He thinks the customers are difficult, dumb, and common. However, these are simply the ordinary people who live in his town, the people who are just like his parents. But Sammy thinks he is different, he does not feel like these people. He feels superior to them and this attitude makes him believe that he does not belong in this little store in this little town. Sammy passes judgment on the customers for being dull and unaware: “The sheep pushing their carts down the aisle…I bet you could set off dynamite in an A&P and the people would by and large keep reaching and checking oatmeal off their lists…” (457).
For example, he says to Dick he killed a ‘Negro’ called King with a bicycle chain, which isn’t true (see page 112). Then, Perry does not want to go in the house and kill the Clutters with Dick, but does not want Dick seeing him as a coward (see page 235). Also as a child, he was very sensitive. For Dick, killing represented easy money, or steeling without witnesses. For example, he first started steeling in small place like supermarkets event if he had money,, then, it trills him to kill, he was expecting from six to twelve person in the Clutters’ house (see page 234), and as he repeats over and over, no witnesses (see page 233).
By Sonia Wu The heroic Clyde ‘Sweet Feet’ Livingston’s generous gift to the homeless was STOLEN today!!! The riches of New York were to pay to eat food from the shelter and Clyde Livingston’s very own sneakers were going to be auctioned off, all the money was to go to the homeless shelter. Fifteen year old Stanley Yelnats a selfish Overweight troublemaker obviously didn’t care about ‘sweet feet’s generosity because today he was caught red handed running (or trying to run with all that fat weighing him down) away from the shelter with the sneakers in hand. Lucky we have such a great Police force to catch him in the act and bring back the sneakers to the shelter. We have full evidence that he stole the shoes because he has posters of Clyde all over his bedroom wall which shows that he is a fan and that he probably wanted the shoes.
This statement along showed how the everyday man was clawing for a way to be saved from the disease. Another instance of this would be the quote made by Samuel Pepys, English naval bureaucrat, Diary, 1665 (Doc. 13), “For nobody will dare to buy any wig, for fear of infection, that the hair had been cut off the heads of the people dead of the plague.” This quote shows how scared people were to purchase goods because it might have been dealt by those infected or those around others who had been infected. Not only did fear of the plague affect the local commerce, but other countries as well. An example of this would be when author Daniel Defoe, A Journal of the Plague Year, 1772, described international trade by stating “Trading nations of Europe were all afraid of us; no part of France, or Holland, or Spain, or Italy
They would both send out spies (secret police) to watch over the people they were supposed to be ruling Macbeth cared little about his people and was preoccupied trying to cover his tracks than anything else. Terminate anyone who stands in your way: In August 1940, Stalin decided to "take out" an old enemy who disagreed with his governing, Leon Trotsky, (the Macduff of Soviet Russia). The people were hungry: (NOT IN PRESENTATION) -The Great Famine was directly related to Stalin. Due to the Governments forced collectivization of crops, many authorities collected all seeds from farms leaving no seed to sow for the next year's crops. This led to decreased crop production and many starved as a result.
There is people committing crimes. That is only natural for people to become desperate and rob each other when it comes to survival and you have basically nothing you are going to fight to survive. There are people moving in groups and crowds to the north looking and hoping for a better life. In Earth 2100, it talks about rich oil companies not wanting to give up their power; in Parable of the Sower she talks about whole cities being run by companies. Natural causes, no active government, shortage of food and supplies due to depleteion of natural resources, are all reasons for society collapse in both Parable of the Sower and Earth
The Americans felt that they had to show the Germans what was happening here all along. They forced the villagers from the city of Dachau to come and help with the disposal of the bodies, which were scattered by the thousands everywhere. (Amacher G.) The townspeople would never be able to unsee these images. The soldiers were also tasked with the unfortunate duty of disposing of the bodies. Troops said that the stench would have been unbearable if the weather hadn't been so abnormally cold.
Usually the people that collect food stamps are the people that are unemployed which is fine because that is what food stamps are designed for they are designed to help people in need. But when individuals just collect the food stamps and do not go out and look for a job then they are just abusing the system. This year there was a big crisis in Louisiana regarding food stamps. The food stamp system received a glitch where for certain people they had an unlimited spending amount. When people in Louisiana heard about this they ransacked their local wal-mart clearing out the shelves complete.
One example I would see is migrant workers using food stamps at the market, yet driving new vehicles. Many would refuse to learn English and there was the “side of town” where I was not allowed to go because of how unsafe it was due to the crime from the migrant population. Alternatively,
