In the so-called cold war era, along with the rise of the Soviet Union and the elevation of intensity between Communism and the Capitalism, the continuity of freedom is in the critical moment. John F. Kennedy wisely combines the technique of juxtaposition as well as specify to illustrate the seriousness of the situation as well as the actions America is going to take to his audiences— American people, Soviet Union’s leaders, and the rest of the world—in his inaugural speech on January 20, 1961. Juxtaposition is a technique that placing of two items side by side to create certain effect, reveal an attitude, or accomplishes some other purpose. By employing the technique of juxtaposition, J.F.K. clearly tells the entire nation that America will “pay any price, bear any burden, meet any hardship, support any friend, and oppose any foe to ensure the survival and the success of liberty.” This technique is pretty convincing because it underscores the writer’s thought that America will defend freedom from any potential hazard and effectively conveys to his audience that since the principal of America spirit is based on the freedom, so they may agree with J.F.K. that all people should keep the freedom whenever
Lyndon B Johnson's Great Society Speech Lyndon B. Johnson is mostly known for being the president of the United States, but that is not all he was. He became Vice President of the United States in 1960. After John F. Kennedy was assassinated in 1963, Johnson became President of the United States (Lyndon B).

However, when it comes to democracy his words take on a whole new level of importance. King’s words are important to a democracy because he expressed that the rights given to the people of America should be followed in all circumstances. The First Amendment states that citizens are given the freedom to speak, right of press, right to petition, and right to peaceably assemble without the interference of Congress. King call’s attention to the unfairness of the city of Memphis, Tennessee restricting the freedom to peaceably assemble in response to the sanitation workers strike. By calling attention to this issue and not letting it sit on the back burner to marinate; he is starting a change in how issues are handled or how they are supposed to be handled.

Kennedy, Lyndon B. Johnson was sworn in as the new President of the United States (History.com Staff, “Great Society”).
Liberty is held in the high esteem by nearly all Americans; the innate sense of freedom is simply human nature to yearn and fight for. As exemplified in both John F.
