To me, this quote was extremely sarcastic because Henry wants revolution, but he almost seems to be blaming it on the Americans. Its almost like he is saying that it is too late to turn back, and that they will either have to fight back to the British or allow themselves to be under a tyranny again. To make his argument stand out, Henry alludes to the Bible. "Suffer not yourselves to be betrayed with a kiss....Let us not deceive ourselves, sir." - Paragraph 2.
Why not achieve the goals and desires you have in life immediately, instead of letting things play out on their own? Let’s say the technology is out currently and everyone has the choice to make. Surely everyone wouldn’t jump inside dream land all at once. For the ones that do they will be living out the life they have always wanted and the ones that don’t they will be striving to make things work out perfectly in life. Of course most of the people outside will fail at their lives dreams because of normal reasons like financial or mental blocks.
He believes that the purposes of these societal norms are only present to get rid of each person’s inner intuition. Just because a man’s feeling in his heart does not conform with the rest of society does not mean he is in the wrong. “Under the domination of an idea, which possesses the minds of multitudes, as civil freedom, or the religious sentiment, the powers of persons are no longer subjects of calculation (Emerson, 352).” It is impossible to say concretely whether the politics of the United States, including its citizens, are all about “me”, but there are many ideas and theories as to whether this is truthful. These various authors displayed their opinions and sentiments throughout history, all which to be debated for generations to
People would not get to have a say in anything, and would be frustrated on how things are going in the government. During the 1880’s the U.S did achieve its ideals of democracy, and in the late 1920’s America did not achieve its ideals of democracy. It is important to analyze how undemocratic the US has been because people may not know much about the US and may think that it is better but it may be not, because we have some times in history where things have not been democratic. We should analyze the history of the US so that we can see how the US have become better, or worse during the past years. My knowledge of US history can help me become a better leader because I already know the mistakes America did already, so I wouldn’t make them again, instead I would be even
What is more, Mr. Nixon spends more than half the ad explicitly telling the American people how Civil Rights is necessary for the fight against communism: Why must we vigorously defend them [Civil Rights]? First, because it is right and just. And second, because we cannot compete successfully against communism if we fail to utilize completely the minds and energy of all our citizens. And third, the whole world is watching us. When we fail to grant equality to all, that makes news – bad news – for America all over the world.
It is a sad truth that should be addressed immediately because without listening to others you ultimately are showing that you do not care about them or what is going on in their life, thus distancing yourself from them. Americans must work on listening to others and avoid being self absorbed, by achieving this we will have a country that is open to growth and open to the ideas of
Shubhi Tangri 1st Period 1/24/12 AMERICAN REVOLUTION: LETTER TO THE EDITOR. We are a mistaken people. They think we care about something as petty as money. They think we have too much pride. They think they can oppress us because they are strong and we are weak.
This might also potentially hurt the votes of the candidates running for office. However some people don’t mind, and they strongly are for the English Unity Act that they will take drastic measures to get their message across. For example, the Representative of Iowa went as far to sue his own state because they posted information on his website in languages other than English. “He claimed this violated the new English law , demonstrating that it is the job of the government to meddle with the lives of the citizens and limit their individual choices.” I believe this shows an attitude of arrogance, it gives off the wrong message. New citizens should not be deprived of things, especially if they are trying their best to learn the English
Just because someone is different, and going against "god's will," they can not have the same basic rights as everyone else. I believe the government is just trying to make the majority of the United States happy. I also believe they are letting their own religious beliefs get in the way. This needs to stop. We need to stop being so stubborn, and realize this injustice.
This shows that when the country is all set and done with what they were doing that it will just hurt the morale of them. This argument could be differential to some, but they have to think that not only could it stop and possibly save countries but it could also save lives of many people. Therefore using torture does not help the cause in the world to this day; it will only keep destroying countries all
