To have somebody lay down the law, set the limits, give something solid to stand on. That’s what we all want, really.” (Hinton 116) This shows that the Socs have the stereotype of being spoiled, wealthy, and privileged. However, most Socs hate their stereotype of being spoiled and attempt dangerous and illegal acts to anger their parents to stop their pampering. The parents of the Socs believe that it is their fault for their sons and daughters acting that way causing the Socs to think that the parents do not care about them.

When our tenant spoke of the villagers eating a bad character, it was exactly the same device. This is their old trick.” In the last entry of the diary, he still grasps on the hope that in the future, cannibalism could be eradicated from society despite his failure in trying to convince his brother and the other villagers. He also knows that he could do nothing as of his present condition to change the way they
It is the conscience that becomes one’s reference of their action. • General Example: A man tells the one who is more powerful than him to just kill him because he can’t kill another person since he believe that killing is a sin and is not the right thing to do. • Business-related Example: I am one of the employees and I saw my co-worker stealing money from the sales. She told me not to report her to our boss because she needs the money badly since her son is sick. It is my conscience that is bothering me because my co-worker is pitiful at the same time what she did is wrong.
Bob Ewell has put Maycomb and its people to shame. Everything he does, like having a job and then being too lazy to do it, resulting in him losing his job affects the family greatly. He doesn't care what people think because he lives in a dump and he basically expects everyone to pay for his bills by getting unemployment funds. Scout says, “ Mr. Ewell is the first person ever to lose a job from the WPA because of being lazy.” So after losing his job because of being lazy he gets money from other people, probably taxes, which isn't fair that other people pay the bills for him and his family.

An ' them people that owns it is gonna hang on to it if they got ta kill ever 'body in the worl ' to do it."

The men claim that the rich would do anything necessary to maintain their wealth, even if it means that the poor must suffer.

For the city folk who were starting out their own cattle business it could be a little more dangerous because everyone that they met could've been trying to take advantage of them. “At this time every turn in the west was meet with a cowboy trying to deceive some sorry new folk” (Smith 43). Some of the original settlers that were out there already hated most people that were still heading out because all the newcomers do is take up more and more land.

As there were several flaws in the colonial system of the Spaniards, it is safe to blame that such shortcomings of the Spanish government can be considered as the derivation of the Philippines’ fate. There was no encouragement in for labor and trade because of great deal of suspicion and mistrust. Several restrictions were imposed in trade which can stifle active trade in the country.
