Atwood satirizes our society’s values for one skill over another through the drastic differences in profession. In Oryx and Crake, those that are numerically inclined are treated like dukes while those that are verbally inclined are treated like peasants. Crake and his scientist counterparts not only live a more luxurious life, but are also more respected by the society. Crake graduates Watson-Crick with a job at RejoovenEsense, “one of the most powerful Compounds of them all” (Atwood 248). RejoovenEsense is not only one of the biggest pharmaceutical companies, but one of the most respected in the world for their research and development of the anti-aging pill.
However, Fitzgerald was right when he said rich people live life differently, and the one thing they all have in common is at the center of their habits: vast amounts of money. In The Great Gatsby, Fitzgerald shows the brutal effects money has on people, ultimately corrupting them. To be from old money means to been born into a family with established wealth and power, and Tom Buchanan was exactly that. Due to years of entitlement, Tom grew to be a very controlling, aggressive man, and the way he treated people reflected his personality. For example Tom 's wife, Daisy, was valued like a trophy, instead of a loved one.
There are issues with the equality of the system, as depending on the income of the accused their experiences will be completely different. The Pyrrhic defeat theory tries to explain this broken system as the consequences of those in power seeking a scapegoat the poor, and to escape responsibility of their own criminalities. The issue is perception; there have been such negative connotations of being poor that poverty and criminality have become interchangeable. Those with power have the narrative to keep this simplified view of criminality alive having their own success over the failure of others, The Pyrrhic theory is worrisome, because acknowledging it means fighting years of false narrative and realize how useless our criminal justice system really
David Noise's "A Modest Proposal" Readers Response David Noises Modest proposal is a satire that is based on the disproportion of power that 1% of the population is privileged to. Noise narrates an encounter that he had with Antonin Roberts, a wealthy venture capitalist and his wife Ayn Rand, whom can be considered a part of this elite 1%. Through this conversation Antonin and Ayn describe their "modest proposal". Antonin and Ayn's solution to the economical issues we are faced with in this day and age is to allot an even greater amount of power to the "non-human" people- the corporations. As they claim that corporations are "the job creators".
Wealth identified how you lived to the people surrounding you in society. It was wealth that built you and destroyed you. Wealth overshadowed true love and beauty in The Great Gatsby. Those who had old money looked down upon those with new money, while those who were not rich was ignored by society. Wealth and the desire to be accepted by the society distracted the characters from making moral decisions.

One last note regarding cons is that many despise redistribution because they feel they are forced to give their hard earned money away and that it promotes laziness even. I personally find my view leading against income distribution for not only political reasons, but for economic reasons and how it can effect the aggregate
A profound image of a tilted balance scale hover over society as social inequality continue to exist in today 's time of era where certain people in the bottom of the hierarchy are cruelly challenged. Social inequality is the unfair distribution of opportunities and money considering the different social statuses of the people within a community where those in powers are the puppeteers pulling the strings to how the country essentially functions.

Currently, social inequality is a destruction that persists to prevail in society due to socioeconomic
