英美文化课的讲演稿与幻灯片

英美文化课要求小组做专题报告,抽到了美国。十人一组,每人三分钟。第一次做这样的东西,以往一直光写不说,算是自我突破了。

As we all know,if we'd like to choose one word to describe the United States,it must be Freedom.And if we wanna delete 3 letters of it,then,out comes the word Free.It came from

The Social Contract

,one of the most important works of Jean Jacques Rousseau,the Great French Enlightenment Thinker.In that work, Rousseau declared that Man is born free, and everywhere he is in chains.It was developed again in

the Declaration of Independence

,as the sentence We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights,that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.And that is exactly what leaded to the foundation of the new country.

We often say that the USA might have the most perfect political system all over the world.Its government was built according to Checks and Balance,in which law the President,the Congress and the Supreme Court are independent from each other.But in the old world of Kings and Knights,this is absolutely rebellious.In order to win their rights,the American have experienced a cruel war,which was called

War of Independence

.Here's a movie clip about it,which title was

The Patriot

.

[Playing movie,wait 3 minutes...]

OK,ladies and gentlemen.Finally,you know,they won their freedom and democracy,but as for us,it is still in the fog.I know not what course you may take; but as for me, give me liberty or give me death!If we have the right to make a choice,why not to be a patriot? That's the end of my speech,thank you everyone.
