donald Trump has taken a hostile stance towards Iran, and now threatens to end the era of rapprochement that prevailed during the Obama Administration. This would be a significant mistake that would bode ill for both the United States and Iran. While detractors of President Obama’s policy towards Iran argue that it strengthens the oppressive regime of Supreme Leader Ali Khamenei, the opposite is actually true. Friendly relations between the United States and Iran undermine the fear mongering rhetoric of Khamenei and his hardliner allies and strengthen the arguments of the reformist coalition in Iran. The success of this more moderate faction of Iranians serves United States’ interests in that it eliminates an
1) I could not find a Thesis. Throughout the essay, he talks about how college-level writers can most times be boring and repetitive when it comes to their essays. 2) He says the first step is to write down the argument that comes to mind, but to not use it, because that’s probably what everyone else is going to write about. 3) He recommends avoiding obvious content, taking the less usual side and to always write everything as vigorously as possible.
Many share the misconception that racism is a problem of the past. To them, prejudice has entirely ceased to exist, and today, humanity bears witness to a nondiscriminatory world. The flippant citing of Martin Luther King’s “I Have a Dream,” perhaps even validates this new, egalitarian society emerging; however, such a society is merely an illusion. In fact, a minor offense as simple as citing “I Have a Dream” may not seem a big deal; however, many anthropologists contend that the telltale signs of institutionalized racism are present in these seemingly innocent actions. Furthermore, scholars Elizabeth Barnert and Terry Jones examine the state of institutionalized racism in their respective articles.
Abstract In the contemporary capitalist society, the marketing of higher education adopts a highly capitalist-focused rhetoric, with commercials promoting students’ choices in favour of specific educational establishments for financial and not intellectual reasons. Educational institutions use various methods and techniques of persuasion to frame the audience’s beliefs and values in favour of certain educational choices. In connection with pervasive presence of propaganda techniques in marketing, this paper presents a visual and rhetorical analysis of higher education print advertisements’ analysis. This analytical study is intended to show how marketers of higher education reinforce problematic representations that can be read as discriminatory
Couple examples of logos was when Skloot’s mentions, “According to Howard Jones and other gynecologic oncologists I talked with, the correct diagnosis wouldn’t have changed the way Henrietta’s cancer was treated”(Skloot 172) and “In 1928 a German virologist named Harald zur Hausen discovered a new strain of a sexually transmitted virus called Human Papilloma Virus 18 (HPV-18).'' (Skloot 212) She uses reliable sources and discreetly informs the reader that she isn’t saying things out of thin air but instead she uses proper sources to validate her points in her novel. She uses logos by discussing scientific information and explanations, as well as the degree of Henrietta’s impact on
Let Girls Learn In her efforts to raise awareness for women’s rights at the Let Girls Learn event in early 2016, Michelle Obama, an American lawyer and the first African American First Lady of the Unites States, strategically writes her speech to display the conditions girls around the world endure to live a life without the simple right to an education. She develops her speech through the use of gratitude as a connection to the public, an appeal to pathos and the final shift in tense to establish hope among the people. Together, these strategies allow Michelle Obama to inform the society that they must unite as one in order to effectively and successfully support the education of girls around the world. Obama begins by making a personal connection with the public through gratitude for their endless efforts to assist in the program.
