The events of Of Mice and Men occurred during the time of great depression in America. At that time there was economic crisis that resulted in loss of millions of jobs and people became homeless and very poor. This was reflected in the novel because George and Lennie were poor and had no place to go. Both of them were moving from ranch to ranch searching for a job to survive. This scenario demonstrated their feeling of isolation and loneliness when George mentioned to Lennie “Guys like us, that work on ranches, are the loneliest guys in the world. They got no family. They don't belong no place." (Page 13). The author described also that the feeling of poverty and loneliness made the men seem to return to their basic instinct and fight to survive.

These are essential questions that require enormous investigation and introspective analysis. These questions are extremely difficult to investigate in a scientific setting. Finding subjects in a controlled setting would raise too many ethical questions for social and behavioral scientists to justify, so cases involving feral children exposed to severe social isolation provide a crucial form of evidence and foundation for analysis. The case of Oxana Malaya is one such scenario.

Today, most children with ID are integrated into regular classroom” (Wolfe, 125). I believe this is a serious issue
