When delivering speeches and addresses, it is essential to carefully pick words and phrases to spread a clear message about how America needed important changes. In his speech, Clinton uses the phrase “eroded our resources,” and by using this phrase, Clinton urges that America needs a change, and it is worrisome if the nation is not taking steps toward that change. Not only does Clinton uses powerful phrases, he also demonstrates his high-level vocabulary to show that he put his thoughts and consideration in his writing and reveals to the citizens that people need to come together and behind him to avoid harmful consequences and to make changes to make America a better place. With this being said, Clinton uses strong diction and establishes his ethos, or perceived persona as a writer. He uses words such as “fractured” and “mustered,” showing his audience that he is intelligent and worth standing behind.
Inequality issue is one of popular debates at last decades. When we look at the statistical data about share of income per years, we can say that inequality has started to increase between 1980-1990. For example; in 1980 top %1 share of income was %8 in USA, %6 in Ireland, %4 in Sweden, %6 in Italy, but in 2008 these rates increased to %18 in USA, %10 in Ireland, %7 in Sweden, %10 in Italy. Jump in inequality is obvious according to our data. Always there are fluctuations in our graphs, but all fluctuations have own reasons such as world wars, depreciations and crises.
John Lennon was a prominent singer/songwriter that founded the Beatles and impacted music like no other band before. This impact on music roused society in many ways during the 1960s. After WWII, there was an inflation in consumerism as people began to settle economically in the 1960s. As a result, the need for entertainment increased since people were able to afford entertainment without rationing or supporting the war. Moreover, as a result of the 1950’s, a period of social conservatism and conformity, the “Baby Boom” (1945-1964) produced 76 million babies that John Lennon and the Beatles would impact and, therefore, move emotionally.
This is giving people a misinterpretation of what life should be about and that's happiness, good doing, and virtuous instead he gives the image of greed, gluttony, and pride. What we must do is to stop letting people influence what we think is right and wrong and what we think we need in life versus what we actually need in life. What I've learned in class applies to this topic because it highlights the wrong doings of some celebrities like Kanye West and how he actually influences the minds of other in the world and how his wrong doing and self interest in himself can actually affect the mind of others and the lives they will want to live. To solve this, I think we need to apply the ethical position of the principle of universalizability which is "An act is morally acceptable if, and only if, its maxim is universalizability" (Garcia,16). What this means is that we need a society in which what we do can be accepted by everyone that way nobody can see anything as a way of

Between 1870 and 1900, an estimated 25 million immigrants had made their way to the United States. This era, titled the Gilded Age, played an extremely important role in the shaping of American society. The United States saw great economic growth and social changes; however, as the name suggested, the Gilded Ages hid a profound number of problems. During this period of urbanization, the publicizing of wealth and prosperity hid the high rates of poverty, crime, and corruption. European immigrants who had come to the United States in search of jobs and new opportunities had fallen into poverty as well as poor working and living conditions.

Yes, the American Dream was that every US citizen should have an equal opportunity to achieve success and prosperity through hard work, determination, and initiative. However, going about it the under the wrong circumstances and reasons, the desire to live this dream is bound to destroy you in the long run.

Kennedy has many emotional appeals to the audience as well. This emotional appeal, where a speaker can try and make the audience feel emotional towards the topic they are trying to convey is called pathos. John F. Kennedy said, “To those people in huts and villages of half the globe struggling to break the bond of mass misery, we pledge our best efforts to help them help themselves, for whatever period is required” (Eidenmuller). Kennedy tried to make the audience actually feel an emotional attachment to the penniless people in the United States. His reasoning for doing so was he hoped his words would touch the hearts of his audience and persuade them to work together and strive to save the unfortunate people in poverty.

It is clear that there is a universal goal to better America, reduce poverty, and maximize social equality.
In January 1934 Huey would create a Share Our Wealth Society which would promote the redistribution of wealth among American citizens. This new idea would pick up high popularity among citizens but would catch disagreement from Roosevelt once again.

Prior to Huey’s Share the Wealth Program, Roosevelt declared a national bank holiday in response to continuing runs on banks on March 6, 1933. Congress would grant Roosevelt sweeping powers to regulate banking.
