  • Inequality- Crooks faces racial discrimination. Steinbeck uses this discrimination through Crooks not being able to live in the bunk house with the other workers.
  • Broken Plans- Lennie and George had a dream for the longest time. The dream can no longer be achieved because of George having to kill Lennie. George knew there was no way to save Lennie anymore after him killing Curley's wife. Neither of them would have been safe.
