In the story 1984, wasn't it government policy to never have peace, that ongoing war was the natural state of "good" civilizations that fight evil?
War conjures up emotions and images of right vs wrong while Peace conjures up...what? Summer Hammocks, beer and Hot Dogs on a lazy afternoon.
If you want to motivate citizens, War is the recipe.
See?

Its a good start, care to explore how we've fulfilled Ike's and Orwell's dire warnings and what we can do to stop it?
Yeah

when I had to write an essay...

"A General Summary of Aristotle's Appeals ...
The goal of argumentative writing is to persuade your audience that your ideas are valid, or more valid than someone else's. The Greek philosopher Aristotle divided the means of persuasion, appeals, into three categories--Ethos, Pathos, Logos.

Ethos (Credibility), or ethical appeal, means convincing by the character of the author. We tend to believe people whom we respect. One of the central problems of argumentation is to project an impression to the reader that you are someone worth listening to, in other words making yourself as author into an authority on the subject of the paper, as well as someone who is likable and worthy of respect.

Pathos (Emotional) means persuading by appealing to the reader's emotions. We can look at texts ranging from classic essays to contemporary advertisements to see how pathos, emotional appeals, are used to persuade. Language choice affects the audience's emotional response, and emotional appeal can effectively be used to enhance an argument.

Logos (Logical) means persuading by the use of reasoning. This will be the most important technique we will study, and Aristotle's favorite. We'll look at deductive and inductive reasoning, and discuss what makes an effective, persuasive reason to back up your claims. Giving reasons is the heart of argumentation, and cannot be emphasized enough. We'll study the types of support you can use to substantiate your thesis, and look at some of the common logical fallacies, in order to avoid them in your writing."

Read about the confusion between white and hispanic and how liberals play with that confusion to change numbers around.
You should feel right at home around confusion:)
No stupid, there are white hispanics. Its not some "liberal" conspiracy that emerged on the heels of the Martin killing.

Here's a street scene in Argentina, notice all the white hispanics?
