I have studied a lot about Greeks due to me being a actor. I studied a lot of plays and literature and was very fond of their work.
One thing about this semester that was different from the others was the difficulty of the work revolving this topic. I was always good at the art aspect of it, but not the reason or philosophy in this category.
They teach us a lot about wisdom “Sophia” and a lot about how it plays a role in becoming successful. One huge part of this that I found interesting was rhetoric.
Many people consider rhetoric to be something awful or something devastating when in fact it’s a certain type of speech making.
This revolves around being able to lie and persuade someone into believing what you’re saying or posting about is true.
We seen many forms of this such as fake news, cat fishing, trolling, and many more.
One thing is that the philosophers of their day did, was make the blue print for becoming a efficient and effective liar. They actually encouraged and help make many others throughout our times.
Now rhetoric in its self isn’t truly lying or trying to trick people, but more of camouflaging and using whit’s to deliver your message. Rhetoric is more of being clever and having style in how you make your point true or not.
Our day of age we use this more to manipulate and control conversations. We can use this to trick people or get them to believe almost anything.
One master of rhetoric is Donald Trump the 45th president of the united states. Donald Trump had ways of making speeches during his campaign which using lies won over majority of the country.
Most of the things he mention was all either made up or misinformed. Because he was a master of rhetoric, he would be able to come off as genuine to the majority of his supporters.
His rhetoric about the wall and immigrants coming from Mexico was one form of false rhetoric. Most stats point most immigrants come from Canada.
There were also the founding fathers of rhetoric. In Greece they had philosophers who were masters of this.
They also professionally taught this for cash and took on a lot of students. They taught many forms of rhetoric that we use today.
They also can use ethos pathos and logos as a form of rhetoric, so you can make yourself seem authentic and win over anyone. These tactics and form of rhetoric encourage many liars to come in the future.
One very great liar I would say who learn from rhetoric is Makaveli Justine. He was a master of rhetoric and taught you how to do so to get far in life.
He has inspired many people such as Tupac Shakur, many politicians and other famous people. He is a inspiration to all shady people everywhere and a rock star to manipulators.
Who we tend to use rhetoric on? We usually use it on large crowds of any sort to get a point across.
We target those who are willing to listen and easy to influence. Those who want to see a future change for a certain action.
What can rhetoric do? It can cause a quick change of opinion on a subject. If we talk about a sensitive subject and use it around that time, it can change the whole topic to favor the talkers side.
It can have long term effects depending on who it is. It shown on TV all the time on how rhetoric can have a long term effect.
Where can rhetoric be used? Almost about anywhere it can be used. Its more effective where there is a large group of people around.
In court rooms, classrooms, stadiums or even gathering rooms, rhetoric has been shown to be more effective in mass gathering areas. These places make the best areas due to the amount of people and conversations that can happen.
When is the best time to use rhetoric? The best time is when people are at their most emotional states.
It’s been proven rhetoric is more effective when big events happen. When a law or a accident happens, people are in their most emotional state.
We tend to not make great decisions when we are upset or in our feelings. We are left vulnerable to many type of things and can be more influence in a state like this.
We seen on TV how trump would use the country state of being, as a means to use rhetoric to influence people to support him. To say if they choose him he will fix their issues.
Also with big incidents such as a school shooting. We seen how most would use rhetoric to either support the idea of bans for guns or go against it.
The arguments can go either way, but its proven that rhetoric is more effective during big events.
Why people tend to go with rhetoric as a means to get what they want? Majority of people will never listen or pay attention when something good.
We have a tendency to promote bad over good, which in fact makes rhetoric the best option to get people’s attention. If there is a goal to get something done or accomplished rhetoric is the best option.
It will not only bait people to listen to the topic, but force a discussion on it. This is why we have world wide discussions on certain topics.
How rhetoric effects us? Rhetoric can have a short term and long term effect on our life’s.
Rhetoric has the effect of getting people to have discussions on topics that will affect their life’s. It also has the effect to get a law pass or taken down.
It can also cause destruction as rumors or talks of rhetoric can do a lot of social damage. We learn from past users of it that it has big effects on our life’s.
Rhetoric is one of the biggest means to get any point across. It can be used to spark a conversation and a discussion of any sort.
Rhetoric I feel is one of the best means to start a conversation. Also a proven tactic to get people to listen.
