A search of Grapes of Wrath and OWS

Forum Post: The Grapes of Wrath

Occupy reminds me of the Hoovervilles of the Great Depression and that got me to thinking about the Grapes of Wrath.

The Grapes of Wrath & Occupy Wall Street

Quote from the book, Grapes of Wrath:

If you who own the things people must have could understand this, you might preserve yourself. If you could separate causes from results, if you could know that Paine, Marx, Jefferson, Lenin were results, not causes, you might survive. But that you cannot know. For the quality of owning freezes you forever into “I”, and cuts you off forever from the “we”.
