Eugenics was the perfect means to maximize wellbeing and vigor of mankind, in order to promote the preservation of man’s acceptable biological characteristics. Compared to the other two articles, despite how painfully physically and mental eugenics may be, it is deemed necessary that we should opt for a more drastic measure such as sterilization to prevent humanity from becoming
Near the beginning of his renowned essay, "Civil Disobedience," Henry David Thoreau appeals to his fellow citizens when he says, "...I ask for, not at once no government, but at once a better government." This request serves as a starting point from which the rest of "Civil Disobedience" emerges. Thoreau 's essay is particularly compelling because of its incorporation of rhetorical strategies, including the use of logos, ethos, pathos, purposive discourse, rhetorical competence and identification. I will demonstrate how each of these rhetorical techniques benefit Thoreau 's persuasive argument. Thoreau uses logos throughout his essay to strengthen his argument with reasoning.
Bernie Sanders wants to better America as a whole while promoting equality and balance.

“The Declaration of Independence does not forbid us to do our part in the regeneration of the world. . .” (Beveridge 2). Of course what he states finds more justification on imperialism, something Anglo Americans would agree with in relation to the Battle of Little Bighorn, which just reinforces why it is more likely that Beveridge would support the interpretation before the 1950’s. Although the article is referring to imperialism and not westward expansion, it is easy to imply that Beveridge would have been supportive of the interpretation of the Battle of Little Bighorn prior to the 1950’s.
Former President, Barack Obama, in his speech, “Remarks on Immigration Reform”, the purpose is to convey how immigrants impact society in positive ways, encourage us to strengthen our country in different ways regarding immigration, and to strike against politicians against immigrants. His rhetoric is so prosperous because of his effective use in logos, pathos, and language. President Obama announced on January 29,2013 an abounding amount of executive actions to assist eleven million immigrants protection against deportation. With actions being taken during presidency a plan of action was taken in place. Prioritizing enforcement against illegal criminals, giving an opportunity for people who are here for an education, and equal rights for those who are illegal to come out of the shadows for work.
The past history for Americans convey the idea of despotism and tyranny by the government. Therefore, Sullivan utilize the idea of American’s past to justify the idea of expansion for the reason that Sullivan wants to persuade Americans that the expansion to the west would build a renovated and great nation. Moreover, Sullivan illustrates the idea of a new government that will bring equality and freedom that Americans did not have under the control of the Mother Land, Great Britain. Sullivan demonstrates this idea in his work when he writes “On the contrary, our nation birth was the beginning of a new history, the formation and progress of an untried political system, which separates us form the past and connects us with the future only; and
One of the major overhauls needed in the Department of Homeland Security is immigration enforcement. A 2011 report by Matt Mayer entitled, Homeland Security 4.0: Overcoming Centralization, Complacency, and Politics compiled research by Heritage Foundation analysts and came up with key points that need to be addressed in order to make the Department of Homeland Security run more effectively. The main point of recommendation is to “adopt a fair, honest, and realistic approach to immigration enforcement that recognizes state and local authorities as responsible partners and abjures an “amnesty first” strategy, which would simply encourage more illegal border crossings and unlawful presence. Sensible and functional border security, immigration, and workplace laws are vital to focusing scarce resources on the pressing security threat posed by transnational criminal cartels based in Mexico” (Matt Mayer,
Edelstein suggests many ways on how to increase the chances of making a military occupation a success. According to the author, the fundamental challenge of occupation is the potential of nationalistic minority groups driving up the cost of the occupation to an unacceptable level which would not only harm the efficiency but also make profits gained meaningless, therefore, to convince an occupied population not to resist the occupation and to grant the occupying power time is key. Such are only accomplished by overcoming the perception that the occupying power is a military conqueror, convincing the occupied population that the occupation will improve their lives, and assuring them that they will earn back their sovereignty one day. In other words, an occupying power must win the hearts and minds of the occupied population. Establishing law and order, supplying basic services and goods and refraining from the abuse of occupied populations are basic steps toward winning hearts and minds.
Being an American today means everyone is equal the same opportunities are available for every citizen of this great nation. Throughout history, people from around the world have looked to immigrate to America in search of a higher quality life and better opportunities. In the early 1600’s pilgrims found today's America as they were searching for religious freedom, from 1880 to 1920 many immigrants fled to this nation in search of greater economic opportunity (History.com). Currently, there are some varying opinions regarding immigrants in America, some citizens believe immigrants are harmful to the country. Others believe that immigrants are beneficial to America as immigration increases economic growth; with more people working tasks can
From my point of view, I powerfully advocate that members of minority groups had better maintain their distinct identity, rather than assimilate into common culture. I passionately believe that minority groups have compelling reasons to keep their identity. The United States, which is the roof of nearly 313 million people from the 2012 Census, is considered as a country of immigration and diversity. According to the U.S. Census Bureau in
Presidential candidate Bernie Sanders has a plan to help out immigrants with a reform on immigration. Sanders has so much experience and knowledge in politics that it will not be a problem in executing a reasonable reform. Sanders wants to do more than former president Barack Obama. Sanders plan is not to expand borders, but to secure them. Also to put the Dream act into law to help give young immigrants a chance at permanent residency and eventual citizenship.
Senator Charles Shumer, writing in an up front magazine, in 2016 says ¨we need to modernize and fix our immigration system, to ensure that the door to America remains as open to the future generations as it was for our ancestors.” What Sen. Shumer is saying here is that Once America had the doors open to people but now the government wants to close them. He is saying that the government should let immigrant have a path to citizenship so America can have the same reputation as in the past. America has always been a country of immigrants and what he is trying to say is that the immigration system must be fixed so we maintain the country this ways as it was for our ancestors. Now some might argue that this was the past but now we are in the future. How ever the weight of the evidence is on the other side.
This number of illegal immigrants is occurring in the United States. President Obama claims that the border is secure, but the facts prove that belief wrong. There is an illegal immigration problem in the U.S., and this problem starts at the security of the border. The United States of America needs to do more to secure its border. Three ways to secure the border would be to build a wall, call in more of the national guard, and deport the illegal immigrants with harsher punishments.
