Individuals can, and usually do, live life differently than the rest of society. In some cases, these individuals will be extremely intelligent, and think that what society is doing is not as productive as they are. In other cases, these people will be very different than us and can be strange. Usually in a society, people live together, work together, function with each other, and do similar things. In this project we will see individuals who may have what they deem as success in "Cat's Cradle" and "Snow Crash", but we will also see others in "Utopia" and "Red Harvest" who use society to achieve their goals.
