Grendel was only killing for him he was being selfish and was harming others for no reason. Beowulf stopped all of his crimes, he stopped all his attacks from happening. Beowulf represented good. “I’d leave my armor to my son, Now if god had given me a heir, A child born of my body, his life created from mine.” He didn’t have selfishness he was willing to give up what he
In the end, George murdering his friend was well justified. Although, Lennie’s actions probably weren’t his fault, with him not being able to learn from his actions and remember that his own strength is too much for him that he became a threat. George, pained to do it, knew what was best for Lennie and other people/animals, and had to end his life. Overall, even though George had to make some pretty drastic decisions and someone’s life got taken away, it was all for the best and nothing bad will no longer happen and who knows, maybe George will get to live his
Ashoka could have just been the kind of ruler who orders everyone around and does not care about his people, but he wanted them to be happy. Ashoka set on a path to be a different ruler, one who tried to make an enlightened life for his people. Ashoka was becoming a friendly
The noblest Roman of all was Brutus for many reasons. In many cases Brutus would rather chose death over a life with no honor. He claimed all the traits honor; integrity, decency, morality, and rectitude. His decision to kill Caesar was not based on his own views or the views and beliefs of others he made his decision on which would be best for rome and for its people. Brutus was a gentle and honest man who killed caesar for the right reasons and not just so he would have a greater shot at becoming the king of rome.
Cassius knew and warned Brutus yet Brutus was being stubborn for better words and did not listen. Cassius was suicidal and didn’t exactly speak his opinion when it was needed or could of been heard. Cassius also killed one of his own men during war who was a coward! That shows major disloyalty with Cassius knowing that they shouldn’t of gone to Philippi in the first place. Julius Caesar would of made a great leader for Rome and showed loyalty and gave to his country in his will .
They changed the world. They were both pacifists; they didn’t believe violence would solve anything. These men were both assassinated, unfortunately. Compared to most people, Mohandas Gandhi and Martin Luther King Jr. didn’t care if other people didn’t agree with their
While war can be seen as a way to gain land, wealth, and power, it ends up not benefiting either side. The inhumanity found in humans that is shown in war, changes both the aggressors and the victims’ lives in a negative way. Humans often lose sight of what is most important in life: survival; therefore some focus all of their attention towards what is needed to make them “fulfilled”, and sometimes have to take down others in order to get their way. Hitler was enraged that the Germans lost WWI, and blamed the loss of the war on the citizens of Germany being unpatriotic and
He was devastated, but even more angry, so he sought to avenge his friend and honor his name. On the other hand, Beowulf, has little emotion in his decisions to fight. He looks at the greater need of his people, not what he wants or what might happen to him. He shows this when he volunteers to battle Grendel. Grendel had not done anything to Beowulf personally, but to his people.
Although it is unknown whether Beatty would actually kill Montag or Faber, Montag did end up killing him, and because it was out of defense of himself, his property, and someone else’s life and property, Montag is justified in his actions. In the novel Fahrenheit 451 (F451), the government has banned books, but the government is not to blame as it started with the people. The average person did not have the slightest consideration of books, and the people that did were considered snobby and harmful to society because they became much more intelligent than the average person. During the book, our main character Montag is a firefighter, but instead of putting out fires, they create them. They
This could be a reason he kills so mercilessly and does not feel remorse for his victims. Kilcourse describes the Misfit’s Actions “This bringer of death is profoundly offended that the Giver of Life cannot be dismissed as a mere holy man or eminent ethical figure but must be adjudged as either the incarnate of God or else a wholesale fraud” (38). The Misfit is a nihilist, and he wants to believe that God exists, but he can’t and his merciless killing and crimes are a strike back at
