He learns that he was unfair, because the same thing happened to him, the court 's verdict was unfair and wrong to him. In Masters’ poem “John M. Church, Lawyer for the Mine,” the poet tells me that the speaker of the poem was an attorney for the “Q” and that he insured the owners of the mine. The other characters he refers to are Butch and the judge. He says that after death his heart is devoured by rats and a snake made a nest in his skull. I infer that this means he was a bad person and didn 't do much good when he was
Neuromancer Summary Henry Dorsett Case was a highly skilled console cowboy (computer hacker), who was feeling greedy when he was doing a job for his employer and figured he might be able to steal from them.

a few years ago on Netflix, but after re-watching it now and really analyzing it, I’m extremely disgusted and infuriated. I knew the first priority for giant corporations, and this country, is money, but the lengths these companies have gone for that is disgusting. It’s immensely corrupt that the animals, farmers, and factory workers are treated with no respect whatsoever and are continuing to be taken advantage of, while the companies don’t have to face any consequences. I was at a loss for words when I learned that these companies have government officials and food safety organizations backing them, making it so easy for them to get away with killing consumers from contaminated food. This also makes it virtually impossible to stop them change the system, which makes me even more upset.
In the scenario of Karl and Bob, they are both wrong in their actions. Their problem started when they decided to flee town in order to run away from their problems. As a result, Karl and Bob’s situation became more severe because Karl decided to steal a thousand dollars from a store and Bob decided to cheat an old retired man into giving him a thousand dollars. Karl’s actions may seem worse in the eyes of society and the law; however, when considering the morality of the situation, I am convinced that Bob was worst in his actions to cheat the elderly retired man. The difference between stealing from the store and cheating the elderly retired man is that the store can gain the money it lost fairly quick in contrast it may be harder for the elderly man to regain the money that he unfortunately lost because he is retired.
He gets angry every time his fellow workers talk about their co-worker Paul Allen’ card because how well designed and expensive it costs. When watching this movie, I wondered why Patrick Bateman was envious of Paul Allen. If his dad owned the company, then getting a better designed card should not be a problem to man that lives a lavish lifestyle. As the movie goes on, Patrick goes home after work but uses the alley way where he sees a homeless man and his dog. He gives the man the impression that he was trying to help me out by giving me some money but brings out a knife and kills both the man and his dog exhibiting a psychotic behavior.
Both Hard Times and the Yorkshire Cloth Worker’s Petition have the same argument about industrialization causing people to lose their humanity. In the case of Hard Times, it starts with an employer named Mr. Gradgrind, which his name is an onomatopoeic for the sound of an of a machine churning. His lack of human compassion is further elucidated when Dickens describes him as “With a rule, and a pair of scales and the multiplication table always in his pocket, sir, ready to weigh and measure any parcel of human nature, and tell you exactly what it comes to”, which reflected the sentiment of early industrialists that workers were expendable objects whose only purpose in their life is make to profit. While he has no humanity in him, he also goes out of his way on enforcing that mentality onto his workers, which was exemplified when he called a little girl “Girl Number 20” instead of by her name Sissy Jupe. He also goes out his way to mock Sissy for not knowing what a horse is.

Think of that! 33.3% sometimes use them. Now, all we need to do is convince that 33.3% to bring reusable bags to the grocery store. If we keep on buying more and more of these bags for 10 cents, we will ruin our earth because it will choke landfills, and pick at your wallet. Plastic actually costs a lot more than making the plastic.
Mr. Wickfield signed a paper saying that Uriah had lent him five thousand pounds. That was false. Uriah had lent him nothing.” Micawber quoted this in the letter, which he had launched, when he claimed Uriah Heep seduced him into the “criminal life”.

Uriah Heep represents desperation because of how he take advantage of Mr. Micawber by tricking Micawber into working for him.
We are facing a modern day slave trade, and the sad thing is it is happening right under our noses. We are all buying these products made off the backs of mostly nonviolent African American, in a scheme for the rich to continue staying rich, and the poor getting arrested. Even our military is having the prisoners make their
Boss Tweed was very cruel and corrupt. He was extremely self centered and only cared about himself and his money. In 1860, not being a lawyer, he opened a law office. While running the law office, he collected large amounts of money for legal services. These “legal services” were fake and he was collecting the money illegally.12 While Boss Tweed was talking to Allison, he tried to get her to join him on his mission to try and take over the New York City.
