The Outsiders

see details

Ponyboy and Cherry talk about the ways in which the Greasers and the Socs are alike. Ponyboy comments, "We all saw the same sunset." Think about this statement on a more global scale. How are we, in the United States, like people in other countries? Do we share the same problems?

Sure people in the U.S.A share similar problems. Themes of love, greed, power, envy...are universal. Human nature never really changes, that is why Shakespeare is forever popular! If you think about it battles aren’t fought over religion, they are fought over power and control. Just like the Greasers and the Socs, people around the world seek to belong. Part of that belonging means power and control over others they see as oppressive.
