Hypocrisy in Ads (SMORE 5)
Hypocrisy is written all over advertising. A lot of advertisements has little parts in them where you can clearly see hypocrisy. Many are about women and how they were usually treated but then it takes a twist to show that women aren’t like how they used to be. In other ads it’s about the male role, it shows that some males are less dominant than how they are usually portrayed in the older days in society. It’s all about the companies buying the ad time and how they want to capture the attention of the target audience. While some ads decide to target their hypocrisy on the male role more than the female role while other companies do the opposite. Many of the hypocrisy don’t offend many people now, the women feel overpowered and the men couldn’t really care about the ad Many of the hypocrisy comes from ads that usually portray something about the male or female role. Let’s take a valentines day’s ad because tomorrow is valentine, the female role are usually very happy about what their male partner is going to get them. Usually for the male role in these types of events make them usually uncomfortable. While there is a lot more hypocrisy in the ads then what is said, it’s everywhere and we see it all the time.

Freedom of Privacy (SMORE 7)
“To assure our country’s freedom, the government should be able to spy on its citizens”. When you tell a friend or a parent if they agree with this they would usually automatically say no they don’t. And I would too. To say that the government has total access on what its citizens do is a violation of our freedom. Every living person loves their freedom and everybody should have it. To assure our country’s freedom , the government should be able to spy on its citizens is a total violation of freedom. The act of them spying contradicts with the freedom of privacy. It’s our right to have our privacy. That’s why we have fences that why we have passwords we don’t share with other people. We love our privacy and we love to keep things private. We really wouldn’t like if the government would go through our things without our consent first. Even if many others will argue that the governments do it for our safety, the act contradicts with the freedom laws. But also the government does not need to spy on its citizens because they don’t need to know anything more about its citizens to protect them. The government can spy on us but it won’t distort our freedom (except privacy) but it will have an effect on our pursuit of happiness. Also you can think of it as the government is only good as its citizens, but also it can also mean that the country itself is not a free country. It just all depends on the situation itself.

Ain't Rebellion (SMORE 9)
These rebellions were so powerful because of the amount of effect it left on their countries. The amount of people that were involved in it and if either the military or gunfire was involve in the revolution. In some occasions it was because of the people themselves. In some occasions what one person that was part of the rebellion did. For example Rosa Parks standing up to the white man that wanted her seat that was in the “blacks only” section of the bus. She was only one person and yet she made a big effect on the rebellion for everybody else. It made them want to stand up more and take what was right for a human being no matter what color. Many people are inspired by the act in many ways and for many reasons. Some is because they know the injustice taking place around them and want to stand up in what they believe is right. Others is because they had some sense knocked into them and made them see the wrong in doing the things they were doing. Some techniques used in the rebellions was just plain out speaking in front of an audience. Getting the audience railed up and making them understand the wrong or the right in doing such things. For example Martin Luther King Jr. he just spoke to people and stood up for what he felt and knew was right and that was one of the techniques he used. He was also a non-violence protest kind of person and insisted for his followers to do the same. The type of rebellion a lot of us see today is the Donald Trump rallies. A lot of people who are against him are throwing fights in his rallies and making things a lot more difficult for Trump and his followers. A lot of people are doing this because they believe what Trump says in his speeches and what he does are total lies and so they rebel in the worst possible way, fights. If push comes to shove the people that are following Trump will have to have a lot more security and that’s when a lot of things go south and might also end up getting people injured or even killed. The Trumps rally fights aren’t the only rebellion we see today but some aren’t as big as others but in the long shot they all mean the same.
