Grapes of Wrath

tl;dr - Bunch of farmers who weren't able to manage their finances head out to California thinking they can just show up with nothing and that'll be OK. Guess what, the world don't owe you a job, and especially isn't going to provide for you if you don't have one! Folks didn't even have a college degree... Communist propaganda through and through, and if that weren't bad enough, a sprinkling of disrespect for police.
