Nobody takes lenny very seurisley either . so their for he has more power. Lenny has more power when it comes down to strength george cant lift as much barley bags as lenny can .George feels obligated to helping lenny because he knew his aunt Clair. .george would feel bad emoinaly if he didn’t take care of lenney. In the book when they kill candys dog thats how they kill George in the end and I think its a symbol of a peacefu;; death. iI think lenny acdenley hurting things is a symbol of someone not knowing their own streinghs. Lenney has less power in society because he can barley keep a job. He owns no land. Has no family because his aunt Clair is gone . Has nobody to look after him but George. I believe that steinbacks arguments are still effective today. People like lenny are still not treated with the respect they should have. I see mentally challenged people get made fun of at shoal all the time. I think its a lot esayer for people to get a good job than it was back then. I think the main argument of the. Book was the american dream that it didn’t work for most people. Lenny and George had a dream to own a ranch like ,many other Americans, they had obstacles they had to get to their dream but they coldly get pst them. I think the american dream is more achievable know than what it is back then know that their is higher slary and better economy witch gives more jobs. I also don’t think theirs the laws with work that we have know . I think steinback was trying to show the social structure of how it was for him.
