This is evident in none more than Tom Buchanan . Tom is useless to society, and more a burden on it than a benefit, given his personality and actions. Tom was “...one of the most powerful ends that ever played...everything afterwards savours of anticlimax...It was hard to realize that a man in my own generation was wealthy enough to do that.” Tom didn’t do anything after his years of football.

However submitting to the power of the system does not guarantee you anything. In fact it is very much the opposite. Those who choose to carve their own roads and to create and imagine can end up beating the system and coming out on top, or they can be pulverized by the shear force which it contains.

A lack of horizontal cohesion causes fear and loathing amongst different social groups, be it ethnic, religious, or political. This distrust might also be because of a sense of injustice; some groups might gain political preference while others are treated as second-class citizens (Browne, 2013). Violence and conflict thus erupts in an effort to fight for social or political rights. A lack of vertical trust, however, can also cause the eruption of violence. When citizens do not trust their government’s ability to provide security and basic services, it undermines the authority of the state thus crippling efforts of states to prevent or solve civil conflicts.
