Anna Eleanor Roosevelt " The Struggle for Human rights"
Transcript of Anna Eleanor Roosevelt " The Struggle for Human rights"
Anna Eleanor Roosevelt
Rhetorical devices and Propaganda
Anna Eleanor Roosevelt used various Rhetorical Devices and Propaganda to show how the United Nations is trying to enforce a Declaration to other countries to insure people's rights are not affected.
Anna Eleanor Roosevelt was wife or first lady to Franklin D. Roosevelt(Staff). During her time as first lady she was actively involved(Staff). After Franklin died she served in the United Nations where she strongly supported human rights(Staff).
Universal Declaration of Human Rights
The declaration was taken into effect on December 10, 1948 at the United Nations("Universal Declaration Of Human Rights").
The declaration was to be viewed by other countries and applied to their society's ("Universal Declaration Of Human Rights").
Pinpointing the Enemy
" the basic freedoms of speech, of the press, of religion and conscience, of assembly, of fair trial and freedom from arbitrary arrest and punishment, which a totalitarian government cannot safely give its people and which give meaning to freedom from discrimination."
" liberty, equality, fraternity-- fired the imagination of men"
" freedom of speech and a free press; freedom of religion and worship; freedom of assembly "
The constant use of freedom allows the readers to see that each one of the freedoms listed is there own and that it is theirs to do with what they want.
The use of this technique allows the reader to capture the image of ideas and thoughts spewing from man's mind.
"They love their country and have always defended it valiantly against invaders."
The use of this sentence allows the reader to see the extreme emotion the Russian's have for their country and what they will do to protect it.
If people's rights are being abused by their countries then people are not being given those basic freedoms they were born with therefore the United Nations is doing what it can through the Universal Declaration of Human Rights to insure those freedoms are protected.
"The propaganda we have witnessed in the recent past, like that we perceive in these days, seeks to impugn, to undermine, and to destroy the liberty and independence of peoples."
This sentence allows the reader to see that propaganda can affect the way people view what is happening to others around them.
"We believe in the freedom of people to make their own mistakes. We do not interfere with them and they should not interfere with others."
" totalitarian state a trade union is an instrument used by the government to enforce duties, not to assert rights."
"Our trade- unions, on the other hand, are solely the instrument of the workers themselves."
This allows the reader to understand that different governments affect the rights of people.
The effects these sentences inflict upon the reader is that our freedoms are given to us and we can decide what we are to do with our rights.
This shows the reader that Anna is saying a totalitarian government does not support people's basic rights.
" to achieve international cooperation in solving international problems of an economic , social, cultural, or humanitarian character, and in promoting and encouraging respect for human rights and for fundamental freedoms for all without distinction as to race, sex, language, or religion."
This example allows the readers to see that everything Anna mentioned was important when it came to the United Nations and the right's of the people.
