Absolute power can make the reader think that they are god like. And if the leaders think that they are god like they assume that they are at higher power. They start believing they they have a god like complex so they think that they can do things like lie, bend the rules, shoplift, and that they are above the law. For example, Hitler thought that he was above the law and that it was his duty in life to kill all those Innocent Jews and fooling everybody in other places unaware of the millions being killed Hitler told all that the camps were Red Cross camps for the needy. He let the power get to his head and started believing that he was above the law so he started lying to all and manipulating and threatening innocent people to death if they did not participate in the moment that he thought was the correct one.
It is human nature to want power, to be at the top of the pyramid, to be king/queen, but that comes at a price as shown in Macbeth. In the play, Macbeth and Lady Macbeth will do anything to have absolute power and nothing stands in their way. From killing to going completely mad, they will become the next king and queen at all costs. The ambition and the want for power is so high that they kill many, they do whatever they can to be one step closer, and they go completely insane, all because they want that absolute power. Although killing is illegal, Macbeth sees no harm at all to killing King Duncan because he said that his son will be next in line for king.
He also arranged that men should get the best part of any animal sacrifice and that the gods should get the worst. This angered Zeus and he swore to get revenge. As a punishment, Zeus chained Prometheus to a rock for many years. But that punishment was not enough for Zeus. Once Prometheus was chained to a rock, Zeus went after Epimetheus.

Of Mice and Men is a novella written by Nobel Prize-winning author John Steinbeck. Published in 1937, it tells the tragic story of George Milton and Lennie Small, two displaced migrant ranch workers, who move from place to place in search of new job opportunities during the Great Depression in California, USA. Based on Steinbeck’s own experiences as a migrant worker in the 1920s, the title is taken from Robert Burns’ poem “To a Mouse”, which read: “The best laid schemes o’ mice an’ men / Gang aft agley.” (The best laid schemes of mice and men / often go awry.) The Life and Times of John Steinbeck John Steinbeck was born in 1902 in Salinas, near the coast of California, 40 km north of the region that became the setting for Of Mice and Men.

Quaritch and his military men never gave up on killing them for the unobtanium and shows that he was heartless. The movie first shows him off as patriotic military man who was there to defend and protect his country but in fact he was a gun crazy guy who only cared about the money and never protecting his people. Even in the beginning of the movie Quaritch said If it moves, shoot it, if your now sure it’s movings shoot it. Then later on right before battle he said that “When we destroy it, we will blast a crater in their racial memory so deep they won 't come within a thousand klicks of this place.” This just shows that he has no problem hurting them if they are not human, he has no care for other life other than his own. This just proves my point of the theme of the Military men and head administrator Parker Selfridge not once caring about the native Omaticaya people they just wanted the unobtanium.
Nick is now paralyzed from a hit and Rinaldi is unresponsive. It ends with “Rinaldi was a disappointing audience.” which shows how Hemingway chose to add a little humour to the story to add realism. The tone of “In Another Country” is grim and bleak. Nick is in Italy experimenting with Machines that may fix his physical flaws but there is uncertainty that clouds his mind. The intro sentence “In the fall the war was always there, but we did not go to it anymore.” (P168) illustrates the grimness and “There were usually funerals starting from the courtyard” (P168) further illustrates that something is off and missing.
