He had no common sense, and he had no business going into Alaska with his Romantic silliness. He made a lot of mistakes based on arrogance. I don’t admire him at all for his courage nor his noble ideas. Really, I think he was just plain crazy,” shows that Shaun believes Chris had no common sense in his doing for leaving society for the wild. I agree with Callarman’s position of thinking “ he had no common sense” and that he was “bright and Ignorant” because Chris thinks he did not have much to offer in his society, ditched all his possessions to take a trip into the Alaskan Wilderness and did not have much common sense or survival skills.
Nature did not care if these men live or not. One of them named Billie drowned at the end of the story. He was the hardworking man from the whole crew. But nature seems very indifferent to him and for his struggle. According to the narrator, “When it occurs to a man that nature does not regard him as important” (Sec 6); this quote shows nature does not give any importance to people.
He also broke his bicycle chain while testing the windmill. He looked for another chain to use that was stronger. The last way that he demonstrated determination was that people didn 't believe him, and he ignored them. People kept on calling him crazy because he would be in the dump all day but he ignored them, and kept building his windmill. When William’s windmill started to work, and the crowd was surprised William said “I told you I wasn 't mad.” (Kamkwamba 201) William didn 't just demonstrate determination; he also demonstrated
Crooks is not used to getting visitors, so Lennie coming into the barn was a surprise. At first, Crooks says, “‘You ain’t go no right to come in my room’” however, he finally says, “‘Come on in and set a while...Long as you won’t get out and leave me alone, you might as well set down’”(Steinbeck 68-69). Racism creates a segregation at the ranch which leaves Crooks all by himself in the barn, which can sensibly make him lonely. The loneliness that racism creates makes life really boring for Crooks because he rarely has someone to talk to. To add, Crooks mentions that he has learned over time that “‘If [he] say something, why it’s just a nigger sayin’ it’”(Steinbeck 70).
The Cowardly Lion’s inability to make a dent in the Tin Woodman exemplifies Bryan’s inability to make a dent in factory worker support: “He struck at the Tin Woodman with his sharp claws. But, to the Lion’s surprise, he could make no impression on the tin” (p. 51). Focusing only on free silver and ignoring foreign policy ended up being detrimental to Bryan’s campaign. In the 1900s, foreign policy with China and the Opium Wars emerged as the main issue. Corresponding to how the Lion “fell asleep” in the poppy field where opium grows, Bryan too “fell asleep” in a political sense by never focusing on this issue, and ignoring foreign policy.

After being judged and treated terribly for so long, he is racist to himself. This act of self-racism/self discrimination shows the reader how unequal Crooks feels. Another key factor is that he is not born into slavery like most African-Americans at the time. This quotation shows that Crooks is not like what he calls the “southern negro.” Now at the ranch, he is looked at like a southerner, being the only black man on the ranch. For his skin being a different color from the others, he is secluded into his own room, he is not allowed to play cards or go out with the guys, and has no one to open up to or speak
