In order to comprehend the thesis, it is essential that one understand the psychological makeup of the Misfit. The Misfit accepts that he is not “a good man”, but he isn’t “the worst in the world neither” (O’Connor, 619). The Misfit has made his fair share of mistakes but more importantly, is conscious of his shortcomings and his strengths. A major strength that the Misfit possess is that he does not pass judgement onto others because everyone has done wrong, including himself. “I found out the crime don’t matter.
What makes someone a crook or more specifically, a wanted felon, is someone who acknowledges the laws emplaced for the better good, but instead, chooses to ignore them for their own selfish benefit. In the same fashion, The Usual Suspects’ portrayal of the five main criminals illustrates they don’t care for anyone but themselves. For example, Verbal voiced after their interrogations, “what the cops never figured out, and what I know now, was that these men would never break, never lie down, never bend over for anybody.” This explains how Verbal, also known as, Keyser Soze, could look his partners in the face, specifically his so-called best friend Keaton, and shoot them without hesitation. Of course, all criminals are humans and all humans have weaknesses, especially when it concerns love. Keaton, for instance, declared himself a “businessman” multiple times in the film, thus signifying his retirement in the crime industry of New York City.

People determine good and evil based on their perception. People perceive things differently, recognizing a certain situation in an infinite way. In the story, “A Good Man is Hard to Find,” O’Connor’s use of foil makes the reader aware that there is no definitive good or evil, but only a flaw of perception. In the story, “A Good
It is even harder to get a grip on if someone has never had to experience what it is like to feel that way. It is a war with yourself. Jeykll is a good person at heart, but when he drinks this drug, he turns into a monsterous being, an evil person hurting people around him, but mostly destroying himself. People have different ways of coping with their own or someone else’s addictions. I have had to do both, niether of them are easy, and are very confusing.
“Jekyll and Hyde” is a tragic, yet informative show that highlights the importance of morality, the influences of good and evil, and not letting your ‘inner demons’, so to speak, control you. It shows that even the darkest of demons can be overcome with even the smallest glimmer of light and love. It also reflects on how people of one society can differ from each other and, because of money differences, they live completely opposite lives. Throughout it, the higher and lower class citizens have constant roles of passively competing and comparing with each other, but in the end, no one wins. The show starts off with two men, John Utterson, Jekyll’s lawyer and childhood friend, and Sir Danvers Carew, father of Jekyll’s fiancée, Emma.
Having seen how Javert has served legally, attempted the best he could while under the government’s thumb, and even how he tried to stop Valjean under the false interpretation of what he stood for, we can see that Javert is in no way a villain. In fact, Les Miserable’s true villains are the horrible Thenardiers, as well as the corrupt government of the time. Both Valjean and Javert are stuck in a miscommunication loop of what is good and evil. Javert is not a villain in the novel, but rather a warning. Although all may seem grim, his silence did not solve anything around him.
