1Guns, Germs and “Why did the Inka lose?” Throughout his book Mann argues that “the Americas were immensely busier, more diverse, and more populous” While Diamond examines the events at Cajamarca through the context of Eurasian advantage, Mann addresses 1532 through a much more objective lens, identifying key factors in the Incan culture that lead to a decisive, yet opportune, Spanish victory. Although the Spanish did wield powerful and advantageous tools of conquest, countless preexisting cultural dynamics determined the Incan failure, such as widespread disease and subsequent cultural/political disorganization, and internal factionalism. 2He explains that their superior military technology and usage of horses allowed them to easily overtake the multitudes of Incan soldiers who should have held the demographic advantage. (Diamond, 119) Diamonds narrow focus on the question of ‘why did the Spanish succeed?’ leaves out any room for asking what factors were affecting the Incan civilization that may have put them at the disadvantage.

Martin Luther King Jr. is a well-known person in history. He is known for his work in civil rights, and is known for his I Have a Dream Speech. King's speech not only changed history for the black community it gave hope to black throughout the world. King's speech was so successful because he was able to arouse his audience to their feet and get them angry at society. In his speech, he uses different types of language. Using strong powerful words to influence a listener's opinion, and using
oppression and racism, being denied their rights as human beings on a daily basis. Slavery may had been abolished, but blacks were nowhere near close to being looked at as equal to the white population, especially in the south. This was a time when hero’s such as Rosa Parks and others decided to take a stand and defend themselves, demanding to be heard and demanding to bring about a change. This was the age of Martin Luther King, one of the innovative leaders of the Civil Rights Movement. He was a
Martin Luther was born in Eisleben, Germany on November 10th, 1483. His parents were Hans and Magarete (Lindemann) Luther. The second born, Martin had three brothers, two of whom died of the plague.

Martin Luther King Jr. was not only a leader but a hero. He was a man with courage, a man who woke up dreaming of change, a man who risked his life just to make a life changing difference. He dreamed that one day man and woman, Blacks, Whites, Hispanics and even Jews would be treated equally. He dreamed that no matter your race or your sex you would get treated as well as the next.

He strongly disputed the claim that freedom from God's punishment for sin could be purchased with money. He confronted indulgence salesman Johann Tetzel, a Dominican friar, with his Ninety-Five Theses in 1517. His refusal to
Just and unjust laws may be considered logical evidence as well as emotional, but Martin Luther King Jr. uses a few much better logical examples to convince the audience to see his point of view. His logical examples of moral wrongdoings include strong emotion and cold harsh facts.
