In the end, however, Nick was unable to attain riches. He moved back to the home he left, and he was unable to stay with Jordan.

The Brothers faced this challenge in their, largely, futile attempts to achieve middle class status through achieving a proper education. Macleod highlights that, historically, the “overall structure of class relations from one generation to the next” is extremely reluctant to change(4). The Brothers evince this in their inability to earn work with greater wages than their parents, forcing them to live in working class neighborhoods like they did. Although some of the Brothers did manage to obtain middle class work, they struggled to keep those jobs as they either got laid off or were pressured out believing that they just didn’t fit in the workplace environment- though this is largely in fact due to differences in cultural capital, knowledge, disposition, and skills passed on generationally, that arise from the different upbringings of the supervisors and the Brothers. Moreover, differences in cultural capital makes the structures of inequality extremely stable as working class individuals struggle to match the syntactic and lexical constructions of the upper socioeconomic classes.

Later on when the tables turned once again during the cultural revolution it wasn 't good to stand by being a war hero or a person of power.
Meche lives with the fear in the back of her head that she will suffer a similar fate as Pedro’s mother. Pedro tried to become a better person but at every turn was pulled back by the negative people around him. Pedro is the only character in the movie to show ambition and a want to try and be or do better but his circumstances were to daunting to overcome. While the movie brings home that the solutions at the time were not working and the people were hopeless, Lewis brings home the fact that this point of view was what keeps down the poorer people. With no hope and little or no attempts at having a better life made what chance do any of them have but to repeat the cycle of
Sobel worked long, hard hours for very little pay. Feld realizes, “Yet [Feld’s] conscience bothered him for not insisting that the assistant accept a better wage than he was getting [but] he was not interested in going elsewhere” (51). Feld tries to understand why Sobel is willing to work for such a small paycheck, and he concludes, “... no doubt because of his terrible experiences as a refugee, [he] was afraid of the world” (51). However, Feld soon realizes that this assumption is false. Ater he first speaks to Max about meeting Miriam, “... he was startled by a violent clanging and looked up to see Sobel pounding with all his

Making it very clear to him that they are different and, therefore, won’t get along with each other. Being barred from relationships based on differences was the biggest source of frustration for Pip before he received his great expectations.

It was Pip’s anger towards the system and determination to change others’ perception of him that got him where he is. Pip tries to ignore this part of his life and isn’t able to see the pain that the convict feels even though he had previously felt the same
The Battle of Yorktown was a turning point.

When the Benedict Arnold one of America’s most gifted officer turned out to be a traitor the American Morale took another blow.

Subsequently, it can only be assumed that the intrinsic value of human life is adjustable. Although it is nearly worthless, and sustaining the life of others was purely a strategic move on Vladek 's part during the war, the same could not be said for after the war. The saving of possessions was a necessity for survival during the war, whereas he learned to use his wealth stingily and it made him rich after the war. The other behavior he learned during the war, treating people according to the value they would have during war times, left him bankrupt. He was lonely, of course, because he hadn 't discerned the new effects of his war-learned behavior and ideologies- which ones still did him good, and which ones would lead to his isolation if he refused
