There are a number of questions here. You need to submit them one at a time. In general, Atticus uses his keen intelligence and mastery over reason to try to make a difference. Atticus tries to do the right thing for both Tom and the town. Mr. Raymond has resigned himself to living a life away from bigoted white people. He does not try to enact change rather than just live his life away from bigotry.
