After examining the article, heymann’s use of Pathos should be seen as effective at persuading his audience because of how he uses positive and negative emotions, writes clearly and applies vivid details. Heymann begins his article by clearly laying out his emotional standpoint. He states, “Authorizing torture is a bad and dangerous idea that can easily be made to sound plausible.” This quote shows Pathos well in that he is being very clear about his subject matter. The reader, then, is able to understand the issue he is looking at with this single introductory line. This shows Pathos because there is no confusion about what Heymann is going to be talking about in the article.
Point of view plays a very strong role in the novel because it is what decides what readers know and don't know. In this case, it decided how readers feel and helps feed ideas into their minds. "I knew exactly what to make of it, and it made me mad enough to spit...what business had dad in healing that man...what right had Holgren to cross paths with the Great God Almighty"(80). The use of specific words in this case is what gives the readers the idea of the event being a miracle.

Another example is when Brutus is asked to join the assassins, and he says “If these be motives weak, break off betimes, And every man hence to his idle bed; so let high-sighted tyranny range on” (JC 2.1.121-123). A clearer version of what he is saying, is that it is the duty of every Roman man to prevent tyranny from surviving. He also states that if the man’s intentions are not good, then they should not participate in the execution of the task. This is directed towards some of the other assassins because he knew many of them had poor intentions.

His courage is an immense contrast to his father, who only suffers his handicap, showing that people need to live up to their potential and be brave to change the world. Looking away and adapting to wrong actions is not acceptable. In Contrast Harrison storms in saying he is “the emperor, (…) the greatest ruler who has ever lived” and “everybody must do what (he says)”, he sounds power-mad, perhaps even insane. Vonnegut says that individuals need to fight only to make his hero a power-hungry godlike creature, being both an unreachable ideal and unreliable threat.
Which oer' leaps itself and falls on the other" (1.7.25-28). Here Macbeth shows his willingness to do anything to gain power. He admits that even though he doesn't have a good reason to kill Duncan he still wants to. Macbeth shows his free will by saying, "I am settled, and bend up each corporal agent to this terrible feat. Away, and mock the time with fairest show: False face must hide what the false heart doth know"(1.7.90-93).
To begin his text structure was strong. The crisis is a persuasive paper because you can relate and understand the points he's trying to make.

When the stranger met Walton, he instantly knew that he warned Walton because he could tell that Walton was adventuring blindly without any thoughtful considerations or concrete plan to make it a success.

This is seen throughout the entire article, but specifically when he says things like “We are also convinced that nonviolence is more powerful than violence” (Line 12). He does this in order to show that together, they can make a change and that no one reader is alienated in their belief that protest of all kinds should be nonviolent. He creates a sense of community and a connection between his readers and himself by using the plural pronoun “we.” Additionally, he contrasts the plural “we” with the statement “those who will see violence as the shortcut to change.” (Line 47). This is extremely effective as he uses it, because he shows that the “we” he is constantly referring to is much different than the “those” who will utilize violence and essentially wreak havoc on the world. He makes the reader want to be a part of the “we”, and not the “those” when he contrasts the plural pronoun with other, non-inclusive words.
