In today’s society, many people are faced with big audiences, or in a position where it requires them to win over consumers. In an excerpt from “Empire to Illusion” by Chris Hedges, he claims that the state of having fake qualities or being “artifice” is most essential when in a leadership position. In many ways, this wouldn’t and isn’t the most important skill to have in a position like this since there are other qualities to obtain people’s interest. To acknowledge the flip side, there are different leading styles, and also different definitions of success. These factors are valid to have, respect, and consider, but is deception and artificial personalities the best option? Even though deception may work for some leaders, Hedges makes it sound like deception is the only way to success when it isn’t.
When it comes to one’s dreams and aspirations, it’s commonly agreed on that following your dreams is something that most people should strive to do. After all, how would one stay motivated if they didn’t have anything to work towards? Yet, in some cases, having too much determination to accomplish your goals can end up having a negative effect. In any case, nothing handles this idea quite like Alexandre Dumas’ novel, The Count of Monte Cristo. In the novel, a young sailor named Edmond Dantes is framed by three men that all want something that Edmond holds. One of these men is the up and coming prosecutor, Villefort, who has Dantes imprisoned for life. These unjust actions bestowed upon Edmond begin his thirst for revenge, and eventually, he finds his revenge quite well. Unfortunately, Edmond ends up destroying innocent lives and the last part of his innocence in the process of getting that aforementioned vengeance. The only other thing that Edmond gets other than his revenge is the knowledge that having the undying determination to see your dreams come to fruition can be quite disastrous to yourself and others.

Although Olivia and Sir Andrew deceive themselves, the character who most thoroughly deceives himself is Malvolio. He has managed to convince himself that he is superior to all of the other workers in the house. He looks down on everyone else because he thinks that he is much better than they are. Being a puritan, Malvolio believes his ways are correct and that everyone should behave just as he does. He doesn't appreciate how Sir Toby, Sir Andrew, Feste and Maria joke and fool around. According to him, everyone needs to act more serious and proper. Just like Sir Andrew, Malvolio also thinks that Olivia wants to marry him. Since he's in love with her and has already persuaded himself that they're meant to be together, it was fairly easy
Caleb Martinez Self Deception Self deception is the process of misleading ourselves to accept and believe claims about ourselves as true or valid when they are actually false or invalid. Self-deception, in short, is how we justify false beliefs about ourselves. Although the thought of actively deceiving ourselves is not something one would be openly content with happening, self deception is something that can happen knowingly and intentionally and although it may be something that is beneficial in the short term, it could prove to be destructive in the long term.

The deception of appearance is also echoed in “The Importance of Being Earnest” with Wilde immediately addressing the point that “appearance blinds” through the main protagonists of Jack and Algernon with both of these characters assuming the name of “Ernest” in order to deceive Gwendolen and Cecily respectively. Wilde is explaining to the audience the shallow nature of the upper class by depicting how easy it is in constructing a deceptive appearance, with a simple name change allowing this. Fitzgerald also emphasises how a name can easily be used to deceive when he describes Gatsby as changing his name from “James Gatz” to “Jay Gatsby” in order to hide his middle class roots. “The fact that Jack, like Algernon, has been leading a double life…
Sedated for a few hours of real time, they spent fifty years in dream time constructing a world from their shared memories. When Mal refused to return to reality, Cobb used a rudimentary form of inception by reactivating her totem (an object dreamers use to distinguish dreams from reality) and reminding her subconscious that their world was not real. However, when she woke up, Mal was still convinced that she was dreaming. In an attempt to "wake up" for real, Mal committed suicide and framed Cobb for her death to force him to do the same. Facing a murder charge, Cobb fled the U.S., leaving his children in the care of Professor
