The fresher metaphors are the ones he uses when he’s speaking about the future of the United States. These metaphors make his speech adaptable to many audiences. 4) Some words in the speech seem archaic or old-fashioned, some examples of these words would be “foe”, “solemn oath”, “asunder”, and “forebears”. These words not only make Kennedy sound more experienced and wise, but they also make the speech sound more formal and trustworthy. Syntax 1) Kennedy used these short paragraphs because they offer natural pauses so his audience can process and reflect about his main points.
The people that Shelton killed are considered combatants because they support they governmental system and work with it. Based on Just War Theory, the proportionality of killing these people is that their deaths are outweighed by the justice that will bring to the judicial system. Shelton believes the system to be corrupt, focusing instead on conviction rates rather than making sure the right person is placed behind bars. By killing these people Shelton can put a new mindset into the “system” because those affected by the killings will want the right man punished rather since they now know how it feels to be wronged. All the killings made by Shelton were to people who were directly showed how flawed the system was.
He tries to appeal to the readers’ emotion whenever he can. He uses information that appeals to himself and other readers as opposed to Bruck’s essay. In contrast, in “No Death Penalty” written by Bruck, it seems that the majority of the essay was just quotes and cold hard facts that Bruck found before writing. He quotes Koch several times and tries to convince the reader that Koch’s information is incorrect. Overall, I am more convinced by Koch’s essay than Bruck’s essay just because it appeals to me on a more emotional level, and causes me to want to keep the death penalty.
I do also believe that it would be a gateway for law enforcement to be able to exploit people more often and pick on them because of something on their record. There are a lot of positive things that would come form the ID cards but I think that the cons out weigh the pros for me. So therefore I believe that for me William Safire made a better argument. In Safire’s essay, he explains to us that with
He also ask “shall we gather strength by irresolution and inaction?...are fleets and armies necessary to a work go love and reconciliation?” Henry asks these questions hoping to elicit strong emotions in the audience that work them in favor of his argument. Henry also used allusions to help the reader visualize what’s happening by evoking a mental picture for example when he says “listen to the song of that siren till she transforms us into beast” he is metaphorically comparing how the British are saying things to the colonist which are promising false hope to how the circle in Homer’s Odyssey
On April 16, 1963, from the jail of Birmingham, Martin Luther King, wrote a letter from Birmingham jail to eight clergymen who had attacked his work for civil rights in a public statement released on April 12, 1963. This particular text was initiated due to the non-violent demonstrations in Birmingham, Alabama, which led to the arrest of many African-Americans, including King himself. Even though this was not a speech document, the letter was directed to several targeted audiences: first, the clergymen who wrote “A Call for Unity,” secondly, the “white moderate”, and finally, to black men and women across the nation who lacked the initial courage to fight for their rights. King wanted to convince them of the utility of his commitment in this
Martin Luther King, one of the most well known civil rights leaders in America, believed that some laws during his lifetime were unjust in nature and were acceptable to ignore based on ones conscience. Henry David Thoreau also believed that unjust laws were to be resisted or ignored. While Thoreau was the first American to define and use civil disobedience as a means of protest, King expanded upon it in his letter from Birmingham jail, implementing nonviolence and practical application into the traditional American protest. Henry David Thoreau believed that, “That government is best, which governs least.” Also, while Thoreau had wished for no government, he acknowledged the fact that it was logically impossible and that the government only exists because the people allow it to exist; Thoreau states, “The government does not keep the country free. It does not settle the west.
Martin Luther King Jr. wrote "Letter from Birmingham Jail" on April 16, 1963 to express his views against unjust laws, which discriminated against him others. In the beginning King explains that he is in jail and is taking in the things he has been criticized for. At the time King was extremely aggravated by the way the church, especially the white clergy who was not in support of the religious civil rights movement. He wrote this letter as a response to the church’s separation of holy and worldly matters concerning his cause. The letter then talks about why King was in Birmingham.
This essay will explain and analyze two essays by individuals who express entirely different opinions of civil disobedience. In his essay, “Civil Disobedience: Destroyer of Democracy”, Lewis H. Van Dusen strongly discourages the use of civil disobedience as a means for change. He feels that this act of disobedience directly contradicts our democratic system. The other individual being compared in this essay is Henry David Thoreau; who in his essay, “Civil Disobedience”, supports the act of peacefully challenging or protesting unjust laws. He impugns us to do what is morally right, and to not be afraid to take a stand against injustice.
