He needed to get them to refuse to be a dog to the British and get the freedom they deserve. He used pathos as a persuasive technique in his speech to highlight fear and emotion to scare the colonists into agreeing with him. “I know of how way of judging the future but by the past.” (Henry 110) This was an effective quote because it is showing no matter what Henry is there with the colonist through this journey and that he cannot tell them exactly what is going to happen, but he can make a presumption based on what has already happened. He also uses ethos as a major component to his speech, this has to do with a lot of a trust. “For my part, whatever anguish of spirit it may cost, I am willing to know the whole truth, to know the worst and provide it.” (Henry 110) This is effective because no matter what he will be right by the colonist the entire time, he will not go and try to hide behind and push them off.
“We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness”. This statement by the Founding Fathers is the core disagreement between the 13 Colonies and Great Britain. Throughout this historical document, there are multiple arguments made to get the authors’ point across. The authors’ effectively use logos, ethos, and pathos to contribute to the formation of the concluding argument. Logos is used because the thesis is straight to the point and it is supported throughout the entire document.
This truth embraces all of human experiences because it is human nature to want to work together and this truth uses that part of humanity to justify the need for a government. 5. )What is the nature of law as described in Common Sense? Over whom is it binding and why? Common Sense if basically a rant on how badly the English have treated the colonists and why they should attempt to become independent from British rule.
Thomas Paine's Common Sense and The Declaration of Independence both speak against the heinous acts committed by the British and the stripping of natural human rights. Some of these natural rights include life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness. Both documents advocate the separation from Great Britain. The colonist's belief in the superiority of the republican self-government based on the natural rights of the people found its clearest American expression in Thomas Paine's Common Sense and The Declaration of Independence. In Thomas Paine's Common Sense, he declares that men are born free and equal and remain that way throughout life.
They all shared a main idea of natural rights. John Locke believed that all men had natural rights and they could state a person 's freedom and they could manage their belongings. In John Locke’s book, he says that “...We must consider, what state all men are naturally in…”(Document A). John Locke believed that the same species and rank should also be equal. Locke in his book stated that all men had natural rights to how they could manage their stuff.
During the apex of colonial America Thomas Jefferson wrote a document that severed the ties with Britain and started the revolutionary era. The declaration was designed to free the American colonists from the British sovereignty. This independence was justified in the list of grievances committed by King George on the American people, such as not having representation and being forced to pay unreasonable taxes. To help justify this independence further the Declaration of Independence also highlighted certain and paramount ideals that were beholden to the people of the new nation. These ideals included the consent of the governed, inalienable rights, and equality, all of which were essential to the new character that developed within the United
This has been the mantra of the Native American disproval of its dealings with the American government. With the new rule come the principles of exclusion and oppression, and a model for a privileged application of law. The discovery doctrine was also used by Justice Marshall to justify his decision. His endorsement of the discovery doctrine on principle in McIntosh facilitated the material dispossession of Native American lands. Furthermore, it also hampered the culture of the native peoples, on the basis of a doctrine which is inherently and biased and oppressive.
Continuing, it could be inferred that Ben Franklin is using Pathos by acting as if he naturally hates the Americans and desires to ruin them. Throughout the letter, Ben Franklin sounds like a patriot of Great Britain by insulting Americans and giving them ideas of what to do to them. Although, as Franklin includes ideas in his letter, he additionally incorporates counterpoints that would make him sound like he is trying to help. For example, Franklin claims that the laws of the conqueror are just; however, it is possible that such laws could be contrary to the laws of mankind, ultimately contradicting what he first claimed. Towards the end of the letter, Ben Franklin includes a paradox by claiming that Britain should massacre the Americans as they can bring in citizens from Britain so there wouldn’t be any rebellious acts.
Diefenbaker was able to combine the politics, which were related to conservancy, and the other issues concerned with social justice. He was an effective leader because he appreciated the presence of other ethic backgrounds besides being neither French nor an English. Moreover, John Diefenbaker maintained the human rights on the international basis a factor that ensured rights of diverse groups of people irrespective of their nationality were not violated. On the other hand, he was able to cater for people’s rights, safety, and freedom regardless of the power that they had. Therefore, the prime minister was interested with all people and was ready to protect and serve them on equal basis.
He expands his purpose by showing an example of human nature and that humans do not like the unknown, even if the unknown may be somewhat positive or beneficial. In line seventeen, Jefferson claims that the objects of a government have the right to revolt if they sense their rights are in danger and select new figures. This appeals to logos because he exemplifying that the governed are the ones in power by revolting against the government. Overall, Jefferson makes a good argument as to why Great Britain should relinquish control of America. He gives insight of the unpredictability and instability of human nature and delivers the offences Great Britain has committed.
