Communists believed that if the world was under strict control and supervision they could ensure safety, no more war, and world peace. The United States and western world believed that people should have free-will and a less controlling government. Democracy was more prominent than communism in most of the western world, so the Soviet Union sought after the middle east to take control of. These countries in the middle east needed leadership and the soviets saw that as an opportunity for them to spread their ideologies. The Cold War effected the Middle East, Afghanistan, and African nations in many ways.
He even promoted about it to the citizens in his most influential inaugural address on 1961. The causes why John F. Kennedy was really concerned about unity were due to religions, racism and to improve relations with other country. The first reason for John F. Kennedy’s concern on unity as indicated in his speech was because of religions. In the world civilization, religions always meant for a special part in life that give the country and people the direction for the future. As the second Catholic President in the United States’ history, John F. Kennedy’s impression kept Americans from believing the power of Catholics such as Cardinal Francis Spellman and Joseph P. Kennedy.
He uses ethos in two different quotes. The first being, “It ought to be the axiomatic in this country that every man must devote a reasonable share of his time doing his duty in the political life of the community.” He also uses it when he says, “I think we ought to be broad minded to recognize the fact that a good citizen, striving with fearlessness, honesty and common sense to the best for the nation” (McKay). In both of these quotes Roosevelt is proposing what he thinks, but he is saying it in a way that it is almost a question. It forces the audience to ask themselves if that is how they think as well, and if it isn’t it causes them to think deeper about it. Which overall, was Roosevelt 's
He praises the nation, holding it to such a high standard and persuades people that it should continue to be elevated when he says, “Throughout America’s adventure in the free government, our basic purposes have been to keep the peace, foster the progress in human achievement, and to enhance liberty, dignity, and integrity among peoples and among nations. To strive for less would be unworthy of a free and religious people.” He also relates himself to the rest of the people when he says, “As a private citizen, I shall never cease to do what little I can to help the world advance…” Parallelism is used to accentuate his theme of balance, “But each proposal must be weighed in the light of a broader consideration: the need to maintain balance in and among national programs, balance between the private and the public economy, balance between the clearly necessary and the comfortably desirable, balance between our essential requirements as a nation and the duties imposed by the nation upon the individual, balance between actions of the moment and the national welfare of the
President Roosevelt uses repetition in his word choice to capture his audience. Some of the words that he had used were " freedom"(15), “we”(10), and "world "(15). He repeats these words several times to make the reader feel part of the bigger group. Freedom is commonly used because the goal of his speech was to persuade the country to go to war. By repeating these words, he is saying that America is a free country, and now it should become a free world.
However, he had the other face of strong opponent of nuclear weapons. And he had a passion to grasp real Soviet Union because he believed mutual understanding will solve problems between United States and Soviet. However, for Soviet people, the former image was so strong that mutual understanding was difficult. What is more, Reagan was incoherent person. It deepened suspicion not only in Soviet Union president but also among the U.S. community.
His whole purpose for writing the Federalist Papers was to get the people of New York to vote for the Constitution, so including the people in the new government was incredibly important to him and the citizens of the new country. He also explains “[the Constitution’s] analogy to [the people’s] own state constitution” and how it compares and benefits each state’s population (Hamilton 1). Hamilton makes the argument that the Constitution will benefit the people of New York because he wanted the people to vote for the Constitution to pass. Throughout the paper, the evidence is very clear, through his explanations of the Constitution to help the people better understand it and his personal reason for writing the papers. As a result of his opinions, the argument is very convincing because he explains in depth how the Constitution will benefit the people in many ways.
He gradually builds ethos through a logically constructed structure and address the concern of every patriots and everyone who loves freedom. In this speech, Kennedy successfully established the legacy of unifying people around the world to fight for liberty. His inaugural speech no doubt reflects Kennedy administration’s future foreign policies. The positive actions for liberty that Kennedy encourages citizens to do also foreshadows tensions in Cuba and Vietnam later on. Regardless the ideology behind it, this speech is still an eloquent
The 35th American President, John F. Kennedy, in his inaugural address, which he delivered after he just won the president seat, reclaimed his purpose as a successful and competent leader. JFK’s purpose was to not only demonstrate his amity towards the world, but also encourage his people to devote themselves to America. He used repetition and parallelism as his rhetorical strategies in order to convey to his audience, which includes both Americans and international people, the idea that America needs them to create a peaceful world in a nuclear age. After emphasizing the importance of freedom to America, JFK demonstrated his friendly attitude by using repetition to list his position toward some large or important organizations in the
When the bombs succeeded, Harry S. Truman was very pleased and began to change his demeanor. The bomb allowed Truman to become the aggressor. He no longer wanted to wait for confrontation, he wanted it, Truman switch from pro-Soviet advisors to anti-communist advisors. “President Truman indicates that the US will not recognize future communist governments, since ‘I'm sick of babying the Soviets.’” (academic.brooklyn.cuny.edu) Truman’s actions with the power he was beginning to hold provoked Stalin which drove the United States and NATO allies into the battle with the Soviet Union and their Warsaw Pact allies. As a result of the Cold War, the Soviet Union fell to the United States in 1991.
