Joel Stein is a talented Times magazine author that wrote “The New Greatest Generation.” Stein’s writing voice is comical, and he is seen as an extraordinary writer. One of Joel Stein’s famous articles in Time magazine is titled “The New Greatest Generation.” Stein starts off by claiming that millennials are arrogant kids that will only hurt the future, supporting his arguments with data. During the middle of the article, he states his opinion on millennials and how he sympathizes with millennials. By the end of the article, he reverts his previous claim that millennials might not be terrible arrogant children and may prove everyone wrong by being the best generation to come. He uses evidence for his beginning argument and less evidence at the concluding argument of his
While he does not directly state his audience, one can assume that Rensin wrote not only to call the offending liberals out for their errors, but also to inform a younger audience in order to evoke change within the liberal community. This article, while rather long and repetitive, makes several important observations and implications on the liberal media and the liberal
Jewel “does not love in word, neither in tongue, but in deed and in truth”, Faulkner’s idea is that Jewels behavior is solely due to the fact that his mother never really outwardly gave any of her children compassion so Jewel picked up on this and continued to keep up with this behavior (1 John 3:18). Darl’s behaviors on the other hand are quite selfish and only prove to be for the benefit of himself and his own self gain. Darl wants to have all the attention that he does not get from his mother to be solely on him and no one else. Faulkner’s reasoning behind the very different behaviors of these two brothers is to express the very extent in which the
In the article, Birds and Bees, No Let’s Talk about Dollars and Cents, by Ben Stein, he successfully makes his point to inform his son that he needs self discipline to create human and financial capital to have a more stable life. The young boy has been living large his whole life and his father wants to help him keep it going by having self-discipline to make smart decisions so he doesn’t live in fear and insecurity. Ben Stein uses many anecdotes to get the point across to his son and the readers of the New York Times that people are capable of coming from nothing and turning into something with the willpower to make smart choices. With the use of anecdotes and repetition all throughout the letter, it allows Stein to utilize logos, pathos,
But I say he’s a God damn good worker”(Steinbeck, 23). George describes Lennie honestly, but it shows the cruel side of humanity by pointing out Lennie’s weaknesses and his inability to fix them. Steinbeck’s tone sets up a very honest and cruel world that man lives in Steinbeck’s use of
Some readers might brush him off as a religious fanatic and a cruel, domineering father; others might identify with his struggle to raise his son how he thinks best. Some might be moved by Reb Saunders’s tears of apology; others might think that he abused Danny and that his apology could not possibly make up for it. Like Reuven, nobody is quite sure just how to feel about Reb Saunders by the end of the novel, which is actually a good thing in a different angle. It meant that The Chosen had accomplished a big goal. It enabled the readers to see beyond the surface of things and people, into deeper meanings.
With his op-ed piece “Generation X-the weakest generation?” published in the Washington Post, the political opinion writer Dana Milbank asks a question: is the generation he hails from the weakest in terms of accomplishments? As Milbank states in his piece, “We grew up soft: unthreatened, unchallenged and uninspired. We lacked a cause greater than self,”. Milbank, having written about politics in society for many years, is known for giving readers his own views on the political atmosphere through “characterizing political debate as consisting of two unreasonable poles” his “habitual and inflexible” posture on certain issues and by viewing himself “as a truth-teller caught in the middle” (“Greg Marx”). This op-ed piece continues his tradition
According to Professor Jeffrey Bosworth, in his editorial “Hunting for Hope in Modern America,” he discusses the “screwed” millennial generation and the potential they have to be successful, despite current existing United States problems. Bosworth explains this from three different perspectives: the current issues in America, the positive attributes of the millennial generation, and what the millennial generation should do to succeed. In Bosworth’s opening proposition he elucidates the “[millennial] generation is screwed”. He expounds the millennial generation is predicted to “do worse than the previous generation”. Bosworth shows current issues in American by discussing how the United States is rising in debt and accumulating taxes are waiting to be taken care of by millennials.
This is evidenced further in Richard’s soliloquy when he disparagingly says, “But I, that am not shap’d for sportive tricks, Nor made to court an amorous looking glass; I, that am rudely stamp’d” (I.i.14-16). The shift from ‘Our’ to ‘I’ emphasizes Richard’s isolation and affirms his vulnerable characterization. Richard also garners sympathy from the audience by enlisting them as his accomplices or allies for his future crimes. The audience inevitably becomes invested in Richard’s journey and can identify with his hunger for power. Admittedly, there is a shift in the audience’s perception of Richard as the play develops and his actions come to fruition.
One stereotype shown is that belief that older adults are incapable of learning something new. When John moves in with his father while his mother recovers, he notices many things about his father that was not present the last time he visited him. To help him become more independent John creates flash cards for his father. He even encourages his father to get his driver’s license. Amazing, Jake’s independence does improve and he is able to get his license.
