Hypocrisy: Life In The Colony Of Britain

Improved Essays
We as a colony have suffered much over great amount of time. Almost every reason we have suffered has been due to the British and their fellow loyalists who walk among us. The inflict taxes on us that make it harder to live in this already arduous colony. It takes guts, strength and will to live here unlike back in the pampered villages of England. We must maintain every penny and every square foot of land to help us succeed. I know many of you may see what I’m saying as hypocrisy, but it is not. The British and their actions everyone’s livelihood in this colony and this entire continent, my livelihood rests in the hands of the people just like yours does.

Also, we all decided to reopen the courts, and once again I can’t thank you all enough for electing me Chief Judge of it, I will serve the people as is needed. We have taken so many steps to support ourselves I feel if we do not take action everything will go to waste, and by that I mean, the money me and my fellow congressmen spent on this military, the men who died in mob action and the men who have died and might die in war, and some of the laws we have passed. This congress has voted to give slaves their freedom if the British have any say, I’m quite sure that slaves like Jeffery Brown, will never see the freedom that they were promised. Unlike the British, we care about our people, we care of the loss of property and the loss of life that might and has ensued, and we don’t want any of those to be wasted.

This became of great concern to the new settlers whom were to work as indentured servants (Murrin pgs. 59-60).

    MLK used logos in his quote to inform the people that i they are ever going to fix the problem they had better do it soon or else it may never become fixable. Some other quotes that I think he also used logos in are, “And there will neither be rest nor tranquility in America until the negro is granted his citizen rights.” (King) So they needed to fix the problem as blacks will not rest till’ they get want they need.

    The land had been passed down for many generations, and peoples’ livelihoods were attached to the land. It had been lovingly worked for many decades, and it has provided for the families which lived upon the land. It is a significant part of the people who work there, and they each depend on each other to thrive.
