Now, the primary informative method President Regan uses throughout this speech is explanatory. President Regan cites the explanatory style to showcase the issues that currently plague the country such as the economic struggle, big government, and enemies of freedom. For instance, President Regan showcases the problem of the nation borrowing money to sustain its economy is not a viable long-term solution.

“Requiem for the American Dream,” a documentary arranged by Peter D. Hutchison, Kelly Nyks, and Jared P. Scott, features an MIT professor of linguistics, Noam Chomsky, who narrates the film on the topic of inequality, democratization, solidarity, and unjust systems of today’s economy.

Another very article would be “Common Sense” by Thomas Paine.
