I. Culture is made up of beliefs, social norms, material traits of a race, religion, and social groups are in decay western culture. Meaning, western culture is experiencing a prolonged decay, notwithstanding its technological innovations, announced patience, equality of opportunities, and constant striving to make everyday existence more safe and comfortable. Some down falls are: common concern about looking wealthy instead of being wealthy, freakish art, and the widening inequality between the rich and the poor.

This shows us that Gatsby's involvement with bootlegging as well as other illegal business causes him to be engulfed with greed and power which distracting him from his main goal of winning daisy back. This all shows us that wealth can change and corrupt individuals and put them in a disillusionment no matter where they came from or why they wish to obtain it.
