It is obvious that Schindler risk his life, determining whether he did it out of empathy, impulse, self-interest, Influence is a good question. At one point if you would have asked me this question I would have said self-interest, but now looking at the full picture and watching the movie my vision of him has shifted. The things he saw and did, the way he took action, trying to save lives. Schindler was raised to believe to hate Jews at a young age, and everyone he new and maybe even trusted was going around tormenting jews and killing for fun. It makes me wonder if he truly was not sure of which way to go.
In the short story, “Cut” the author, Bob Greene, came to a realization early in his life that shaped him into the person he is today and later discovered that others were affected by a similar situation. His purpose was different than a typical author as he acted as a distributor of information for the reader and didn’t serve the purpose to explain.

Richard Nixon uses the appeals of logos in his speech that seem logical but all they do is mask the face of reality. In his speech Nixon states, “To leave office before my term is completed is abhorrent to every instinct in my body. But as president, I must put the interest of America first.” The harsh reality is, Nixon would’ve been impeached, so he decided to resign so he could exit his presidency and still have some pride left.

“The Earth Men” “The Earth Men” is one of the few stories in the novel that has quite significant importance. The story formally introduces the martians capability to communicate by telepathy, which is how they are able to communicate with humans and speak the same language. Their capability to do so is also significant throughout the novel as they use it to manipulate humans in later expeditions. For example in “ The Third Expedition”, the martians use telepathy to manipulate Captain John Black and his Men by making it appear as if their long dead family members experienced an afterlife on mars. Instances like this are seen throughout the story and wouldn't be clear without the introduction this story provides.

A prominent political analyst and author Mark Braider recently made the case in a 2015 New York Times piece stating that corporations and their influence on our government is a major, often un-recognized pitfall of America. While many may be ignorant of the issue, those who are informed often come to the same conclusions as Braider in his argument about to which the extent of corporations in America affect our government and way of life; often for the worse. Looking at the macro scale at which government has an effect the lives we live; private prisons serve as the epitome in commercial-political interaction.
