Winston Churchill couldn’t motivate a country into war without having some logical reasoning embedded into this speech. He informs his listeners of how much the army has improved, what strategy they will be using, and a very powerful ally that they possess. He does not give any standout statistics through this speech, but they aren’t needed because he does an exceptional job at giving logical reasoning without the need to bring in numbers. “Concerning a large-scale sea invasion, the British Navy is now ready, trained, and capable of meeting it. There should be no difficulty in this, owing to our great superiority at sea", in this excerpt he tells the nation that there is nothing to worry about because we have superiority at sea.
Henry also stated in his speech to the Virginia Convention, “armed in the holy cause of liberty, and in such a country as that which we possess, are invincible by any force which our enemy can send against us. Besides, sir, we shall not fight our battles alone,” (Henry 104). Not only was Henry speaking to them to reach their emotions, but he was also reaching to motivate them as well. Henry lets them know that together they are invincible and together they can take down whatever conflict comes their way. The emotion and determination that Henry used was a great way to influence the public to go to war.
He wanted to believe that the colonist would eventually give in but that was never the case. King George III was a smart man but let his power hungry personality get in the way of his rational decision making. Killing England gives the readers insight on what was actually going on during the time of the American Revolution. Many people such as George Washington, Benjamin Franklin, and many others paved this road for us today to live in this great nation. Their hard work and sacrifice is something honorable to look at.
We have been forced into a conflict.” By pointing out past confrontations in an accurate manner, King George VI appeals to the people’s logos. If the reasoning behind his actions can be seen by his subjects, they will feel predisposed to put him in their favor and support the war effort. At the start of his reign, King George VI was doubted by many of his people, so he needed this speech to succeed to win them over. In order to achieve this, he epitomized the role of a compassionate leader during a somber time in trying to connect with his
In fact, he begins as a valiant leader only serving Duncan’s wishes to win a battle against a rebellious force. After this battle, he receives a new title which fuels his ambition and causes him to think of immoral ways to seize what he so passionately believes is his: the throne. Macbeth is then led to spin a web of lies to cover up his previous actions and ultimately becomes a deceitful tyrant. In total,, his strive for success got him very far, but it also revealed something in him that is universally human which is the desire for more power. Like Macbeth, not all of humanity is fit to serve since with great power comes incredible amounts of responsibility.
After a series of “paper wars” between the political opponents, Burr challenged Hamilton to a duel, which Hamilton accepted. According to Freeman, Hamilton accepted Burr’s challenge for a number of reasons. “In his mind, the duel; was a praiseworthy attempt to serve the common good...yet it was also an intensely personal attempt to preserve his public career. To prove to the world, and to himself, that he was a man of his word, a man of courage and principle, a leader.” (166). His explanation alone is an illustration of the sacredness of honor and the lengths politicians took to preserve their own.
I believe King’s letter had a stronger argument than Swifts because King knew what his ultimate goal was. He was swaying people to his side of supporting equality while I felt like I had to solve a puzzle to find out what Swift was trying to accomplish. I also felt like Swifts audience did not understand his satire. King truly believes what he is fighting for and with that mindset, nothing is unreachable. Swift did not believe in what he was saying, he only wanted to catch the people attention on problems he never clearly states.
He provided alternative solutions to governing, a republican government and a constitution. However, some may argue that although it was a major influence it didn’t influence everyone’s minds, the loyalists. Thomas Paine was an American patriot that understood that independence was inevitable but the ultimate question was when (source 1). Paine was a person who fought for the average person against unfair monarchy systems (source 4). He always had the people in mind.
In addition, Franklin felt it was the duty of the United States to assist their ally England and that they could not simply turn away at such a dire time. He promised that the United States would become the “arsenal of democracy”. To meet this promise, the president met Winston Churchill secretly at sea to make plans.
In his movies, Stone appears to be a forceful person who sees the world as a combat zone or a minefield, and himself as a rebel determined to triumph in the war. It is such an orientation that made him direct a film such as "JFK," which is the ultimate conspiracy film. He managed to make this film because of his sense of tranquility and security. Through these movies, it is clear that Stone is more political than most of his contemporaries and leans more to the left in his opinions (Riordan, p. 377). Nevertheless, his movies do not play like ideological criticisms but have an intrinsic energy and passion that sweep the audience along.
