This suggests that Holden could be relying on his hand being injured as an excuse to cover for himself. There have been many in history extending to today who have accomplished much with an injury or disability. Relying on this excuse as a crutch can be seen as Holden’s inability to recognize his own failings. This is seen time and time again in his misinterpretation of his cool self image, his lack of social skills, and his overconfidence in fighting. This inability to see his own failings also shows Holden’s state of mind as he himself is failing in life in a way.
Typically when one person stops doing their job, another person is unable to do theirs, and then another and another, until the whole community is unable to function. As Enkidu joined civilization, he sacrificed his self-reliance, meaning his sense of reliability on the community is more of a dependability. Which is a risk because he is now depending on a community he has just joined. He is already weaker than he was before and has gotten used to things being done for him, so it is improbable that he would be able to live on his own. So if people stopped doing their part in the community Enkidu would either have to learn to survive on his own again, find a new community, or die.
Eric being portrayed as a figure that stands out compared to other characters tells us that even though the family accepted him, society will always have a hard time understanding people who are not identical and come from a different cultural background than them.

This symbolizes the distinct lifestyles around the globe. Eric discovers and inspects every new object that he stumbles upon and asks the narrator loads of questions, but most of the question were about things that natives overlook and ignore in their everyday lives.

After asking his mother about his father’s PTSD, he was told it was because of the war, but Terry knew there was something else, something specific that had happened; “ But it bothered him whenever it happened.

After this conversation, John avoids you from now on. A few days later, your boss talks to you about the exchange between you and John. You lose your job, because of how you identify and because those around you do not like the way you identify.

The binary opposition between the older Birlings and Gerald in An Inspector Calls, and the Birling children displays how the personality of a person could be the factor in

Scott Fitzgerald explains how he doesn’t believe that our elders are so much more knowledgeable than us and how marriage sours quickly (He really gets into many different topics). Elders were more than willing to share experiences with younger people but they really don’t want to hear a reaction to their experience.

Troy probably left his family in shambles due to his stint in prison but he worked hard to obtained stable job after he finished his sentence.
