And fear the time when the strikes stop while the great owners live—for every little beaten strike is proof that the step is being taken.” | Pg.151 | This is one of my favorite quotes from the book. It was odd at first that Steinbeck started giving war a positive light, however after reading it over I completely agreed with the quote. Man is constantly moving forward step by step. This also reminded me of how in the book Tom was just trying to put “one foot in front of the other” so that he could deal with his situation. Men always advance and as they do, it can be a struggle so it is almost like everyone is just stumbling

In “Kid Kustomers” a selection from Eric Schlosser’s best-selling book, Fast Food Nation, he explains the increase in children’s advertising and states that advertising aimed at small children attempts “to increase not just current, but also future, consumption.” Throughout this text Schlosser gives many examples of how children’s advertising is effective and why it began. The reasoning behind this new increase in advertising aimed at children is because all of the companies noticed the potential amount of profit they could make off of this change. Adding children to their advertising aim was supported by companies because they want to create lifelong relationships with their customers, put pressure on future consumption of their product early,
Although both articles are similar when it comes to their sarcastic tones and the general topics of their writings, the fact that Kinahan believes that youth is non-competitive due to fear of violence and Jones believes that we use the Internet instead of facing violence face to face, is what distinguishes the two pieces from one another. Kinahan believes that “America’s youth are becoming fat, lazy, and non competitive because competition is viewed as ‘bad’” (344). He believes that parents are ultimately babying their kids, and sheltering them from any type of violence that arises in the sports world. Children are growing up and thriving on the idea that competition
