And I think William Faulkner has set the theme of the good vs. circumstantial evilness in the story by father and son’s example. Abner Snope has been working as a sharecropper and living the hard life and working as a peasant, he never finds the ways to enhance his and his family’s life. So, naturally, as per the human nature, he hates rich people because of their richness and he used to calm down his anger by engaging in barn burning activities and find satisfaction by giving rich people particularly financial and social damages (Faulkner, 1993). In fact, Sarty Snope is in contradiction of his dad’s philosophy that to have an animosity against the wealthy people by damaging their property.

Saadi "For the ignorant there is no better rule than silence and if he knew its advantage he would not be ignorant."
Always put on your good behaviour- even if you are poor, penniless and underprivileged. Being filthy rich and well-off (or educated with PHD) means nothing if you have no adab (good manners and ethics)’. Well said, I thought. I had nothing to oppose. In today’s society, where parents, teachers, and elders are no longer given their much honours, respect or rights; basic manners and common sense have made a swift exit, whilst we compete for glory, knowledge, or worldly gain.
So alone, that even when everyone knows you, they don’t know you by your name, but by your title-freak, loser, nerd etc. Truly alone. So alone, that you had forgotten how your voice sounds. No? Then you are the luckiest and most fortunate person on earth, although you may never know that.
