What Makes This Rhetorical?

 (image: http://erhetoric.org/Erhetoric/images/1960s%20Computerized%20Desk%20.png)
A persuasion of values. Deliberative rhetoric in visual depiction. Deliberative discourse is focused on the future, what will happen, choices that can be made for the future. The argument: Material things might change, but relationships will stay the same. Mom, a desk, homework to do while friends call to play outside.
