Yet the work I do is not significant, I don’t have any rights, and no one in the inner party recognizes me, or most of the other citizens of London and even you the proles. I called all of you here today, to change all of our lives and to depose of the totalitarian government that has been lying to us, and that has been holding us back as a community. You don’t realize what is going on out in the world because you are too busy being distracted by Big Brother. The party gives you food, drinks, entertainment, casinos, etc which is everything needed to keep you distracted. They do this because they disregard you.
He did not truly make any friends through his wealth, and his money is no use to him now that he is dead. Gatsby dies alone with no one to think of him and his wealth did not improve his memory at all. Nick says: “I tried to think about Gatsby then for a moment, but he was already too far away, and I could only remember, without resentment, that Daisy hadn’t sent a message or a flower”(174). Gatsby does everything he could think of to get Daisy, his quest for wealth being intertwined with his love for her, but in the end his money did not make the difference. He is still left unfulfilled, his money unable to substantiate his love for Daisy.
It seems that Phil has no idea how to actually treat other people. His egocentric motives have robbed him of his general humanity and of his awareness to his fellow man. He selfishly goes through life only thinking of what’s best for himself. The people of Punxsutawney all enjoy the ground hog day festival because it has become a pivotal part in the town as a major tourist attraction.

In The Great Gatsby, Jay Gatsby is a man who started out with no money, only a plan for accomplishing his dream. He is blinded by his luxurious possessions that he does not see that money cannot buy love or happiness. His American dream has been destroyed by all of the wealth that surrounds him. For example, he throws huge parties for people, yet he has no real friends. When Nick comes to the East he realizes it's full of heartless and shallow people.
Although Jay Gatsby is kind in the story by throwing parties for everyone to come to he is not necessarily friendly to everyone. At his party, almost everyone had never even met Gatsby before. If he was friendly he would have made sure he met everyone at his party. A great person is one that people like and get along with and if Jay Gatsby isn’t friendly and kind there is no way that people can like him and get along with him. Individualism is the opposite of conformity which is exactly what Gatsby does through out the novel.
The reason the relationship is impossible is because the military man realized he could not devote himself to the "hard" life they live in that city, a life where they deny themselves pleasure in any form; even the food they eat was bland. The second daughter was pursued by a once famous musician, but in the same way deny herself his love, and then he left their little town. The early church in Corinth seemed to be on both sides of the issue, meaning while some people were allowing themselves any type of earthly pleasure because they were spiritual beings, so it did not matter what they did with their bodies, others would not allow themselves any type of pleasure like the people in the movie.

Instead, they live with no sense of superiority even though they could. Though apart from Gatsby, people from the new rich don’t necessarily behave better, and are just as insensitive as the old rich. For example, at Gatsby’s party they all attend with no invitation, and don’t even introduce themselves to their host. But when he dies, all of these people who came to his party are not able to make it to the funeral for one excuse or another, showing us the kind of people they were. When Gatsby couldn’t do anything for them anymore, they ran off.
He has no friends and no relatives here. He feels very lonely because he has no one to talk to. There are not many places for him to socialize with other people. As a result, he goes to church every weekend in order to meet with other Koreans and sometimes he goes to karaoke to relieve his pressure. After all, he thinks that America is not a good place for him to stay, because it's so different from what he had imagined before.
My American Dream: Fame, Success, & Equality Many people believe that the “American Dream” has become a goal and standard that we gage our lives on. This ambition in my thought is simple; to create a prosperous and happy life. The American Dream is my motivation to work hard, go to school, and stay on a good path in life.
