The tolerance to break this is accepted more or less among people, and their success makes other hard-working people in to believing the same. Although the official rules, kings and leaders, in this case Macbeth, can believe that dishonesty sometimes can be a tolerated method by helping themselves and the ones that surrounds them to success. Macbeth faces a hard time standing up to his very own decisions and listens to lady Macbeth that eventually makes him want to live up to her expectations. This destroys his personality quickly and gets very paranoid that makes him corrupt and disloyal. When Macbeth achieved the position as a king in such random matter and surprisingly for both Macbeth and Lady Macbeth, the lack of preparations not just physically, but mentally has very big consequences.
In the book “The Prince” there was an advice that was one of the important factors that a prince should have in his knowledge. That was “cruelty and compassion; and whether it is better to be loved than feared” (Machiavelli 1916). It is better to have loved more, or vice versa, the book is a good example of the accuracy of its problems psychological in their early stages is one of the best parts of the mission. The gestation period for cruelty to replace the feeling of a prince, but he likes his subjects united and better, he should not worry loyal. Whether face criticism for his cruelty to his prince for a long time, or reverse.
He talks about how it is better to be hated than to loved if it will benefit you, “Here a question arises: whether it is better to be loved than feared, or the reverse...anyone compelled to choose will find greater security in being feared than in being loved. . . . Love endures by a bond which men, being scoundrels, may break whenever it serves their advantage to do so; but fear is supported by the dread of pain, which is ever present” (Machiavelli, 60).
In line 1228 he says to the leader: “Oh it’s hard giving up on the heart’s desire… but I will do it” after he is convinced to let Antigone free. This quote says, Creon does not want to go back on his word and does not want to let a criminal get away, but he has to so his people can view him as a better ruler than they initially thought. This made me feel sympathetic because he was willing to give up something he cared about for the life of someone else. It shows a change he undergoes but was never able to fix his mistakes because Antigone had already killed
But, Macbeth, who became a very strong and fearful leader, ended up also being killed. On the other hand, Malcolm is perceived as being tough, but also trustworthy because of his actions, and having these two qualities that can lead him to be a good king. In the real world these problems of power and leadership have also been present since the beginning of times. This takes us to interpret that leaders need to be neutral, or in between the two qualities of fearful and very trustworthy. Consequently, when rulers are very kind and express a lot of trust, people take advantage of them, but when leaders are very tough and harsh, people want to get rid of them and create wars.
If people are acting out and behaving negatively, it is because he is having trouble surviving, but is really a good person inside. This is why the spirit can be saved, and the spirit alone can save the body. The second point made is that “your viewpoint is the most important thing. If you lose this, you lose everything. We observe what we observe and say what we observe You live by your observations alone.
This shows that Huck’s moral values are more in tune with making the right choice than society’s. On their journey, Jim even tells Huck that he is the best friend he had ever had (Twain 72). Huck might break the law, but he selects that option over condemning his friend to a lifetime of unhappiness and
This being said it seems that honour is the differentiating category in becoming an ideal man. The actions of the monsters, especially Grendel can be seen as hugely shameful in the aristocratic ideal of masculinity, but after his actions his mother still defends him. For this reason I do not think that the ideals of masculinity are the same for both the aristocratic society as for others. Although both sides struggle with these ideals, it is the aristocratic side that truly try to become that ideal of masculinity. The ideals of aristocratic masculinity mean for the men to be brave, loyal and honourable.
It's a decision between morals or friends and makes that decision clear that he rather choose the right morals over having a friend in power. Throughout the novel Julius Caesar's morals is to be seen as ambitious and wanting people to praise him while Brutus's morals being Humble and doing what is ethical. The Characteristics of Julius Caesar and Brutus contradict each other and Brutus does what his morals are to get rid of Julius Caesar or in the play to assassinate him. Another example of of his morally right decisions affecting an outcome is his influence on the conspirators. Cassius, a conspirator, is to ask why Caesar's name is to “be sounded more than” Brutus's name and then to say
So forth, his nobility and trusting nature lead to mistaken action without question. Although nobility and trust are usually positive qualities to have, they can become tragic if one has them at an exceptional rate. Cassius and the other conspirators deceive Brutus, because they need someone so well-loved by the people that any fault he made would be over looked.
