However, being satisfied and being unpassionate is close to each other. “To be excited is still to be dissatisfied”(BNW Ch5). Because the citizens are given soma and games, and sex is a part of everyday life, they are content with corporal pleasure. As the quote before suggests, being satisfied with pleasure brings apathy to their own circumstances. Due to this, they will lose passion to create, and will only consume and follow what the World State commands.
“I would rather do that than be dead. I would trade democracy for life. I would trade independence and honor and freedom and decency for life. I will give you all these things and you give me the power to walk and see and hear and breathe the air and taste my food” (Trumbo 122). This quote shows how he would have not fought in the war for all of those things and stayed at home with Kareen and his family.

In the third story he brings up death, and how it kept him motivated to do what he loves. In the fourth, and final, story he concludes his speech with a quote that convinces his audience that there are many different ways to go about life. His advice is to find your passion and to live your life doing what you love. Although some of Jobs's audience may disagree with his speech, he is right , because many people will live life regardless of what life throws their way. Nobody wants to die, yet when we choose to live, are we truly living our lives to the fullest?
Advertisements are everywhere, on television, radio, social media, billboards, magazines, and even on yearbooks. On the other hand, would it not be nice if every advertisement an individual saw, read, or heard were actually true? Like using Axe body spray really did attract women or eating Snickers truly made one satisfied in seconds? Yet, most of the time the advertisements that seem too good to be true, actually are. In fact, countless of ads are only slightly true and instead filled with many common errors in reasoning, known as logical fallacies, a sneaky marketing technique companies utilize to trick a consumer into giving them their undivided attention and money.
The 1920s was a time in history that most people these days love and look at wishing they lived in that time. The Great Gatsby is a book based in the 1920s, or also known as the roaring 20s. This book is full of carelessness, people trying to earn money to impress people, and a guy that tries way too hard to get the girl. Throughout the 20s people didn’t worry or care about many things.

Holden's fear of rejection is the source of not being able to create relationships which isolates him from society. Because of this fear of intimacy and rejection, Holden begins to go into a very depressed state. Another reason why Holden is never integrated into society is because he still has the mentality of living in the last. This is another problem Allie comes into. When Holden states, "I like Allie just because someone is dead you don't just stop liking them, for God's sakes- especially if they were about a thousand times nicer than the people you know that're alive (Salinger 171), he believes that genuine happiness and peace can be obtained in his past and believes that Allie is no longer present in society.
If they are truly a utopia they would push their citizens toward success instead of holding them back with these torcher methods. The government has some of the citizens thinking if they take their handicaps off then things will go back to the old ways. “If I tried to get away with it,” said George, “then other people would get away with it and pretty soon we would be right back to the dark ages again, with everybody competing against everybody else” (Vonnegut.p3). The people hate being held back form their true potential. That is why Harrison rebels, because his is tired of getting held back form greatness.

Nick also mentions that in one section that he is drunk for the first time in years, likely because he didn’t have easy access to liquor. Those are just some of the surface things.

The citizens seem free to do whatever they want, in that they throw ridiculous parties and throw many fits and tantrums that can turn violent.
Joy, glee, bliss, felicity, there are so many words to describe this one feeling we all search for, we know where we want to be but how do we know what roads to take to get to our destination. Happiness is in our daily lives, we believe that we are meant to be happy and need to stop at nothing to find it, the reason being it has been burned into our minds and is all around us. Anywhere from Happy holidays to Happy meals we are centered around this one idea yet we have such a hard time finding it. The declaration of independence states, “...with certain unalienable rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the ‘pursuit’ of happiness” even our founding fathers knew that finding happiness isn’t easy so they promised us not happiness itself but the pursuit.
