Since they could no longer offer jobs to donors, politicians had to find other sources for campaign money. As a result, these politicians often turned to big business for funding, which led to corruption in the government. An 1889 political cartoon by Joseph Keppler titled “Bosses of the Senate” showcases this fact. It depicts heavy men sitting in the Senate, each with the names of different monopolies with a money symbol written on their shirts. For example, one says “Standard Oil Trust” while another says “Steel Beam Trust.”
In response, Pericles rounded up all of the residents and animals of the countryside inside the city walls. Within the next 2 years, a horrible plague spread through Athens, killing 1/3 of the population. A true hero would not have been this careless to have a large concentration of people in such a small area,
Previous times in the government when corruption occured caused the Republicans to split and fight against each other. This time, it created more problems for an already corrupt government. The period after Garfield’s term, people wanted to change politics with a civil service reform. This reform allowed officials to join office who were qualified, which made becoming part of the office a lot more fair and equal for everyone.

Simply, through the state of Peter's conditions, one can assume the cruel, brutal, and gruesome results of the war on individual Marines. Furthermore, the war leaves the soldiers with little to no humanity left in them. A soldier mentions, “I wanted to shoot every Iraqi I saw, every day” (164-165).

Political machines obtained power through bribery and rewarding people who voted for them and caused corruption, poor service, racial tensions, and violence in local governments. During the Progress Era a wave of political reform and social activism began and political machines were removed causing various aspects of local government to change in favor of the public’s interest. Reformers politicians were now held more accountable to their community once they reached power when new voting rights were implemented. Minorities, women, and the poor were now able to have their voice heard through voting. By voting, the public’s interests were also heard concerning businesses as well.
With that one of the biggest destructive forces is pride as seen in the story. It ended one's life and destroyed another. Brother was ashamed of Doodle, so he pushed him to the limit, and when the time came left him to die. Therefore Brother is guilty of murder in the case of Doodles
The Funeral Oration of Pericles: A Primary Text Analysis In Pericles’ Funeral Oration, the famous and influential text in 430 B.C was given by Pericles to traditionally honor the death of the soldiers that fought in war and serviced in the Athenian military. This interpretation of the oration is written by Thucydides, as it is a manuscript of what Pericles said to the Athenian public. Through this text, Pericles focuses on honoring the fallen soldiers, but he also emphases the values of Athenian society and the social structure of the invention of democracy, as it is introduced for the first time ever in history. The Funeral Oration of Pericles expresses the distinct values of strong moral standards for social structure and introduces democracy, as it reinforces laws and the need for equal justice.
In his Eulogy delivered before the Athenians in 431 BCE during the Great Peloponnesian war, Pericles states, “We alone do good to our neighbors not upon a calculation of interest, but in the confidence of freedom and in a frank and fearless spirit.” In this quote, Pericles is communicating the idea that Athenians perform good deeds and help other polies not to benefit from it but for the sake of democracy and chivalry. The Eulogy of Pericles is accurate to a minimal extent because, while on the one hand the Athenians offered protection to their allies, on the other hand they took advantage of them and attacked mercilessly. The idea of chivalry stated in the Eulogy of Pericles should be considered an accurate reflection of Ancient Athens because the Delian league was created in order

Considering that both speeches used logos, Pericles’ Funeral Oration presented a better logical appeal because he brings forth hypothetical examples. In the speech, Pericles says " I would ask you to count as gain the greater part of your life, in which you have been happy, and remember that what remains is not long," ( page 77, 32-34), he creates a valid argument using logic saying if you are sad because your son died just remember the parts of your life where you were happy and don’t worry because you don’t have much left to live. Furthermore, Susan B. Anthony uses logos too, for example, “It was, we the people; not we, the white male citizens… but we, the whole people, who formed the Union” (Copeland 321), she uses logos to emphasize how
