The goal of the 415 BCE play, The Trojan Women was to discourage war in the ancient Mediterranean world. The play showed the hardships that came with war in an attempt to end violent conflict. The same can be said about the 1971 film. The cinematized version of the play was released amidst the peak of Vietnam protest and aimed to show, yet again, the consequences of war. The film is one of the more interesting war films because its main characters are not the soldiers, but the people affected by the loss that war brought them.
Roosevelt states, “...the tempo of modern warfare could bring into our very midst the physical attack which we must eventually expect if the dictator nations win this war” (15). Roosevelt says this in the way he did because at this point in time he didn’t want to physical fight but he knows if the country needs to we will. Roosevelt knows that wars do not solve the problem which is why he simply wanted to aid countries and not physically fight with them, causing the loss of many lives. Roosevelt had four basic freedoms that he wanted to be conserved and saved. Roosevelt believes that freedom is being able to express yourself in the ways you believe and what you believe in.
The “Speech to the Second Virginia Convention”, was meant to persuade the American people that the British could not be reasoned with, and, therefore a war with the British was inevitable. This speech was a call to action, as Patrick Henry felt that Americans could no longer sit idly as a war began in the north. For Henry would rather have death than live without liberty. Henry spoke honestly in an attempt to gain followers that would join him in the war against Britain. In Patrick Henry’s “Speech to the Second Virginia Convention”, used figures of speech, metaphors and similes, and rhetorical questions to persuade his audience to agree with his views on the war and the conditions of America.
Where this argument ends; however, is on the question of people should help in a crisis? Whereas, some are convinced that we shouldn’t have the law because it society responsibility to help others. Others maintain that we should have the law because it will bring kindness to our world. We should care about our society enforcing laws regarding good Samaritans because our society is more violent as of late and has caused the loss of human life. Imagine if our society has this type of law and how different our society would be from what we see today.
This propaganda influenced people. It influenced people in mainly two different ways. The first way was to hate the enemy. By thinking of the enemy as a threat people get motivated to go and fight them by joining the war. If you tell people to go to the war in a friendly manner or basically have a mother figure telling them to go to war, it kind of tells them to listen to their mother, go fight in WW1.
During this time we will stand against their fascist ideas and not react to their terrorism. We will not give in to their fearful tactics. We will not let them cripple us and have us running away because we are scared. We are faced with the looming question: who will unite with us to stop Germany from this reign of terror? Much like you, I had the privilege to be close with a few of the 40,000 who passed during this horrific event.
Several people from different walks of life have extended their own opinions on just and unjust wars. Defencists argue the need to engage in war as an act of defense when there is a threat, such as facing a country what initiated a violent war, overthrowing a cruel and oppressive government, and protecting its people against an invader; the Realists’ belief is similar to those of the Defencists, but that war is said to be just when your moral standards call for it (Orend, 2009). For instance, fighting against the US government after it overthrew your previous dictator, but then proceeded to use Phosphorus shells on civilian targets. As a Realist soldier ordered by the US government to participate in this war, you would call for the right to
By comparing herself to a soldier, she is comparing her actions to those of a soldier at wartime. This consequently makes her somewhat radical behaviors seem less extreme, alike how soldiers are pardoned for their actions on the battlefield. Wars have always been dire and of utmost importance to the public, so when Pankhurst calls the suffragette movement a civil war, she is bringing a sense of urgency to the
This problem really helps me come of age understanding it is not right to use violence when defending family. You will have to pay the consequences. The author really used the conflict between Finch and Scout to see that many people use violence to stop people from insulting their family’s honor. In this passage, the literary elements of character, conflict, and motif develop the theme of people often defend their family’s honor through violence. In the book To Kill a Mockingbird, Harper Lee uses an interesting conflict to help find the theme.
complications like surgery medical test medical examinations training may have effects on war itself in my opinion I think the president was looking out for military benefits the president looks at it as transgender people holding the military down from creating progress and growing. the president did have many reasons for why what morally it 's wrong to deny people of the United States citizens themselves the right to 5 for the country the right to protect the one they love denying these people rights to enlist in the army is like taken away they 're taking away their dignity and responsibilities as
Government officials knew that citizens were unable to withstand the gruesome photos taken of the realities of the war. Showing real images that featured the outcomes of war would have caused Americans to become disheartened thus decreasing American morale. To insure victory, the government enforced the use of censorship throughout the nation. In one propaganda poster, the caption reads “Let’s Censor Our Conversation About the War” (“Censored”). The propaganda poster revealed the extent of which the government kept a eye and ear to all American citizens as an attempt to preserve American loyalty.
When talking about war, there are many books with few answers to what war truly is. Barbara Ehrenreich brings forth not only the possibilities towards understanding war but also the passion people from history have had towards it. One key issue she brings to light is humanities love for war, so much so that people would use excuses like holy wars to justify their need to fight in a war. She declares that war is as muddled as the issue of diseases and where diseases came from around 200 years ago. More so than that she even goes further on to state that these rituals that date back to prehistoric times are the cause of human nature during times of war rather than human instinct.
