Peace prize, Wangari Muta Maathai echoes Lincoln’s plea to the Confederacy and the Union that “[they] are friends, not enemies. [They] must not be enemies,” when she attests that the root of all social and economic problems are found in nondemocratic governance, and only through the cooperation between the people and the government, and through the education of the people, can countries attempt to bring about growth and change. Maathai, being raised in rural Kenya in harmony with nature, has slowly seen, not only her little village, but the enviroments of most third world countries ravaged my misuse and a lack of education. Through the connections she’s made between the environment, poor governance, and a lack of education, she was able to bring about change in Kenya and many third world countries. Promoting a transparent government based on democratic ideals, Maathai utilizes antithesis, causual analysis, and cause and effect narration.
