The combination of new dance steps, incorporated into old traditional dances encouraged the characters to find themselves and give them a sense of belonging. However a lack of understanding this was shown when Barry Fife, Shirley Hastings and Liz Holt all are repulsed by the idea of new dance moves, and find themselves doing everything possible to prevent them from succeeding once they have finally found themselves. This is shown when Shirley starts disowning her own son, Barry tries to do everything in his power to eliminate Scott from the Pan Pacific dance competition and also creates made up stories of Scotts Father, in order to convince Scott that he’s doing the wrong thing. However, this is once again replenished by Scotts Father Doug, supporting Scott and telling him to go after what he thinks is right. Another aspect of the film that nourishes belonging is Scott and Frans “love life”.
Holden decides to stay at a hotel instead where he can relax and not have to deal with anyone at Percy anymore. Holden feels sad every time he receives a present because he feels although he didn’t deserve it. For example, the ice skates his mother took the time to buy, and now he’s being kicked out. He feels like he let her down. Holden gives a fake name so he wouldn’t have to elaborate on his life to this woman.
“The preference upon the part of the refugee for plural leadership and decision” and “the resentment which succeeds the intrusion of strangers in relief leadership.” showed that people preferred to care for each other on their own instead then being instructed to do so, when they are left by themselves to do so. There always seems to be a sprinkling of the risk for belittling, or patronizing, for what makes them different. It removes the feeling of being civilized while caring for others that makes us act that way. “EMMA,” Emergency Managers Mutual Aid, born the fact that such services needed to be coordinated. Prince believed that the writings of a self-proclaimed “revolutionist” demonstrates that its the much more main- stream philosophy of a different era.
He also told them not to say the “N” word because it was disrespectful and if they said it around other people it was making its seem alright for there people to call them the “N” word witch is wrong.

Couch Carter pushed the boys to be there best and to be the best they had to learn to run a whole game so carter made them to running all the time.
However, in Fahrenheit 451 Beatty describes conformity as a positive aspect of society – he argues that conformity in behavior prevents violence and jealousy by restricting the gifted and talented people from their ability to excel, which is good in a way because then the others won‘t feel bad. However, the real problem in the situation Beatty describes is not the exceptionally bright child (when he is trying to show Montag the uselessness of books) but the group of people of those who submit to it. Unfortunately, this very situation occurs repeatedly in our society today. People who choose not to conform may be persecuted by the groups of people who submit into censorship, and through that act of persecution the people reinforce conformity of
Tables of the Potential Pilgrims As the potential pilgrims entered into the Tabard Inn, I examined them carefully, for their fates could lie in the hands of this decision. As they filter in, they pick tables, mostly based on social rank and standards. Little do they know that their performances and how they interact with each other would alter the ultimate decision made… The Squire got a queer feeling at the thought of this, for his heart had not long so desired this unlike his father’s. He dreamed of sweet music and jolly dancing, not of fellowship and salvation, but he dare not go against his father’s wishes. The Parson, on the other hand, was filled with glee, for this journey was one he had longed for since he could
The people there get so inebriated that they often do not remember whom they came with or even who their spouse is. They attend parties like this every weekend, with no regard for their health or how their behavior will affect others. Many of the guests were not even invited to the party formally; they are present because they feel as if their wealth entitles them to such freedom. “Once there they were introduced by someone who knew Gatsby, and after that they conducted themselves according to the rules of behavior associated with an amusement park” (Fitzgerald 41). These people come and go, discarding any rules there might be about attending events such as parties.
Despite the fact that it is possible for one man (as depicted in Gattaca) to have such a remarkable impact on his undeviating society, it is questionable whether those efforts are necessary and that perhaps we were categorized the way we are for a reason. “No matter how much I trained or how much I studied, the best test score in the world wasn't gonna matter unless it had the blood test to go with it.” This extract shows Vincent’s understanding that nothing could ever become of him unless he undertook some extreme changes in his lifestyle, however like his brother, Anton, later told him; he didn’t belong in that environment as an “invalid” and was better off returning to his normal regime. Nonetheless, as it states at the beginning of the movie “I not only think that we will tamper with Mother Nature, I think Mother wants us to." (Willard Gaylin) which implies that although we are all expected to follow the lifestyle that is set for us, there must always be that one man to keep society progressing, just as Martin Luther King Jnr said: “human progress is neither automatic, nor inevitable.” It will always be someone’s job to step out of their place of belonging, despite what others advise him, in order to enforce
Billy and his father Jackie have a very distant relationship, lacking communication. The audience can see that this is due to the recent loss of his wife and ineffective miners strike. Billy’s desire to learn ballet is hidden at the beginning from his father due to Jackie’s strong opinion against feminine sports. We see this when he says “All right for your Nana, for girls. No, not for lads, Billy.
