I'm looking to build a list of reasons to agree or disagree... This is all I have so far: Please help!

The Grapes of Wrath is not a great book

Score: 2 + 2 +1 +3 = 8
  1. Reasons to agree:
    1. Good books should be relevant to you. The Grapes of Wrath is not very relevant today 
      1. Reasons to agree: + 2
        1. Poverty in America has drastically changed from the time of the Great Depression
          1. Reasons to agree: + 3
            1. We have food stamps.
            2. We now have disability
            3.  Kids are not starving to death in America in more. 
        2. Yes we all know that things were tough. The great depression was hard. Life sucked. But life has always sucked. Why should I read about it now? People live like that overseas. 
    2. Tragedies with no hope are great at pointing out how wonderful the author is, but there is often little reason to read them.
      1. Reasons to agree: + 1
        1. Why waste your time learning about depressing stuff? Life is short. Write about your own problems. Better yet, try to fix your problems. But why read about other people's problems? Why read about fake other people's problems? If you want to read about other people's problems, why not read about important real people from history? Better yet, why not read about people who overcame problems like Lincoln, Washington, John Adams?
