Ann Landers once said, “Love is friendship that has caught fire. It is quiet understanding, mutual confidence, sharing and forgiving. It is loyalty through good and bad times. It settles for less than perfection and makes allowances for human weaknesses.” This quotation means that friendship is can be good, and bad. Understanding one another through good, and bad, but allowing the other to get hurt causes greater problems.
Throughout the first paragraph of King’s speech, he used emotional diction with words such as struggle, poverty, and poor to prove that the war in Vietnam was bringing down the American’s and their families fighting overseas. King proved this partly with the quote, “America would never invest the necessary funds… in the rehabilitation of its poor so long as adventures like Vietnam continued…” (King, Beyond, 9). King was establishing his point that America was more troubled about healing and adjusting other countries, but would never invest the same in their own country. He was in the process of proving that it wasn 't a money issue in America, but an equality issue. Along with, “...and the almost facile connection between the war in Vietnam
The events that occurred in Vietnam remain a debate which continues to threaten our country’s politics. I will not deny our country was left with a scar which the years have shown us may very possibly never heal. I write from Washington as one who witnessed the politics that landed us in Vietnam, as one who supported the United States ' decision to get involved in this fight which could only have been described as taking place worlds away. The war may have been bloody, as all wars are, and the results may not have been the favored ones we had intended, but I stand by our decision. My intentions are not to paint over the events that took place in Vietnam as the ideal pathway, not to justify but to explain.
The impressment of American sailors to forcefully be a part of the Royal Navy sparked tensions between the British. Under the British authority, the Royal Navy took unaware sailors from American merchant ships. The justification of impressment was based on the concept of British Americans citizenship. Sailors were subject to impressment due to the lack of evidence of citizenship and previous citizenship from the motherland. The American seamen were required to serve on behalf of the British army to fight against the United States.
Control, ignorance, and obedience is all shown in the book Brave New World by Aldous Huxley. The society have some freedoms but are still controlled by the resident controllers and also bound by the Hypnopaedia. This resembles countries in our world now and also in history; counties have fought other countries to get away from societies that are controlled, wars for independence. People have the sense of independence and would never let something like the society in a Brave New World; history has proven it too. Mustafa Mond, the Resident Controller of Western Europe, tells a story of a war.
“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.
However, South Carolina started getting annoyed that America still had a fort there even though they had succeeded.. So South Carolina sent a message to Fort Sumter warning them that if they didn 't agree to evacuate the area, then the Confederate States were gonna have to open fire on the fort. Though the threat was serious and the risks were
involvement in Vietnam, came growing opposing sentiments Stateside. While many were angered by the war, two main beliefs emerged. Those who believed the U.S. was not aggressive enough were known as the Hawks and promoted further deployment of soldiers. Those who were against the war, which famously included the Anti-War movement, were known ad the Doves and wished for the U.S. to leave Vietnam (textBook). Astonishingly, the Anti-War movement was the first of its kind in many ways, and is a clear example of the evolution of Civil Disobedience.
The long-term effects could only be speculated, however, it’s certain that human rights violations and internal displacement would have continued. Though regardless of speculation, one of the most possible long-term effects would have been a civil war that would eventually turn into a world war, all due to violations of human rights. Aside from not solving the problem, if there were to be a potential solution, the solution would first establish law and order through military force and then proceed with a real peace agreement that is guarded by law and order. Essentially, because the enforcement of law and order is denatured in Colombia due to constant violence and violations, it would take military force from a different country to reinstitute the system of law and order into the corrupted society. After this is done, there would be a good setting of regulation in society and a peace agreement could be proceeded without any further
Perfectionism has proved to cause depression as were most people think of it as a saving grace and it leads to a happy life. Ann W. Smith proves this to us “We live in a culture that values perfection, and that leads us to believe that doing things perfectly leads to happiness and success” (Smith). This is true, she also states that “Perfectionists have a deep need to
