For instance, Oz won't help Dorothy and her companions since "everyone must pay for everything he gets" (66). By the end of the story, we clearly know that Oz is a humbug and he made use of them by employing their private matter's to subordinate to his capitalism logic. In this logic, Dorothy and her company can be re-conceptualized

Within A Christmas Carol by Charles Dickens, Ebenezer Scrooge, is introduced the first chapter (or stave considering the time of the book’s publishing). Throughout the Stave, Scrooge is introduced as a greedy man, who is very hateful and clever. This was made apparent when Dickens chose to compare Scrooge to the cold and harshness of a snow storm. This was also shown when he, quite cleverly, told charity workers, as well as order his own nephew, to leave his workplace. His business partner’s death didn’t even faze him, so much.
The conflict begins with Ebenezer Scrooge being a greedy, selfish old man. For Scrooge, Christmas is just a poor excuse for picking a man’s pocket (Dickens,6). The climax of the drama is when Scrooge sees his grave and realizes that no one cares. In the drama, three spirits from his past, present, and future show him how greedy and mean he is to everyone. Scrooge makes a promise of changing and being a better person before it’s too late.
With Scrooge's attitude and nature, he was extremely selfish, miserly, and callous at the start of the novel. However, the spirits are able to change him into a better man, or more like convince him to become better himself. The way that they did this is that they showed him various scenes of Christmas, but sometimes said or showed him things that were a result of his former nature, such as when the Ghost of Christmas says ‘“[...]If he be like to die, he had better do it, and decrease the surplus population.”’(p.53) to remind Scrooge of how earlier he had dismissed the businessmen collecting donations despite his current wish for Tiny Tim to live. In particular, one moment that could be said to be 'cruel' is when the Ghost of Christmas Future points to the grave as a gesture for him.
