Proctor talks good about the people who decided not to confess. He Doesn't want to say anything that will harm them. Proctor doesn't think he’s doing the right thing by confessing and wants to change his mind to do the right thing. John proctor is successful in helping his friends be
In the first paragraph, it says, “"Hear me for my cause. " I speak to-day, out of a solicitous and anxious heart for the restoration to the country...” This quote is a clear indicator that he wants the greater good for America. However, can we really consider what he says to be the greater good for America as a whole or just the whites and higher class citizens? Although I disagree with the way Webster views things, I took the time to look at things from his standpoint.
Where did Zell Miller had the speech at the Madison Square Garden. He was supporting George W. Bush in the 2004 Presidential electron.

By alluding to King—a civil rights leader and a strong believer in nonviolence—Chavez shows that nonviolence can be amazingly effective. King led a nonviolent campaign during the civil rights movement geared toward ending segregation and securing equal rights for African Americans. King successfully utilized
“Si, Se Puede” or “Yes, You Can” helped Cesar stand up for human rights by believing anything is possible. Nelson Mandela did all he could to stop segregation in South Africa. Cesar Chavez did all he could to help farm workers have better rights. Both Cesar and Nelson did all they could to help their community and never gave up. They impacted the world with their big efforts.
When Peter tells Valentine about his plan to have them take on false identities and slowly become respected political figures he says: “I’m going to have control of something. But I want it to be something worth ruling. I want to accomplish something worthwhile. [...] So that when somebody else comes, after we beat the buggers, when somebody else comes here to defeat us, they’ll find we’ve already spread over a thousand worlds, we’re at peace with ourselves and impossible to destroy.
He states this to show that America has tried to be reasonable, but it is not working with Britain. This quote was effective because it shows that Britain has been uncooperative while we have been trying compromise as we break away from British rule. Patrick Henry also utilizes Pathos when he says “In vain, after these things, may we indulge the fond hope of peace and reconciliation” (Henry). This was effective because he uses sarcasm to show that there is no chance at peace or reconciliation with Britain after this is over.
King uses pathos to tap into his audience’s mind to think about the importance of promoting action now rather than waiting for others to promote it first. He ends his letter by stating that he “hope that the dark clouds of racial prejudice will soon pass away and the radiant stars of love and brotherhood will shine over our great nation”. (King Jr., p. 658) Dr. King is a man of great integrity and love. He wanted to bring his fellow brother and sister together as a nation strong and not divided.
President Lincoln had to make the best decision for the country, even if he did not satisfy the interests of both groups. Presidents should not appeal to majorities nor minorities, but overall, make the best decision for the country as seen with George Washington, as well as Abraham Lincoln. Each knew what was best in the end and that is what made him a great leader. If the government continues to apply filters of consent, prevent majority factions, and let the president make their own verdicts for the country, we will all be better
Initially, King and Kennedy had similar views on freedom. For instance, both men believed that change and rights would come only if there is faith in God and in themselves. King stated in his “Letter from Birmingham Jail” that he wants “the radiant stars of love and brotherhood [to] shine” over all (teachingamericanhistory). In Kennedy’s inaugural address he said, “the belief that the rights of a man come not from
Douglass makes sure to remind his audience that their “fathers were wise men”, and so their decision to engage in violent resistance was just as well a wise decision (Douglass 111). Perhaps the most compelling argument Douglass makes throughout the entirety of the speech is that The United State’s fathers “were peace men; but they preferred revolution to peaceful submission to bondage. You may well cherish the memory of such men” (Douglass 113). Including this points out how America’s founding fathers are cherished for the change they brought about through the means of violent resistance. If they could be celebrated for such actions, how can the enslaved be so reprimanded for taking part in the same determined fight?
Zinn presents his information in a way that he looks at the good and bad the same, focuses a little bit more on the bad than good but is not inclined one way or the other too much if at all. Question 2: The overall view of Schweikart and Allen is patriotic, showing that even through the bad things The United States is a major power off the world and most if not all of its actions are great things. Such as FDR bringing the U.S. out of the Depression, helping win World War 1 and World War 2, and disarming countries of some of their nuclear weapons making the world safer. While the overall view of Zinn is The United States is not all that it’s cracked up to be so to speak, the U.S. has done some very bad things in its past and some of the good things did not turn out to be as good as expected. Such as the Korean War, the Vietnam War, and how it responded to Labor Unions and strikers.
Have you ever asked someone, "Who was the best US President? " I encourage you to try it, listen to the responses you get. You might get the responses: Washington, Roosevelt, or Jefferson, some might even say our current president, Obama. As for my personal opinion, I believe that Abramham Lincoln was our nations best President. Lincoln is remembered for his character and leadership, his speeches and letters, and most importantly his impact on the end of slavery here in the United States.
King also includes his audience in his letter, once stating “we will reach the goal of freedom” (King 1). King includes his audience in the idea of freedom for African Americans. He implies that freedom of King’s people is connected to the freedom of everyone just by using the pronoun ‘we’. King allows his audience to believe in a better future and also to connect with King’s people, unifying the country and promoting social equality. King not only uses pronouns to promote his thoughts, but he also uses repetition.
According to the Sources, you can see that American involvement in WWI had been unpopular in the USA. Democratic President Wilson, a liberal idealist, believed that the League of Nations offered the best way to secure future world peace, and had made it a fundamental part of his Fourteen Points regarding the post-war peace treaties. Republican Senator Borah, a devout nationalist, believe that the League of Nations would encourage states to 'meddle ' in each other 's affairs, making future wares more
