With the constant threat of nuclear war overshadowing everyday life, the construction of the Berlin Wall in 1961 not only divided Germany, but manifested as a physical division between “the free world” and “the Communist world”, as termed by President John F. Kennedy. Two years later, he delivered his famous “Ich bin ein Berliner” speech at the Brandenburg Gate. Through heavy emotional appeal and an encouraging tone, Kennedy not only offers American solidarity to West Berlin, but instills confidence in the crusade for democracy across the globe. Speaking to an audience of Germans, the American president’s first priority is building sympathy with his foreign audience. This is best seen through his diction as he begins by directly addressing
Hitler was a very smart man with his use of words and encouragement for Germany. He killed himself because they were not going to win the war because the U.S and their allies defeated them. The United states allies helped in the U.S winning the war. The allies that helped us win the war was British, Soviet Union, France and many other countries like Australia. The British gave the United States a lease for 99 years to territories in the Newfoundland’s, and the Caribbean.
Hitler made wide sweeps of propaganda to keep himself in perfect light and his enemies oppressed. Hitler’s main way of spreading propaganda early on was through his public speeches. He held a powerful and charismatic voice that convinced many Germans that he could solve the country’s problems after World War I.
Language is the most powerful tool of communication in this world, with language we are able to create change. For instance Martin Luther King Jr is a man who created peace against racial oppression with he delivered his speech because of it he received a Nobel Prize. In his “I have a dream” speech, his words were inspirational when he spoke about equality. He said, “ Now is the time to make real promises of democracy. Now is the time to rise from the dark and desolate valley of segregation to the sunlit path of racial justice.” (pg 302) This speech was given in 1963 yet today people of color are still being oppressed.
Rhetorical Analysis In April 30, 1789, President George Washington gave his inaugural address in Wall Street, New York. Beginning with the words, "...summoned by my country whose voice I can never hear but with veneration and love..." Washington uses personification as he describes the American people that called out for him for his help and his being in office as the whole country with nothing but positivity. The country had just voted for him, not to mention the 69 presidential electors. As he channels the people 's emotions through his address, Washington continues with the words, "..a retreat a retreat which I had chosen with the fondest predilection, and, in my flattering hopes, with an immutable decision, as the asylum of my declining years--a retreat which was rendered every day more necessary as well as more dear to me by the addition of habit to inclination..", Washington then proves repetition is in order, as he uses the word "retreat" more than once and supports it with backup for a deeper understanding to signify how he heard the American
How did the Great Depression aid Hitler to rise to power in Germany? Introduction My EPQ question is focused on how the Great Depression aided Hitler to become a powerful dictator within Germany; causing the Second World War. Although the Great Depression is a key factor, while researching, it has been suggested that there are other factors such as the “Treaty of Versailles”3, “propaganda”3, the fact that he was a “gifted speaker”3, “Reichstag building was set on fire”8, and the Munich Putsch leading to his “trial for treason”4. The Great Depression was a catastrophic event beginning in 1929; America, and its effects lasting long into the 1930’s, in countries all over the world. The “biggest stock market since records began”9, was caused
Actually, Daniel is 6ft 2in tall so he was very close to Lincoln’s actual height. Tony Kushner, the film’s script writer stated that the movie’s most important scene was Lincoln’s speech in his cabinet about the importance of the 13th amendment. He described it as “jaw-dropping”. One of my favorite quotes in this movie that Lincoln declared was “ We here highly resolve that dead shall not have died in vain— that this nation, under god, shall have a new birth of freedom— and that the government of the people, by the people, for the people, shall not perish from the earth.” This refers to the importance of citizenship and

“Masters of War” was one of the most significant protest song of all the time. The Freewheelin’ Bob Dylan in 1963 was the album in which this song was released in with his other songs. Dylan was a very smart and knowledgeable man. He was only twenty when he wrote the song. “ The Cold War was in full effect and the Cuban Missile Crisis brought the United States and the USSR to the verge of nuclear disaster.” The song is directed towards politicians who are enjoying putting the lives of citizens in danger and people are getting benefits from the war.
He was the leader of the Nazis and led the Germans into WW11 (1939-1945).During his “reign” Hitler definitely showed the Machiavellian principles of being a loved, feared and trustworthy leader who wasn’t afraid to act drastically and quickly. The Machiavellian philosophy of “it is best to be loved AND feared; if you can’t be both, then be feared.” applies to Adolf Hitler because he was both feared and loved. After WW1, Germany was in bad shape and when Hitler came and assured the people recovery, they could not refuse. In return Hitler brought down the unemployment in Germany from 7 million to only 1 million in 12 months. But Hitler knew how to maintain his leadership; he was feared by his enemies.
