Read the following passage from "Their Finest Hour," by Winston Churchill. He
delivered the speech to the House of Commons on June 18, 1940, shortly after Great
Britain suffered heavy losses at the Battle of France.
[T]he winter will impose a strain upon the Nazi regime, with
almost all Europe writhing and starving under its cruel heel,
which, for all their ruthlessness, will run them very hard. We must
not forget that from the moment when we declared war on the
3rd September it was always possible for Germany to turn all her
Air Force upon this country, together with any other devices of
invasion she might conceive, and that France could have done
little or nothing to prevent her doing so. We have, therefore, lived
under this danger, in principle and in a slightly modified form,
during all these months. In the meanwhile, however, we have
enormously improved our methods of defense, and we have
learned what we had no right to assume at the beginning, namely,
that the individual aircraft and the individual British pilot have a
sure and definite superiority. Therefore, in casting up this dread
balance sheet and contemplating our dangers with a
disillusioned eye, I see great reason for intense vigilance and
exertion, but none whatever for panic or despair.
Explain the comparison that Churchill makes in the last sentence of the passage,
How is the content of the passage similar to a bookkeeper's balance sheet which is
a summary of what a company owns and owes as well as how much people have
invested in the company? Then analyze how the comparison helps Churchill fulfill his
purpose of persuading the British people to stand firm despite recent setbacks

A. It provided French citizens with a successful model for a new form of government.
The American Revolution of 1776 successfully achieved the independence of the 13 American colonies. This revolution laid the foundations of a modern democratic form of government and although the ideas for a republic were common among European intellectuals, establishing a democratic government was a completely new political enterprise until then. The success of this revolution inspired French philosophers, intellectuals, and citizens in order to start a revolution in their own country, to overthrow the absolute monarchy, the nobility, and the great unfairness that the three estates systems meant to most citizens, merchants, artisans, and peasants alike. Therefore, the French Revolution finally took place 13 years after the American revolution, in 1789.
