The military gives people a sense of protection, which is important, but how much is too much? On February 19, 1950, Albert Einstein gave a speech at Princeton University titled “Peace in the Atomic Era”. In the speech he was discussing his opinion on what he stated was the “most important political question”. He constructed a well argument which persuaded his audience that security through ordnance isn’t a way to achieve peace throughout the nations, but collaboration is. In his speech Einstein used multiple persuasive techniques to support his argument, such as logos, pathos, and rhetorical questions.
One of the earliest well-known opponents of Great Britain was Patrick Henry. Throughout his life he gave many speeches supporting the American Government, ultimately making a name for himself. During a time of uncertainty for the colonists in 1775, Henry still supported his opinions on American Democracy. In his opinion, the only choice left was to go to war with Great Britain. In order to gain the colonist's approval, he issued a marvelous speech persuading the colonists to go to war. Throughout his speech, Henry used many rhetorical appeals to convince the members of the Viginia Convention by using ethos, pathos, and logos.
On December 9, 1948, as the United States was approaching a proposal towards the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, which seemed unfair and uncompromised, first lady, Eleanor Roosevelt displayed a motivational and moving speech to allow the citizens of America to come together as one to make the best of the situation that was proposed in front of them.The analysis of the tingling speech on the adoption of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, will explore the deep rhetorical devices used to compel the audience and America, including the true purpose and background of this particular eye-opening speech.
Thomas Paine, a local pamphleteer in the pre-Revolutionary War era, wrote a convincing pamphlet to any colonists who were not already supporting the war for independence from Great Britain. In his argument, Paine uses rhetorical strategy, an emotional aspect, and divine revelation towards the citizens to create a very moving, passionate, and convincing call to arms.
In this excerpt from Daniel Webster’s address to the loss during the Battle at Bunker Hill, he talks about very emotional and joyful issues. Because of this he alters his tone to sound loving towards his fellow people by appealing to ethos and logos and giving them a sense of hope. He uses specific word choice and vocabulary to keep the piece sounding sophisticated and appropriate for the situation. From the beginning of the excerpt to the end he continues to use a very complex and elaborate sentence structure that also adds to the sophistication of his speech.
“Everyone has a moment in history which belongs particularly to him, and he carries the stamp of that passing moment forever.” John Knowles lived during the Contemporary Era, which spanned from 1945 until the present time.

In her eulogy, Margret Thatcher honors the former United States president Ronald Regan. In this, she uses many rhetorical strategies to convey her message.
In the 1940s, America was faced with a great decision, one that would affect not only the United States, but potentially the world. To enter war, or not to enter war? That was the question. Whether ‘tis more patriotic in the Americas to “sacrifice…normal interests in life in order to insure the safety and the welfare of [America]” or to take arms against a world of troubles, and by opposing end them (Lindbergh, and a little Shakespeare). Franklin D. Roosevelt and Charles Lindbergh represented the two sides of this argument: one strongly favored war while the other thought it would cause turmoil. Although the two had opposing viewpoints, each used the spirit and theme of patriotism in attempts to convince Americans to take hold of their viewpoint
Winston Churchill’s “Their Finest Hour” is written to encourage the citizens and soldiers of the United Kingdom to prepare for battle. The French had just fallen into the hands of the German army. There had also been an unexpected rescue of 338,000 British soldiers from German occupation (Burns). Prior to this speech, England was out of reach of the German army. However, as Germany’s control of France strengthens, the only thing that separates the German army from England is the English Channel. England is all that’s left of eastern Europe and has now become Germany’s primary target, bringing the battle to their shores (Burns). To inform and inspire the British people, Churchill uses tone, foreshadowing, and pathos to convey this important
I do agree with Joe Turnbull’s essay, and I also understand why Shepard Fairey keep continuing his artwork even though it might have raise so many ethical questions. Even though, the artists reserve the right to be able to express themselves within his/her artworks, the artwork should be within the range of appropriation. Fairey’s stickers should’ve been more in the private or not as common as door to door public for those people who actually support the theme of his work. Fairey also an artist that do not need to make more name but people still want more, according to Turnbull’s essay, Fairey was “reported net worth of $15 million” (Turnbull pg9/15).
During the buildup of World War II sprung two of the greatest orators that the world has known at the time Adolf Hitler and Winston Churchill. Although Hitler used his public speaking skills to rise as fuehrer and unite a country into a higher evil power and Churchill had used his to warn of the rise of this power and how the English government will fail its citizens, all of which is viewed as true. Mein Kampf is “a combination of a memoir and a statement of political philosophy. It includes some of Hitler’s characteristic racist and anti-Semetic ideas.”1 Even though it showed Hitler’s true thoughts but due to his rhetoric it only embodied the thoughts of all the citizens. This leads me to Winston Churchill

Martin Luther King, one of the leaders of the Civil Rights Movements, wrote a historical speech “I Have A Dream”(1963) in which he argued that “There will be neither rest nor tranquility in America until the Negro is granted his citizenship.”(102) Martin Luther King provides support for this argument by saying “That all men, yes, black men as well as white men, would be guaranteed the unalienable rights of life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness”, and by using juxtaposition,he states what’s in the historical documents versus what’s actually going on.
