Timed Writing During the price increase of industrial steels in the early 1960’s, president John F Kennedy delivered a very powerful and effective speech to the steel executives. John F Kennedy announced his speech on April 11, 1962 at a news conference during a period of “ economic distress.” He utilizes many different rhetorical strategies to get his point across about how manufacturing steel companies should lower their prices. Throughout his speech, Kennedy develops a very critical and accusatory tone to blame the steel industry executives for this time of despair. Kennedy also uses very powerful diction to convince the steel executives to lower the prices, and to rally up every American during this economic crisis. Throughout Kennedy’s
Andrew Carnegie was a “robber baron” as shown in the way he acted towards the people who helped him reach the top and the terrible working environment that he subjected his workers to. He did various things in an attempt at overshadowing the awful things he did and positively alter his public image. His mentor, Thomas Scott, taught him the skills he would use to become the undisputed king of steel. Costs were the most important aspect of any business and reducing those required cutting wages, demanding 13 hour days and utilizing spies as a way to thwart possible strikes. Many years after Carnegie had gone out on his own, Scott met with him thinking that the years they spent together and all he had taught him would unquestionably result in help in his time of trouble.
An additional time that he uses pathos when he says "To those people in the huts and villages of half the globe struggling to break the bonds of mass misery... ". This makes people feel bad about the condition others go though and it will compel them to help out. In conclusion, President John F Kennedy persuades the audience that they should fight for equality and democracy around the world and inspired millions using antitheses, metaphors,
Senator Joseph McCarthy was a merciless politician who would be censured by the Senate in 1954 for his false accusations. However, his political journey throughout the country had a significant impact on the American public. Americans let fear override their conscious and allowed a bully to insert panic into their minds. McCarthy’s crusade was powerful and convinced the naive public during a time of war to question their own government without sufficient
Many of the American people favored President John F. Kennedy and were utterly upset and grieving when he was killed. Some people felt that he was too inexperienced, young, and scandalous to efficiently carry-out the duties of the president of the United States, despite that, they were still shocked when he was assassinated. The evidence that was found of President Kennedy’s death was incredibly contradicting, therefore conspiracy theories have been formulated throughout the years. One of those theories is that the hit was ordered by the Mafia; they would have many reasons, such as, to show power, to retaliate, and eliminate their problem. The Mafia usually completes tasks underhandedly.
He applies to the emotion of his audience, rousing them to anger, at the same time strikes fear into the hearts of his white listeners. Malcolm X emphasizes specific words to make the audience feel that the government has failed. He also uses unfortunate facts to produce a sense of urgency from his audience for example, “ You have 22 million Afro-American who choices are being bound, whose little girls are being murdered, who leader are being shot down in broad daylight.” Malcolm X uses ethos in his speech by introducing himself and he builds credibility by comparing himself to other activists such as, Adam Clayton Powell and Dr. Martin Luther King, who was also a minister and political leaders during the civil rights movement. He related to the audience “we all have the same problem. They don’t hang you because you’re a Baptist; They hang you ‘cause you’re black.
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
In “The Biggest Loser” (October 23, 2015), Paul Krugman asserts that the Benghazi committee is a witch hunt and that ¨Trey Gowdy and company” are chumps. Mr. Krugman illustrates his displeasure with the committee and the head of it, Trey Gowdy, through belittling diction and Rhetorical question. He uses this choice in diction and rhetorical question in order to deter anyone from taking the accusations of the committee seriously by calling not only the committee “chumps” and but anyone who listens to the committee an ¨ even bigger chump” then the committee is. Krugman appeals to his more liberal audience by talking about the committee, and its tea party support, with a tone of contempt by using insulting diction like “loser” and “chump”. Krugman
Is capitalism morally justifiable? In a text called ' 'Why Doesn 't GM Sell Crack ' by Michael Moore, the author argues that corporate downzising should be as illegal as crack because downzising is hurting us as much as crack does and it destroys our community in the society. Moore is talking about big companies like GM, AT&T, and GE which fire people when the company is making records profits in the billions of dollars and how the excutives who do this aren 't look down on. According to Moore, the people in the business world like to say that ' 'profit is supreme ' ' and other thing they like to say is ' 'profit is king ' ' because for them, it 's all about making profit. Moore is using his own experience with a man who was sitting
Pathos is a means to convince an audience emotionally. When he claimed “while the wall is the most obvious and vivid demonstration of the failures of the Communist system… it is… an offense not only against history but an offense against humanity, separating families, dividing husbands and wives and brothers and sisters, and dividing a people who wish to be joined together” (Kennedy, “Ich bin ein Berliner”), he compellingly convinced the citizens of the West Berliner of how corruption and cruelty communism conquered East Germany by mentioning the separation of families and loved ones. President Kennedy have successfully invoked the sympathy from the West Berliner and made them feel what he wants them to feel as a consequence of communist corruption. This emotional appeal not only inspired the suffering and angered citizens to grow stronger against the European communist countries, but also enhanced the speech to be considered as one of the most compelling speeches of all
Furthermore, Ronald Reagan started his argument with uses of word choices and appeals of emotions which creates strong feelings that effectively helps him to persuade the Soviet Union as well as the president Gorbachev. As he mentioned in paragraph two “standing before the Brandenburg gate, every man is a German, separated from his fellow man, every man is a Berliner forced to look upon a scar” here Reagan expressed the feeling of not being able to be connected to the other part of German. Those emotional appeal makes the Soviet Union to think about how the people were not connected to the other side of the berlin wall, which creates an eagerness inside them to bring down the
The most common source of this attention due to media and politicians who see this issue as an epidemic to the economy due to their belief that these immigrants are taking jobs from American citizens. Take Donald Trump, who is advocating the construction of a wall on the border between Mexico and the United States to keep immigrates out. The underlying cause for the thinking process of these politicians as well as the public in general is racism. As it may very well be the case that the Immigration Agents that stormed the Mejia’s house were tipped off by some who rather the family not be in the United States at
He develops his argument very good because he manages to connect with the audience. He shows a lot of emotion and evidence when he says a "white person killed Martin Luther king." He tells everyone that we should work together and that they should be fighting against each others side because that is what Martin was fighting for that they should stop being racist and stop treating dark skin people like they do not belong there. He also says that Martin "dedicated his life to love and justice between fellow human beings. In paragraph 2 he says "I have some very sad news" and it shows his emotion toward the assassination not only because he was fighting for something good but also because that was his brother.
Trump took the role of the victim and dismantled the immigration system in the name of a slogan: “Make America Great Again.” This is his ideology; his constituency chooses to analyze the issue of immigration through this lense rather than grappling with the issue as a whole, asking critical questions, and determining the best solution. This cycle occurs because people live in a myth of sacrifice, wherein individuals are spiteful because of their mimetic desires. Mimetic rivalry inspires violence which motivates people to unify and blame a scapegoat. What the oppressor- Trump’s constituents- fail to realize is that the unity is only temporary; the scapegoat mechanism does not work and sacrificing is not the solution. Blaming immigrants for unemployment and crime rates is a diversionary tactic that avoids looking internally and realizing that these issues are the result of the inability of the white man to accept responsibility for his actions.
The majority of this article is emotion appeals. The author draws the conclusion that the way the Republican leaders in the United States are responding to this refugee situation is a way of repeating history. The number inferences made between the current situation and the Holocaust pull at the audience’s emotions. The Holocaust is such an powerful part of history with extreme hate and tragedy that at the mere mention of the word “Holocaust” emotions are being affected. The author furthers this tug at emotions by mentioning the story of St. Louis, reminding the us that United States has turned away people in need before and forced them into a death by ignoring their need for help.
