For example, the first book which was on this subject was made by Bill Kaysing who he himself published was called ‘’We never went to the Moon: America’s Thirty Billion Dollar Swindle’’. It was released in 1974 which was just after two Apollo missions were succeeded. This is one of the mass public medias that made people believed that it was an hoax. Another example which reinforced this idea is a film called Capricorn One. This movie is about a mission similar to the Apollo’s where several astronauts are ready to take off to space, but there was a problem with the rocket so they had to fake it to make the public believe.
A college education is about giving oneself the ability to have control over their life. David Foster Wallace speaks volumes to this point, as the true value of education lies not in the obvious benefits but rather in the deep seeded experiences that a student takes away with them and culminates in the form of tangible skills that can be utilized in real life. Commencement speeches tend to be motivational, celebratory, and inspirational, Although David Foster Wallace embodied these three subcategories in some capacity in his commencement speech at Kenyon College; he did so by presenting the graduating students with a piece of wisdom that they could use as they moved into their professional lives. David Foster Wallace informed the young
His speech reached the people, and made them listen. It makes you believe what he says because of the way he presents it and it does its job. The speech is a persuasive one to make the population see the charges in a new way and understand what the money in question was used for. He gives them information to change their opinions on the matter which is exactly what a persuasive speech is designed to do. Nixon begins his speech by stating that he will not lie, or deny the charge brought against him without going into specific detail.
For example, after “Let the word…passed to a new generation”, Clarke adds that his words actually appeared to be going forth into the exhilarating air. Thus allowing the reader to create a stronger image of the actual speech, and President Kennedy himself. Throughout his writing Clarke, intelligently, quotes Kennedy at least once on every other paragraph, not giving too many quotes but suffices to feed the reader with enough information on Kennedy’s manner of speech. To top it all off, Clarke also quotes other presidents that try to quote Kennedy in their own way. Bush’s translation of Kennedy’s “Ask not what your country can do for you-ask what you can do for your country”(Brooks 299) into “What you do is as important as anything government does.
September 4, 2013 A Loss of Interest Charles Krauthammer expresses his disappointment for American’s loos of interest in moon exploration in his Washington Post article, “The Moon We Left Behind”. This essay is very informative, and fairly persuasive; Krauthammer keeps it entertaining by adding his own opinions and insights. Krauthammer’s main idea is how America has essentially abandoned the Earth’s largest satellite since our original obsession with it, brought on by President Kennedy. If we ever hope to discover any new information about the moon, or our solar system, we will have to send someone into space once again. Krauthammer sets an informative and persuasive tone by his use of numbers and dates.
A More Perfect Union Critique “We the people, in order to form a more perfect union.” These are the same words that were presented in the Constitution as well as used in Barack Obama’s speech, “A More Perfect Union” during his presidential primary campaign in 2008. His speech addresses the racism and inequality that still exist in America that is dividing American society instead of uniting it. Obama uses his own experiences to reach out to readers as well as using allusions from history and the patriotic meaning behind the history to incorporate pathos and ethos in his speech. Obama is successful in his writing because he is able to persuade the audience by appealing to their emotions, while using specific details to create more credibility
Although, Kennedy gets his audience, Americans, engaged through antithesis, “Support any friend, oppose any foe to assure the survival and the success of liberty.” Kennedy switched up the words in his speech to get the audience thinking positively about supporting those who want the help of the United States. Kennedy then goes to a different side of his plans; explaining that the countries that get our help will be the ones who side with the U.S. in our American ideals. Thus, supporting his purpose further by stating two opposite ideas in one antithesis statement. By Kennedy doing this, he creates a strong engagement with the U.S. citizens because his main purpose is to branch out to other countries, but at the same time he said he wouldn’t let other countries stand in the way of helping those who truly want the help. Another strong motive of Kennedy is his concern with improving America further.
The Man on the Moon In 1969 Neil Armstrong became the first man to ever walk on the moon. As he took his first steps he said, “Thats one small step for man but one giant step for man kind.” Neil Armstrong was right when he said that.

The purpose of the first text, Man Takes First Steps on the Moon, is to inform the audience about the importance of Neil Armstrong and Edwin Aldrin landing on the moon and discovering greater things than what you can ind on earth.
John F. Kennedy’s “Civil Rights Address” "We preach freedom around the world…that this is the land of the free except for the Negroes."

He said that the university should be place for all to have "equal chance to develop their talents." Kennedy's speech consisted of specific issues affecting the nation and its foundation of freedom.
