A mix between being power hungry and selfishness can lead to destruction and mass chaos. Both Macbeth and Orenthal James Simpson, nicknamed “The Juice” displayed these traits, which later lead them to face their consequences. Macbeth killed to gain power for himself, and so did O.J Simpson. Both men were dominated by their power hungry and selfishness, which lead to the death of Macbeth and Nicole Brown.

The character of Macbeth has two sides, one which is wholesome while other been dubious.

A story of tragedy is not uncommon with William Shakespeare and his works of prose. In his plays, death and despair is more likely than honor and prosperity. This is an included facet to Macbeth as well, having sinister themes of greed, manipulation, and brutality. Macbeth, by the infamous playwright, Shakespeare, presents us with multiple aspects factoring into whether the main character controls his actions that lead to the tragic events.
Macbeth started off as a valiant and courageous soldier, who would do anything for the king. By the end of the play, Macbeth was a tyrant and a horrible leader who killed those who trusted him to maintain the throne. It takes many factors to take a strong man and transform him into an evil monster. Macbeth’s downfall was caused by the deception and temptation of the witches and their prophecies, Lady Macbeth’s greed and aspirations for her husband to be king, and Macbeth’s own greed, jealousy and ambition.
Is it not weird how ambition for power corrupts one corrupt and leads them to their destiny? Ambition for power is lust which tempts one to be corruptive to acquire and protect it. However, in William Shakespeare’s play Macbeth, it is evident that ambition for power ultimately leads to corruption when Macbeth’s ambition for power causes the assassination of King Duncan, when Macbeth’s ambition for power compels him to execute those who obstruct his inheritance to the Scottish Throne, and finally, when Lady Macbeth persuades Macbeth to assassinate the people who impede his Kingship of Scotland out of lust for power.
From the moment that Macbeth is told he will be the king of Scotland, he becomes impatient and greedy. Not only him but his wife as well, learn almost immediately how poisonous greed can be. The two made terrible decisions simply because they wanted power. This lust for a title earned them tragic deaths in the end. The most common theme within Macbeth is that ambition has the potential to turn into greed. This greed that is formed is dangerous and will never result in a positive
