Many times wars are fought for freedom and change, usually greed is involved. In Kim, we read about different caste systems. Many of the people couldn’t eat with people in other castes. They didn’t wear the same clothes or travel in the same ways. Kim worked as a spy and took advantage of all of the different castes in that society. When we read about George Washington Carver, we learned how the differences in America caused divides in the way people were treated.
