Kelton shows a profound understanding of the laborers mindset, and about the vagueness that infects followers and rivals at the same time. He depicts those as well sure about themselves in a lesser gratifying color than those with uncertainties. It is seen that people who are against the rebellion are slaves to the American strategy of the winner-gets-everything state of mind and flattering to those people with more wealth simply since they possess more wealth. They don’t have a dissenter and dubious

F. Scott Fitzgerald has use characterisation to display the extreme moral indecency of the 1920’s New Yorker lifestyle. Through expert use of symbolism and metaphors Fitzgerald displays these characters immorality and the hollow, selfishness of their ambitions and their blatant lack of spirituality. However, the descriptions of Gatsby’s “extraordinary gift for hope” and Mr Gatz’ love for his son redeems the world from the
They’re humans too. Not only that, but also sees the society’s greediness of being wealthy. Through all of this, Huck finds his way to God. This shows that Huck has gained knowledge in himself and has established a more sophisticated individual by common
Yes, the American Dream was that every US citizen should have an equal opportunity to achieve success and prosperity through hard work, determination, and initiative. However, going about it the under the wrong circumstances and reasons, the desire to live this dream is bound to destroy you in the long run. With the help of the art piece,” Immigrants Arriving at Ellis Island” my understanding of the decline of the American Dream expanded. The reason being that they represent the aftermath of trying to live the American Dream life under the wrong circumstances and reasons. In a nutshell, the desire for something can cause people to be someone they’re not which doesn’t result in a positive outcome.
Other characters like Petruchio use their power in selfish ways, to get richer and even more powerful over more people in his life. Although power is almost always sought and won through wealth, its is also achieved through love. The relationship between Baptista Minola and his daughters
With freedom comes power and great responsibility not just for an individual but with everyone to whom that person has contact with, alongside to this it also brings self-righteousness and greed. David Brooks relies his accusations on vanity, in my opinion this makes complete sense. Humans have a predisposition to believe that the absolute truth is the one that they know or understand and there is no way around it. This behavior is only cemented when their leaders don’t lead by example and prefer to avoid informing their followers about important issues and historical facts that they should be proud of. From my research I’ve come to know that Americans are left in the dark so many times by their leaders that it should be no surprise when these people start to speculate about the truth because it is a natural human
“There are two kinds of pride, both good and bad. ‘Good pride’ represents our dignity and self-respect. ‘Bad pride’ is the deadly sin of superiority that reeks of conceit and arrogance.” John C. Maxwell, enlightens the reader about the faces of pride. One is beautiful and the other is ugly. This quote relates to the story “The Scarlet Ibis” by James Hurst because the narrator learns that pride isn’t always a good trait to have, it can harm the people you love.
The Negative Effects of the Cookie-Cutter System on Our Children In a time of such advancement where education and free will should coexist, creating an age of enlightenment. We are instead in an age where education has become a forced standard, limiting and constraining the very qualities that are possessed by the many entrepreneurs and leaders that are behind this revolution. Liberty and free flow are arguably what created the backbone for America’s Rags-to-Riches environment, where anyone could make a dream happen with hard work and good planning. The fact that this is being taken away from our children is not only harmful, but it is also disturbing and a detriment to America as a whole. Firstly, the current system is restrictive and damaging.
However, even though he momentarily recaptures their love and has numerous guests at his events, Gatsby remains unhappy and alone in the end. Doctor T. J. Eckleburg's billboard and the owl eyed man support the underlying message in Fitzgerald's novel. F. Scott Fitzgerald uses the literary element of symbolism in The Great Gatsby to prove wealth does not ensure happiness. Creating both the billboard and the man found in Gatsby's library, Fitzgerald indicates the wealthy are not always as society makes them out to be. Society claims money buys happiness, yet the symbols look into the lives of wealthy characters from the novel and show their sorrow and loneliness.
Most Americans share the same belief that money, fame, and material items will bring them happiness. While, also maintaining the idea that happiness is something everyone is entitled to and that each person is responsible for their own happiness. However, my definition of happiness differs. I define happiness as a state when life fulfills your needs and you are satisfied with your inner self. Happiness is contentment.
Gladwell also made a point that the place you are from, your background, and culture has a lot to do with your success. My point of view on this could go either way because there is an equal amount of things I agree and disagree with. There are many people on this world who were just plain out born successful. Either someone they know or their family were very rich. I believe this is how most people are indeed doing very well, but they still need to apply themselves in some way.
