  "Contentment Makes Moral Behavior A Breeze" by [email protected] (see profile) 04/11/19

An important question to ask oneself is,"what makes you content?" Much of society has tossed morality out the window in quest for status and riches. Once these are obtained, life becomes balmier and moral behavior comes much easier. Win the rat race and righteousness is a piece of cake.
Steinbeck's comment at the beginning of the book is right on the mark: "Readers seeking to identify the fictional people and places here described would do better to inspect their own communities and search their own hearts, for this book is about a large part of America today."
