Jane Addams, the speaker in Document 4, criticized the Spanish-American War and the militarism it encouraged in the United States. This gave many people the idea that maybe imperialism wasn’t such a great idea. They shunned the idea of using violence in order to grow the American Empire. William Graham Sumner, also criticized imperialism (Document 2). He believed that assimilating people to American culture through military force would cause the United States to seem violent like Spain.
The personal impact of these events have been apparent to me. By examining the acts of moral courage displayed by Galileo, we can make a direct relation to the holocaust, and understand the personal impact of both stories, it is clear that I have changed as a person from the impact of the connection between Galileo’s acts of moral courage and the example from the holocaust. Galileo Galilei is such an important person in history. All though the Copernican theory was proven later on in history, his ideas and thoughts were rejected, due to popular belief of the church and most people. “His flair for self-promotion earned him powerful friends among Italy’s ruling elite and enemies among the Catholic Church’s
The letters said they were from the people and said they don't want Caesar to become king. They tossed the letters in Brutus's window on the Ides of March to trick him. Cassius knew Brutus is good to the people so if he could trick Brutus into thinking the people wrote it he could get him to join. Though there are many reasons for Brutus to join the conspiracy there are many reasons why not to. One of them is Brutus could be tracked down and executed for killing Caesar.
To begin with, Chavez uses logos in his speech through a rhetorical question, “Who gets killed in the case of violent revolution? The poor, the workers.” The people who are arguing for violent revolutions are mostly poor workers whom Chavez refers to. Chavez uses logic to show these people that if they use violent revolts, they are most likely the ones going to be killed which for the most part will deter the people who are aiming for this. Another appeal Chavez uses is ethos to show everyone as people we are expected to do the right thing. In the speech he says, “We are convinced that when people are faced with a direct appeal from the poor struggling nonviolently against great odds, they will react positively.” This appeals to peoples’ morals by saying people are expected to react in a positive way when dealing with struggling
The united states was established by a group of revolutionaries, so the love of rebellion has been instilled in every patriotic citizen. They root for the underdog and fight for the downtrodden. Thersites could be one of these underdogs. He is weak, poor and generally hated by the men in power, so one might question why is he is not the hero of this story. The answer is found in the context of the poem.
This is also clearly not true, as it has been proven that McCarthy accused others to gain political power. For example, McCarthy’s downfall was caused when he clashed with the army. Roberts claims that “McCarthy and his chief counsel, Roy M. Cohn, were accused of improperly using their influence to get preferential assignments for… David Schine, who had been drafted into the military.” (3). To sum this up, those who supported McCarthy had few rebuttals in regards to the turmoil he created in America. Therefore, McCarthyism stirred the pot and intensified the strife between
The people willingly obey and follow all their orders without knowing what they are actually doing. Many of these individual’s jobs, like Winston’s, are to hide and change facts to allow people to have faith in the Party. Many “books… were recalled and rewritten again and again, and were invariably reissued without any admission that any alteration had been made” to hide information from the people. The protagonist, Winston, figures out the real problem with this system and realizes the Party has tricked their citizens. Orwell exhibits the citizen’s oblivious attitude toward everything shown to them and their growing faith for the party allows them to follow the party’s orders.
Utilizing the information given in Kovaly’s memoir and the textbook, I believe most citizens were embracing towards communisim because they (the citizens) were under the impression that the democracy let the Nazi party take over and failed to defend the country against Hitler. The Nazi and the communist both relied on the perpetuation of fear, violence, scapegoating, and misinformation to accomplish
The fuel of resentment motivated Hannibal to do this at a time when Rome was waging the Second Illyrian War. The Army was unable to send reinforcements so the city fell with little resistance. This unsporting and dishonourable campaign of Hannibal shocked the Romans, they and demanded Hannibal to be extradited by the Carthaginian government. However we can see that this led the senate of Rome to realise that they were not dealing with just another pundit, but rather a smart thinking and hard planning tactician. Whilst Livy pays much respect to him for this, in his writings, at the early stage, we can see that it is not just Hannibal who gets lauded and acclaimed.
Persuasion is primarily used in the debate between Brutus and Antony after Caesar’s death. Brutus attempts to sway the crowd of people toward believing that Caesar’s death was for good intentions using his honor, while Antony secretly turns the crowd against the conspirators with evidence; according to Susan Hines, it is the display of Caesar’s body that has successfully turned the crowd of people against the conspirators (135-136). Antony’s speech causes the crowd of people to riot and leads to the battle at the end of the play. There is also persuasion involved in Brutus joining the conspiracy, using letters that appear to have come from other citizens. To ensure Caesar’s arrival at the state house, Decius tries to convince Caesar to still go despite the warnings, by reinterpreting Calpurnia’s dream and telling Caesar that the Senate might rethink their decision of crowning him if he doesn’t arrive (Shakespeare Act 2 Scene 2.
