“The harder the conflict, the more glorious the triumph.” Before Thomas Paine proposed to fight against the British, the colonists were already under stressful situations such as; taxes, unjust acts/laws, and the British army seeming more intimidating due to the sheer numbers. For Thomas Paines Crisis No. 1 speech, he primarily resorts to ethos, logos, and pathos as ways to appeal the colonists from his own personal experience and to attract the feelings about America from the colonists which evidently urges the colonists to fight for it. Thomas Paine utilizes both ethos and logos for the more ethical (personal experience) and logical (rhetoric) approach towards a waning situation suchlike the American Revolution. As an colonist/American, Thomas Paine knows that the upcoming war will be inevitable, therefore he tries his best to persuade the other colonists to fight by logically appealing to their senses.
In December of 1776, Thomas Paine rose before the colonists and strove to sway them to form a militia (DeStefano). Paine knew that America needed their independence and he would stop at nothing to convince all others likewise. “Tyranny, like hell, is not easily conquered; yet we have this consolation with us, that the harder the conflict, the more glorious the triumph” (Paine). This quote, from Crisis No. 1 by Thomas Paine, is just one piece of the numerable persuasive techniques he uses throughout his speech.
He shows the opposing view, “shall we try argument?”, and goes on to explain that they have “…been trying that for the last ten years” (Henry). Henry provides views from those that would oppose him and says why they are wrong. This makes the audience support him even more because they will see why the opponent’s viewpoint is wrong and he is right. He shows that they have run through all the different ways that they could stop the war and have no other choice but to initiate war between colonists and the British. It satisfies the colonists who want to fight back and opens the eyes of the President and Delegates to the fact that the British leave no other
Creon’s view Sophocles the author of Antigone (441 b.c.) Creon’s monologue grabs the reader's attention by making the readers think about how the law is important and you should never go back on their word. After Creon supersedes the place of the king and then Antigone is caught dusting the body of Polyneices, she is jailed and Haemon is tries to protect her as she will be his wife. As the monologue goes you notice regular uses of rhetorical devices such as pathos ,and logos. Creon uses these devices to further help his argument and persuade his people and his son haemon of doing the right choice by following his new rule of thwarting to bury polyneices.
“Come mothers and fathers Throughout the land And don 't criticize What you can 't understand Your sons and your daughters Are beyond your command Your old road is rapidly agin ' Please get out of the new one If you can 't lend your hand For the times they are a-changin” As the Vietnam War progressed, the American public was divided. Young people questioned the validity of American intervention, and those older, particularly veterans of previous foreign wars and their spouses, held to their belief that if the government said this was a just war, it was, and the U.S. needed to be in the fight. A confluence of events changed the latter perception, among them, the Chicago 7, the My Lai massacre, and the Kent State Shootings.
This belief is unfounded by the fact that later that very week, President Trump moved forces and shifted stations in what was obviously a larger plan than he is letting on. It is believed that just because the President has not revealed his wider plan, we should not automatically believe his actions are unplanned. In conclusion, the population should not fear because of this step forward that President Trump has taken, instead they should be happy and relieved that because of his forward actions the war in Syria is most likely going to start coming to a close. Because of his forward action, people in Syria are gaining new hope. Because of his actions, the world as a whole is headed toward a better, safer
For instance, there was tension between the United States military and the media during the Iraqi War. Peter Braestrup wrote in his article “Censored” that “in Saudi Arabia newsmen were limited to guided tours of selected American units…that was the first major gripe in the current revival of the chronic tensions between the U.S. military and the American media.” (16). I strongly believe that Americans have the right to know the details of war regardless of how unpleasant it is. Many Americans have family members who are in the military services, and they need to know what is really going on in the war whether they want to continue to support the war, or protest against it if the war starts getting out of control. If I have family members who are in war combat, I absolutely do not want to put their life 100% in the government’s hands because their lives are just as precious as someone who works in an office.
After days of reading passage after passage and watching every video I was able to come across that spoke about the War on Terror, I realized how separated and chaotic this world is. Therefore the solution that I think is best is the one where the United States would help stabilize and build a stronger relationship with the Middle East to combat terrorism by creating and supporting a variety of organizations which will make the U.S. as long-term investments against terrorism. The United States is constantly losing money due to all of the investments we make going towards the military is we would form some kind of alliance with the MIddle East there wouldn 't be so much need of our military fighting over there. We not only be saving money but
Paine states this in many ways he believes that the Americans would be just as strong or even better off if they didn't have the influence of the british. Saying, “America would have flourished as much, and probably much more, had no European power had any thing to do with her”. Paine realizes that Americans are coming together over their hatred for Britain making the country stronger. He also talks about how the British to refuse to negotiate anymore, “a new method of thinking hath arisen. All plans, proposals, &c. prior to the nineteenth of April, I. E. to the commencement of hostilities, are like the almanacks of the last year;... the one proposing force, the other friendship; but it hath so far happened that the first hath failed, and the second”.
The aim was to encourage Americans not to let terrorism destroy their sense of protection, but to unite and rally. His response to his pivoting moment in history is widely represented within the Bush Doctrine. The Bush Doctrine already had played out in the Clinton presidency with tensions with Saddam Hussein, and earlier in 2001 when Bush made the decision to withdraw from “Kyoto Protocol,” for the sake of saving money despite the concerns greenhouse gases were imposing on the environment. In regards to 9/11, America was set to go after any nation that assisted or supported any sort of terrorism yet aiding those in their reliefs for prevention. This would lead to the invasions of Afghanistan to counterattack Al-qaeda, the terrorist group that claimed responsibility for the
