All decisions made in the story were crucial in every way since it went over real life situations. One character who’s decisions were influenced by the gang members called the Greasers and the environment he lived in was Johnny.

Winston’s diary is a symbol of his suppressed desire for rebellion, his entries as well only speak of his furry and his pain; emotions he is not allowed to express or act upon. For a moment he was seized by a kind of hysteria. He began writing in a hurried untidy scrawl: theyll shoot me i do not care theyll shoot me in the back of the neck i dont care down with Big Brother they always shoot you in the back of the neck i dont care down with Big Brother — on freedom of thought and freedom of opinion (Orwell, 1984 21).

This book showed that even though violence seems easy and, you can easily sort things out with a fight it will come with worse consequences. The greasers always fought, and the Socs always jumped but in the end we saw how both of these resulted in two deaths, and a bad fire. In the end both the socs and greasers both realized that fighting was bad, and throughout the book we see ponyboy question why he fights. Johnny is proof that we shouldn’t fight because earlier in the book we learn that he was jumped by Socs, and since then he was always different.
