By stating his credibility, it would be easier for the audience to trust and believe Gatto's personal opinions about public education - that the lives of American civilians are manipulated by higher authorities in order to make sure that American citizens are dependent to the system and not independent thinkers. In order to further be seen as credible, Gatto uses expertise generalizations and figures that support his overall claim about public education.

As applied to modern times, the movie Dead Poets Society depicts the transcendental truths of self-reliance and non-conformity. This Philosophy of Transcendentalism can be viewed as having both positive and negative effects. One transcendental truth, the concept of trusting thyself, can be defined as the way an individual becomes self-confident thus freeing themselves from the enslavement of the conforming society. It is evident in the movie Dead Poets Society that Todd Anderson, a character lacking self confidence and self esteem, does not allow his true feelings to show. One afternoon the boys decide to sneak out of the institution and head to the woods where they would recite poetry in a hidden cave.

In spite of this, the CCP managed to secure victory due to a combination of their strengths and their opposition’s shortcomings. A principal reason for the success of the CCP was due to their political competence, and the consequent trust this inspired in the people of China.
