Lennie is incapable of making decisions by himself and relies and depends on George entirely and also looks to him as sort of a big brother. Lennie also sees that George is helpful for guidance and answers which relates to Lennie’s mental abilities. Lennie feels a sense of safeness and comfort when he is with George, whereas when Lennie is without George he sometimes feels awkward and misunderstood by others. George refers to Lennie as his cousin in the book, only to avoid questions being asked and hassle from the ranch owner. But the truth to the matter is that George promised Lennie’s Aunt Clara that he would take care of him when she passed away.
George and Lennie want to own a farm together, but with how Lennie acts it might not happen. TT [George is doomed from his friendship with Lennie.] George and Lennie are really close friends. George and Lennie’s P1 [friendship] doesn’t have any issues that could break their friendship. TT [Lennie holds George back, but George cares so much for Lennie that he’s willing to overcome the challenges.]
George gained this after all the time that he has spent with Lennie. Ever since Lennie’s Aunt Clara died, he has been with George, going from place to place looking for work on different farms. Also, because Lennie is mentally ill, he is forced to rely on George as a parent figure, making the two almost one “whole person only so long as George was tied up to Lennie.” The effectiveness of this “power-pair” is the sincerity of their friendship, and since it is greatly different from all of the other relationships on the ranch, it stands out from the rest. On the other hand, Lennie had a small effect on George’s power. As Bloom’s Notes explains, “Lennie, as an id-figure, had actually exercised a restraining, inhibiting effect on George: the effect of the super-ego, the restrictions of society.

Candy did however have compensation for losing his arm, which he had kept saved encase he needed it. He worried about his future on the farm, so he tried to secure a sure future caring for Lenny and George when they bought their house. Steinbeck showed in the novel how the elderly were put on the scrap heap. They were seen as less important, useless and a waste of time. This affected Curley in a negative way, making him always fearful for his future.
Lennie had crushed his hand in his giant ‘paw’, breaking most of the bones in his hand. If someone knew that there was a dangerous man around the ranch you would not let your loved ones go around the ranch alone. His absence shows that maybe Curley didn’t really care much about the safety of his own wife, as he let her walk around the ranch like there was nothing to worry about. I think Curley neglected his duties as to protect his wife because Curley either doesn’t really care about his wife and only really married her for the pride or he cared about her but didn’t think about her as much as he should have he thought more about his pride and respect than the safety of his own wife. I also think that George is morally responsible because he is obliged to take care of Lennie, George knows everything about Lennie and therefore should have known what he is capable of.

In this battle between the rich and the poor, the government did not help the poor very much, because the government was passive and was incapable of solving the ultimate problem,
He would very well have continued making poor financial decisions had he not gone back to work in his fields and managed to occupy himself. Wang Lung was fortunate of course through all of this to have a wife like O-Lan, who kept up the fields and kept money in the family during Wang's low points, but his willingness to earn success is what brought his family the reputation and funds that he left them on his deathbed. "But Wang Lung thought of his land and pondered... with the sickened heart of deferred hope, how he could get back to it... He belonged to the land and he could not live with any wholeness until he felt the land under his feet and followed the plow in
Fitz usually ignored his preachy speeches but that didn’t stop Father Gregg whom was determined to change Fitz. It was a failed attempt but Fitz used it as an advantage which helped him get out of Juvie sooner.
