Lower and middle class citizens are separated from their common neighborhoods and instead put in upper class societies. To conclude, the fragmented world inside The Great Gatsby is proven to exist because of the constant greed, lack of loyalty and the major difference in social class.

Media and society tells us that the homeless are dirty, unsafe and are not to be trusted. Truthfully this mentality or idea we have fixed in our brains is the main cause for their criminalization.
