19). Here we see Kings argument fall under the strategies logos and ethos. This time he appeals to personal experience under logos.

David Brooks writer of “One Nation Slightly Divisible,” tries to control the audience’s minds by using “we” in his article. Similarly, Jonathan Rauch, writer of “In Defense of Prejudice: Why Incendiary Speech Must Be Protected” argues in a biased point of view in an unique way to attract audience to believe his personal view towards prejudice. Even though both Brooks and Rauch share the same bias perspective, Brooks reveals a more pervasive biased opinion compared to Rauch. David Brooks stands out with a positive effect of bias and to convince the readers and help unfold his viewpoint and grasp the audience 's attention.

“It doesn 't deter crime, but merely cheapens human life and gives rise to more murders.” This is one of the many quotes that reflects Truman Capote’s view on capital punishment. In writing his novel, In Cold Blood, Capote’s primary purpose is to convey his opposition towards the death penalty. Through the stylistic elements of rhetorical appeals, diction, and a selection of detail, Capote reveals the attitude he holds against this unreasonable form of justice. Tying into the events of the trial, Capote uses the rhetorical appeal pathos to highlight his point by appealing to the emotions and sensitivities of his audience.
The works of Dittmann and Golding imply that people will be more violent in a survival situations that are difficult to exit because they provide the person with an ideology to justify their actions so that they will not be held accountable. In the article “What makes good people do bad things?” the author states that situations can foster evil by “Providing people with an ideology to justify beliefs for actions”(Dittmann) and by making “exiting the situation difficult”(Dittmann). Golding examines these points in his novel through his character Jack, one of the older boys who fills a
Atticus is a prime example of this, bringing empathy to a deeper level. For instance, Atticus musters up the moral courage to defend the innocent Tom Robinson in the case against Mayella Ewell, an action that goes against much of Maycomb’s beliefs. However, the fuel to this motivation initially comes from placing himself in Tom’s shoes in order to see the unjust actions towards him, thus taking the initiative to do something about this prejudice. Atticus goes to the jail cell and possibly endangers himself to prevent the endangerment of Tom. Although he knows he may be risking his life by guarding the front of the jail, he shows moral courage for facing his fears and standing up for what he believes is ethical.
The fact that Dr. Shah is explaining the reasons behind the C-sections helps the reader acknowledge that the author wants the reader to understand him better. After the reader has read the article, it is clear to see that it is a persuasive argument. They may notice this since the author uses persuasive techniques, such as evidence and reasoning, to convince readers that hospital birth is dangerous compared to other options. Those two techniques are not the only ones seen within the article, they are only the tip of the iceberg.
Based on these actions, King Henry’s rule compares to King Richard’s in several ways. Politically, King Henry was more talented, understanding the people and the nature of politics better. However, a comparison of their morals, creates an equation that is equal. Both King Henry and King Richard display the same hypocrisy of banishing someone who was loyal to them, and further, banishing for a crime that the kings asked them to do. King Henry does appear to be more aware of his crimes, as he pardons Aumerle.
“Although Dubus trains his disgust on the failures of the court, the practical shortcomings of using force as a response to injustice paradoxically emerge at the conclusion of an essay that ostensibly argues for the necessity of doing just that”
In this Article Jacoby has a clear argument about bringing back flogging. Jacoby believes that flogging should be brought back to replace the standard conventional methods of violent and non-violent offenders. He reminds us that the Puritan forefathers of Boston had no tolerance for wrongs doings. However, we currently practice more humane ways of discipline by imprisoning criminals. Likewise, the courts use imprisonment for nearly every criminal offense.

After reading the excerpt from Frederick Douglass, I learned the unethical, criminal nature of slavery and enslavers. I now understand the reason why Douglass wished to be an animal. In the narrative of the Life of Frederick Douglass…, he recalled one of Sheridan’s speeches. He remembered reading text about immorality of slavery.
Throughout the “Narrative of Fredrick Douglass”, Douglass develops an image between true and false Christianity. Douglass elaborates his point in the opening appendix, calling the former “the Christianity of Christ” and the latter “the Christianity of this land.” Douglass describes the ordeal that slaveholders’ Christianity is not a given evidence of natural goodness, but an artificial state of self-righteous brutality. To tackle this distinction, Douglass states a basic contradiction between the charitable, peaceful beliefs of Christianity and the violence from the immoral actions of slaveholders. The character that is described as a good example for this theme is Thomas Auld.
