His usefulness in the businesses world has been made redundant by a blind faith based on shallow qualities such as being “well liked” and funny as he puts it. Miller uses Loman’s character to highlight the falsehood of the dream to the audience. New York Times writer Brooke Atkinson suggests that Willy does “not seem to be concerned with the quality of the product he is selling, his core values are based on things that are ephemeral at most.” What emphasises Lomans blind faith is his persevering idealism and naivety throughout the novel, he makes several references to plans for the future, frequently mentioning that “someday I’ll have my own business” and that he will “get a little place out in the country”. His idealism bears resemblance to Steinbeck's own ‘Lennie’ who remains ignorant of his reality and immerses himself in a fantasy in which the audience knows will not change.

He did this over tracks that managed to sound fresh by dipping one Timberland-clad foot in a bygone era while keeping the other firmly planted in the iTunes age. Released in July, the confessional record grabbed the peak position on the Billboard 200 in its debut, but posted just under 150,000 copies, leading some, including MTV News' own Rob Markman, to cry foul, arguing that God's Son deserved a better first week. Dissenters, though, insisted it was too soon to set the album alongside his firmly classic debut, Illmatic.

To conclude the essay: Chris Lilley uses satirical devices such as: irony, sarcasm, stereotypes, hyperbole and juxtaposition to portray the characters correctly in the context of the show for entertainment. Although the show is to only to really make fun of the ridiculous stereotypes, it does arise some serious topics in todays society.

These statements mean being neutral never helps the victim. In this case it helps Hitler and his men because they are getting what they want, and if they have to do neutral things to get what he wants he will do it.

People don’t want perfection, they want to be content with life. But ignoring the real troubles does not mean that society is content, it means society is oblivious. By society not taking action towards the problems in the world, that is no better than the people in the book Fahrenheit 451. Ray Bradbury wrote a cautionary tale putting his prediction of the future into the book Fahrenheit 451. His prediction was that people would become so absorbed to their “barber shop families” and “seashell radios” (Bradbury) that they have no concept of world problems.
