These people and their writings had a huge impact on the French Revolution. FRENCH SOCIETY: Prior to the revolution, the French society was buried under the burden of taxes-levied by the State, rents paid to the lord, contributions collected by the clergy, as well as under the forced labor exacted by all three. People were reduced to foraging for food because of the recurring famines. The famines were caused by both manmade and natural factors. The manmade factor was because of the flocking of hundreds and thousands of people to Paris and other centers from rural areas in search of better living conditions which created an imbalance.
People that lived in that area could not step outside or they would get dust in their lungs. Livestock could not breath or find food sources. Thousands of people lost their homes due to the storm. Changes in farming and agriculture in the early 1900s altered the landscape and soil creating the perfect environment for the Dust Bowl and impacted living conditions and economic policy. First, changes in farming and agriculture over the years led to the conditions that caused the Dust Bowl and impacted the Great Plains.
According to Elie Wiesel's speech called, "The Perils of Indifference", he explains, "it has been suggested, and it was documented, that the Wehrmacht could not have conducted its invasion of France without oil obtained from American sources." Since America's corporations continued doing business with Germany because they didn't care, it caused many people from France being killed or separated from their families. Also, according to Elie Wiesel's speech called, "The Perils of Indifference", he states, "wrapped in their torn blankets, they would sit or lie on the ground, staring vacantly into space, unaware of who or where they were, strangers of their surroundings." Since many other countries didn't care about what was going on in Germany, many Jews who they called Muselmanner died. The Muselmanner died from things that they couldn't fix, but other people could.
Biological and Environmental Imagery and Jargon in The Grapes of Wrath John Steinbeck’s 1939 novel The Grapes of Wrath chronicles the movement of the Joad family and thousands of other tenant farmers westward from Oklahoma, as drought and its resulting economic hardship force them to leave behind their homes.

Germany needed a scapegoat for all the struggles they were facing and Hitler used stereotypes to give the German people a scapegoat. Ignorance clouded the judgment of the German people. Ultimately the Jews would pay the price while the world was oblivious of the crimes against humanity which the Nazis committed. Elie Wiesel is stuck in dark times for people of his ethnicity. Nazis felt that the Jewish people were inferior.
Thus, in my opinion, it would be used for so long, and will disappear with the generation that brought it up. Blé Blé literally translates as wheat in English, in French, it still means wheat but is also used as a slang and popular expression referring to money, he earns a lot of money can be translated as Il gagne beaucoup de blé. The origin of this term goes back to the time when the farmers needed to harvest wheat in order to sell it and make money, or pay taxes to the King, thus, the more wheat the farmers had, the richest they were. This explanation explains why today is it common for French to refer to blé when speaking of money. I don’t know when exactly it started to be popular, but I’ve heard it all my life, and still hear today people from all ages saying it.

In the 1930s with the Great Depression affecting millions of people in America, it was common to see immigrant’s working on agricultural labor.

Throughout the novel Steinbeck vaguely tells the readers, through the protagonist Lennie and George, an unrealistic American Dream. It comes to the question of how far-fetched was George and Lennie’s American dream?
