All Chris cared about was making people laugh that was his life’s motive. He fed off of other people’s happiness even if he was miserable.

Hornbeck's statement makes the reader understand that even the largest group or society can feel challenged or threatened by one single person.

Although Bertram Cates was not causing destruct and conflict on purpose, he became a threat to everyone around him because he did what he thought was the truth. He explored outside the lines of which he's always been taught, and unlike any other individual in his town, he went with what he believed.
