One his theories, stated in his book called Leviathan said that people are not able rule themselves because of how selfish mankind is and they need to be ruled by an iron fist. His political theory was that was also stated in Leviathan was that we should respect government authority under all circumstances to avoid violence. Hobbes was scared of the outcome of the social contract which meant people could get rid of the government if they were unhappy with what they were getting. In order to make well with the social contract he states in Leviathan that people should be completely obedient to the government. His reasoning was that if there was no government, there would be chaos.
A true patriot are the ones who oppose, the ones who don’t just go along, those who follows truth and righteousness and try to pass it along to the society. This can apply in today society from the protest against Donald Trump to impeach him from office. The people feel as President Trump isn’t doing an efficient job with the
A key part would be how Larson intensively wrote about the dirty antics of the politicians. For example, Alexander Hamilton trying to prevent Adams from becoming Vice President. He willingly put words into Adams’ mouth to make him seem unfit for the position. This has ultimately changed my perspective on Alexander Hamilton. I thought of him as a very key figure in history because of the Revolutionary War not because of his sabotage of political affairs.
I admire Churchill’s courage to fight for Britain by going to war, but I feel like he could 've done something else. It creates financial problems for all the parties involved, creates sadness, resentment, and most devastatingly: people die. If you go to war, not only are you losing money, that could be used for schools, shelter, hospitals, and food, you are exposing the lives of innocent people. War has never solved anything.
At the beginning of the war most Americans didn’t want to be in it, but as it went on and more and more events happened the more people in America wanted it all to end. They started making posters for the army symbolizing that the Germans are ruthless and will be heading towards America. People took protests to America 's neutrality when the Lusitania blew up, and when Zimmerman’s telegram was released. President Wilson didn’t want to join the war either because he saw it as not our problem. But even he was intrigued to join the war.
In the article “Fear the Other”, the author points out that,”... people identify with the group of which they are a part of, and are suspicious or fearful of those who belong to other groups.” This states that a lot of people are afraid of change, they don’t like it and they don’t want it. Also, in “Harrison Bergeron”, the story declares that,”’ If you see this boy,’ said the ballerina,’ do not- i repeat, do not- try to reason with him.’” This shows othering because the government is scared of
Johnson for burning the flag leads to many causes. For him to do that, that’s means he doesn’t honor our nations freedom as well as the unity of our governments. If Johnson wasn’t careful with what he did he wouldn’t have been in this big of a situation. He caused a lot of people to dislike him in many ways. The physical abuse of the flag carried out in a way likely to be offensive which lead him to be in a big
The news should keep the government true and honest. The actions of President Trump’s press staff so far have been questionable. Spicer’s ‘alternative facts’ were questioned by Todd, making Conway have to come to his defensive. Todd has made an effort to make President Trump’s administration to stop using lies to get people onto his side. Though, Conway’s methods of trying to get Todd off of what Spicer said only brought light into the problems with lying within the administration.
Finally, he also uses logos to show logical appeal towards the audience. Patrick henry says "shall we try arguments" talking about and thinking about everything they have done in the past that hasnt worked. Henry say the British will betray the colonists, telling the audience you can't trust the British that why we shall fight. Give me liberty or give me death is a way of him saying and showing he will get peace one way or another, but if the people dont agree with him then there is no hope for freedom so give him
In the story “Harrison Bergeron” the handicaps make people identical, but, their real plans are to bring fear and weaken them so they don 't rebel against the government. Equality could be dangerous to society because the handicaps are a way that the government controls people without them knowing also scare them with some serious consequences if they don 't follow their orders. Without diversity, the government could destroy the world, and weaken the people. Being all the same Diversity can destroy the world, and weaken
He talked on his behalf about his personal worth (putting a lantern on your problems) and then “spinning” it with saying all politicians should give a list of their assets. Chapter 12: “The Press Is the Enemy” Be careful who you talk to because you never know who is going to hear. Keeping a clean mouth and not exposing or saying anything you wouldn’t want other people to know is a bad mistake. Especially if you talk to the media because the media was slur your words and make up an entire different story than you told them. It is important to be professional and clear when speaking to the media.
Trump states, “I want surveillance of these people, I want surveillance if we have to and I don 't care” (“Trump: Islam Hates Us”). When Trump uses the statement “I don 't care”, it shows how thoughtless he is towards the moral beliefs of Muslims. Demagoguery calls for Trump’s solutions to be the only right ones, because he thinks of himself as the only capable of making America great again. Trumps uses simplification in order resolve radical terrorism by temporarily banning muslims and keeping surveillance
He wanted the people to stay under control, because he knew that the state of the nation was fragile. He understood that unruly armed farmers threatening the new government could result in anarchy or a military dictatorship. George Washington did not want everything he fought for to turn into that. Even when a similar situation of agitated soldiers, better trained than Shay’s group of farmers, wanting to engage in a military coup arose and Washington could have gained dictatorial powers, Washington shut it down. Washington also warned that this rebellion was an embarrassment to the new nation and seemed to support the nation’s enemies across the sea’s theory that the people are unfit to govern themselves.
Amekeco Brooks Jr. The 2016 election was driven by the fear, nostalgia, and bias of the American people, but was it rigged? The President-elect, Donald Trump, felt the election was rigged against him. That idea is nothing more than a baseless theory of Mr. Trump. To rig an election would be no easy task and mistakes are rarely made.
