People during this time period were unaware of mental disabilities which made it hard for them to get jobs. Lennie and George’s dream was to own their own farm but it was hard to attain because of money issues and Lennie's disability, “But he gets in trouble alla time because he’s so Goddamn dumb” (Steinbeck 41). George was the only one who knew about Lennie’s disability and he kept it a secret because if people knew, they would have never gotten a job. People with mental and physical disabilities were discriminated during the Great Depression because they were different, which made it hard to attain dreams. There were many protests that happened during the Great Depression involving people with disabilities, people would go to relief offices and demand for jobs, but the
Therefore, this is the direct result of the negative mentality and the unwillingness to acknowledge that he was not liable guilty, the corrupt justice system would not be resolved. It is apparent that although the reader may think that the human nature would want righteousness or and kindness, it goes to show how people allow themselves to be manipulated and lose their self control so
The ladies in the league “try to avoid inhaling the laden air,” of the poor’s homes. They cannot even breathe the same air simply because they have more money. This is similar to Sylvia's reaction to the expensive toy store. She did not want to step foot into the store because she felt as though she did not belong there. It was an innate reaction to feel out of place there for Sylvia.
Though it is not that most extensive nor the most generous in the world whose intention is to help the people in need. Another cause of spreading of evil is the ideological, social and economic pressure that has been prevailing in society for years.

Most of the time men are seen traveling alone, so when the owner saw that George and Lennie traveled together; he didn't trust George because most of the time people aren't seen traveling together unless the other person sn owes money. “ Well, I never seen one guy take so much trouble for another guy. I just like to know what your interest is.” The owner was suspicious because the time was set when the Great Depression existed. When people were greedy and lonely and that was one of the things Lennie and George tried to avoid. But sadly the intimacy of George and Lennie didn’t last long because of Lennie’s mental state.
Limitless illustrates this essence of individualism quite well – it is all about me. Just like Eddie, regular people in our culture are seduced by emphasis on self-worship and narcissism, material wealth, and attention seeking. Oddly enough, the individualism (which leads to selfishness) is a product of both modern and post-modern cultures.

It encouraged people to become selfish and self-centered, unwilling to contribute to the common good in a community, thus leading to loneliness and alienation.

What he is saying is that it is a waste of time to value capitalistic ideologies, for example, wealth and fame. He implies that we are so wrapped up in our unnecessary desires that it just clouds our minds with things that really aren't important. By giving into temptations one has lost the ability to have self control. Epicurus tells us that when it comes down to it we will always pick things that bring us pleasure. He says what we don't think about is that a lot of our decisions we have made in hopes of the pleasure we were looking for only caused us pain in the end.
In American society today, there’s debates centered around how to be happy and to stay happy. There is generally lots of ways to stay happy and make you happy but sometimes those objects that make you happy are temporary happiness. As the prominent philosopher John Mill is that people shouldn’t be so focused on being happy, that shouldn't be your main purpose in life. Mill’s argument about happiness is correct in that we shouldn’t be focused on making others happy or the world a better place, try to be more focused on our own happiness. According to the article “The Madness of Materialism,” by Taylor who says that people today believe that the key to happiness is money or buying things for yourself.
What the government does not take into consideration is the long term solutions to put youth in poverty to an end. Solutions such as long term housing, harm reduction services, substance youth treatment and mental health services.
