In his letter from Birmingham jail, written in August of 1963, King outlined the four steps, “In any nonviolent campaign there are four basic steps: collection of facts to determine whether injustices are alive, negotiation, self-purification, and direct action” (Letter from Birmingham Jail, 1). He knew injustices were evident from the accounts of abuse endured by African Americans. He tried to negotiate with the political leaders, but they refused so King had to move on to the last two steps. Self-purification was the hardest, but most important step of the process in starting a nonviolent campaign. It was a workshop, teaching supporters of the cause how to suffer abuse without retaliating.
There he wrote "Letter from Birmingham City Jail," which advocates civil disobedience against unjust laws. After years of marches, protests, speeches, and conferences in 1968, Martin Luther King, Jr. was assassinated. In conclusion, Martin Luther king and Gandhi had more comparisons than contrasts, however they were both protesting for different injustice problems in their government using nun violence acts they both had the same believes about civil disobedience and they both end up in jail. Even though Gandhi end up in jail more times than Martin Luther
Both of them used rhetoric and persuasive speaking and writing skills to make their cases bolder. Martin Luther King Jr. heavily used anaphora, emphasizing on how him and the people of America “cannot be satisfied” until racism is brought to an end. Atticus uses analogy when he says, “This case is as simple as black and white.” (Lee, 224). Whenever Atticus is presenting a point, he often went about it with a question. He uses this to flow through his speech, such as when he stated: “What did her father do?
“ I have decided to stick with love. Hate is too great a burden to bear” - Martin Luther King Jr. (Garland). We all know and learn about the famous Dr. King and what he did, but do we actually follow up his role in our own lives? Martin Luther King Jr. is famous for his non-violent protests and teachings inspired by Ghandi. We should not just take Dr. King’s work for granted, but rather be grateful that he did what he did.
Source B describes, “2. Symbolism: Names or symbols are given to those classified as ‘different’. Jews living in Nazi occupied Europe were made to wear a Star of David.” This statement emphasizes the idea that the government is making the Jewish population stand out, and they are influencing other Germans to mistreat anyone with a Star of David on their clothes. Thus, the government persuaded the population with the idea that Jewish people should be mocked and
He thought that communism was a Jewish invention and that was another reason why he hated the Jews. It took great courage to oppose Hitler. While Germany was at war with many other countries, bombs were going everywhere. Neighboring houses needed to go in a safe spot to hide from the bombs, and being with Nazi supporters can be a little nerve wracking when you don’t
Hatred of the Jewish population was spreading from France, and it began to infiltrate Germany. Hitler utilized this by aligning himself with the Catholic Church and creating a negative image of the Jewish population. Christianity was beginning to break away from Judaism, so Hitler began to portray the Jews as the killers of Jesus. Hitler also blamed the loss of World War I on the Jews, as well as blamed them for the economic turmoil that Germany was facing after the Treaty of Versailles. He labeled Jews as money hungry individuals since they were able to have well-paying occupations that were outside of Christian law.
The holocaust was the result of hate, miss-understanding, and anti-Semitism in government however the idea or thinking from the leader of it nation Adolf Hitler about that the root of all the country’s problems was the Jews. Final Solution According to the history the
In 1963, Martin Luther King Jr. was arrested and imprisoned in Birmingham regarding his protest activities on segregation. While in jail, King wrote an open letter in response to eight white clergymen who were criticizing his actions. In the letter, King defends the use of nonviolent protests and demonstrations against segregation and racism through the use of allusions to religious figures and values. Throughout his letter, her makes various references to symbols of religious authority and uses the ideas of extremism and togetherness to show the clergymen the reasoning behind his passionate cause. King begins his letter showing his authority in the Christian denomination as he states that he serves as the president of the Southern Christian
For example, the support in the clergymen’s letter is found when they are stating that there has been local “friction and unrest” from these protests proving that these protests are stirring up trouble (Wood 174). In King’s letter, the supports that he uses throughout his letter are references from people back in history such as Socrates, biblical references, and personal anecdotes about how he has to explain to his children when they ask him “Why do white people treat colored people so mean?” (Wood 179). Furthermore, the warrant in the clergymen letter is that protests and violence are not the way to figure out these problems about segregation. Similarly, King’s warrant includes how violence is not the answer, but sees protests and peaceful demonstration are necessary for change and attention. The backing for the clergymen’s letter was that the protests are causing nothing more but trouble in Birmingham, while the backing for King’s letter was that the protests will help everyone come together and fight the segregation and create a civil rights movement that will end
Hitler had brainwashed the German citizens into believing the Jews were the problem because they did not fit Hitler’s standard. Hitler went as far as creating scenarios such as fires and then blamed the Jewish people for it. Hitler also spread his ideas through his speeches, Hitler had a gift when it came to giving speeches to people. Hitler used his gift of speech in order to turn the people against the Jews. Another way Hitler placed blame on Jews was through propaganda, he altered their views and thoughts.
He develops his argument very good because he manages to connect with the audience. He shows a lot of emotion and evidence when he says a "white person killed Martin Luther king." He tells everyone that we should work together and that they should be fighting against each others side because that is what Martin was fighting for that they should stop being racist and stop treating dark skin people like they do not belong there. He also says that Martin "dedicated his life to love and justice between fellow human beings. In paragraph 2 he says "I have some very sad news" and it shows his emotion toward the assassination not only because he was fighting for something good but also because that was his brother.
It’s easy to see why Hitler had such massive support in the time leading up to his time in power, he heavily used propaganda to promote his views and those of the Nazi party. Nazi propaganda was extremely anti-Semitic in the fact that it targeted and blamed the Jewish population for many past German failures. In 1941 Jews were forced to were the Yellow Gold star and a flyer “When you see this symbol…” was published concerning how Germans should look at the Jews. It states that, “Remember what the Jews have done to our people. Now for the first time, World Jewry openly says what it wants: ‘Germany must die!’”.
As tension grows along around the Nuremberg laws, different ways of propaganda are being used from the Nazi’s to grow more difficulty towards the Jews. It’s an an advantage to push out more hate and fear,in other words it’s an advantage to the Nazi’s. It also relies on false evidence or lies as it mostly was used a lot against the Jews from them being told as being aliens, demons, all sorts of lies to convince the German society that they were monsters, as they told enough lies,” Man is not what he think he is, he is what he hides”, www.goodreads.com. Propaganda is basically a “welcome mat” towards the Jews, as the new laws take place, it established the silent-majority to leave them out of society. It just about to show hate, fear, propaganda, and other elements were took into play to the Holocaust to display a potential to destroy and to end the Jews as we know it, even though it was prevented of the destruction of a religious ethnicity, it could have ultimately end a race in humankind as we know it as one man can do it all through the support of an army and a
St. Augustine claims that the conversions of well-known, influential individuals like Victorinus are even more so important because their action brings more people closer to God. He states that, “and on Victorinus, tongue, which the devil had wielded like a huge, sharp weapon to destroy many, the greater was the gladness with which your children rightly rejoiced on seeing the powerful foe bound by our King and his weaponry seized, cleaned, and made fit to serve in your honor as equipment useful to the Master for every good purpose” (14). God uses a tyrant’s oppression and conversion to influence and bring the oppressed people to
