We are gathered here today to discuss a serious problem, I am John Butler and must stay connected to Great Britain. our heritage ties up with Britain and we will never loose this English heritage. This is causing our beloved king to punish us with taxes and horrendous acts upon us. We the people of America are being controlled by the patriot’s actions. Joseph Galloway said in 1774, “If we sincerely mean to accommodate the difference between the two countries, and to establish their union on more firm and constitutional principles, we must take into consideration a number of facts which led the Parliament to pass the acts complained of, since the year 1763, and the real state of the Colonies.
With great power comes great responsibility. That of moral, political and economic power has divided America into three different selections. That power must be managed and not push upon other countries and their views… we must be strong in our political moves, military gains, and economic growth. Which in turn scared our “ally” friends into believing we will take over there the way of life and turn it into an American way of
He uses his feelings of anger and patriotism to portray how Germany would not take control over Britain. He mentions how mightier places such as “Europe and many old and famous States have fallen” to the Nazis, but he also believes that Britain “shall not flag or fail,” (Churchill). He shows his dominance in order to make the citizens feel safe and empowered. This outpouring emotion from the prime minister towards the audience, keeps them enticed during his speech. Churchill closes his speech by emphasizing that the British can go anywhere in the world to fight in a war, and win.
In the Declaration of Independence, Jefferson says, "That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed...laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their Safety and Happiness." Jefferson suggested with that narrative that the new type of democratic system created by American colonies would be the opposite of the oppressive government of Britain. Thomas Paine makes similar claims in "Common Sense" saying,"The cause of America is in a great measure the cause of all mankind...we have in our power to begin the world
Together a group of colonist created the Declaration of Independence, pronouncing our separation from Britain sovereignty. Citing “when a long train of abuses and usurpations pursuing invariably the same object, evinces a design to reduce them under absolute despotism, it is their right, it is their duty, to throw off such government” (Jefferson). This line is appealing to the emotion of the colonist, showing it was their right and responsibility to stand up against oppression. The colonist, aware of the injustice they were subject to under control of Britain, decided to unite and throw off the government. Furthermore, this was not a rash decision, “we have appealed to their native justice and magnanimity… they too have been deaf to the voice of justice and consanguinity” (Jefferson).
The Movement Begins If America did not have Thomas Paine where would we be? It was a brutal fight against the British when Thomas Paine wrote his pamphlets “ Crisis No. 1”. They needed a push to get inspiration to start understanding more about the fight for their independence in which he gave that to the colonist. Thomas Paine use of pathos was the best persuasive technique to persuade the colonist.
I repeat it, sir, we must fight! An appeal to arms and to the God of Hosts is all that is left us!” What patrick wanted to describe in his speech was repetition. Patrick henry wanted the delegates to fight against the rule of Britain with enough emotion and constantly repeating the words he was trying to persuade them, but one of his major points to convince the colonist with the tone and speech of repetition. Patrick henry used repetition and pathos to emphasize a point with emotional expression, convincing the delegates wasn't easy. With further elaboration patrick henry made a point, he tried to made his point as vivid as possible and with a great tone He accomplished his opinion.
By both Henry’s use of language and his merciless insistence that the Archbishop only tell the truth, he places the burden of determining if the war is just onto the Archbishop, even though the decision to go to war is entirely the king’s responsibility within both a cultural and historical context. In fact, Henry wants to appear to the public as fully undecided, even though he has already made his decision, and only takes action by the Archbishop’s justifications, stating that “Now we are well resolved, and by God’s help/And yours, the noble sinews of our power” (1. 2. 222-223). With this, the king directly and openly places his conclusion on the hands of two people: God, and the Archbishop, which are inexplicably connected, depriving him of all responsibility for the ensuing chaos and loss of
To claim that every man will possess a moral code identical to one another is a quintessential demonstration of Utopian’s lack of understanding of reality. Carr emphasises the naivety to base the study of international politics on an imaginary view of how we like to see the world. One such naivety I understood from the text was the establishment of The League of Nations, a collective security instrument. A Utopian concept, Carr is critical of the League due somewhat to his belief that it was trying to generalise world politics between “sixty known states differing widely in size, in power, and in political, economic, and cultural development” (Carr, 1939 p. 30). Another criticism of Carr’s toward the League was the notion that more powerful states would use the League as means to ensure their own interests were
It is through rebellion that change is made. According to Oscar Wilde, “Disobedience, in the eyes of anyone who has read history, is man’s original virtue. It is through disobedience that progress has been made, through disobedience and through rebellion.” Reviewing America’s journey from the up and coming country to the established yet still changing nation we are today, Wilde definitely makes a strong claim that these changes are driven with disobedience. Without civil disobedience, many social progressions such as women’s suffrage, the Civil Rights Movement, and the LGBT movements would not have brought success. In fact, without this sense of rebellion, women would not be voting, Martin Luther King Jr. would not have had his dream, and queer Americans would not have the right to marry.
Britain and American colonies were defeated even though Britain had already won all the land (Document 1). In document 3 Gorge Washington is asking Robert Orme to become a higher rank in the military. George Washington wanted more power than he had. He also wants to serve under a “Gentlemen of General Braddock’s abilities and experiences”. Although he was very straight forward about what he wanted
