In his essay, Emmett Rensin utilizes real-world examples in order to trigger emotion in his audience and solidify his argument as the truth. While this essay does not often utilize the rhetorical appeal of ethos, an amount of credibility can be distinguished from Rensin 's position as a liberal writer. In his argument, he highlights three major faults found commonly amongst liberal masses: the knowing, the judgement, and the hate. While all three faults are internally linked, each has its own significant blemish on the liberal image. While he does not directly state his audience, one can assume that Rensin wrote not only to call the offending liberals out for their errors, but also to inform a younger audience in order to evoke change within the liberal community.
To many people, all of these men are heroes and have helped our beloved country become what it is today; Benedict Arnold should be right up there with them. Benedict Arnold was born on January 14, 1741 as the sixth Benedict Arnold (Sheinkin 4). He was a great man, a man of pride and honor, and a man who helped our country gain independence from England. Anyone who is capable of doing that should be labeled as a hero. Although some people may classify him as a traitor because of some choices he made in his later life, Arnold is still a hero because of his bravery and intelligence, and his determination and leadership.
Reading Anthem and “The Soul of a Collectivist” can lead the reader to think that as a general public, many take individuality for granted. Even though in today’s culture many strongly support individuality, some still seem to not use their specific character to their potential. When Equality found the unmentionable word he mentions “I am. I think. I will.

His weakness in his argument comes from the failure to acknowledge how some of these instances have changed the world for the better, such as fighting for other countries to have freedom. Ponnuru covers many of the same points that Bacevich does, such as invasion of other countries and the economic status of American people, but instead sees them as a way to make America greater. He starts by explaining his point of view and the opposing political opinions and proceeds to make his argument by discussing the founding of America and how it came to be such a strong nation, then uses examples supporting the claim that Barack Obama is not in favor of American exceptionalism. He does an excellent job of giving details and examples including the 2003 Gallup survey and quotes from President Obama. Overall Ponnuru supports his opinion by using facts; however the article has a strong conservative bias, and should be interpreted as such.
Although the book describes all of these sections fairly well, Streusland admits in his introduction that he does not cover social, cultural, and intellectual history as well as he could but focuses much more on political, economic, and military history. He compares the administration of these empires excellently when he first states that the Ottomans’ success was rooted on the stability provided by both the creation of detailed records of Ottoman lands by the central government and the established connections of sipahi cavalrymen to their districts (pp. 99-103). Later Streusland compares the Safavids to the Ottomans by explaining that the Safavids tried to create a replication of the Ottoman system in the form of khass provinces that took money from the Safavids’ tribal groups and placed them in the hands of imperial officials. The Safavids system did not work nearly as well as the Ottomans’ because it suffered from sloppiness and a lack of detailed revenue surveys similar to the Ottoman ones (pp.
Stephen Ambrose’s writings of our Founding Founder’s contributions to our country are fascinating. Not only did Ambrose discuss what made our past Presidents great, but he also discussed their shortcomings—professionally and personally. Most people have a preconceived idea of the contributions our Founding Fathers, which is mostly positive. What they do not realize is that like the men that came before them (Christopher Columbus), they were less than perfect. Moreover, one could draw the theory that some of our founding fathers were bigoted, racist's men.
Henry is a credible speaker because of this he gets some to agree with him on going to war with Britain, and some still disagree becasue some say they are not ready, they are weak. To begin with, Patrick henry uses pathos to appeal to the audience's emotions, and feelings of going to war with Britain. For example, he says "i consider it nothing less than a question of freedom and slavery." He connects with the emotions and thoughts of being a slave. The audience doesn't agree with his decision, even though he does appeal to the
In the case of Bergama movement, this was a contention against the global capitalism during a transformative time in Turkey’s history. Most studies suggest that the nation-state system is constained by the ongoing process of globalization. However this doesn’t mean that the nation-states are now powerless or inapt, even though there exist a tranformation of power. We could see in the case of the Bergama movement, the Turkish state replied the movement’s legal and international struggles by counter-framing and also adopting transnational

SSG Coryell is a phenomenal facilitator that is mission focused within the Commander 's intent and resulted in his earning the Basic Army Instructor Badge. His performance while assigned to the NCO Academy has been stellar and recently he was recognized by the Fires Center of Excellence Headquarters Battery as NCO of the month, chosen over 850 NCOs, selected for his efforts and contributions towards the development of our junior enlisted Soldiers, in accordance with the Human Dimension White Paper written by Lieutenant General Robert B. Brown. He truly possesses the potential to accept the responsibility of a Warrant Officer and is the future of the Army. Upon speaking with SSG Coryell and examining his valiant SUAS history, I unwaveringly determined that his proven combat experience, along with his will to accomplish any task, would not only allow him to succeed but would set the standard for any Warrant Officer and Soldier to follow, while simultaneously enhancing the Unmanned Aerial Systems operational
Halper continues to explain that these columnists would write about the domino theory and that one after another countries were going to fall under communism (94). However, a nay-sayer might argue that this is exactly the problem that Halper is trying to express. They could argue that he is referencing these “experts” that are committing this fallacy themselves. But never the less, showing that he has properly found other professional references and opinions on the matter helps justify Halper in his argument tremendously. It helps create a seemingly unbiased argument that many readers would find stable and
From the battles and fame to their leadership and loyalty both epic heroes gilgamesh and beowulf display the common characteristics of an epic hero. All throughout their journeys both heros come across situations that make them show who they really are and what they believe in. Although certain aspects of their leadership, journeys and personal beliefs are similar the way they display themselves in their personal and public lives make many of their characteristics differ from one another. The leadership styles and qualities of each character helps to define who they are as a person and what they believe in. Beowulf was a great leader who was loved and respected by his people.
I Agree… “The Federalist No. 84” and “The Anti-Federalist No.84”, both have their views on what should happen to our government. Whether it is to add a bill of rights or not, but I agree with the writer of “The Federalist No.84” because if the Constitution is adopted, then it will be our Bill of Rights, also based on other countries’ bill of rights then it may argue with a semblance of reason. Because I have read both sides of the discussion, I can see who is wrong and why. The Constitution may be a mess and need amendments, but it covers our basic rights and freedoms.
