After the colonization of America took place, sectionalism emerged between the now industrialized North and the agrarian South.

The economy called for a strong sense of unity and support within the regions due to the need for modern transportation in importing and exporting purchased goods for war.

Gladwell argues that our greatest strengths can also become our greatest weaknesses. I find Gladwell’s argument to be false based on the fact that the underdog doesn’t always win. He brings into question whether Goliath was actually a strong giant or an incapable underdog; Was David a dark horse or was he favored to win. Gladwell tells many tales in which the underdog faces obstacles they must overcome to succeed, but the underdog can’t always succeed. This is one of the flaws in Gladwell’s argument.
Rationale In order to demonstrate a wider range of comprehension of the novel “A Brave New World”, I decided to write a diary about Bernard’s position throughout the novel, which shows a carping yet courageous voice that demands to be heard.
