Read the passage from ronald reagan's "tear down this wall" speech. perhaps this gets to the root of the matter, to the most fundamental distinction of all between east and west. the totalitarian world produces backwardness because it does such violence to the spirit, thwarting the human impulse to create, to enjoy, to worship. the totalitarian world finds even symbols of love and of worship an affront. who is reagan’s intended audience for this part of his speech?
This part of the speech is meant to rally inspiration on the victims of communist opression in Germany.
The communist presence among the situation with The Berlin Wall is described as a "totalitarian world" by Reagan, as a means to stigmatize and undermine the principles it stands for. The final goal is to encourage the citizens of Berlin to free themselves from communist influence and - as the speech's title states - to "tear down the wall".
(B) to urge an end to communism
Explanation: (B) to urge an end to communism
Explanation:they trying to tear down their wall
just took the test again and the answer is B
Reagan's main purpose is " to applaud small acts of resistance." When Reagan says : "...this gets to the root of the matter..", this refers to the fact he noticed some words on the Berlin Wall. The words were " This wall will fall. Beliefs become reality." Reagan thought they had been spray- painted by a young Berliner. He uses this small act of resistance against the Berlin Wall to justify his view of totalitarian governments.
He is not threatening the Soviet Union. Reagan wants to justify the end to communism in Europe.
He is not explicitly urging an end to communism is this passage.
He is not giving an explanation why he is in Berlin. Reagan's words are emotional. They are not factual.
Reagan's purpose with the passage is
to urge an end to communism
This passage is from one of the most significant speeches in the history of the cold war when Reagan spoke to a crowd of various disposition for the end of Communism and talked about how it is bad and ignorant.
In this speech he uses the small acts of resistance against the wall and describes them as the spirit of humanity and then goes on to ask for the fall of the communist regimes.
This is argued on the basis of the values of the west.
To urge to end communism is the correct answer.
Ronald Reagan was an American president who served from 1967 to 1975. The speech Tear Down This Wall was delivered by him on June 12, 1987, and it was an open invitation to Mikhail Gorbachev to destroy the Berlin Wall, which as a big symbol for the USSR; due to its symbolic importance, it would also mean the end of communism, so by delivering this speech, the then-president urged to end communism.
