The ones responsible creating these policies are the ones who want the lower class to suffer to gain money. Peace is granted to the upper class because of the power they have ignoring the poor. The state needs wealthy allies to become powerful and richer which the laws that are created limit the poor having no access to
Money can have many effects on a person. While lack of money can make a man miserable, wealth can do the same. F. Scott Fitzgerald’s “Babylon Revisited” shows that wealth can still cause unhappiness and therefore shouldn’t be viewed as an ideal. A person should rather work towards constantly improving oneself.
Some would agree that not everybody needs or wants money to be happy. You can meet a very poor family with wonderful values that still have the same happiness as someone with a mansion, but evidently you need money to afford things that do make you happy. If the world was all rich, nobody would feel left out or lesser than anyone, and that should be real

He ends up living next door to a mysterious, party-loving millionaire named Jay Gatsby. Nick and Gatsby live across a lake from Nick’s cousin, Daisy, and her husband Tom Buchanan. Through his portrayal of Gatsby, Daisy and Tom, Fitzgerald reveals that the upper-class society is corrupt from money.
For example, Jay Gatsby is a millionaire who earns his living by smuggling alcohol. This is a dishonest living but Nick overlooks it because he is a millionaire and he does not criticize millionaires.

The Great Gatsby written by Scott Fitzgerald, is a fictional literary piece set in New York City and Long Island during the 1920’s. The story follows a man named Nick Carraway and his first summer in New York. Nick lives next to a man named Jay Gatsby who throws lavish parties that hold an large amount of patrons (most of whom were not invited). The novel includes “love”, betrayal, death, and money. Women in The Great Gatsby are objectified by men, seen as only having value when of use to a man, as well as the universe punishes them when they do not obey a man.
He is a mysterious man who attained a large amount of money seemingly overnight. Many people attend his parties every single weekend, yet they have never even met the host. The only person who ever received an actual invite to one of these wild parties was Gatsby’s next door neighbor Nick Carraway. This lack of knowledge about the host leads to numerous rumors about him. People are saying that he is a prince from another country.
Pink suits at this time period did not correlate with wealth and by no means did they scream pretention which is what Gatsby really longed for. Fitzgerald’s use of the word “rag” also suggests Gatsby’s status as a common man, rather than a wealthy man. The way Fitzgerald weaves both “gorgeous” and “rag” together to describe the suit shows how careless Gatsby ended up treating the wealth he worked so hard to attain. Class
The third chapter from the novel The Great Gatsby by F. Scott Fitzgerald deserves the title “The Man behind the Myths”. There is a plethora of rumors and stories circulating about Gatsby, one of the main characters in this novel. He is a man of wealth; however, he appears to be unemployed and have no source of income. At his own parties, Gatsby is like a ghost unnoticably floating about the guests. The legends and actions of Gatsby are described and explored in this chapter, “The Man behind the Myths”.
The narrator, Nick is impressed by Gatsby in the beginning. He did not expect his mythical neighbor "The Gatsby" to be just around 30, tanned and very introverted. He thought if he met Gatsby, he 'd be middle aged, very outgoing and pompous. Gatsby hardly even participated in festivities at his own parties and stayed away from the crowds. He was nothing like Nick 's expectations.
