The documents will be presented in a manner of similarities and differences, through purpose, syntax and rhetorical devices. The Second Inaugural address was told on March 4th,1865 at the White House, Washington D.C. Accordingly, by the time the speech was told it was during the Civil War. The speaker, President Abraham Lincoln, spoke to a thousand of people about the cause of the civil war being slavery. Not only that, but Abraham questions the divine providence and asserts that God caused the war for God," now wills to remove, He gives to both North and South this terrible war as the woe due to those by whom the offense [slavery] came."
The study of slavery in the southern half of the United States prior to the Civil War examines the institution in a capitalistic sense, choosing to see the punishment of slaves as unlikely due to the paternalistic relationship that allegedly existed between slaves and their masters. Recently, historiographical texts, such as River of Dark Dreams: Slavery and Empire in the Cotton Kingdom by Walter Johnson, have taken up the mantle of disproving this. In his introduction, Johnson describes the institution of slavery as such: "The Cotton Kingdom was built out of sun, water, and soil; animal energy, human labor, and mother wit; grain, flesh, and cotton; pain, hunger, and fatigue; blood, milk, semen, and shit." In regards to the title of his book, Johnson asserts that the importance of slavery in terms of economic history did not lie with Massachusetts, but along the Mississippi River, additionally dismantling prior historiography surrounding slavery. Serving as the major thesis of his book, Johnson convincingly and ambitiously argues that slaves labored, resisted, and reproduced in the Mississippi Valley Region, and it was the response by southerners to material limitations, such as land degradation, in this region that slaveholders increasingly projected their power onto the world stage, taking part in an imperialism that affected Cuba, Nicaragua, Brazil, and even the Atlantic Slave Trade.
In An Imperfect God, Henry Wiencek presents George Washington as a specific case through which to study what he calls the great “paradox” of American history: how a nation founded on the philosophies of liberty and equality also kept human beings in chains. Washington was a slave-owner his entire life and he took the role of managing the slaves who lived and worked at Mount Vernon including their purchase and sale. Prior to the Revolution, Washington “was just another striving young planter, blithely ordering breeding wenches for his slave trade, blithely exiling a man to a likely death at hard labor” (Wiencek 133) The fortune produced by Washington’s slaves kept him in the ranks of Virginia’s planter elite, securing the social and political prestige that helped lead the Second Continental Congress to appoint him commander-in-chief of the Continental Army in 1775. Washington was joined by slaves while leading the Continental Army in the field of battle, as well as during his time as president. Yet Wiencek also argues that the Revolution and the establishment of the new democracy changed Washington’s beliefs on slavery.
As a result, States created their own constitutions about abolishing slavery. Before the Civil War, many people fought back and forth between sides of slavery. The United States’ creation of the Thirteenth through the Fifteenth Amendments was an influential compromise between United States and slavery because it challenged current society, abolished slavery, and created an equal country. Throughout the world’s history slavery was there. There were slave traders that captured and sold the slaves.
Akin to this, John Millar takes this concept to its logical limitations by putting forward the argument that “the spirit of liberty appears in commercial countries” (pg88). Essentially putting forward the idea that violence and chaotic nature of despotic rule is the by-product of passionate man, that is to say, men who are yet to come into contact with the civilizing and domesticating experience of commerce, and in turn the gentleness and polishing of economic interest. Hirschman emphasizes that there is nothing minimal in regards to the relationship between economic interest and liberty. Hirschman achieves this by directing attention to the Physiocrats’ authoritarian perversion of Millar’s view. According to Hirschman the Physiocrats “oddly advocate both freedom from Governmental interference with the market and the enforcement of this freedom by a total power ruler whose self-interest is tied up with the right economic system” (pg98).
All the units of a product are similar and there are no alternative to that commodity in the firm. The firm are controlling over the market by offering a product that is not same with other. The firm may use specialized information like trademark and copyright in order to establish legal authority over the production of some goods and services.

Adam Smith contended for an "arrangement of regular freedom where singular exertion was the maker of the social great.
Sebenius bring out a quote by Francois de Calliere to exemplify his attitude towards mutually beneficial negotiations and when boiled down to its core it states “friendship between men is nothing but commerce, but the great secret of negotiation is to bring out common advantages to both sides and to link them so that they appear equally balanced to both parties” through this he moves on with his theories on linking issues as this may result in a situation where individual issues can be regarded as a zero-sum game when under negotiations but when compiled and linked in a greater issue package, there is an opening for overall bargains that are mutually beneficial for all parties, he does however also note that these packages are not always beneficial for a specific party, but in these cases we may at times see the further addition of issues to the package as a form of relative gain
The political identities play a significant role in the understanding of Williams, Dubois, and Nkrumah’s Pan-Africanism and how it has shaped their lives. Henry Sylvester Williams was born in Trinidad in 1869 where he eventually moved to London to organize the formation of the Pan-African Association. This resulted in the first Pan-African conference in 1900, the beginnings of the modern Pan-African movement. Several historians claim Henry Sylvester Williams originally conceived the term “Pan-African”. His abolitionist notions made him desire the removal of all forms of British colonialism from Africa and the West Indies, thus shaping Williams’ political identity.
