Essay 1 (Rhetorical Analysis Essay) The article which I want to introduce is “Why I could never hate America”. From my opinion this is a good article. Before I introduce the article I want introduce the author of this article. The author’s name is Mehdi Hasan, who is political editor of the Huffington Post UK and the presenter of Al-Jazeera English’s The Café. He was a senior editor at the New Statesman and a news and current affairs editor at Channel 4 from 2009-12. He is the co-author of Ed: the Milibands and the Making of a Labor Leader. (HASAN, MEHDI, 04 Feb. 2013). The article is wrote about the author who married an American girl so he need go to America frequently. There are a lot of troubles when he gets in America. Although coming to the United States he had a lot of troubles, he still cannot hate the United States. That is because just like he said in the article, he loved one person from the United Stated. This article’s type is personal views.
This is a good article for me. As I am a foreign students from China, I will also face this situation when I finish my holiday with my family in China and get back, the officer will ask me a lot of questions, just like the author said which is very inconvenient. However America is the strongest country in the world, I also could never hate America. For now except the United States has lots of shootings, I feel it is a very good country for people to live, study, and work. Because the environment in the United States is pretty good, we can always see the blue sky and the lots of forest around us; the high tech-knowledge of computer, medical, IT; and there are a lot of opportunities for people to find a good job because there are a lot of International companies in America. And there are the last but not least thing can prove America is a good country that let me could never hate, is that in the United Stated we can get good education, that is the reason

    Anti-Americanism is a feeling of hatred toward America, its culture and its people. It is caused by several things. However, contrary to popular belief, Anti-Americanism has nothing to do with America’s foreign relations. It is, however, caused by resentment against America. People from outside countries start to think and believe that Americans are not professionals. They also begin to believe that Americans are too materialistic and spiritual. They think this only because we are different from them. This is why they resent us; they are not envious of us. Also, the main purpose of language is not to convey thoughts, but to conceal them. Anti-Americanism causes us to be called “Great Satan”, primarily because we are tempting. We are also considered…

    In other words, he has experienced America’s penchant to intoxicate him with American exceptionalism. But, over time, this same American exceptionalism sobered him, and his soberness is evidenced by the following: I had always thought of America as a nation that looked forward; for the first time I was struck by its determination to look back” (Hamid 115). Whilst some may view his critical statements of America as hateful anti-American statements, I would postulate that his statements are actually pro-American and abounds with love. Whilst Changez recounts the events of his life, we get a sense of Changez’ appreciation for the promise America gave him, from receiving a tier one education at Princeton University, to becoming an analyst at Underwood Samson and enjoying a love with Erica; it was in America that he could enjoy the freedoms that were not necessarily available to him in Pakistan. So, when Changez criticizes America, he does not seek to deprecate and demonize America to spite her. Furthermore, his criticisms of the shortcomings of America doesn’t mean that he is anti-American. In actuality, it is through his admonitions of America, that he shows his love and devotion to America because he wants America to be a better version of…

    Several factors influence perception of international relations. Varying in every individual, as a result of childhood experiences, are beliefs, dispositions, and basic psychological needs. Contradictory to what some may think, all Americans as well as Chinese are not united in their opinions. An American who grew up in an inner city, lower class neighborhood, rose by a single parent, deficient of sufficient capital resources, positive influences and education, may have different psychological needs, drives, and dispositions than an American who grew up in a typical middle class neighborhood, raised by two parents, and who attended a private school. The difference between these two upbringings, results with two people with different perceptual predispositions and opinions. However, Americans are generally all exposed to similar stimulus that emits American cultural and behavioral beliefs. This aspect applies to the Chinese and their cultural beliefs as well. Occupational position and community roles are other aspects of individuals that influence their perception of international relations.…

    In the 4th chapter Social construction of serial murders the author in my opinion is trying to show the reader how murders social lives and social behavior may have led them or created them into becoming killers. He is identifying how social construction relates to the process of becoming a serial murderer. I see the way he goes through all forms of social life from childhood difficulties to teenage problems and into the adult years. He seems to focus a lot more on childhood problems like sexual abuse and emotional abuse that lead to them lashing out for attention to them becoming killers as they grow older.…

    The author begins with famous quote lines as a clear example of “American exceptionalism” and the idealistic descriptions of the United States, especially over the last two centuries. As the author notes how American exceptionalism is similar to other nations that claimed exceptionalism as well. He clears out there are no differences between them when it comes to their self-assertion conduct, many which resulted in a righteous attitude that leads them to think they are positive role models to the world. A believe that makes the Americans with their privileges and unique qualities to think they are superior than others, when in fact they are no less different.…
