This quote shows how George has to baby him and take away things from Lennie because he doesn’t know any better due to his mental illness.

One reason why George made the wrong choice was because of Lennie's mental health issue. When you have a mental health problem, you can get better. Some people can't control how they're born.

George can help find Lennie some great help. "To combat these concerns, work programs and recreational activities were devised for patiems as the Kirkbride Plan had designed, patients were sleeping in wooden

The United States of America, where people go to find their dream; or at least what most are told. Both Benjamin Franklin and Frederick Douglass have impacted the concept of the American Dream in distinctive ways.

The men live in a completely different world than we do now, and honestly, I think that is one of the biggest factors of why I believe he made the right choice. If everyone still saw things as black and white I would most likely have a completely different point of view on this situation. George basically saw his past repeat itself when he found out Lennie harmed “another” woman. It is better to be safe than sorry, if George wouldn’t have been there for him to make the unthinkable decision to end his life, he most likely would have ended up being tortured and hated on by everyone around
