He says that the colonists ' petition has been received with "an insidious smile". The use of the words "insidious smile" creates an emotional appeal, because it fools the patriots into trusting that the British would take care of their petitions (which they never would), but it really is a set-up to enslave the colonists and keep them under its rules. He also references biblical allusion to create a metaphor between the positive reception of their petitions and the kiss which Judas gave to Jesus before his betrayal. The kiss, appearing to be something affectionate and positive, is, in fact, what eventually causes Jesus ' death. With the uses of the allusion/metaphor, Henry wants to reveal the British pretentious mask, that the British will NOT consider their benefits and ultimately lead to their enslavement and betrayal.
Kelley goes on to call out New Jersey’s legislature, and has already discussed the legislatures of Alabama, Georgia, North, and South Carolina. While not a traditional strategy (i.e. not one usually taught), Kelley masterfully directs the reader’s anger at the leaders of these states. It would easier for Kelley to discuss the impact of child labor on society, but Kelley’s presentation of an enemy gives readers someone to write to and attack—it presents a solution, of sorts. Kelley’s brilliant use of rhetorical strategies causes the reader to experience her message rather than gloss over it.
These strategies work on the rhetorical appeals ethos and pathos. Exemplification appeals to pathos by making the audience feel sympathy for the immigrants for what they give up, and authority figures appeal to ethos by giving credibility to an expert, by supporting the argument through strong facts. In this essay, I plan to explore how these rhetorical strategies act on their respective appeals, how this is used to strengthen the Suarez-Orozco’s argument to persuade their audience, as well as explore other sources that may support this claim. One of the key strategies used by the Suarez-Orozcos, was the use of exemplification. An assumption they make is that their audience is a group of Americans who haven’t heard the stories of immigrants and the risks they take, but instead just assume they know the story.
Firstly, Florence Kelley uses rhetorical devices such as epistrophe, oxymorons, rhetorical questioning, and hypophora in order to fulfill her purpose. Kelley uses epistrophe in Line 6, “Men increase,
Shirley Jackson uses rhetoric in her fictional short story “The Lottery” to criticize the perpetuation of outdated traditions. She creates a fictional example that includes enthymemes, intrinsic appeals, and extrinsic proofs between characters as well as in the narration to make her thematic argument that mindlessly keeping traditions is foolish. The lottery example is deliberately exaggerated to accentuate her argument and to present an honorable case that her audience will support. In doing this, Jackson establishes a strong kairos and demonstrates her ability to aptly use rhetoric to make an argument through fiction. Jackson utilizes the dialogue between characters to make some of her strongest points and appeals, particularly through

Scott Russell Sanders’ passage from ‘Staying Put: making home in a Restless World’ gives readers the idea that roaming foreign territory and enforcing your ways is worse than staying put and adapting to your surroundings. Sanders achieves this mood through the use of parallelism, juxtaposition, rhetorical questions, and other rhetorical devices. Within the first sentence of the passage, Sanders paints a picture that Americans think that they are inherently good people, always the alpha of the pack that is the world. He describes our selfishness and need for acquiring more land as a ‘seductive virtue’, which can be found in lines 1-2. Sanders again pokes fun at the ‘American Lifestyle’ in lines 20-25.
The philosophy that herotic American and destructive enemies was solely developed by the method of ethos and pathos. Ethos help viewers understand the idea of the ideal, herotic, and perfect American through war propagandas. On the other hand, pathos play with viewers emotion to prove and demonstrate the idea of evil enemies. A company philosophy and persuasion causes viewers to have a bias opinion. Knowing a company philosophy will help the viewer to make less of a biased opinion on an idea or product.

Chris Hedges wrote this book to persuade the audience that the most essential skill a person can have is artifice, the skill of deception. Throughout the excerpt, Hedges covered the important of artifice by detailing the importance of personal narratives, where the reality is irrelevant (prompt). This topic is broadly known as controversial due to the fact that some people believe artifice is necessary to be successful in life. However, others believe there are various other skills one can possess while being just as successful.

David Brooks writer of “One Nation Slightly Divisible,” tries to control the audience’s minds by using “we” in his article. Similarly, Jonathan Rauch, writer of “In Defense of Prejudice: Why Incendiary Speech Must Be Protected” argues in a biased point of view in an unique way to attract audience to believe his personal view towards prejudice. Even though both Brooks and Rauch share the same bias perspective, Brooks reveals a more pervasive biased opinion compared to Rauch. David Brooks stands out with a positive effect of bias and to convince the readers and help unfold his viewpoint and grasp the audience 's attention. Rauch also uses bias to convince the reader but was not as effective as Brooks ' tactics used in emotion, argument and
Jeff Jacoby provides a strong argument in “Bring Back Flogging”, suggesting that we should adopt a few of the punishments of the Puritans. This argument is built on logical appeal, emotional appeal, and his own personal credibility as a writer. Providing statistics and information, Jacoby creates the logos, or logical appeal, and ethos, or personal credibility. In Addition, he uses ethos, or emotional appeal to force the reader to think about what they believe is morally worse. In “Bring Back Flogging”, Jacoby says Puritan forefathers punished crimes with flogging, including whipping and branding; however, in current times we tend to put a person in jail, no matter the crime.
The universal importance of the relationship between children and their primary care givers is a concept that most of society can relate to irrespective of whether they understand the ‘theory of attachment’ that underpin it. Therefore, framing the discussion of the broader treatment of asylum seekers in the context of treatment of Children and the negative consequences of detention and separation can generate a more compassionate understanding even from those who seek to promote a generally hard-line approach to asylum seekers. There has been significant media attention on the topic which is likely to have influenced the Turnbull governments policy in targeting the end to detaining refugee Children in Australia, although they continue to fund the detention of a number of children in offshore detention centres. (Hasham

While it is becoming common knowledge spanking has negative impacts on the emotional and psychological health of children, the practice still endures in American society. This is because our society regards the practice as one rooted in the saying, “Spare the rod, spoil the child.” In addition, this concept of discipline is believed by some to be a means of teaching a child their place in the world. Though this phrase and system derives from Judeo-Christian faith, in modern times it has become a senseless punishment tradition. The way in which religious customs turn into pointless ideologies or means to obtain the upper hand is frightening.
