Winthrop asks the people to live in communion and work towards a better society and not be entangled with the worldly attractions.
An article written Christopher Craig by called “’Nobody’s a bum all their life’: Teaching the Class Through William Kennedy’s Ironweed” suggests that “Francis does not make his personal decisions in a moral vacuum. Capitalist interest set the terms and conditions for these choices” (32). Disagreeably, I think his decisions are completely made in such “moral vacuum”, because of the religious family he was in when he was growing up. Doing “the right thing” and Catholicism go hand in hand. Francis follows this pattern, thinking that because he’d done something wrong (leaving his family), he does not deserve to go back home.
In the novel “Out of this Furnace,” Bell suggests that most immigrants came to America seeking a better life, but faced the hard truth of inhuman labor (23).

But lack of education wasn’t the only thing that impeded immigrants to vote, in a discussion with Mike, Kracha makes a comparison between the emperors and the millionaires, “they run the country to suit themselves, and don 't think they 're going to let you interfere every few years with your miserable vote.” (67).In other words, Kracha voiced his opinion on the real results of the voting, Kracha insists that big millionaires and banks, pressure workers into voting for a certain runner, only to benefit
Parris consistently claims that he is a moral and just person. However, as outlined by Giles Corey, he truly just wants power.“But Parris came and he preach nothing but golden candlesticks until he had him” (Miller 62). Parris is so material, that he will not allow the candlesticks made by Nurse with love and care to reside in the church as they were not “fine” enough. Parris’s insistence on placing gold candlesticks demonstrates his focus on earthy wants and materialistic mind. He is a hypocrite as he preaches what he does not do and he desires attention from his profession.
They knew the buyer man would get much more, but they didn't know how to do it. Merchandizing was a secret to them.” (50) It was sought out to represent a social awareness with homeless individuals who were pounded by drought and gloom. The Grapes of Wrath was a plea for the area land owners of California to be more tolerant and the novel itself is told from the perspective of a vagrant family. Steinbeck was careful not to sentimentalize his characters, and condemns the capitalist mode of production. It turned a blind eye to all the nonwhite victims of the landowners and industrialism.
In most cases, the Catholic Church was indeed incharge. Lutheranism wanted to be the new ones in charge since they believed the Catholics were wrong in their teachings. But, they refused to let go of their powers and dominance of all the citizens in the community. This caused the divisions with European Christians and Lutheranism and Calvinism/Anglicanism. Luther thought the Catholic Church and their popes were out of hand and should not control the people as much as they did.

For example, due to his plans to save the economy that both failed, the Prime Minister had a special type of transport named after him. The car of an owner who couldn't afford gasoline was being navigated by a horse, also known as the "Bennett Buggy". Furthermore, Bennett didn't advance the country, if anything, he made it worse. His plans and "ineffectiveness" changed people's views about him, making them think they didn't want any future plans from this "Prime
John Ball was a priest who often spent his Sunday’s out in cloisters or a graveyard preaching that peasants and serfs deserved equality. He often was jailed for expressing his radical views that opposed the views held by the Archbishop of Canterbury. A person like John Ball was a threat to the nobility and royalty in these times. The nobles and royalty did not want thoughts of equality and an explanation for why there should be equality planted into the heads of the serfs and peasants. The upper class wanted to keep their wealth and power, not share it with those who they viewed as unsuitable to live a lavish lifestyle.
They say that his dignity would be lost. People think that he was judged because of his religion. This could lead to the fear of losing his dignity.

However, if the government were to regulate scientific advancements, the scientific world would not see much development, nor would everyday life be as efficient. In addition, science would be restricted to basic knowledge if it were not for advancements. A totalitarian government should not regulate scientific advancements because there are many negative effects that follow, such as the loss of true happiness and knowledge of the world, as told by Huxley. Government regulation of science negatively impacts knowledge of nature and its surroundings. Before the Scientific Revolution, people blindly followed the beliefs of the Church and never questioned whether or not these beliefs were true.
