Marx believed that the base of a society lied in the economics and that the owners, who were making profit, were over the workers/laborers. This was wrong because the profit owners would create a “superstructure” that was made up by the state military, police, education, religion and ideology.

George and Lennie have a dream to live a life of independence and happiness, but the lack of power and weight of oppression they receive from Curley, the boss’s
