1359 Actions Economic Scheming
2282 Actions Moral Scheming

Any action that plots or plans to gain a material or social advantage over someone through immoral means. This is separate from economic scheming, which is often directly tied to a commercial situation. It is also not like deception, because the deception has not happened yet. The specific example is Boon "scheming" to take out the car, but there are other instances of characters ratiocinating or plotting to do so. JB

2574 Actions Moral Secret

This is the action of keeping a secret or deciding whether or not to keep a secret. It is not necessarily good or bad, rather keeping a secret is a type of moral choice. Since, this is a singular secret and not a protracted secret, as for example Linda Snopes's parentage, this is placed under moral actions and not themes. JB

3726 Actions Economic Selling land

Added to distinguish (if we deem necessary) the selling of LAND, part of one's holdings, rather than an entire "home or place"; perhaps these should be subsumed under a single keyword, but selling a home or place is probably not quite the same thing as selling PART of one's land (as in the pasture in SF).

696 Actions Economic Share-cropping|Tenantry

There are significant differences between "share-cropping" and "tenant farming" in reality. "Tenants" typically furnished their own farming tools and livestock, and had at least a measure of control over what crops they planted on land they rented from a landlord; "share-croppers" typically only contributed their own labor, with the landlord dictating what they would raise and providing the animals and tools they used. But in his fiction Faulkner does not maintain this distinction, using the terms as essentially synonymous. SR
