In 1962, in the midst of the international space race, steel prices in the U.S. began to rise. In this speech delivered by John F. Kennedy, he claims that there is no justification for these increasing steel prices through the use of logos and pathos. Whilst attempting to convince and create reason for steel companies to reduce their prices, JFK employs the use of logic-best argumentation in order to convey his message. However, at times, because his audience isn't merely citizens of the country but also executives of the steel companies, the line between pathos and logos is subtle, for he appeals to the emotions general American public through the use of verifiable data. He proposes a series of alternate (and very possible realities) that
Therefore, this theme of belief is significant in The Rocket. In conclusion, in Ray Bradbury’s 1950 dystopian novel, The Rocket, there are two main themes. imagination, and belief in yourself. The Rocket, is of a father who wants to bring his family to space but everyone thinks that it is an impossible task to accomplish. This novel communicates on how those two themes are important for the story.
It seems that there are three main points in this section, including The Watergate Scandal, escalating the Vietnam War and the slight rise and huge fall of us return. During the election of 1968, the republican party felt as if they had no choose but let Richard Nixon return and try again as president. Nixon made a huge promise to end the Vietnam war so he was elected as the president again. Nixon started off with two positives which were the Woodstock festival did not turn into a bloodbath and the celebration of the first man on the moon. I found it very funny how Nixon thought it was best to escalated the war instead of making it smaller.
Some provide education, farming assistance, healthcare and complete construction projects for people in need around the globe. This organization has helped improve foreign attitudes towards the United States. He wanted the United States to lead the way in space exploration. Prior to his presidency, the United States was always one step behind the Soviet Union in space endeavors. JFK increased spending on the space program in order to try and get ahead in the space race.
This scenario is not at all difficult to conceive when you remember back to actual American history, when conspiracy theorists quite vocally kept the idea alive that the lunar landings of the late 60s and early 70s were faked. It was reasoned that the U.S. was feeling pressured to outdo Russia in every way during the Cold War era, but the NASA program lacked the funding (Fuller). Instigators of the Capricorn I deception, intended to manipulate public opinion for a program that, in their minds, was worthy of a large chunk of taxpayers’ dollars regardless of the program’s true performance (Capricorn). On the other hand, the plotters in Wag the Dog were never really under any allusion that they were acting for the greater good. Even to Machiavelli purists, a lie to cover up selfish misconduct, a crime or incompetence cannot be treated the same as a lie to ensure public safety, for instance (Machiavelli).
He stood trial because he published a book on theories of how the solar system worked. He personally believed in the Copernican theory, but the Catholic church didn’t. So Galileo lost in this trial, and had to sign a document, and live in house arrest for the rest of his life. Galileo Galilei accomplished, impacted, and reflects Renaissance ideas many times. He figured out a belief to a solar system, he improved the telescope, and he invented a
THE WATERGATE SCANDAL The Space Race was a crucial part in the advancement of technology. The United States of America and the Soviet Union were in a competition to get the first man in space. In 1957, a new era of space exploration had launched, this was known as the Space Race. The Space Race fueled the tension between the Soviet Union and the United States. Both countries were competing to get the first person onto the moon.
There are people who believe that the entire moon landing was “ The greatest government conspiracy of all time”. But the question is; why would they do that? What would be the reason for a government, who wants their country to trust them, to fake such an incredible event? After World War II drew to a close in the mid-20th century, both the US and
Commencing his speech, President Reagan delivered his reflections of the Challenger disaster to a stunned and saddened nation. Although the speech was primarily informative, he used a persuasive format in his reference to NASA. Imparting to the American people there were no plans to discontinue further space exploration, yet, delivering a discreet warning to NASA about the investigation that must occur following this horrid tragedy, “We don’t keep secrets and cover up,” impressing on NASA to “do it all up front and in public.” Incorporating a warning in a speech of this nature could have come across as heartless, however; Reagan’s delivery was flawless; direct, brief, and clear, this subtle portent reassured the families left behind there
It was not to end the war. We are often taught that the use of the atomic bomb was necessary to end the war with Japan at the earliest possible moment, but judging by the statements of many high ranking political and military personnel, this is simply not the case. "The Japanese were ready to surrender and it wasn 't necessary to hit them with that awful thing ... I hated to see our country be the first to use such a weapon,"Eisenhower said in 1963. On September 9, 1945, Admiral William F. Halsey, commander of the Third Fleet, was publicly quoted as stating that the atomic bomb was used because the scientists had a “toy and they wanted to try it out…” He further stated that “the first atomic bomb was an unnecessary experiment” and that it was“a mistake to ever drop it.” By all the evidence and information we have above, it shows us that to end the WWII is not really the reason for U.S. to drop that bombs on Japan.
From past experiences we know that appealing to the people doesn’t get far because the publics’ opinion on, if we go to war or no, isn’t worth anything compared to the Presidents. The president has a trend of making decisions on their own without seeking advice from any other source. The threat of a draft would possibly hinder the rush to war because of the human cost but attempting to change how the president makes decisions is a better solution because it does not have as many negative effects as that of a
Woodhouse knew America would not get involved if Iran was nationalizing British oil. Dulles took the CIA to intervene, however, the CIA was never used to overthrow a foreign government. Dulles was excited to overthrow Iran. He was excited to use new tactics instead of sending troops to foreign land. Dulles “thought he might have the tool he needed, a way to shift the balance of world power without resorting to military force (122)”.
They both agreed that the president of the United States needed to know about the dangers that the Germans could cause. Einstein wrote a letter to President Roosevelt saying that they needed to develop an atomic research program later in the year. Roosevelt didn 't see the reason nor the urgency for the project but agreed to proceed slowly.
Roland Reagan came into the office during his first term hoping to use his administration to fight communism and end the Cold War. He finds out it was not easy as he thought. So, in his second term he turned to a different strategy getting to know someone like Gorbachev. The conservatives thought he was making a mistake. Roland Reagan’s success finally proved to the conservatives that his friendship with Gorbachev was not a dupe.
Discussion 6: Question 1: Zinn portrays the Nixon presidency in general as a failure all on its own and the Watergate scandal adding to the failure as a dirty play by Nixon. Zinn thinks Nixon was involved in “dirty tricks” because he thinks Nixon knew all about and personally orchestrated the Watergate scandal. He proves this by telling us that top Republican and Democratic leaders in the House of Representatives that they would not support any criminal proceedings against him. Question 2: Schweikart and Allen’s interpretation of this period in American history is different from Zinn’s because he tells more of and focuses on the achievements and victories of this period of time while Zinn tells of the good and bad and focuses mostly on the
