FDR felt that the American government was going to fix all the problems of the people and make their lives improve over time. His ‘New Deal’ plan really stresses this fact. He knew that the people could accomplish anything with just a little coaxing from their leader. Hoover thought that their needed to be less government control and the people had to do some things for themselves. He wanted them to be able to fix their problems themselves and let the government do more important jobs and have to worry about them less.
They all also believe they cannot be blamed for the death of Eva Smith and try to deny any contact with her. Arthur Birling is the main man in the family; he is the head of the house, Father to Sheila and Eric and Husband to Sybil. He is a well off business man and boasts about his advantages. “I’m talking as a hard headed practical man of business”. This is showing that he knows about his privileges and knows when to use them to try and get him and his family to get him out of trouble with the inspector.
He didn’t think he needed to ask Express the moral problem so that everyone will believe that his or her moral concerns have been recognized and included. * This is a moral problem because his actions of using company funds for personal use wasn’t economically efficient productive system, it didn’t produce more of the products that people most want an less use of the resources people least value, which is a definite value to society. In addition to this, his actions wasn’t informed to everyone. * Effective use of resources, What are the economic benefits? * What are the legal requirements?
He alternates between extremes of concerned family man, to being a selfish self-obsessed man. Many years of being a 'hard headed business man' has created the character that is displayed in this act. This even extends to the marriage of his daughter to Gerald Croft, suitably the son of another successful business owner. Obviously Mr Birling believes that Gerald Croft is an ideal husband for his daughter, not because he loves her (in fact he later shows the opposite), but because Croft's business connections complements Mr Birling's business. This is shown immediately when Arthur Birling states, 'You'll be marrying at a very good time.'

Delbanco’s interpretation that Thoreau creates world that we both need and fear is basically saying that Thoreau creates the perfect world that we would need to best survive and would strive the best in; however this world is something that we as people are not used to and have never experienced so we would be skeptical and scared when it is presented to us. I definitely agree with Delbanco’s statement about Thoreau’s world. Although it would be nice to love in a world where things were based on a man’s conscience rather than government, and the people played a bigger part in how things were ran; it would be something nobody is used to therefore no one would really know what they were doing and who is to say we can trust everyone’s conscience because there are some people in the world with bad consciences. In my opinion Thoreau’s world would only work in
The Cynical Smirk In this chapter Loeb discusses the cynical mindset we as a people have. He says cynicism is a self imposed blindness, a rejection of the world because we are afraid it will hurt us or disappoint us. He makes the argument that by our passiveness we allow big companies and government officials to do whatever they like. They believe that they are to big to be beat because we let them believe that. As long as we don’t push back, naturally they will continue to keep taking from us and pushing the boundaries.

He didn’t take criticism from others well and believed that his most significant adviser should be himself. Even when Edsel was named president of the company, internally, Henry refused to lose control and reportedly never truly stepped down. By depending only on himself, as time went on he failed to recognize the changing needs and wants of the consumers. The Model T became outdated in the 1920’s.
They are no longer the important aspect of his life as all focus shifts to himself to become important to others who seemingly don’t care about him. Helen’s response to a company friend stating, “I know how much you will miss him,” with “I already have” shows the significance of her and the family moving on from Phil and his workaholic self. Later, while attending Phil’s funeral, the company president asks, “Who’s been working the hardest?” and provides the audience a sense that nobody noticed Phil’s hard work and dedication to the company, making Phil appear invisible to the people he was intending to impress. By doing this, Goodman illustrates the
