Caesars fatal death by his strong governing peers may have been because Caesar’s hamartia is his arrogance, and this is shown consistently through his life span in the play. Since Caesar has a strong political following and position in Rome’s state, he has much arrogance in his personality and this arrogance is his hamartia which has a fatal ending to his life. If Caesar was more cautious about how he treated other people with little respect then maybe his arrogance would not have been hamartia. When the soothsayer warned Caesar about the Ides of March, if Caesar was not ignorant and arrogant then he would’ve believed the soothsayer which could of saved his life. With Caesar being so arrogant he believed that nothing bad would have ever happen to him, but if he noticed but the signs of what was to come in the Ides of March and how suspicious Cassius, Brutus, and the other congressmen were then he may of not come to a fatal death.
Fear even comes into the eyes of everyone of Darth Vader’s pawns on the Executor (Darth Vader’s Head ship). One specific example of this is in ‘Star Wars Episode IV: A New Hope’, the backtalk of one of his commanders was unacceptable to Vader so he used the force to choke and almost kill him. We see in several other cases where Darth Vader does actually kill his followers because they don’t succeed in following his directions. Through these occurrences one can safely presume that Darth Vader’s power is mainly obtained by fear. Darth Vader, however,is compelled by hate rather than fear.
Despite the influences of Lady Macbeth and the three Weird Sisters, Macbeth is mostly responsible for his own downfall. He is the one who makes the decisions throughout the entire play even though he is influenced by others. He also uses the prophecies in a negative way and loses his relationship with his wife by leaving her out of decisions later on in the play. Throughout the play Macbeth overthrows his guilt and continues to kill people to protect his crown. His confidence and desire for power fuels his ambition to become king.
Fear was also spread through each other because of each other. In Lord of the Flies, the boys had separated themselves into 2 groups, Ralphs or Jacks.Ralphs group was more civilized but Jacks group was more savage and were more into having fun than focusing on surviving on the island and thinking about the long run.The two leaders had come off to show themselves as strong and independent but later on, they started to gain this hatred in themselves selves for each other it grew so much that Jack had come to the point where he was ready to kill Ralph because he posed as a threat to him. In the book, it states how Ralph finds out how the other group is planning to kill him when all he wanted to do was try to be leader to keep
Fear is an unpleasant caused by the belief that someone or something is dangerous, likely to cause pain or a threat. (Mariams Webster). Fear is a thing we all hold inside of us, we are all scared of something or someone it 's just human nature. In Lord of the Flies, William Golding uses a unique way of showing how fear affects human behavior, he used the boys on the island to show how fear affects the behavior of humans and how the boy 's manner and mentality changed over time. From when the boys first came on the island they are actions were normal then later on as the boys started gaining the fear of the beast they started doing abnormal actions they took certain steps because of the fear in them that had been planted by the beast in this case.
His anger made him do things without thinking, which could end up harming him. His fear of being thought weak made Okonkwo do everything he could to appear more manly, which could end up with him harming himself or others. Because of his vulnerabilities, Okonkwo’s downfall was his own fault. Due to his anger, Okonkwo beat his wife during the week of peace, violating the rules of the week. He also killed Ikemefuna because “[h]e was afraid of being thought weak.” (61) These two actions were Okonkwo’s fault, and were caused by his vulnerabilities.
The society humans live in constrict a human’s natural sense of savagery; however strip that away and put a human in a situation where the rules of civilization are absent then there will be nothing but pure chaos. In Lord of the Flies, the kids try incredibly hard to stay civilized, however, it proved to be too difficult as their inner evil started to take over. The island was slowly becoming increasingly now that the rules of civilization don’t exist meaning, it was all about “survival of the fittest”. The fact is, savagery always wins. That’s why the person who fully gave in to savagery was the one who ended up with more power and more control.
Brutus made justified actions in result of his internal conflicts. He believes that Caesar is not fit to be a king, and will become dictatorial. This problem plagued Brutus for several sleepless nights. He finally came to his conclusion that, for the better of Rome, he must stop Caesar before he gets too powerful (II, i, 34-36). As he joins the Conspiracy to kill Caesar, he believes the rest of the Conspirators have the same view as him.

This event, know as the Tiananmen Protest, killed many citizens. From this experience, the citizens restrain themselves from protesting to prevent an incident analogous to the Tiananmen Protest from occurring. Because Alex undergoes the experiment, fighting and causing injury to somebody will make him sick. This is has a disadvantage on him because he cannot fight back against the people he harmed before he was imprisoned. The citizens of China comprehend with incidents similar to this when they are pawns of forced evictions.
The book The Outsiders is full of many important lessons but only some can affect life today such as the fact that fighting is not good no matter how bad the situation is. We can take this lesson and apply it to our lives now even though stuff like this isn’t happening as much as it did in the book.This is most important because there is so much violence going on in the world and, people have no reason. We need to learn that violence isn’t always the answer. The book shows us that when violence is the only solution it will end very badly. Johnny tells Ponyboy at the end of the book that violence is bad, and coming from Johnny this really means something.
