Best Answer

James Otis's goal differed from that of Sam Adams's in their reasons to fight a war. Otis's reason was for peace for his fellow men and to fight so that "a man can stand up." In other words, he meant that people give up all that they have and fight just for the rights of individuals everywhere. In contrast, Adam's reason for war was because of his personal history that implies that he may want to start war out of revenge.

What positions in favor of revolution are argued by sam Adams and James Otis how does johnny react to Otiss words?

Adams supports revolution partially because of a desire for revenge; Otis wants a revolution because it will give the colonists the chance to stand up for themselves,"a man can stand up." Johnny at first supports Adams, as he desires revenge rather than forgiveness. Later, Johnny is moved by Otis' desire to fight for the rights of his fellow man.
