Abner Snopes would abuse his son and one particular moment Sarty realize that he did not want to live in fear with his father rules. In this context it is believable that Sarty wants to do the right things from now on,"If I had said they wanted only truth, justice, he would have hit me again." But now he said nothing. He was not crying. He just stood there”(Faulkner, 3).

The last scene of Lennie and George displays their usual relationship Lennie committing mistakes and George being mad at him. Steinbeck portrays sadness on this scene exhibits their usual relationship, but this time one thing is different, since George is pretending to be angry at him, by being apprehensive. The task George is about to do is definitely a hard one so he decide to sweet talk Lennie about their dream of the ranch while he prepares himself mentally to commit this action.

Once Sarah realizes that her husband is building a barn, her son Sammy admits that he had also known about the barn for three months. He just “’didn’t think ‘twould do no good.’” (Freeman 650) Whether intentional or not, the father had taught Sammy to think that men could make decisions without consulting their partners and that it was actually better to hide the barn instead of facing the issue. If men had the ability to do things, simply because they were men, why not just do the easy thing and avoid any conversation about it? It was an understandable mindset for Sammy to take on, but it was already leading to a horrible treatment of women as he clearly could not even respect his own mother. But while Father pushes ideals of toxic masculinity onto his son, Mother also pushed similar ideals on their daughter Nanny.
Of george And Lennie Everyone in the world, all the time, people experience unfairness in life, rather than experiencing fairness or even equality for that matter.

Now, look — I’ll give him the work tickets, but you ain’t gonna say a word. You jus’ stand there and don’t say nothing. If he finds out what a crazy bastard you are, we won’t get no job, but if he sees ya work before he hears ya talk, we’re set. Ya got that?”’ (Steinbeck, 7).

“If you look at great human civilizations, from the Roman Empire to the Soviet Union, you will see that most do not fail simply due to external threats but because of internal weakness, corruption, or a failure to manifest the values and ideals they espouse” (Booker). No one likes feeling weak; even more so when it’s their own fault. Weakness can be caused by a multitude of reasons such as the lack of a comprehension or for health reasons which sometimes lead to negative outcomes. John Steinbeck 's novella Of Mice and Men proves that weakness leads to a variety of repercussions by using irony to show weakness, Candy’s self troubles, and the use of foreshadowing. Irony was used to the show the outcomes caused by weakness in Of Mice and Men throughout the entirety of the story.
To bystanders, in the book, it is hard to understand how close the pair actually is. For example, when they first arrive at the ranch and they are speaking to the boss, he questions George’s motives for speaking in place of Lennie by saying, “I said what stake you got in this guy? You takin’ his pay away from him?” (Steinbeck 22). The boss does not understand how tight of a bond George and Lennie have; so to him, George must have a different motive for caring about Lennie. Yet, the truth is that George was willing to take Lennie’s life in order for him to escape the pains he would have endured.

[G] Under the category of losing hope, Joe Wilner writes “ Victimization- When we are abused and belittled we can start to believe that is how life is supposed to be… begin to feel that we don’t have any control over what happens to us and that bad things will always occur... can relate to unfair treatment from prejudice and discrimination” (Wilner, 1). [H] I feel like George had an mindset that all bad things would happen to them and continue to happen to them because George didn’t seem to have control over what happened to him or Lennie. [I] Especially with what happened in Weed, George feels like bad things will continue to happen. [J] George had told Lennie about the farm and soon after, Candy found out.
