Despite Creon’s past successful leadership, it often appeared as though Creon’s common choice of decisions and following threats led to his loss as his actions caused his people enough fear to want to either escape his rule. Such examples are seen with the guard who says “you won’t see me coming here again.”(Sophocles, 286) which clearly showed his loss of loyalty to Creon after he and the other guards had been threatened under false accusations, or Antigone whose main purpose in the story was to cause to incite conflict by defying Creon’s laws.

There is suffering in the world, because life is unfair and always has been. Good people are harmed by evil people, who do not care about the wellbeing of others. Life for some people is about honoring family and tradition for others it is about gaining power over others. Death is a natural occurrence and some people are able to accept this, some cannot accept the fact that life is not eternal and seek ways to artificially elongate their lives even if it means harming or killing others in the process. All people are different and while some are righteous and will stand by their beliefs even if it means death they will, others are cowards driven by greed and power and will destroy anything and everything for it.
There are many similarities in the Wife of Bath and Pardoner Tale’s that bring them together. For example, greed, lust and issues with corruption that both tales have in them. This is important because these topics open the true meaning of the characters and unfold how the time period was at the time.

Injustice is everywhere, but in an abundance of different shapes and forms. Judgement is the basis of injustice and people are judged on a multitude of reasons like: where they come from, the language they speak, who they are, what they are, and what they do.

The characters in these books fight against the injustice to make their world more fair.
It is very alarming how others can be so cruel just because they see someone as “different.” “Of course in a world that aligns life with the normal and relegates the abnormal to the space of death, normality is hard to argue against.” However, groups like INCITE! Women of Color against inassimilable, “shows the connections between interpersonal violence and larger systems of state violence.” Stanley talks about seeing violence as individual acts versus normative and normalizing structuring of public pain.
