John Anthony and David Roberts are brothers in spirit because each has the same internal motivating drive and the same rationale for actions taken. Anthony is the head of the sheet metal company while Roberts is the head of the labor union. Anthony and Roberts are each eventually rejected and abandoned by the sheet metal company and the labor union because both hold the same unbending attitudes.
