An example of this would be the colonists and the Native Americans.
The middle class in Mumbai have always been distrustful of builders notorious for their ill-kept promises, but despite their various socio-cultural loyalties and affiliations, they all must give in to the temptations of sudden wealth while a few like the Pintos are frightened into submission and the Masterji gets eliminated. Thomas Friedman, the well-known chronicler of globalisation, argues that the destruction in the wake of globalisation is inherently creative in that it destroys the old to make way for the new.

So, Pip devises a plan to secretly set Herbert up with a business
To be Selfish is to be bad, sometimes excessively for someone’s own ambition, advantages, not thinking of others. We can see that the people in the story are selfish.

Evidence of this was when war factories shut down because war supplies were no longer needed now that the war had ended, this left many people unemployed (Canadian War Museum). This shows that World War I was a means of income and jobs for many people and as it came to an end so did their career and wealth. Similarly, after the soldiers returned from war, they had no jobs. This was the result of Canada’s fragile economy, which had difficulty employing and supporting demobilized soldiers and left many people jobless(Reilly, Skikavich).

Miss Kinnian had to go away because she knew that people did not treat him fairly, and he didn’t understand that all. Charlie first experiences people making fun of him, now that he has knowledge to understand that. This event must have hurt him deeply, because the very people he trusted and thought were his friends were actually mocking and making fun of him.

This quote states how people are not used to and are kind of afraid of Charlie, as his newfound intelligence was not the Charlie they knew.
Lack of freedom, war and poor quality of life are few of the many factors that contributed to the Japanese immigration to Canada. For example, women were not allowed to work outside of the home and their their social freedoms, which included the right to vote and play a positive role in the society, were denied.
