Kennedy says “ask not what your country can do for you, but what you can do for your country…” this is said backwards so the Americans start thinking about the country as a whole. He wants to get the American people to help the country instead of helping themselves. Another antimetable he uses is “as not what America will do for you, but what together we can do for the freedom of man.” He wants Americans to work together to help the country as a whole. He doesn’t want them to just rely on the government to fix things. Alliteration in J.F.K’s speech helps draw attention to his points.
He argued that social development studies showed changes in their social behaviors and their interactions once in their new environment. Thus, he concluded that the new society was uniquely America. He has a very valid argument, but I believe he could have maintained the strength of his argument while also including the fact that the American people coming from British roots, the Puritans, the Royalist elites, the North Midlanders of England and the North British and Irish were still unique as a sub-culture melded together by the choice for religious and economic freedom. The pursuit to own land and accumulate wealth, and not be under the rule of the crown was first and foremost in the early colonists minds. Fisher rests his entire point of view based on the roots of the four British folkways that separated the settlers in America.
The first one is that our rights are not well enough protected. If we had a written constitution with a proper Bill of Rights, as they have in America, we would feel safer and more sure that we would be protected from governments that wish to take too much power. We have lost many of our rights in the UK and this is because we do not have a written Bill of Rights and because government and Parliament have too much uncontrolled power. Another argument is that the people of the UK would feel more patriotic and identify more with politics if there was a written and codified constitution as they have in the USA. Every American citizen knows about their constitution and they are proud of it.
Jordan Lockler ENG 101 6 September 2010 Thomas Jefferson The Declaration of Independence The Declaration of Independence is definitely one of the most important documents in the history of the United States. Drafted by Thomas Jefferson, the Declaration of Independence was America’s notice to the world of its new found freedom. It is a summary of "self-evident truths"(Jefferson) and a list of complaints against King George that set America apart from England forever. When Thomas Jefferson wrote the Declaration of Independence, he predicted the coming of great changes within the times that he lived in. The way that Jefferson set up the Declaration of Independence made the article very influential.
American President and the British Prime Minister The American and British governments are two of the most powerful in the world, and have been for multiple centuries. America is the most powerful nation in the world with the best military, followed by Britain’s. Britain is a small island, in comparison, that has seen attempted takeovers for the last 1000 years to no avail. There are some similarities in the two but the United States government is very hard to imitate because it is so strangely organized, it is one of a kind systematically. The U.S. President and the British Prime Minister are both very powerful with respect to their government, but there are fundamental systematic differences that are important to understand.
Analysing how the works of esteemed writers could have transitioned to the belief in military intervention as the answer to the Iraqi problem and supposed international threats. From this point, the foreign policy of the United States will be evaluated, both comparatively to previous administrations and to the evaluation of ‘exemplarist
And with the Independence came a new way of thinking. They were already different from their former metropolis but since the agreement all the differences, by which they decided to be an independent country, became more evident. The 4th of July, day in which the Declaration of Independence was signed, it is the most important day in American history but it is still being a reason of proud. Anyone can be proud of its origins but American people go further; two reasons can be found: their pride is because the getting out of the natives of the east of America and later they used them as slaves, or on the other hand it is because after realizing that they cannot get them out, they killed them. Moreover, they are proud of their troops, and again two possible theories apart from the best-known.
Kunstler’s argument is in order to avoid disaster in America we must rethink and reorganize the way we live our daily lives. In paragraph one Kunstler uses ethos when he writes “This is just another symptom of the delusional thinking that now grips the nation, especially among the educated and well- intentioned.” He writes this hoping he can show us that Americans brain wash themselves into thinking everything going to be alright and therefore we must rethink the way interpret problems, we as Americans cannot ignore the outside world, we must take everything into account and see how it effects our daily lives. Another point in the essay where Kunstler uses ethos is in paragraph two where he states “The public and the mainstream media misunderstands the peak oil story.” Kustler is stating that no one really understands the oil crises in America, whatever mainstream explanations are presented to us are not fully accurate. It is up to us to find out for ourselves and understand what is happening in the world around us. Therefore another way to avoid disaster in America would be to better inform ourselves and not believe everything presented to us by the mainstream media.
Castillo 2 Diversity in America not only presents a host of intimate snapshots of culture and heritage, but documents the struggles of nationalities to integrate into the “melting pot” society of America, and highlights the strength and integrity of various cultural leaders and thinkers.” http://www.worldandi.com/specialcollection/special-collection-diversity.asp. So if you don’t think that diversity in America is not very important think again because we are a country of diversity. That’s what makes America the way it is and that is the way it has always been. Even back to when America was being colonized there was diversity with Native Americans, Europeans, Mexicans, and Latin Americans. Another reason why American exceptionalism is viewed as good is because we have extremely good medical care here.
Automatically, he starts of with a voice the holds authority and shows that the matter he is going to discuss is a serious one. In paragraph 1, Fridman uses diction to establish his pathos by using “derogatory” terms such as “nerd” and “geek” to help the reader empathize with those that are looked down upon in such a way. By questioning the values of a society that scorn people that take an interest in learning, the reader has a clear view of Fridman’s opinion on this matter, that American society is churlish. Fridman’s statement and thoughts only goes to show that people have too little care for knowledge and label people that express their knowledge with insulting names. Fridman later goes on the say the even Harvard, the most “prestigious” university in America, is “rampant” with “anti-intellectualism”.
