1 Spoken by this guy Why does he look the same in every photo and painting?

2  Douglas MacArthur argued that the American forces should respond by widening the war into China.  Truman was like “Heck no man” (Paraphrased), and fired him.  So because of this firing Truman had to present this speech to the American people.

3  Primarily, Truman thought that MacAuthor’s actions may lead to World War III  “The best time to meet the threat is in the beginning. It is easier to put out a fire in the beginning when it is small than after it has become a roaring blaze.” (Truman, his speech)

4  This  And mostly this

5  Well as many know Communism was pretty scary stuff back then. Many people were afraid of Communism spreading.  “ability of the whole free world to resist Communist aggression has been greatly improved. “ (Truman)  ^ Primary reason Truman fired MacAuthor and did the speech.

6  Invention  Arrangement  Style  Memory  Delivery

7  "discovering the best available means of persuasion.“ (Artistotle)  Truman capitalized on the threat of global Communism and World War III  Fear is persuasion, this is how terrorist get what they want (not to say Truman is a terrorist…)

8  Order of speech.  Ethos first, ethics, how we don’t want to be communist, no world war. We not like that.  Logos, logic, second, if we get involved in different ways we risk bigger war.  Pathos, emotions, “we know that we are following the great principles of peace, freedom, and justice.” (Truman)

9  “How the speech is said”  Speech revolves around insisting it’s for the good of the country, not just because of conflicting interests.  It’s not about MacAuthor, it’s about us.

10  Several long term effects came from this speech and the actions before it.  Great speech by MacArthur  On-going war in Korea.  Possible prevention of World War III

11  Is what Truman did right?  Would it of been better if done differently?  Did the speech actually apply to Logos, Ethos, and Pathos effectively? Reflects on Style.
