Even though in these two stories tackle different things the main character is obsessed over, the main idea of harming other peoples lives because of their strange obsession remains the same. Clearly, obsession can really make one think so irrationally that they forget the basic principles of humanity and they end up doing ridiculous things without usually realizing until after they have taken the wrong action. The lead character in “The Tell-Tale Heart”, had gone so crazy because of his obsession over his eyes, that he decided to take the old man’s life in a very cruel way. The old man had never harmed, insulted, or wronged him in any way, and rather they both cared about each other but “it wasn’t the man who vexed me [him], but the evil eye” . Gradually, he made up his mind to take the life of the old
“She didn't believe Matt because he was only a ‘disgusting clone.’ A dull rage at the unfairness swept at him” (105). Matt always thought that the fact he was discriminated against because he was a clone was unfair. However, he would often call himself a filthy clone and wave his status in María’s face. Compare this to later in the story, “‘Once you’re in control, you’ll destroy the opium empire and tear down the barrier.’ [...] ‘I promise’” (368). Matt is declared a human and the new ruling drug lord of opium.

Anger and rage are basic instincts that society does not look kindly upon. It expects them to be suppressed, however Bruce is overwhelmed by these instincts that manifest themselves in behaviors such as violence and destruction. We see these instincts in him, when his mentor asks him if he blames himself for his parents’ death, to which he responds that his “anger outweighs [his] guilt” (Movie Citation). We see the behaviors that society disapproves such as getting into fights, and a car chase scene where he destroys lots of property. Another primitive instinct is fear.
Grendel was known to have attacked innocent soldiers, however; Beowulf attacks, and kills Grendel whereas, his mother will soon take out revenge on his killer.

Alexander tortured many of his victims and then he killed them. Another reason why he was a villain because he killed members of his family so that he would become the ultimate successor to the throne. This should never be how a king becomes the ruler of his kingdom, ever. Even though I believe that Alexander the Great is a villain, others may think he was a hero. They may think that because he had conquered so many other nations.
Although Gandhi had more supporters than enemies, the hatred Godse had for him led to his ultimate downfall. Bin laden and Gandhi are alike in this way because each of their actions led to their death.

There is a saying that says: “the enemy of my enemy is my friend.” But in the case of Macbeth, this does not apply. The worst enemy of Macbeth was in fact, himself. A great example of this is when he kills the noble King Duncan. But instead of sticking to the plan made by Lady Macbeth and Macbeth, he kills the guards out of fear that they would find out about him. In act two of scene three says,”Oh yet I do repent me of my fury/ that I did kill them”(Shakespeare Macbeth’s , Act II, Scene III).
