Secondly, Dandelion Wine contains a plot where a character goes from a childlike state of ignorance to full knowledge, which correlates with a time and technology theme. As “Dandelion Wine” justifies, the plot did not follow the kind of developmental one but grew out of Bradbury’s own childhood in the Golden Years before the Great Depression. The main characters are Doug and Tom Spaulding, in which Doug moves to two different states of mind in a period of time (84-95). This novel deals with a theme of time and technology. Lastly, Fahrenheit 451 deals with a plot of book burning which represents censorship and the main character is represented against society which creates alienation and loneliness themes.

In a book I have read called, The PACT, three young men who grew up in the streets of Newark, were faced with the temptation of the city life, pitfalls and even jail. One of the men named Sam ended up selling drugs because poverty drove him in the wrong direction. He then soon got arrested for selling drugs. This shows that even though, Yummy and Sam live in different cities, the environments they live in are similar. They are living in an environment that involves stealing, robbing, drug selling, and many other crimes.
Moreover they contend these sub cultures gather around specific milieus favoured for social interaction. With no solution to working-class youth unemployment, educational disadvantage, compulsory mis-education, dead-end jobs, the routinisation and specialisation of labour, low pay and the loss of skills. Sub-cultural strategies cannot match, meet or answer the structuring dimensions emerging in this period for the class as a whole. So, when the post-war subcultures address the problematics of their class experience, they often do so in ways, which reproduce the gaps Thus the ‘Teddy Boy’ replication of an upper class style of dress ‘covers’ the gap between largely manual, unskilled, near-lumpen real careers and life-chances, and the ‘all-dressed-up-and-nowhere-to-go’ experience of Saturday evening.
In that article, the reader gets to understand how blues and jazz impacted the rock’n’roll world and created the type of music the Beatles would become famous for producing. This article would talk about the upbringing of rock’n’roll music to the United Kingdom by the way of people brining back records from the United States on trips. This was similar to the Beatles going on tour in Hamburg then coming back to Liverpool with better unheard of rock’n’roll music. People would leave for the United States and come back with this music people in the UK were not exposed to thus giving the UK population exposure through imported music. I believe that the article on Paul McCartney’s upbringing is the least like this article because it just tells the story of Paul McCartney and the creation of the band from his point of view.

Chartism was one of the biggest movements of the nineteenth century as it incorporated the desires and ambitions of millions of people from all over Britain. Various political, social and economic grievances were merged in to a huge protesting movement that strived for political reform and political democracy. In 1832 an act called the Reform Act was passed which removed small boroughs and added more seats in Parliament for certain towns, however it failed to extend the vote to members of society who did not hold a lease or own a property. This act indisputably endorsed the middle class as well as establishing the framework for later politics.
There is the new “ism” on the block and is the true culprit responsible for the deep-divide between the haves and have-nots in today’s society. It looks to remain anonymous, unnoticed and to hide in the shadows cast by racism and other forms of discrimination to avoid exposure. It uses media and propaganda to keep poor minorities fighting against one another and keeps their hate and anger for being locked out of the American dream focused on each other and away from the true problem plaguing society, Classism. To breakdown the topic of classism, we will first breakdown the word classism. Merriam Webster defines class as a group sharing the same economic or social status.
Low wages afforded a means of subsistence and little else. This kept the black population from any economic advancement in society and thereby forced them into a poor laboring class with no way out.

The main purpose of the son is to be the reason of the father to keep going, to stay alive and survive. The son symbolizes goodness and pureness, in the book the son is very much like a representation of god as we appreciate in the next quote where the author writes referring to what the father is thinking: “He knew only that the child was his warrant. He said: If he is not the word of God God never spoke”.(page 5)

Introduction Diversity is a characteristic that is characterized by the recognition and shared regard of the similarities and differences in culture, age, ethnicity, gender, religion, sexual orientation, and experiences that make people unique. Many people suppose that the Canadian society is diverse and problems such as discrimination and racism are not difficulties affecting this community. Canadians understand that they are characterized by diversity, tolerance, and acceptance and that these are the traits that virtually define the values of this nation. Although many people assert that the country is diverse, previous cases and literature have portrayed how the Canadian society is segregated and intolerant. The most disturbing elaboration of intolerance in the Canadian society was the Saskatoon starlight tours where law enforcement officers would pick aboriginals from their communities, and they were taken to the outskirts of the city in the dead of winter where they were left for dead.
