This is when the poor finally ceased to be dominated by the wealthy.The incessant struggle that the lower class faced when the wealthy controlled everything forced them to begin a revolution so that they can finally take control of their own lives instead of living to please the wealthy.Because of this unequal treatment of the classes and the resentment that the poor held for the wealthy, the two classes could not continue to co-exist.Throughout the novel, the wealthy controlled every part of the country’s government and therefore, they controlled the country as a whole until the day that Esteban Trueba lost the election and the socialist party came to power.With a socialist victory over the conservatives, there was room for the differen...

According to Macionis, family is a “social institution found in all societies that unites people in cooperative groups to care for one another, including children” (2009:375).Sociological relationships change to fit the people involved in them, so it only makes sense that family groups would differ by location.Hard work, compassion, and communication are components that can be seen in almost any successful family at any time period.There were a variety of different family types that coexisted or competed in colonial America (Coontz 2005: 27).The success rates of a family, however, are much deeper than economic or government issues.

There undoubtedly was a selection of the wealthy elite who would often use their wealth for self-aggrandisement rather than supporting the state – but this has to be expected in all societies.The times in which the wealthy were able to exert a certain level of power were inevitable blowbacks to a society where there was a competition for money and a competition for power.The power that the wealthy had and used was not enough to taint a relatively sophisticated political system and where corruptions of that system occurred, personal power-grabbing was often shrouded in popular support and the use of wealth for personal gain was seen as an inevitable circumstance of self-preservation.Therefore, often the wealthy had a positive effect on bo...

Gatsby doesn’t tell everyone immediately the way he became rich, he rarely talks about it.Therefore, Fitzgerald portrays Gatsby in such ways that fulfill the characteristics of a man living in West Egg.Also Nick, the narrator, he lives in West Egg, therefore he must have some sort of wealth, however he doesn’t mention it or clarifies exactly where he got it from.Gatsby would be considered the “new money”, while people such as Tom, which come from a wealthy family, is the “old money”.Gatsby is characterized as a man that is wealthy and loves to share his “happiness” with others by hosting numerous parties which are full of expensive drinks such as “Chartreuse” (Fitzgerald 88) held in his luxurious mansion.

Ultimately, both of the authors question the purity behind the American definition of success.F. Scott Fitzgerald beautifully portrays a wealthy upper class society in The Great Gatsby, which has extreme corruption, hidden by it’s allure, while much of this upper class is pompous and selfish, as well as being so heavily judgemental that is it difficult to be accepted by these people.The play and novel signify the corruption among wealthy people, and why it is a danger.Particularly, American success, since America is a classist society that places much value on wealth.Social power is glorified throughout American society, but Miller and Fitzgerald attempt to prove that glamor and elegance is not all that matters to lead a meaningful life....

Thanks to wealth, Cephalus is (at least in his own point of view) able to live a life without lies, without deception, and without debts.Cephalus keeps his desires at bay – he works hard, and he enjoys himself, but always manages to hold onto most of his money.He feels that if he can go to his next life not owing anyone a penny, it will lift a burden on his soul, in a metaphysical sense.Because Cephalus values wealth, he seems to put a heavy emphasis on the repayment of debts (and avoidance of debt in the first place as well) in his ideal of justice.He doesn’t strive for unlimited wealth, but still values that wealth he has, and likely behaves ethically and morally for that reason.
