Words of War
WORDS OF WAR

“...you’ve really identified what’s happening in these presidential addresses. Your four stages really hold up no matter the date or the war. I feel like if everyone saw this video, we would not be led as easily into what the narrator calls, ‘this great killer of youth…’ -Pete Weissman, Political Speechwriter, Washington D.C.

An original examination of how presidents rhetorically move a nation to war.:

  • Provocation “The deeds of our enemy are evil.”
  • Justification “War is in our national interests.”
  • Lamentation “We hate war.”
  • Inspiration “We will win!”
