Santiago becomes so much isolated from the society to the point of wondering whether he is in the same country where he grew up as a child. The society has moved on from the conflicts, and the priorities are now different with the focus being on the fast growing urban economy. The Latinos no longer focus on their old problems according to this movie. They have isolated the people who focus on the past and hedonism is the new focus as everybody struggles to make a living in a fast-paced life in the now stable city. Santiago’s lazy brother is a perfect example of hedonistic character and someone who has no honor for morality.
After this, Shane goes into town to buy farmer clothing to replace his cowboy threads he has been wearing. This shows that life in that time period was hard: hard work, no law enforcement, and shootings. Basically whoever had the most money in the settlement could do as they pleased. Money meant power and whoever had the money had the power. That led to problems when poor farmers were threatened by wealthy cattle drivers which were shown in the movie.
The owners forced them to live in isolated communities near workshops and forced them to buy goods with high interests. The cities were poorly constructed and crowded with people and residents. The work was also dangerous with not much supervising by the government.Workers, on the other hand, had little or even no bargaining power to leave the unsafe conditions. Nowadays, When Americans only pay attention when extreme work strike, levels of abuse are the norm hidden in the factories around the globe.

Shane realizes that he’s been making a mistake the whole time by taking his father for granted and he knows now to be thankful for everything that he gets. Now that he knows, he’s afraid he’s going to lose his dad
Anne came to realize that even though she may have disagreements with her mother, she should still respect her and show her the love that she deserves.

The love of a family is life’s greatest blessing. In life, there is a universal desire for oneness among people—we want to belong. It is why we collaborate, support common causes, cheer for sports teams, feel nationalism; it’s why we build villages, towns, and cities. Families are where we connect ourselves in relationships to past, current, and future generations. For many, family is not only a blessing, but our greatest accomplishment.
How would you respond in a society full of standards that you know you had no chance of reaching because of limited opportunities? In Richard Wright 's native son the character of Bigger lives in an area which is strongly influenced by poverty and he has now way to change that, and instead of acting in a civil manner he takes the approach in which society gives him.

Companies have outsourced factory work to developing countries where they can pay the workers pitiful wages since the citizens of these countries are desperate to earn any money that they can.

Even though these corporations want to seem that they are helping the citizens in these countries, they really do not care about these workers. Many of the corporations have harmed people in order to turn a profit.
Sociologists have determined, the predominant cause of a revolution in the world is poor economic conditions, where people are not able to get adequate income to take care of their bare necessities to feed themselves and make the ends meet. Hence, many resort to illegal activities, particularly in highly populated areas, where massive competition for jobs exists.

Accordingly, due to the instability of the economic and political growth, many people feel obligated to move elsewhere, not only to seek employment to support their families, but to find a better and safer environment to live in. This shows how resilient American people truly were.
