Michael Moore is an American documentary filmmaker, activist and author. In his works he often criticizes social and political issues. In his “Idiot Nation” Michael Moore is extremely concerned about the American Education system. He argues that American nation is becoming the nation of uneducated idiots with “help” of large corporations and Schools Administrations.
Politicians are searched out to be millionaires to buy their own ads. For example, "As a college student, I wrote my senior thesis on the impact of television on the balance of power among the three branches of government ... the growing importance of visual rhetoric and body language over logic and reason.” (Gore 5) This quote is necessary because it give the readers a little background of the full extent of his research and experience on the topic, leading to make his claim sound. He was glad he had that research in a younger age because it helped him realize what 's going on around him the younger age as well as when we got
This status adds points to his credibility. In his works Moore mentioned many pressing problems like media’s work, situation in the housing sector or medical insurance. He acts like he tries to demonstrate the real situation in the mentioned sphere. It is obvious that Moore’s documentaries often create depressive impression. People can say he does it deliberately by choosing only negative examples, like the situation with Kaiser Permanente that did not help Dawnelle Keyes’s small daughter in time because she was not delivered to the right hospital at first (Sicko 01:10).
At the the time of the moon exploration, the cold war was a big issue in the United States and not many civilians were concerned about it. To sum up, the documents used for the mission of the moon were in fact effective. They all did an excellent job appealing to ethos, logos, and pathos. In addition, they all had a subject, occasion, audience, purpose, and its speaker. They demonstrated persuasiveness which would win over the audience because it had come from a reliable source like president richard nixon and news article london times.
Moore illustrates the many ways American citizens can obtain guns and the many controversies that surround gun possession. Moore represents the ‘white Americans’ in favour of gun ownership as extremely fearful to the black population and discusses how the media plays a role in fuelling this fear. Moore illustrates this by use of a small cartoon clip, segments from various news shows as well as comparing the Americans to their north neighbours, the Canadian population. Moore starts his segment on fear by using a small animation clip, concerning the history of the United States of America. This clip particularly focuses on the way fear made the Americans behave a certain way.
His opportunities were earned through motivation and everything around him was a part of his success. He was never alone and his journey through life taught him to not only be a leader for himself but to others, too.

Andrew Romano’s article “How dumb are we?” contradicts the idea that citizens at least know the basics about their country’s political system and state affairs. He describes how surveys reveal that many Americans lack a common understanding and knowledge of their domestic politics as well as foreign politics. Some of his main arguments explain why the Americans are less aware of their country’s politics than the Europeans are, e.g. the complexity of the American political system, the decentralized educational system and most importantly that Americans are ignorant, not stupid. Romano also empathizes that the Americans’ lack of knowledge poses a threat to the American society.
Thereby attaining the mass interpretation as to the effects, if any, that Alan Moore’s graphic novel have had on his readership in influencing whatever social or cultural reform that took place after his work’s had been published. However, at the same time, the paper will lack any form of quantitative crowd analysis or contemporary public opinion on this
He addresses the arguments against his position then refutes them more or less. His argument about sending too many students to college proves to be somewhat effective while also being ineffective. Nemko plays on the emotions of the reader and provides alternatives improving the effectiveness of the article only to fail to provide compelling refutes while damaging his credibility through his use of logos. (Nemko 32-35). So as millions of students and parents ask whether or not college is worth the money, they can turn to Marty Nemko’s article as a source of alternate answers while keeping in mind he does have some downfalls in
Michael Moore once said, “Capitalism is an organized system to guarantee that greed becomes the primary force of our economic system and allows the few at the top to get very wealthy and has the rest of us riding around thinking we can be that way too - if we just work hard enough.” Had Horatio Alger met Michael Moore, he would have agreed with his sentiments about greed being a dangerous force in a capitalist society. He also would have supported the fact that Americans are hard working, but Alger, in his book Ragged Dick, paints a more optimistic view of the “respectable core” of hard working magnanimous people who made his 1860’s society work. In Alger’s depiction, holding on to respectability and disavowing greed, in addition to hard
