Storyboard Text

  • Ethos
  • Prudence, indeed, will dictate that Governments long established should not be changed for light and transient causes
  • Logos
  • For cutting off our Trade with all parts of the world:For imposing Taxes on us without our Consent:For depriving us in many cases, of the benefits of Trial by Jury.
  • Pathos
  • He [The King] has plundered our seas, ravaged our Coasts, burnt our towns, and destroyed the lives of our people.
  • This is a use of Ethos, the appeal to credibility and character, because they are conveying that had they would not be declaring independence if they were just mildly annoyed by Britain.
  • This is a use of Logos, because thinking about things logically, those are all bad things. Logically, it would not be fair to cut people off and deny them a fair trial, while also imposing heavy taxes on them.
  • This is a use of Pathos because of the wording. The way it is written puts across a strong emotional charge, especially the words "destroyed the lives of our people."
