The Guilt Redemption Cycle and Dove's "Campaign for Real Beauty"

This is a paper I recently wrote using Kenneth Burke's concept of the guilt-redemption cycle to analyze the effectiveness of Dove's "Campaign for Real Beauty." Burke drew on popular narratives in religion to analyze what makes effective rhetoric; to see what works in motivating people to action. Guilt, purification, and redemption are popular themes in religion (i.e. confession, dying for our sins, the flood). Religion has also been extremely successful in narrating events in a way that motivates people to action. Therefore, as Burke would argue, it follows that this successful way of dramatizing events (through the guilt-redemption cycle) can also be found in other successful pieces of rhetoric. This paper shows this pattern in Dove’s current campaign.

Hey! Quick question that's entirely off topic. Do you know how to make your site mobile friendly? My website looks weird when viewing from my iphone 4. I'm trying to
find a theme or plugin that might be able to correct this problem.
If you have any recommendations, please share. Cheers!

I don't leave a lot of responses, but I glanced through some responses on "The Guilt Redemption Cycle and Dove's "Campaign for Real Beauty"". I do have some questions for you if you do not mind. Could it be just me or does it seem like a few of the remarks appear like they are coming from brain dead individuals? :-P And, if you are writing at other online social sites, I'd like to follow everything new you have to post. Would you post a list of every one of your social networking pages like your linkedin profile, Facebook page or twitter feed?

With havin so much content do you ever run into any issues of plagorism or copyright violation?
My site has a lot of exclusive content I've either authored myself or outsourced but it looks like a lot of it is popping it up all over the web without my authorization. Do you know any techniques to help protect against content from being ripped off? I'd certainly appreciate it.

I know this if off topic but I'm looking into starting my own blog and was wondering what all is needed to get setup? I'm assuming having a blog like yours would cost a pretty penny?
I'm not very internet smart so I'm not 100% positive. Any tips or advice would be greatly appreciated. Cheers
