    Found it pertinent to today a few ways:
    One of those is that people like to dump on the poor...the down and out...probably because they know that there but for the grace of luck or birth or whatever...

    But it also shows how humans can and do cooperate successfully even or especially when they under great duress.

    Cooperation rather than Competition was a Steinbeck theme that is also on the rise again today with Gar Alperovitz &  Mondragon  etc.   Maybe when wealth gets so overweighted to the top...we begin to think about it more.

    “... there is no shame in not knowing. The problem arises when irrational thought and attendant behavior fill the vacuum left by ignorance.” ― Neil deGrasse Tyson, The Sky Is Not the Limit: Adventures of an Urban Astrophysicist
