However, I believe that Brutus was portraying a patriot by killing Caesar, he knew Cassius had planned something harsh for Caesar and I consider Brutus thought that Caesar didn’t deserve to be killed off that way. So, he took action and did what he needed to do to save Caesar from being tortured or killed higher than he needed to be. Even when Cassius plants artificial notes that are from “Rome”, Brutus knew the truth and didn’t want people to be slaves to Caesar when Caesar didn’t write them in the first place. Brutus might also be seen as a traitor as a result of him killing himself rather than being captured for life for what he did to Caesar. But, to me this just proves that this was his way of paying the ultimate price for what he did, and his only way to find peace.
George is innocent, he knew that Lennie would get in trouble again or be made to suffer and the dream would never come true. George knows that Lennie will cause another problem or be tortured by Curley. Look at it through George 's eyes if you still believe he is guilty what if you had to end your friend 's life to save them from hours of torture or maybe
“To take a life when a life has been lost is revenge, not justice.” -Desmond Tutu. This quote suggests why sentencing one to death after they have taken the life of another is not solving the problem. At most, it is helping to catalyze the grief and loathing towards those who have made mistakes. Although this idea may be impenetrable to those in mourning, it applies to both the most innocent and guilty individuals. For this reason, in John Steinbeck's Of Mice and Men, George should not be punished for killing Lennie because George being forced to decide to either kill his friend, watch other men kill him, or continue running away for the rest of his life is his punishment, he had Lennie's best interest in mind, and Lennie would keep making the same mistakes and identical events to this one would only continue to occur.
Finally, should George go to jail for killing Lennie? I believe that George helped Lennie by keeping him out of a home for the mental. Also i believe that George did the right thing because Curley was gonna kill him or even worse beat him to death. Although people believe George shouldn 't have killed him and he should 've let the police deal with him it would have most likely made things
As it is demonstrated when Charles desired to burn down Tomas’ workshop, envisioning the destruction and harm he desired to cause towards Tomas. However, Charles ability to recognize his fatherly obligations makes him walk away, and assert his position as a “practical man” (52). Though Charles did not perform the violent action, it is arguably the agent’s irrational desires and intentions that depicts Charles’ mental instability. However, there is a sense of regret when Charles chooses to act rationally, because it makes him believe that he is selling his daughter to remain financial stable (49). Like Thanh, when Charles chooses to act submissive it is for the sake of survival.
In the end, George was justified in killing Lennie but he had trouble with killing his friend. He showed that he “shivered”(Steinbeck 106) after he shot Lennie and he wouldn’t kill a good friend without a legitimate reason. George knew that either way, Lennie would die from either Curley or he had to do it. And he did not want Curley to kill him so he made Lennie think of happy things right before his death so it can be peaceful. He was pressured.
The reason she became a Quaker, her father and brother were killed by guns with violence. The two newlyweds are leaving, his sense of duty kicked in and believed he was not a good person for leaving the townspeople to fight against Frank because of his positive actions of putting Frank injustice. This causing a major effect from Kane actions of putting Frank in jail, and he believes it’s his responsible to protect the town and all the hard work of making the town a better place from Frank himself. In the
In the book The Death Cure by James Dashner the author gives a thought provoking moment of when Thomas has to make the decision of letting his friend spiral into madness or kill him to save his sanity. This arises the question of does going against your moral values justify the act of doing the right thing. In the passage we think about this because the right thing for Thomas to do is to go with what Newt says to do and help him keep his sanity over his longer life that would be painful and hard to live through with no control of his brain. However, his moral values would be to keep his best friend alive and find another way. This can be seen when he said in the passage “I can't Newt.” How could Newt ask him to do something like this?
Neil went against the will of his father and was willing to be disowned. Although his plan resulted in much fighting and ultimately Neil’s suicide, he was able to experience his dream that he achieved himself. "When you read, don 't just consider what the author thinks, consider what you think." says Mr. Keating (Weir, 1989). This quote promotes the idea of self-reliance by focusing on what each person thinks and not depending on others to carry you along.
In other words George never wanted Lennie to be treated poorly or be harmed, he wanted Lennie to be cared for, but since he killed Curley's wife they are no out looking for him. George can no longer protect Lennie, he rather end his life with happy feelings, than to suffer a terrible death. To conclude, killing is justifiable when it is a better of two outcomes. If dying is inevitable the less painful way is preferred. Even though, killing morality wrong, when asked, most people would want painless way out.
