Seminal U.S. documents essential question project
How do seminal U.S. documents reflect the beliefs of the people and the foundations of American society?
Seminal U.S. documents reflect the beliefs of people because a good motivational speaker like MLK or JFK could change anyone's opinion especially a persons opinion that's for a good cause.
JFK uses rhetoric to appeal to the common person. He states "that we can solve the worlds problems only as one if we work together". He also states "that the U.S is not afraid of no one and they will do whatever it takes to stay as the master of their domain" this makes the crowd happy to be Americans. MLK uses phrases like all man are created equal and I have a dream to make his points and persuade the people that what he wants is the same thing they want.
U.S. seminal documents reflect the foundations of American society because they get people to do something or believe in a movement that changes way of life and how people think and act.
In MLK's speech he gets people to follow and listen to him and this later leads to a movement which makes African Americans equal U.S. citizens which again changes their way of life. In JFK's speech he get everyone together and tells them he will do his job to keep us as the leader of democracy and keep us as they great nation we are and this changes people opinions of him and they trust him more and put their faith in him.
