Priestley presents Inspector Goole as a socialist. A person who believes society should be fairer and distribute wealth of the greater good. Act 3 (p.g 56) "... Millions of Eva Smiths and John Smiths still left with us, with their lives, their hopes and fears... All intertwined with our lives..." And the opposite to Inspector Goole is Mr Birling a capitalist. A person who thinks they should make ere own way in life and money. They are more likely to look out for there selves, then other people. Priestley made Inspector Goole a socialist because there was a lot of change in the 1900s. WW1, votes for woman, working class becoming more dissatisfied with there poor wages. The inspector is also seen as someone who is trying to make everyone aware that you should be nice to everyone because you don't know what is happening in their life. And could lead to greater consequences. Act 3 (p.g 56) "If men will not learn that lesson, then they will be taught it in fire and blood and anguish..." Priestley uses the inspector as his mouthpiece. I hope this helped?!
