To begin with, Chavez uses logos in his speech through a rhetorical question, “Who gets killed in the case of violent revolution? The poor, the workers.” The people who are arguing for violent revolutions are mostly poor workers whom Chavez refers to. Chavez uses logic to show these people that if they use violent revolts, they are most likely the ones going to be killed which for the most part will deter the people who are aiming for this. Another appeal Chavez uses is ethos to show everyone as people we are expected to do the right thing. In the speech he says, “We are convinced that when people are faced with a direct appeal from the poor struggling nonviolently against great odds, they will react positively.” This appeals to peoples’ morals by saying people are expected to react in a positive way when dealing with struggling
He acknowledges that our current strategy against violence has shown no real effect on the number of brutal acts committed against people. Cesar attempts to share his thoughts with the masses in order to spread his solution to violence. He evokes strong emotions such as sadness, and guilt within his audience, along with posing logical questions that really make the audience think and listen to what he is saying. It is essential that Chavez's audience knows nonviolence has a more profound, lasting effect on society that paves the road ahead for change. In order to evoke this change Chavez must alter the way his audience thinks.
Hypocrisy is one of the worst moral crimes someone can commit. Benjamin Banneker's letter to Thomas Jefferson explains that he has committed this crime. He has gone back on his morale of everyone having unalienable rights by letting slavery continue to happen, and Banneker believes he is the prime contender in allowing this crime to happen and that he should be the start and make the move to stop slavery. Banneker explains this to Jefferson in such a way that the letter is both respectful and thoughtful while also being rude due to the use of how he phrases his sentences, that his argument can not be questioned because of his use of ‘Sir’ to show his respect, and his ardent choice of words which are all collectively used to explain how Jefferson is being hypocritical and show him why he should fix this.
In her mind she has already broken the law, but she thinks beyond her crime into the interrupting Creon 's law and preparing herself for the punishment ahead. Antigone is willing to go against the norm because she believes it would ease her conscience and reveal what is just, however this act is violent in itself (Arendt 1969:75). This reveals the struggle between the individual (Antigone) and the state (Creon). Benjamin states above that thoughts are fragments, which carry the relationship between thought and action (1968: 50). This is clear to see that Windston and John’s previous lives come in fragments, it is disconnected from one another, but they can relate to each other.
Chavez is in the mentality that nonviolence is the only way his followers- the rest of the labor union- will achieve their goals and abstain from any injuries or harm that could possibly happen to them. In order to elaborate upon this, he employs the use of pathos in hopes that they might be more cautious of taking a violent stance. According to the prompt Cesar states “If we resort to violence then one of two things will happen: either violence will be escalated and there will be many injuries and perhaps deaths…”.
It is better to be punishing than kind. Machiavelli explains that cruelty can be well-thought-out if taken in one stab, the wicked deeds executed all at once, made essential for survival. Machiavelli argues, “We may add this note that when a prince takes a new state, he should calculate the sum of all the injuries he will have to do, and do them all at once, so as not to have to do new ones every day; simply by not repeating them, he will then be able to reassure people, and win them over to his side with benefits.” It is better to not make preserving them would be against one 's benefits. Leaders must avoid making themselves loathed and looked down on; the kindness of the people is a better protection than any stronghold. A leader’s job should be involved so that his reputation is boosted.
During the course of the play, Macbeth goal is to fulfill only the prophecies that are beneficial to him and him only. His thirst for power allowed his character flaw to show, for he was consumed with hubris. While he is thinking about his plan to kill Duncan, Macbeth has all of these reasons not to kill Duncan, but his ambition is so strong, Macbeth cannot deny his urge to murder. “I have no spur to prick the sides of my intent, but only vaulting ambition” (I, vii, 25-27). He also says that, by eliminating Duncan, he would only be teaching his subjects that a rise to power is possible through violence, and karma would come back to bite him.
Thomas Paine had a massive influence on the colonist because of his word choice in his speech. Thomas Paine helped bring the attention to what is right, and support, join the war. Thomas Paine used pathos to alarm the colonist. He used pathos since it can put fear into the people and once they are alarmed they would want to protect themselves and their colonies. “These are the times that try men’s souls.” Thomas Paine also speaks
The works of Dittmann and Golding imply that people will be more violent in a survival situations that are difficult to exit because they provide the person with an ideology to justify their actions so that they will not be held accountable. In the article “What makes good people do bad things?” the author states that situations can foster evil by “Providing people with an ideology to justify beliefs for actions”(Dittmann) and by making “exiting the situation difficult”(Dittmann). Golding examines these points in his novel through his character Jack, one of the older boys who fills a
As stated in the text “Our people made that choice the choice to go to sameness”. (Lois Lowry pg 95) This proves that the society changed to sameness. He told him how differences and emotions played a role in the creation of a war. The people of the community do not miss the freedom of choice because they have not yet experienced it so if they do experience this freedom they can make wrong decisions and lead to deaths, war and lies. In this society there is sameness so there is no love as well as sadness so the people
Throughout the article, Chavez counters nonviolence with violence informing the "what ifs". Chavez states "if it fails our only alternative is violence". The people need an understanding of what is taking place in order to handle however amount of struggle is occurring nonviolently. Violence happens when concern about any human aspect gets deepened. Nonviolence is a more successful way to prevent future issues.
I find Charles Lewis to have a valid point by saying that this country is in fact very militant. The reason why I think he says we don 't want to associate ourselves with wanting to be militant is because of all of the horrible things that can happen during war. When watching why do we fight every president has always gone into another country and tried to do it so that it was as if they did something to up hold America 's freedom. America likes to police the world and most Americans agree with it, this makes them feel safe. I think the real truth though in this statement is that fighting as a nation is in our best interest and we all should support anything our country
