Next they bought Alaska from Russia because they wanted to stop the expansion of trade and Alaska’s land was also rich in natural resources. America also took over Japan and China.
Therefore, when members of their mission are mocked and killed, it is viewed as a deliberate attack on their faith. Moreover, Father Paul Ragueneau described the Iroquois as “enemies of the Faith” as a result of this attack. Because of these views, the French saw this attack as “[venting] their rage on the two Fathers…”. They did not understand the intricacies of the Mourning Wars at this time because they were completely different from the wars that they were used to. The French fought wars for economic power and territory while the Iroquois did not prioritize this.

Okonkwo comes back to find he has lost his spot in the higher-ups of the clan “He had lost the chance to lead his war clan against the new religion, which, he was told, had gained ground.” (171)Achebe uses logos in this in order to give us an understanding of what happens on the punishment side of life. In this portion of the novel, Okonkwo is back in Umuofia, and he finds the tribe has been taken over by the missionaries. “The white missionary was very proud of him and he was one of the first men in Umuofia to receive the sacrament of Holy Communion, or Holy Feast as it was called in Igbo.” (174) Ethos occurs in this section because of who is meant to read this. Achebe wants to get his point across to Europeans and the western world; however, they would not read this if the white men were portrayed as evil and inaccurate. By using celebrations and sacraments that actually occur Achebe gains credibility of his work.
Inigo repeatedly repeats to himself, “Hello, my name is Inigo Montoya and you killed my father. Prepare to die.” The phrase summarizes Inigo’s thirst for vengeance with Count Rugen. As a child, Inigo respected his father as a person who had created the most wonderful sword for the six-fingered Count Rugen. Out of nowhere, the Count came with the sword to Domingo complaining about the swords condition and refused to pay the entire amount.

In “A Plea for Religious Liberty”, he explains how the Puritan’s uniformity would end in destruction (F). Nathanial Ward explains exactly how many Puritans thought in “The Simple Cobbler of Aggawam” (G). However, they did not have the best relationship with the neighboring Indians. William Bradford wrote a detailed account of the colonist’s attack on the Pequot’s Mystic River village, probably wanting to remember the sweet victory they had upon the Indians (D). A spiritual revival also occurred within the colony, focused mainly among the third- and fourth-generation Puritans.
It is mainly about his relationship with his father and how after his father passed away he realized how his anger and rage, which was depicted as a disease, was legitimate. His father was a paranoid, bitter old man who had a very profound hatred of white people. He used to warn his son that they were “not to be trusted.” Baldwin never understood his father’s hatred for white people; he did not understand that because his father was of the first generation of African Americans to be free that he faced a lot of racism growing up. They never understood why this bitter old man hated the white race so much; all they knew was that his hatred consumed him so much that in the end it was what killed him. Only after his move to New Jersey did Baldwin begin to understand why his father’s hatred towards the whites was so great.
If slavery was abolished, they’d have to find other ways to farm their plantations and would undoubtedly make less money. With American manufactures rising, the government decided to impose a tariff or tax on all imported and exported goods. The excess tax would decrease the import of foreign goods and increase business for the American manufactures in the North. This forced the South to either pay more for their goods, get the goods from the North or manufacture their goods themselves. Slavery was holding the Southern economy together.
