EBOOK FREE (The Grapes of Wrath) AUTHOR John Steinbeck
Y had unions If nly they had fair labor standards to guarantee them a minimum wage If Cracked Dreams only they had the protectionf government legislation to prohibit wealthy landowners from colluding to keep prices high and wages lowWhich leads me to wonder what would Ayn Rand think Phebe Fairchild: Her Book of all this After all aren t labor unions and economic regulation precisely what she argues against By that account if Atlas Shrugged is the supposed Biblef right wing thinkers then I d have to say that The Grapes Novelle Rusticane of Wrath might just be its antithesis But the real difference as far as I can tell is that while Atlas Shrugged represents a crazy woman s visionf a whack job world that could never actually exist John Steinbeck tells it like it is and how it was for so many hard working Americans who were taken advantage Numbers in the Dark and Other Stories of under a system that did nothing to protect them And what s even remarkable is that Steinbeck s characters whom by the way Rand would refer to as moochers just thought we should be clearn that make Dagny Taggart and Henry Reardon look like a couple Toy Box: Silk of pussies What is it Ma Joad

serves largely to put them Exhalation off fine literature for the restf their lives The depth f understanding and compassion for the human condition as communicated by a book like this is simply unfathomable to those who haven t lived much life yet but after you ve gotten a healthy dose f living it comes across like fine music to a trained ear My heart doesn t bleed for the Joads today as it

Promised land Oglinda salvata of California Outf their trials and their repeated collisions against the hard realities f an America divided into Haves and Have Nots evolves a drama that is intensely human yet majestic in its scale and moral vision elemental yet plainspoken tragic but ultimately stirring in its human dignity A portrait f the conflict between the powerful and the powerle. M and unfair but it s no longer shocking Nemico or disturbing and I can see now that Steinbeck didn t intend sensationalism to be the main point What he s about is revealing the human dignity the innate goodness and unbreakable pridef these people and by extension the American people in general something that still resonates today especially with reference to the working classes When the Joads

Wrath Worse yet many liberal lawmakers won t read it again after high school and won t glean from it an essential understanding about the pride and perseverance f the American working class which the
