Bianco recounts the elements which made Walton so loved and innovative (e.g., omni-directional integration, self-service checkout and automated performance monitoring) and his corporation so reviled. He also delves into Wal-Mart=s battles against unionization, their fair trade practices and importation of foreign-made goods. Finally, he explores the real sociological cost of Wal-Mart=s low prices. Bianco=s approach in analyzing Wal-Mart is an interesting one. By combining hard facts and arguments with homespun anecdotes, he is able to capture the reader into sympathizing with his vitriolic attacks of the retail giant.
Happy complains, " I mean I can outbox, outrun, and outlift anybody in that store, and I have to take orders from those common, pretty sons-of-bitches till I can't stand it anymore" (1464; Act 1). Happy thinks that just because he is stronger than those who give him orders, he should be the one to give the orders. His father taught him that that was the way to success, and it is obviously failing for Happy. A second aspect of Willy’s American dream is material possessions. The Loman's do not have nice things, and Willy believes that what he possesses says he is not a success.

Although Apocalypse Now is an examination of the many terrors of society that are connected to the Vietnam War, Coppola plays much of his film off Joseph Conrad's novel The Heart of Darkness. Conrad's story focuses on Captain Marlow who is parallel to Willard and the Colonel Kurtz possesses many of the same characteristics in both works. In both works, the Captain is to find the Colonel, but Coppola makes a very significant change in his film. This significant change is the transition of Captain Marlow assigned to find Colonel Kurtz in the Congo, to Captain Willard assigned to assassinate Colonel Kurtz in Cambodia. The fact that Willard has now become an assassin of Kurtz is very important in Coppola's over all point.
