Atticus tells the jury he is sure that they will make the right decision, saying, “Now I am confident that you gentlemen will review without passion the evidence that you have heard, come to a decision, and restore this man to his family.” He is putting additional pressure on them to make a choice based on facts and not on prejudiced ideas about race. In the courts, all men are supposed to be equal. They are the fortress of justice, and must never be corrupt. Innocent people should not be punished, but instead justice ought to be restored to them. Unfortunately, despite Atticus’ logical and emotional appeals, the jury of Maycomb cannot be swayed from their terrible racist views and finds Tom Robinson

The Council doesn’t want anyone to be different, or to have different thoughts. Equality’s new society will have no rules from the old society because he cultivates individuality, he loathed the old society’s rules, and he knows what it means to be an leper.

He life has so far been trying to keep a steady job while caring and looking after Lennie, who easily gets them kicked out of almost every place they go to. “An’ you ain’t gonna do no bad things like you done in Weed, neither,”(Steinbeck 8).

The Transcendentalists believed that one did not need material items to be happy, and that it was best to live a simple life. That view was very different from society’s beliefs on life.
