It is not the fact that he does not love Maggie it is that he can not love Maggie due to loss of attraction. He is denying himself for Big Daddy only to not disappoint him because he is the son. He loves Big Daddy and to tell him the news while he is on his death time would leave Brick to the thought of Big Daddy dying in disappointment through his son.

It’s because the world he lives in has affected him in such a way to be like this. In Kurt Vonnegut’s Harrison Bergeron, certain devices weigh down the main character in order to equalize him with the others. This short story is dystopian; an offshoot to Orwell’s utopian world. Winston too is weighed down by his own society; he is forced to be a lesser version of himself, all for Big Brother. They don’t do anything to physically change him, but if he is thought to break the rules or is simply too smart for his own good, off to the Ministry of Love.
The novel Lord of the Flies, is a great example of how civilization is the only reason we keep ourselves from doing certain things. The novel, “Soon becomes a parable about the inherent evil in human nature, reflected in the natural brutality of these boys once they are away from civilization.” (Junior). People's perspective of others judgement holds them back. Along with people's morals, it makes them really think about their decisions that are selfish instead of not putting in society's perspective and doing it in a blink of an eye.This not only applies to adults but also children, which can be seen in the novel. Golding “...asks how superior we are to savages and he points to the superficiality of our civilization; indeed it seems to be powerless against the innate brutality of man, against his fear which is in fact against the innate brutality of man, against his fear which is in fact the expression of the evil that pervades the world.” (Michot).
