Drone Regulation Analysis

Improved Essays
The scenario I chose to do my speech on is the Drone Regulation. My thesis I decided to use is, “Drones should be legalized in the United States.” This topic I showed the most interest in, and I believe that I have a good thesis statement. One concept from Rothwell in Chapter 15 is that it states, “Highlighting similarities in positions, values, and attitudes also encourages identification (451).” My thesis will show similarity between some people and they will agree with me.

According Rothwell, “a general purpose identifies the overall goal of your speech” (352). Rothwell is just trying to say that a general purpose is what you are trying to make the listeners get out of the speech. His general purpose was to get everyone fired up and realize that being successful is your job and yours only. At the end of the speech it just made me want to get up and go do something memorable with my life because I want myself to be a successful person. The second concept that spoke out to me is the motivating emotional appeal. Motivating emotional appeal is said to be, “Appeals to sadness, pride, honor, hope, joy, guilt, envy, and shame” (454). This is saying that all of those words will provide an emotional motivation making you want to overcome that feeling. The speaker did that very well in his presentation. He had stories about him overcoming so many hardships and as an individual you can picture what he had to go

    Existential theory is a theory which in my opinion you need an open heart and mind to be able to fully understand. Existential theory concepts are great and many of the aspects of this theory I agree with. When looking into this theory the main aspect that I appreciated was that a lot of the values were the same as the ones I have. According to our textbook, the existential tradition definition is seeking a balance between recognizing the limits and tragic dimensions of human existence on one hand and the possibilities of human life on the other hand. (Corey, 2009, p. 145) I like this statement because it shows that you can grow off of your problems.…

    I enjoyed hearing about different perspectives on details that I didn’t think about before. I always tried to implement the feedback that I received from all my sources, I understood that it only made myself and my writing better.
