Dr. King expresses how we are prone to let our lives be invaded with propaganda, legions of half truths, and how the press is pursuing an agenda that the viewers are fed half truths. From back then to present, while improving the system of public education in the United States is the critical building block to the economic prosperity of our nation and its citizens, providing every child with a quality education is far more important than that. Dr. King wants to show the key to whether society can achieve the principles, values, democracy, and humanity that we claim.

He regarded the diplomacy as an outpost, intervening the nations in Central and South America by imposing the US's method and supervision. The diplomacy often resorted to military power as a solution to the internal conflicts within the region.
Because England had sent soldiers to the colonies and provide for all defense, they deemed it necessary to implement taxes on the colonists as a way of making up for the colonies’ lack of effort during the war. For example, the Sugar Acts and all that followed were created for the sole purpose of fixing the economic losses from the war. A successful outcome was achieved due to the strategies in which the colonists were able to gather and assemble people to lead the revolution. Through many protests, boycotts, and literature, such as the use pamphlets, information was spread throughout the colonies and united these people under a common goal. For example, the First Continental Congress was a meeting in which the most influential leaders of the time came together to discuss a course of action in how to effectively present their demands.

Spencer reinforced the belief that science, industry and progress were interlinked, and with the evolution of society their nations would bloom. Therefore, if an individual was failing in life, blame
Dunbar-Ortiz began her book by introducing the audience to the fact that the colonization of the Indigenous People of present-day United States and the captivation of their land by Anglo settlers was motivated by both their “belief in white supremacy” (36) and the theory of Social Darwinism, a theory which became popular in the mid-nineteenth century (39). For one, according to Dunbar-Ortiz, “skin color has been and continues to be a key component of racism in the United States” (36); racism is what fueled white supremacy to formulate, allowing for Anglo settlers to consider themselves more supreme that the Native people of North America. In addition to the perception of white supremacy, Anglo settlers were also influenced by the concept of Social Darwinism, in which English scientists theorized that people of color “has descended from apes, while the English were descendents of ‘man’ who had been created by God ‘in his own image’” (39).

Unlike Douglass , Rodriguez saw that reading and writing as a tool to empower oneself and that people that don't take advantage are the only ones to blame.
