The Maltese Falcon, like many films of its era, joins in the distrust of all things foreign.

From “American Psycho”, there is no clear cut reason behind his killings, but many are due to the fact that the people around him cause his feelings of insecurity and inadequacy to arise. They make fun of his strange demeanor and call him many names; his lawyer, after being caught for killing an old lady outside of an ATM, refers to him as “a brown-nosing goody-goody”, and many people outside of his select few group of friends refer to him as “yuppie trash” (American Psycho).

One perception, I took that I have thought about before is that there is corrupt workers in the system. The reason for that being because Dexter is committing crime, while working for the Miami Metro Police Department in which makes him to be corrupt agent. Another opinion about this series is that I agree and disagree with what Dexter did. One reason why I agree is because he is taking care of a guilty murder.

Abigail was a character that stood out as a dark force because he wanted Mrs. Proctor dead so she could be with John Proctor.
Introduction The Big Sleep describes a time in America’s past where the social order was decaying into a corrupted mob, ruled by gangsters like those of the 1920s and 30s. Out of this dark rubble, mystery writers at the time imagined their detective knight, a private eye who would uncover the corruption and set order right in the world. Raymond Chandler did just this in The Big Sleep, published in 1939. His knight in not so shining armor was Philip Marlowe, a champion of whoever would hire him.

In the previous paragraph, we understand that the psychological problems trafficking causes can be just as devastating as the physical problems. When people discuss human trafficking, they often are confused as to why the victim didn’t just leave or tell someone.

In “Travis, B,” Chet struggles with envy and his own feelings of inadequacy. In “Spy vs Spy,” the characters also struggle with insecurities and fears that actual imperil their lives.
