Marx predicted that capitalism within a socioeconomic system would inevitably create internal tensions between social classes leading to its demise and replacement by a new system, communism.

A defining characteristic of capitalism however, is that “it has simplified the class antagonisms. Society as a whole is more and more splitting up into two great hostile camps, into two great classes directly facing each other: Bourgeoisie and Proletariat” (Marx and Engels 1848).

When Lennie held Curley's wife tighter and tighter we all knew whats going to happen because first he killed a mouse and he thought he will not do the same thing with a puppy. John Steinbeck used his creativity use of foreshadowing to make the book more enjoyable to read.

The Inspector believes that “we are members of one body” and that “we are responsible for each other.” This contradicts what Birling was saying at the beginning of the play. Also the Inspector repeats the word “we.” This shows that everyone needs to help one another because we cannot get by on our own. Priestley suggests that needs to be a change in upper class because “there are millions and millions and millions of Eva Smith and John Smith…with their lives, their hopes and fears, their suffering and chance of happiness.” This presents that the people who can help these “John Smiths” (are the upper class) need to offer their support and comfort to them so that they can be happy, however Mr Birling does not have these emotions as we have see through out the play. The Inspector arrives at very good moments in time in the play. He arrives just as Mr Birling is saying “community and all that nonsense”, this implies that the Inspector is going to challenge Mr Birling on everything he just said, to see if he is correct.
