The Effects of a Changing Society Members of a society affect the social cultural and economic situation of an entire society by imposing what the majority perceives as normal on others In my opinion society cant change people Whenever possible people change themselves based on their perceived need to fit in In this country society is composed up individuals with cultural differences that does not make them less or inferior However the majority imposes what is standard for them as what should be standard for all others Therefore those that are not in the majority can be pressured into changing to blend in Some people are affected in a different way For example Esperanza in The House on Mango Street felt out of place but did not try too blend in Instead she was determined to dream about the way of life that she wanted She uses all of her experiences with society as food to nourish her dream of someday having her own house Esperanza was shy and too trusting Rachel and Esperanza were walking down the street in high heels when they were about 11 years old and they ran into a bum on the stoop of a tavern At first they thought he was a nice guy but when they were talking to him for about 5 minutes they realized he was a little strange and he scared them so they left and ran away P39 This is another example of how shy Esperanza was She stated in The First Job When lunch time came I was scared to eat alone in the company lunchroom This weakness allowed her to be gullible and vulnerable In Red Clowns Esperanza is betrayed by Sally because Sally told Esperanza that the circus would be a fun experience but instead she was raped Esperanzas viewed herself as unattractive unintelligent insignificant and out of place Such statements as skinny necks
