In summary, the story The Discontented tries to portray the underlying material and intellectual differences between two members of different sociological classes of the Moroccan society. This theme is supported by the ground realities seen in the Morocco of today and yesterday. Quite a few renowned experts on Moroccan culture and politics have pointed the nature of class disparity through statistical and qualitative analysis. While the object of this exercise is not one of criticism but exposition, the changes imperative to the occasion are beyond the scope of this essay. It nevertheless remains the implied conclusion, the essence of which is captured succinctly thus:
“There are things the government could do to encourage class mobility. Education vouchers, for instance, would allow poorer parents to give their children a leg up, but the political parties and the teaching unions are dead against them. Until the government adopts policies likely to make society less, rather than more, rigid, Moroccan leaders would do well to keep quiet about the iniquities of their class system”.(Gross, 2006)
