Local markets typically bring in less money than the average store or supermarket. The larger industries are able to keep up with the ever changing regulations, and local farm owners fall so far into debt they are forced to sell their property. Pollan’s essay on the contamination of our nations’ food is very insightful. He has excellent examples, but far too much detail. As any writer knows a proposal writing must contain a solution.
another self-strategy was the alliance exchange making farmers focus on a central purchasing house. all these actions failed because farmers were too poor or in debt due to prior sales. the system was poorly capitalized, prices were too high for farmers, they ended up being victims to business causing the uprising of boycotts. the subtreasary plan succeed this plan helped farmers by giving them loans in order to grow and sell crops. The back and forth communication and strategies not only lead the famers to a political path but it also began the start of the populist party.
He provides a historical allusion to the Dust Bowl in which he says it “was caused not by drought but by the transfer onto the Great Plains of farming methods that were suitable to wetter regions” (Sanders 56-59). This demonstrates the negative results that come from migration because the farmers had originally lived in a climate that could tolerate the excessive farming, but when they moved, they did not account for the climate change, so they ended up hurting both themselves and their environment. Through the expression of the negative results of the mass migration in history, Sanders impacts his audience by invoking a sense of fear within them, so the audience is more likely to support Sanders position. The audience does not want to harm any aspect of their life, so a greater motivation to remain in the place where they have established their roots is create. The impact on the environment and one’s way of life causes Sanders to appreciate “People who root themselves in places” (Sanders 73) and believe that “By settling in, we have a chance of making a durable home for ourselves, our fellow creatures, and our descendants” (Sanders 78-80).
Have you ever had a dream that seemed almost impossible? Of Mice and Men by John Steinbeck shows the destructive imbalance of social power structures in American society. The importance of idealized relationships between men, or the social structure, is proven by the many characters that live on the farm. Because of this unspoken structure, multiple characters have goals and dreams to have a better life, but George and Lennie prove the impossibility of the “American Dream.” Think of social structure like this: superintendent, principal, teacher, student. This is an example of a social structure in our everyday lives.
The Inhumanity Caused by Weaknesses The author Dean Koontz once said, “...the most identifying trait of humanity is our ability to be inhumane to one another.” Although there are many hopeful aspects in people, the inhumanity of people is inevitable. In the novel Of Mice and Men by John Steinbeck, Lennie Small and George Milton discover the hardships and the hope in life as migrant workers during the Depression era. Though their hope for a better life dwindles throughout their journey, Lennie and George’s dream of owning their own farm help to distract them from their harsh reality of despondency. Steinbeck reveals the bitter nature of mankind due to weakness and vulnerability through his use of symbolism, characterization, and imagery.
Towns people would have money, bathrooms, and a better life while farmers on the outside had to rely on their own sources to live off of. Farmers failed to follow a new technique of farming which would help prevent wind erosion during the drought. Dryland farming would benefit farmers by using drought resistant crops and conserving moisture. Wheat, corn, and even watermelon were crops that would be grown. The method of dry farming would’ve benefitted the farmers in need of crops but the failure to acknowledge the technique had devastated farmers from all around in arid lands.
However animal farm is about animals rebelling against the farmers which seem to be impractical, gives a greater understanding to prove what Communism is. This can be shown once you read the book. Animal Farm is displayed as the animals being humans and the government. The animals felt that they were not being treated right, so they began to rebel. Animal Farm also talks about what it’s like to live in a communist world.
Railroad were corrupt and favors the larger business like steal while having small buisness like farmers pay higher rates. Oliver H. Kelly started the organization that wanted gathered farmers together for dances and meeting. Eventually farmers began to notice the injustice of the railroads and demand change. Grange Law attacked the railroads and demanded fair charge for all. This lead to the Wabash Case in 1886 stating that the railroads were unconstitutional for charging more to the farmer.
Loneliness is a dreadful emotion that transforms people into vicious monsters. In John Steinbeck 's novel, Of Mice and Men, he illustrates how loneliness affects different people. In this story, two migrant workers go to work on a ranch with the dream of living on their own ranch someday. Lennie, a grown man with the mind of a child, makes some mistakes which cause George to make some life- changing decisions. Steinbeck uses the characters Crooks, Curley, and Curley’s wife to establish that loneliness, whether physical or mental, can drive people to act cruelly, even though it affects people differently.
They had different beliefs about who should govern, the structure of the government, and economics. Jefferson thought a lot of farmers, even saying that “Those who till the soil are God’s finest creation…” . He thought that a person should be able to make and provide for themselves and their families. He also wanted to restrict the federal government power and lower voting qualifications so everyone could vote. Hamilton on the other hand, believed that the common people, or farmers, were foolish.
