Past leaders such as Andrew Jackson, Adolf Hitler, Benito Mussolini, and Marc Antony are evidence that society does not reward morality and good character in leadership. Society is drawn to leaders that have good rhetoric, propaganda, and charismatic personalities, and society supports them despite their immorality. Society is concerned about stability more than the morality of their leaders and will support immoral leaders in times of crisis to provide stability. In history there have been multiple leaders that have used rhetoric, propaganda and charismatic personalities to gain power, despite their morals.

I’m fairly confident that I at the very least passed the test with a 3, maybe even a 4. I think that I did as well as I usually do on multiple choice, which hopefully means that I got more than half of them right, but there were more than a few questions that I had trouble with and I ended up not being very confident with my answers for them, however on the whole I think I did alright. For the essays, I spent WAY too much time on the DBQ (I went into the rhetorical analysis time in order to finish it) and I didn’t do a very good time synthesising and using the sources. I’m fairly certain that I answered the prompt thoroughly, but I relied too much on outside information and didn’t use many quotes from the sources. For the rhetorical analysis,

Summary: Despite the fact that the two articles have the same theme of “rhetorical situation,” these two authors have completely different point of views on the relationship between rhetorical and situation. In “The Rhetorical Situation,” Lloyd Bitzer starts the article by asking a “confusing” question–what is a rhetorical situation? In order to explain his question, he puts it in another way by referring rhetorical situation to “the nature of those contexts in which speakers or writers create rhetorical discourse” (1).
The importance of the pen writing on the legal pad in the beginning of the movie is strobl writing about his journey with PFC Phelps. The movie was like the story that he was writing on the airplane by the end of the movie. He wrote about the people who respected him and how he respected him because he was a PFC with six ribbons. Stories he heard about him by listen to other people.
Referring to Michael Mateas’ article, I argue that Gerty is an example of “behavioral interactionist AI” which its different with HAL, Gerty focuses with embodied agents interacting in a physical or virtual world. HAL is an example of “symbolist, classical AI”, which focuses with symbolic manipulation and problem solving. Thus both of these two AL has abilities to accomplish many specific capabilities, such as playing chess, communicate with people, etc. However, HAL its illustrates goal-driven behavior, which leads him to express inner conflicts and tells complicated lies that creates strong contrast with Gerty; Gerty is more emotional about Sam but not trying to achieve his goal. HAL accurately represents the vision of classic AI, but Gerty
The rest of chapter 6 continues with the themes of fear and loss of youth and hope. The soldiers experiences a loss of innocence more extreme than anyone back at home. It was extreme, abrupt, and forever changed the lives of the men. They will never again be able to fit in back home because of the horrific events they went through. Paul believes that, “even if these scenes of our youth were given back to us we would hardly know what to do.”
Hi Daniel. From reading your post, you seem like a pretty chill person! I’m very surprised that in your group of friends in middle school there wasn’t a ‘leader’. Usually, there is that one person that tends to stand out a little bit more than the rest, and sometimes without necessarily wanting too, they are seen as the head of the group. But, I think it’s a lot better to not have that ‘leader’, that way no one feels peer pressured to do something.
I have chosen this article because the tittle seems very enticing. I want to know deeper information on how we can read people’s thoughts just by looking at them. I am also interested with the psychological issue so I decided to read and learn through this article. 4. Explain briefly in four or five sentences what the article is about.
Stewart’s position is that of a lifelong slave. Stewart would rather die than to live her whole life “shaking carpets” or “tending upon gentlemen’s tables”. Her key message is that African Americans should have the same, equal rights as Americans fight for. She wants her audience to fully understand the effects on a lifelong slave. She discusses how the service tears the body away and says “nature herself becomes almost exhausted.”
In regards to Hart and Daughton, the role of analysis in rhetorical criticism plays an important role in a variety of ways. From persuasion, to structure and form, to syntax, each showcases a significant faction of analysis in rhetorical criticism. Persuasion, relates to several differential logic forms – human and informal, which tie together arguments considered thin, and those considered higher in class. In analyzing, persuasively, it is important that an individual does not immediately classify a reasoning put forth by a rhetor, to be not credible. This is due to the assumptions, or biases people bring with them in daily life; such as, the idea that people have reasons for doing what they do, and the idea that persuasion is generally credible.
Warped War Logic War, what is it good for? Edwin Starr asked this very good question in his famous song. War is violent, gruesome, and deadly, so why is it used to solve problems? Innocent people go fight in wars to try and win other people’s battles. When really thought about, the reasons people go to war do not make sense.
Good Morning Mr. Sale, I know that you are working to find a good niche for me, but I thought it might be useful to put in writing some ways that I think can serve the students of Swain County. AP USH. I would like to continue teaching AP for a few more years until I can mentor someone to take over the program. I believe that AP provides a valuable opportunity for our students to learn academic skills that will help them succeed in college, but more importantly, I think it helps them hone their “grit” skills. They often realize they can achieve more than they ever thought possible.
