When people settle for something and they know that they’re worth more than that, then how are they supposed to know right from wrong? Humans make bad decisions all the time, but that’s how they learn from them. To really make it in life, people should never settle for less.

Equality would not have been able to be with the golden one or care for his child and teach him the importance of his individualism. If the people today are motivated by curiosity and the wanting a loving place then our world would be very evil. People would not care about others or one to put in work that I was needed to be done like they do now. By this Equality has every right to have great amount of passion for his people and be curious of what is out

Adaptation has never been a strong side of mankind. People are just not fond of the fact they need to change in order to survive both as species and personalities.

Have you ever wondered what the fine line between egoism and self esteem is? What is the meaning of egoism? What makes you an egoist? How can someone be an egoist.

Distraction Versus Happiness Frequently, individuals have amusing distractions and happiness that conflict one another— moreover, individuals live in a world where enticing distraction dominates all of society. The societies in both Fahrenheit 451 and ”Equilibrium”, citizens are so focused on distractions that they do not realize that they have never been truly happy before.

I agree that while I was reading chapter one it did focus on the setting and how it described their social class and wealth in the story. I noticed how the people that lived in East Egg, like Tom, seemed to be very pompous, selfish, and fake. People like Nick Carraway that lives in West Egg seem to be honest and do not hide themselves from society.
