Name: Instructor: Course: Date: ‘The man who quit money’ by Mark Sundeen It is rare to find a person who abandons a lavish lifestyle to live a simple life that is characterized by abstinence from all forms of pleasures and indulgence. In the book 'The man who quit money' Mark Sundeen tells the story of Daniel Suelo who choose to abandon his lifestyle and has been in the Cave since the year 2000. Suelo is one of the few characters who have distanced themselves from worldly pleasures including money. This write up will explain the factors that motivated Daniel Suelo to quit money. Daniel was raised in a religious background where he learnt a lot about Christianity and the teachings of Jesus. He also went a step ahead to learn the basics of other types of religions including Buddhism Islam Hinduism Judaism and Sikhism. Suelo states that the religions is inevitable. Most people who work extra hard live a good life since they have enough money to keep them going. Virtual simplicity lifestyle means living from hand to mouth which is a lifestyle that most people would not love. Virtual simplicity exposes the low income population to the fear of not having enough financial protection. Living the VSM lifestyle or the Suelo's way will bring more struggles to people with families. Works cited Davis Lisa S. "FREE LUNCH."

Essay 4 (your book) --4 pages Choose the appropriate question for the book you read this quarter. All of the book options will involve explaining / interpreting/ responding to some central issues in the book, as well as doing a bit of outside research. This essay will have MLA citations and include a Works Cited page, listing your book and 3 other sources. Two of your sources should come from EvCC databases, which you will learn about in our library orientation. We will go over MLA documentation in class, but be sure to check the links on MLA Documentation and Works Cited on Canvas. The Man Who Quit Money Explain why Daniel Suelo chose to “quit money”: what philosophical/ religious/ecological reasons or motivations is his lifestyle based on, and what in our current consumerist, capitalistic society is he also reacting against? --Quote passages, show scenes and events to illustrate Although few of us would choose to live as Suelo has, a good number of people have joined the “Voluntary Simplicity” Movement. Find out what this movement is about, and also find some criticism of this VSM. Then respond to what you see in both Suelo’s and the VSM lifestyle as being viable, possible, realistic, or worthy of emulation on a larger scale (beyond living in caves, of course)—or as unrealistic or misguided. Notes: -- It is critical to show and discuss the relevance of specific scenes, characters, and events in the book as they relate to your question/ thesis. About half of your essay should explain issues in the novel, and the other half should focus on the research part. --See the Peer Review guide for Essay 4 as a check of your own paper before you turn it in. --Give authors’ full names and then refer to them by last name after that --Underline or italicize book titles. --Cite quotations and paraphrases with a page number in MLA style. Essay 4: Admittedly, the library orientation was a little boring, but here are some take-away points to remember: --From the many databases available to you, just limit your search to a few of these: ProQuest, Academic Search Premier, JSTOR, CQ Researcher, and Opposing Viewpoints in Context. The first three are useful, general databases on almost anything, and the second two offer differing viewpoints on current controversial issues. If you're reading Grapes of Wrath, U.S. History in Context would be another useful database. --Use Boolean searching (combining search terms with AND/ OR) to narrow/ broaden your search. For instance, if you are reading The Circle and want to research privacy issues, just typing in "privacy" will get you about 10,000 results. Try combining it with another term/s: "Privacy AND tech companies" or "privacy AND consumers AND tracking" etc. I'll review a few more search tips next week. Essay 4 is due the last day of class, 3/15. 2 of the data bases sources SHOULD come from EVCC DATA BASE www.everettcc.edu Last name : Lee Student ID : 804400747 If u need further details let me know. I just sent email to my instructor for more information about this essay. if it's possible tell me how will be the essay be before you start to write the whole thing. It should be critical thinking, not bring all the sources and gather up in essay. Instructor wants to support the critical point made by 'own' by using quotes, and other sources - Cite them. I dont want ANY type of sources put it in essay. Not even the concepts. You can use databases, but please explain with ‘own’ words. U can quote, or cite them, but concepts should not same. I’ve got the failed one for example as an attach file. Please remember im not very fluent in English, so I need it to be done like an international student who tries to learn English as a second language. www.nyjournalofbooks.com This is the website the other person used to write the essay, all were plagiarized. Well, its not plagiarized, but paraphrased, it doesnt have any personal thoughts. He just brought all the concepts from that, same quotes, same explanation, or review.
