Inhumanity is a theme in the book that is a target of satire. When comparing prison to the home they are living in now Tom Joad says “ "Oh, awright.

"'Bout a month he's back for breakin' parole. A guy ast him why he bust this parole. 'Well, hell,' he says. 'They got no conveniences at my old man's place. Got no 'lectric lights, got no shower baths. There ain't no books, an' the food's lousy”. Prison sounds better than the areas the family is currently living in. This shows the inhumanity of the people running the camps and just how poorly they treated the individuals working there.
I have been tasked with writing an alternate ending to washington Irving's “the devil and tom walker”. Irving was a writer of folktales, this particular folktale takes place a few miles from boston massachusetts, it foretells of a man and a woman who try to make a deal with the devil. the woman fails and is never seen again but tom walker, the man, succeeded and became a very rich and prosperous man as a usurer or a money lender however as the years passed by, Tom grew older and while in dealings with a man he mistakenly yelled “devil take me” and in “The Devil and Tom Walker” the devil did indeed take him that very night. My alternative ending will begin on page 244, in the second column at “Tom lost his patience and his piety--”.

Vice is immoral or wicked behavior according to the Merriam-Webster dictionary. One thing that comes to mind is relationships between people.

The movie I decided to choose was Forrest Gump. This movie has a lot of history of the United States that starts from around the 1950s and then into the present. The movie shows many trends in various social movements that were going on in the United States.

Many of the issues are universal, but the movie shows the American nature of the social and individual issues that I believe help Non-American people learn some American culture through a great movie. The American cinema has been dominating the cinema world in the recent decades, which has a lot of influence on many people who watch the movie.
