Eleanor Roosevelt spoke at the 1936 District of Columbia Library Association Dinner on April 1st, and she gave her speech, “What Libraries Mean to the Nation”. Roosevelt’s speech emphasized the need of public access to books and libraries across the nation. She used her position as the President’s wife, and her passion for education and books to appeal to the primary audience at the Library Association dinner. However, she addresses her secondary audience, rural and urban America, multiple times throughout the text. Roosevelt relied heavily on pathos, which was influenced by her use of syntax and diction, to persuade the audience that books and libraries are needed for the success of the nation.
Booker T Washington in his literary work up from slavery has a central theme of freedom throughout. The story has a tale of Washington and his quest throughout his life, and his aim to be successful. The tone he uses to weave his tale would be an optimistic point of view and lighthearted tone. As he firmly believes that blacks and whites can live together in harmony. The way Washington believes the way to accomplish this is through education at his institute then using the education to progress in life.
Leading member of the American Civil Liberties Union, Clarence Darrow, in his 1924 case appeal, A Plea for Mercy, defends his clients, Richard Loeb and Nathan Leopald Jr., of murder. Darrow’s purpose was to persuade the audience, the judge and jury, into shortening the boy’s sentence because the terrible acts of war has tainted the nation. He exhibits an aggressive tone by using fear, allusions, and metaphors to bring justification to the boys by appealing to his audience. Darrow implements fear throughout the duration of his speech to persuade his audience to believe the state of our nation has paved way for two, very well off, boys to turn into murderers.
In a time where every word counts, Donald Trump delivers a speech that eases the fears of many. While Trump’s speech appears informal and elementary, he displays expertise in the art of rhetoric. He employs the use of pathos, ethos, impeccable diction and mindful arrangement to grab the attention of the audience. As is evident from the public disturbances, Donald Trump is not favored by many Americans.
On September 11th, 2001, a group of terrorists led airplane attacks on the World Trade Center and the Pentagon (Merskin 375). The American government would eventually blame the attacks on terrorists of “Arab/Middle Eastern descent,” an American enemy that, according to Debra Merskin, had been well in place since the Gulf War of 1991 (Merskin 375). Given this, when Bush delivers his speech on the morning of the attacks, it is important to keep in mind that an enemy is already firmly in place (though the President does not explicitly identify the enemy). Further, it is crucial that we note George Bush’s credibility prior to the attacks. Bligh, Kohles and Meindl remark that, “Despite earlier doubt in the President’s tenure regarding voting scandals,

Social Injustice is a situation when some unfair practices are being carried in society. Everyday someone is beat, raped, or crying for help in Afghanistan. This is what life has become in Afghanistan after the government has been overtaken. Social injustice is a major problem in Afghanistan. According to Farooq, “Social Injustice is a situation when some unfair practices are being carried in society.”
This dreadful little video could have been much better had its creator had control over his emotions, better manners, and a more serious grasp of academic debate. Those who want an example of serious academic debate can find it on the web by Goggling the Russell-Coppleston debate (link: http://www.biblicalcatholic.com/apologetics/p20.htm). That debate was between two noted scholars and was carried on the BBC. God’s existence was the topic. Though it occurred during the 1950s, it is still more valuable than this video.
My whole life, I had been a passenger. A spectator. An observer. I was a quiet, introverted child and I kept small, watertight social circles, as if I was a deadly secret that couldn’t be allowed to reach the public eye. My only pastimes were solitary; reading and telling myself imaginary stories.
drawing symbol is a consonant-vowel combination. Linear B dates from the Mycenaean civilization. In the late 9th and early 8th century BC, the language found was based on the Phoenician syllabary, written from left to right and back again. This form of inscription is the closest to the modern language of today Athens was conquered in the fourth century B.C. by King Philip of Macedonia.
The beginning to me was to gain credibility by going back into the past using a personal experience of the day that he was liberated. He used this to show the audience that he is a credible source to talk about this subject. “Fifty-four years ago to the day, a young Jewish boy from a small town in the Carpathian Mountains woke up, not far from Goethe's beloved Weimar, in a place of eternal infamy called Buchenwald. He was finally free, but there was no joy in his heart. He thought there never would be again.
Theodore Roosevelt uses logos throughout his speech. He uses it to show that he knows what he is doing and using his intelligence to convey that he is the right person to lead the United States. When he says, “Upon the success of our experiment much depends, not only as regards our own welfare, but as regards the welfare of mankind,” it makes us think and feel that he knows what he is talking about, reassuring why he will be a good president. His logos is also shown when he talks about the Republic of the days with Washington and Abraham Lincoln. Bringing this into the speech shows that he knows his history on the US and knows that they did great things for the country, showing that he will also do great things.
