The Iron Heel Essay

806 words - 3 pages

Summary: The Iron Heel is a novel of and for the great working class. Its inner idea of laborer and boss working and helping each other through the social and economic mountains of equality will always try to be enforced from years to come, but sadly, will never happen. It just can't happen. Boss's rules over workers, enslaving them and working them to the limit and this is always how it shall be done. There is no other way around this, everyone has someone of a higher power around them; student to teacher, teacher to principle, principle to the board, board to mayor, mayor to governor, governor to president and finally president to the people. One man cannot appease all. This is where law comes in. If law were not present, all cultures, government and way of life would crumble. It would be man against man, brother on brother until the inevitable Extinction Level Event.This is why I disagree with Ernest Everhard.

He wants the upper class to experience what the workers go through everyday. With his brilliant wit and first hand experience, he triumphs past hundreds of debates and analysis's for a personal "high." He doesn't do this for himself but for the people of course. After a brush with this character in the beginning of the novel, our narrator is somewhat drawn or fascinated with him and sees through his ignorant mask. She arranges speeches, talks and debates for this magnificent man just to see him swat and swallow these reputing creatures so he can have his fun with them. At first she is another disbeliever but he sends her to research and understand these poor people. This is where we meet Mr. Jackson. Mr....
