Transcript of We Choose To Go To The Moon

John F. Kennedy We Choose to go to the Moon John F. Kennedy wrote this speech to inform people that they have decided to send astronauts to the moon and to advise people of the possible outcomes. He explains the statistics and previous outcomes of this mission and how it will effect the future of society and education. Inform Purpose John F. Kennedy is explaining how their choice to go to the moon will effect society. According to this Kennedy, this mission to the moon would have a huge effect on education and technology that would have a extensive effect on the world. Occasion Deliberative "The growth of our science and education will be enriched by new knowledge of our universe and environment, by new techniques of learning and mapping and observation, by new tools and computers for industry, medicine, the home as well as the school. Technical institutions, such as Rice, will reap the harvest of these gains." John F. Kennedy specifies the outcome of the idea of going to the moon. He provides evidence of his prediction and their previous outcomes. Kennedy states that this decision's advantages have overruled it's disadvantages, and that there are so many more things to be discovered. Kind Evaluation "Because there is new knowledge to be gained, and new rights to be won, and they must be won and used for the progress of all people. For space science, like nuclear science and all technology, has no conscience of its own." "We have had our failures, but so have others, even if they do not admit them. And they may be less public." John F. Kennedy states the similar experiences that society has overcome and that choosing to go to the moon is a beneficial experience for society. It is the people's responsibility to improve education and knowledge, and this choice would help that. Audience Cultural, Geographical, Social & Economic Experiences "We mean to be a part of it–we mean to lead it. For the eyes of the world now look into space, to the moon and to the planets beyond, and we have vowed that we shall not see it governed by a hostile flag of conquest, but by a banner of freedom and peace." John F. Kennedy is very enthusiastic and determined about this choice. He truly believes it would be a good idea to go to the moon and it would benefit everyone, and he does not intend on changing his mind. He's so committed to this decision that he is trying to make everyone agree with him and he won't take no for an answer. Tone Attitude "But we do not intend to stay behind, and in this decade, we shall make up and move ahead." "But it will be done. And it will be done before the end of this decade." Devices "We choose to go to the moon. We choose to go to the moon in this decade and do the other things, not because they are easy, but because they are hard" "Many years ago the great British explorer George Mallory, who was to die on Mount Everest, was asked why did he want to climb it. He said, 'Because it is there.'" Allusion The literary device Allusion is effective in this quote because John F. Kennedy is referring to a mountain climber George Mallory. Kennedy uses Mallory as a reference because it shows that he wanted to explore the un-explored, and because he did it improved knowledge of mankind. Rhetorical Question "But why, some say, the moon?" John F. Kennedy uses this rhetorical device to get the audience to think why not go to the moon? Yes it may have expenses but in return it's very favorable for the science world. This device is very effective because it gets people thinking about his decision. Climax "Create new ills as it dispels old, new ignorance, new problems, new dangers." The rhetorical device climax is effective in this quote because it shows extra emphasis on the point that John F. Kennedy is trying to get across.Kennedy is explaining the effects of the decision to go to the moon and is making sure that people understand that with success comes dangers. Balance "Surely the opening vistas of space promise high costs and hardship, as well as high reward." The literary device balance is effective in this quote because it compares the two outcomes of the decision, expensive yet gainful. It is left up to the people what is more important, money or knowledge and education. Repetition "The first waves of the industrial revolution, the first waves of modern invention, and the first wave of nuclear power." This quote shows repetition by repeating the the words "first wave". By repeating these words he shows emphasize and dramatize to the point. John F. Kennedy is emphasizing the point of the benefits of this decision of going to the moon, including industrial revolution, modern invention and nuclear power. Position "Causing heat about half that of the temperature of the sun- almost as hot as it is here today- and do all this, and do it right, and do it first before this decade is out- then we must be bold. This quote from John F. Kennedy's speech shows position by adding hyphens and a lot of commas in the sentence. By putting hyphens into this sentence he can add additional information that people can relate to more. And by adding commas Kennedy also adds more emphasize and information to the sentence.
