Lakshmi Perumalla. A Touchy Subject by Paul Fussell I agree with Paul Fussell with his argument in ‘A Touchy Subject’ that most of us live in a society of classes. Most of us believe that classes are divided by how much money people have, but nobody will want admit that they are in a certain group of classes. Some classes can also be divided by the type of jobs that certain people have. However, in America I did not see many differences in the classes. I live in a small town where everybody is nice to each other and do not show any obvious signs differences in the amount of money someone has.

A common man can’t even buy a movie ticket without any influence

In my country, however, if upper class people like Madoff made any mistakes, the government will usually not charge a penalty whereas, if a person from the middle class committed the same crime, the government will treat them in a different way. I really like that the American Government will treat all classes equally. A government should be able to punish people for committing a crime no matter how much money they have....
