The author’s reason behind the conclusion of the chapter is to express the worst stories of slaughterhouse employees that become so shocking the stories themselves can be seen as unbelievable, but are sadly true; Schlosser uses the most dramatic story to portray how atrocious the owners of the slaughterhouses are, the story is used to justify his arguments against the slaughterhouses and is proven with the careless treatment the corporations have toward their own employees. Chapter 9: Analyze how Schlosser combines logical and emotional appeals in this chapter to create an effective message.

At the end of Charlie’s incline of intelligence he becomes paranoid and suspicious like when he examined Dr. Nemur and Dr. Strauss’ credentials and morals. Charlie examines their credentials as such, “I believe that Dr. Nemur was afraid of further delay because he was worried someone else might make a discovery along these lines and take the credit from him. Dr. Strauss on the other hand might be called a genius, although I feel that his areas of knowledge are too limited.” (Keyes 297). Even if Charlie was suspicious and paranoid, seeing the world greatly impacted him because through his experiences he realized how he was previously, before the surgery.

This shows Sheldon bad drugs really are, and what they can do to a person, his brother went from having a decent job to having nothing.

The economic hindrances were shown through the devastating effects of greed. Greed could be seen in McTeague and Trina’s relationship, Marcus’s jealously, and Zarkow and Maria’s relationship. Those three factors showed how greed can largely affect how a person lives their life and how they affect the people around them. However, without greed McTeague would not be the same tragic story it
The collective greed of mankind has resulted in a planet where our resources are being used up at an alarming rate. Greedy people are often looked at like selfish and ignorant human beings. Ebenezer Scrooge is like that, but there was a time that he wasn’t. Ebenezer is a rich businessman who despises the poor. Scrooge didn’t believe in the Christmas Spirit, all he thought was that Christmas was just of load of humbug!(Dickens, 6)
When Teddy is faced with predicaments with his aunt and uncle, he succumbs to pressure. As his uncle is blaring out irrational comments at him, he does nothing but “[sits] by the window and [looks] out at the rain” (Nowlan 2). Teddy’s lack of rebellion is the conflict that portrays his inability to express his own opinions in words which is a key to obtaining individuality. He is blinded by his own innocence and succumbs to his uncle’s words when he sits alone which implies that he agrees with him. Another example of his innocence that stops him from becoming an individual is when he destroys his creation.

Winton shows the audience why he is doomed to fail once he professes his faith to O’Brian, by avowing that he does not believe in God but in “The spirit of Man”(p.279) Winston because he has lost all notion of reality is unable to understand that it is not the spirit of man inside of him making him want to fight the oppressive regimen of BIG BROTHER it is the Holy Spirt driving him or more likely the Holy Spirit was driving him until he utter his profession of faith declaring there is no God to him.
I agree with Zinczenko’s arguments about society taking on responsibility for their own actions. We blame the companies for the lack of self control and choices we make. If we did not consumed the items they sell then they would stop selling them. We have turned into a society that sues very one over our own choices in life. Zinczenko’s introduces the objection of knowledge and self control by saying “we know better than to eat two meals a day”.
In his article, “Equality, Expectation, and Envy,” Alain de Botton rests on the idea that due to status envy, people cannot be truly happy with their current standings because they are always putting themselves into comparisons with those who surround them. Throughout time, people seem to feel as though “neither who they are nor what they have is quite enough” (25), and due to these situations, people are always in search of becoming better, or succeeding above those whom they consider themselves in relation to. Botton bases his arguments through means of philosophy, historical documents, psychological evidence, various writers, etc., all through recurring times in the past where similar instances have occurred. Botton makes the case that
