For instance, Eric Reid wrote in his article “Eric Reid: Why Colin Kaepernick and I Decided to Take a Knee” that he “remember[ed] thinking our posture was like a flag flown at half-mast to mark a tragedy” (Reid). Clearly, the protesters were not intentionally attempting to be disrespectful and view their actions as respectful, however, that does not change how they are viewed by others. According to Quin Hillyer, they should not “denigrate the symbols of a nation of good people” (Hillyer). Although the protesters feel they are being respectful they need to realize that from the opposite point of view their actions appear quite disrespectful (Hillyer). In addition, Eric also states that “we . . .
President Lincoln had to make the best decision for the country, even if he did not satisfy the interests of both groups. Presidents should not appeal to majorities nor minorities, but overall, make the best decision for the country as seen with George Washington, as well as Abraham Lincoln. Each knew what was best in the end and that is what made him a great leader. If the government continues to apply filters of consent, prevent majority factions, and let the president make their own verdicts for the country, we will all be better
There were characteristics like his appearance, intelligence, and thoughts. He considered it a curse that he was different from others, because it was against the law to think individual thoughts, or be superior to others (Anthem, pg.1). Though he could tell he was a lot different from others, because they tend not to take risks, or fear discoveries of the world. For example, when Equality 7-2521 and International 4-8818 discovers the tunnel, International says “The will of the Council is above all things, for it is the will of our brothers, which is holy. But if you wish it so, we shall obey you.
As an American, and a human service professional, my primary job is to address the hypocrisy and moral corruption and confliction of those individuals and systems who solely convey America’s constitutional banner, but neglects its moral practicality. Americans think that by making everyone equal, constitutively and legislatively, we would effortlessly develop a moral society. Morality assumes that people have advantages over others such physical wellness, as skin-pigmentation, sexual identification, autonomy from mental illness and it dictates that we do not take advantage of those who are disadvantaged. Systems and society at large should not use our differences to justify the unjustifiable: inhumanly treatment and exclusion of other humans.
Inst negotiation better? I fully understand his reply, of course negotiation is better, if you would have been willing to negotiate with them in the first place they wouldn’t have to result to these extreme measures. That’s the very reason for direct action! Nonviolent direct action creates so much crisis and tension that the community that has constantly refused to negotiate, is forced to deal with the issue. This is apparent in the way the African American in America have advocated for equal rights in the society and the need to end segregation in the society to create a platform where both the whites and the colored can work freely in the society without any cases of discrimination.
Hastings is the one who’s loyal to the royal family and he is loyal to King Edward and the prince. The difference between them is that one of them is loyal in a good way and the other one is loyal in a cruddy way.

This poster uses Ethos- to appeal to the American people. It is created based on the ethic that you do not want your country to loose the war, therefore you will not share any sensitive information. This make the person fell a duty, and responsibility to keep american citizens safe, and you as a citizen should appeal to the country 's need for a trust worthy citizen. Since an argument by definition is when some makes a statement on what they believe is right, I would have to think that this poster uses an argument to make its point across. Meaning that the government believes that the best way to win this war is to keep the American people from providing useful information to the enemy.
Lincoln 's main rhetorical appeal was the use of emotional language in using word such as dearm , best , last , and hope. Using these words to show how american needs to get back to it roots of why it was formed. To be a safe haven for people who are being persecuted not to persecute people because their look or act different from us. This also appeals you your ethos because irtt saying America’s not where it should be how can you help get it their. I agree at with this quote that at that point in time , but that were better now.

In the article Veterans Day: Never Forget Their Duty by Senator John McCain “He was not making the flag because it made Mike Christian feel better. He was making that flag because he knew how important it was for us to be able to pledge our allegiance to our flag and country.” Being an american mean having the right to stand for what you believe and having the chance to say the Pledge of allegiance. He didn 't do this powerful action in result of pleasing another soul but he did this in the appeasement of his own actions. He knows how important it to pledge your loyalty toward your beliefs.
Yes on Proposition 57 When Robert Gonzalez was 17 years old, he was charged as an adult because the public defender said his actions were an”adult-like crime”. Robert Gonzalez was the “wheel-man” during a robbery. The sentenced Mr.Gonzalez got a sentence of 20 years with 4 months. Proposition 57 is mainly for the juveniles that are getting a second chance to go to rehab and to get better. Proposition 57 is trying to get passed because there are too many people that are getting put into prisons for reasons that can be solved another way.
