The essay “The Plot against People” by Russell Baker was a piece written for the New York Times in 1968. Russel Baker classifies inanimate objects into three categories – those that don’t work, those that break down and those that get lost. The ultimate goal of these objects is to frustrate and conquer man. The first category of infuriating objects is those that break down and they usually break down at the most inopportune time. For instance, a car will not break down when you pull into a gas station with everything you need handy to fix this car, but it will wait until you are in a car packed with luggage and travelers far from home or a garage.

Authority is a certain power to control someone else and conformity is a behavior following the policy, or the most common behaviors people do in society.

Walter Mitty from “The Secret Life of Walter Mitty” is a character who refuses to confront. Mrs. Mitty, his wife, usually nags him when she expects him to do what she wants, but he doesn’t. Even though, he knows that she wants him to match himself for her, he doesn’t argue with her and do as she tells him to.
It was because of Mitty’s imagination that his wife had such acrimony with him. “ ‘It’s one of your days. I wish you’d let Dr. Renshaw look you over.’ ” is what Mrs. Mitty tells Walter.

The car top is essential and the writers are barely able to get an hour outside of Lyon when they are stopped by the rain, which was the reason the Fitzgerald’s had left the car in the first place. I believe that the iceberg theory is at play here. Although it would be the logical thing to have a car top, they do not have one and are continually stopped on their way back to Paris. The car top can be seen as a representation of Zelda’s and Scott’s relationship, it serves as a distraction, constantly halting Scott from reaching his aesthetic vision as an artist.
