He knew that Lennie would never be able to survive with the guys on the ranch chasing him and wanting to kill him. George sacrificed the dream of the farm and his only friend so that he could die knowing that George was not mad at him. When striving for the American dream, there are many things that must be sacrificed along the way. Many things that must be understood, one of them being the fact that the dream could very well be impossible, and the work ethic that must be used to reach the dream. These are things that all of the characters in Of Mice and Men have to go through, along with every single one of
Squealer Squealer was one of the main reasons that the farm failed because he was the one always telling everyone lies about what was happening on the farm. He was basically one of Napoleon 's servants because he did whatever Napoleon would tell him to do. Most of the animals were very unintelligent so they would believe everything Squealer would say to them. Squealer was partially responsible for the failure of the farm because he told the animals that Mr. Jones would come back, he would “help the animals remember” something they forgot, and told the animals the pigs were working when they were not. Squealer would tell the animals that Mr. Jones would come back if the animals started getting skeptical about something.

Rainsford became “sick and numb” when he thought about being captured (Connell 33). Now, whenever Rainsford even thinks about hunting, he will be reminded of this traumatic experience and will not hunt.
