Britain quickly became afraid of Germany’s motives, so they built an even stronger navy.

Theodore Roosevelt’s speech “National Duties” calls for nationalism and unity, as it says that each individual must work hard and that individuals must work together. Furthermore, it works to motivate our nation by using two ideas – what a nation may leave behind and how a nation should conduct itself. The speech itself, although given while he was Vice President, accurately describes what his actions as president were, whether it be regarding nationalism, personal matters, or foreign diplomacy. His ideology of how a nation should act, seen in the phrase “speaking softly and carrying a big stick” works to motivate many, including our current military, because it focuses on civility backed with power. This idea of leadership style, combined with looking at what Theodore Roosevelt did during his presidency, is very similar to Trump’s way of leading our nation, although they came into office with different political experience.
On March 5th 1946, not even one year after the overwhelming victory of the Alliance over the Nazis in World War II, Winston Churchill, former Prime Minister of the United Kingdom at the time (1940 – 1945), was invited to deliver a speech at Westminster College, in Fulton, Missouri.

This speech reflected his own personal opinion, and was aimed at the people of the United States of America, his countrymen across the Atlantic ocean and other nations. The nature of it is political, taking into consideration the historical context within it occurred: tensions between the Western Bloc (composed of the United States of America, NATO allies and others) and the Eastern Bloc (the Soviet Union and its allies in the Warsaw Pact), just after World War II had ended. These tensions were perpetuated for decades and were the cause of the conflict known as the Cold War.

In the twentieth century, conflicts were fought on the front lines and the minds of the people through propaganda. Global governments applied persuasive communication by the use of visual images, which can be easily recognized and understood, to agitate or psersuade the general public. “Hitler’s fervent desire to attain propaganda supremacy among nations was a direct result of the German defeat in World War I and his belief that superior allied propaganda trumped Kaiser Wilhelm II’s meager output.” It seemed that Hilter valued the importance of effective propaganda by appointing Josef Goebbels, as The Reichs Ministry of Public Enlightenment and Propaganda minister, to enforce Nazim idealogy. The ministry was responsible for censorship and controlling the literature, visual arts, broadcasting and other forms of mass media. They used propaganda to influence the way people think.
