Testing Men’s Emotions What turned scared, timid men into brave battle ready soldiers? During the time of the revolutionary war when men were needed to go up against the British. Thomas Paine was using persuasive writing techniques to get men to stand up and fight. In Thomas Paine’s
Macbeth is about to do a horrible deed. He is going to kill his friend and his king. The trust and the loyalty have been broken . People today would lynch themselves for dollars . We would sell out those who mean the most to us just get money or just to say I'm on top.
It was extremely important for Paine to persuade the colonist to continue the war for American independence. He used pathos by using a parent’s love for their children against them to convince the army to continue on with the war. By way of example, when Paine is talking about a tori and patriotic father “finished with this unfatherly expression ‘Well! Give me peace in my day…’ and a generous parent should have said ‘If there must be trouble let it be in my day; that my child may have peace’ and this single reflection, well applied, is sufficient enough to awaken every man to duty” (Paine 109).
Imagine having a life or death situation, and all you need to do is convince the public to fight against it? Would you use use logic, ethics or emotions to persuade them to come to a decision? During the time that the colonies were being approached by the British, the colonist were using every way possible to avoid the fight; however, the British kept coming and it was time to fight. Patrick Henry used pathos as his persuasive technique in his “Give Me Liberty or Give Me Death” speech to convince the Virginia Convention.
In Thomas Paine’s piece, “The American Crisis”, he uses stylistic and persuasive elements to inspire the soldiers of the American revolution. Tone has a very key role in Paine’s attempt to persuade the men. Words such as passionate, direct, and self-assured can be used to describe the piece. Right from the start Paine is direct with what the tone of the piece will be; “these are the times that try men’s souls.” (98).
John tells a war story, from when he was young and fought in the vietnam war . His grandson hears the story and thinks his grandpa is a coward because he ran away from a trap.

Cap refuses to abandon his belief that he is meant to protect and represent the people of America and not the faceless government. Finally, Captain America ultimately sacrifices his life to protect the life of another.

When you are picturing men fighting for a country, you don't picture men that don't care about the country, you picture men you have a deep love for their country and the people in it. The people fighting for your country should be dedicated to your country, because at any moment and time they can escape and turn on you revealing all the military plans set into play. Men in the military fight every day and every night for our country you have to be seriously dedicated to fight for three or four days at a time with little to no rest. For example, within a physical education class it is mandatory for you to run within the class so they don't take it seriously. While a track athlete is choosing to go to practice and be on the team so they are working hard every day to stay on the

Father doesn 't like the war that is going on, he says that is it nonsense. Mother isn 't a big fan either, because she knows that the Patriots are going to lose to the british because the British have the strongest army in the world, she thinks that the patriots are putting their life in danger for nothing. Sam on the other hand thinks otherwise he thinks that it is worth dying to be free, he thinks that they will win the war and no longer be owned by england. In My Brother Sam is Dead, although both sides of shown author 's, Collier and Collier ultimately argue that war is not relevant. One way the authors argue for/against war is there is a division in the Meeker family.

The reader learns his father is still bitter about his own time in the war and Dieter often refuses to give a second thought to his opinions. At this time he is blind of any consequences war may have on him, and is determined to join whether or not he be killed in the process stating, “If he ever got the chance to go to war, he would return with medals, not with whining complaints. Or perhaps he would not return, but in Krumbach every one would know of his bravery.

The movie starts out with Benjamin Martin’s family (especially boys) are really excited to fight in war. As Gabriel similarly quoted, “I’m fighting for freedom, what are you fighting for Father? Oh wait, you don’t.” It influence and drive the audience to see that this revolution is good and they have to do whatever it takes to win it. You will be a fool or coward if you don’t take sides with the rebels or patriots (quoted by Anne Howard, Gabriel’s to-be wife).
Throughout Thomas Paine's "The Crisis: number one" he uses rhetorical devices, which properly justify his claim that Britain has wronged them and they should revolt. In the first paragraph of the excerpt, Paine he uses a metaphor to show how bad British rule truly is. In the excerpt, it says "Britain, with an army to enforce her tyranny, has declared that she has a right not only to tax but to bind us in all cases whatsoever, and if being bound in that manner, is not slavery, then is there not such a thing as slavery upon earth". In using this metaphor the British tyranny being compared to slavery.
