Thesis statement: who is the most powerless of neorealism character all in the
bicycle thief and how does family relationship get affected by poverty?
The relation between social groups and social institutions. Here in bicycle
thieves we have a poor and rich community. Within this social level the community
have middle-class and lower class. All of them have different deal. To illustrate, the
middle-class who can enjoy leisure time. The lower class unemployed, neorealism
reflex the most powerless without a employed can never have security. And when
there is no security, there can as well be no future. Let us look at the period of the
post-World War II Rome and what happened to them during this time. No one can live
safely and happily without a work. Every man's family like Antonio Ricci, business,
and safety depend upon the protection from the community. The stronger the
community, the more opportunities for the poor to develop.
What should the father do for his family? Most of all, all the social groups, no
matter their level, all the people should cooperate to protect the unemployed in their
community, and defend the social institutions gap against inequity class distance. In
World War II Rome, Social level difference can not bind the people together and
promise each person value are same. The poor social status also look for some
opportunity from unequal social level.
If the lower class like Antonio Ricci lacked power, then he could not say what
he felt. He would be controlled by upper-class. On the other hand, if the policeman
who fail to enforce justice then society would be disorderly and violent. Life would be
controlled by poverty. Therefore, neorealism is important to have both justice and fair.
In post- World War II Rome, the unemployed, the community the thief belongs to and
Antonio Ricci family is the most powerless of them all. Neorealism reflex
unemployed is seen everywhere. What will be come of Antonio Ricci if things
continue this way?
In the economy things have been going from bad to worse. The poverty of the
poor has forced many family to desperate ways of searching, including seeking help
from the fortune-teller and stealing. But this is inevitable in a different social level.
Antonio Ricci is becoming more desperate every day, as neorealism are given more
critiques on the social class. A powerless working class need a brighter future awaits
them all as long as they work together. I believe this holds much truth. If the
community to emphasize poverty and enforce justice lives, the working class like
Antonio Ricci will find it easier to live with struggles.
Antonio Ricci believe that reality and ideals are different. Reality is not
Antonio Ricci and his ideals are not his reality. When Antonio Ricci ideals not come
true it is not a reality. The search process is right or wrong to think other wise. From
the right places like police station and market, to more and more desperate ways of
searching including seeking help from the fortune-teller and stealing. The tragedy is
the most powerless of the poor. But no ideals can come true without action to reject
poverty. Many people have good ideals but fail to carry them out. Only through
struggles effort and perseverance will let the lower working class like Antronio Ricci
ideals come true. From the search process people can learn something about the
chaos of post-war Rome through desperate community. If we equate the middle-class
with leisure time and the lower-class poverty with despair. We can see how ironic
each class with a major images.
Social groups and social institutions may have quite similar qualities. On the
other hand, it is also true to say that everybody in the world is different from
everybody else because they are not exactly the same. No two class, anywhere, are
exactly alike and no two institutions exactly the same likes and dislikes. Each has his
strong and weak points. In order to live fully and happily, each of social level needs to
fortify their good points and overcome their poor ones. The bicycles and their parts,
crowded buses and the crowds on the street; the wooden ladder; the pawnshop with
piles of pawned goods. Therefore, the poor are not continually discontented
themselves and community. There are two types of people in the world. Although
they have not equal degrees of wealth and the other comforts of life, one becomes
happy, the other becomes miserable. This arises from the different ways in which
they consider things, persons and events, and the resulting effects upon their minds.
One is said to be optimistic and the other pessimistic about everything around them.
Antonio Ricci who are to be happy fix his attention on the struggles of things.
Desperate do affect Antonio Ricci, see influence his ideas of right and wrong more
than people may realize. When I see pictures presenting kinds of poverty or certain
ideals in either a fair or an unfair community. So let the things I learn from Antonio
Ricci be suited to his own struggles way of living. Life as happy as you make up
your minds to be.
