If you want something in life you have to go out and get it, no one will give it to you for free. Carnegie was the term for a notion promoted by many successful businessmen that their massive wealth was a social benefit for all.

The governing authorities again like to use culturally significant figures in the tales of innovation and invention and discovery. Even with such advanced politics and thought, a class distinction still persisted, and though they had seen the benefit of all this technology, there were those in the upper class who felt it was beneath them to use such tools in any way. T Innovation was of great value to both the Han and Romans. The Han placed a higher attribution to culturally relevant creators. For example, Huan Tan, an upper-class Han philosopher wrote in New Discourses (Document III) of an emperor of myth inventing and refining the pestle and mortar for all people.

They are bitter because the author didn’t say what he was required to say. The author improvised the speech with his own ideas and talents, yet the Brotherhood considers it to be improper.

Perhaps, the author just wants to be free, saying whatever he feels to be right and careless about following a standard. “I could glimpse the possibility of being more than a member of a race.” (308) The author has devoted himself to the betterment of his people, either by going to college/ accepting the white way of life or speaking in front of other people.
Rockefeller was no different. He was one of the most controversial businessmen of his time. By the early 1880’s his company the “Standard Oil” controlled 90% of America’s refineries and also a huge market of the world including Russia’s (p.17, Levine). Now many people today blame Rockefeller for his vast monopoly.
