To a certain extent, Macbeth’s murder of Duncan was justifiable. This was a cruel and selfish act, but it was for the greater good of Macbeth and his wife. Macbeth wanted himself to be the king of Scotland and for Lady Macbeth to be the Queen. The murder was wrong, of course, but Macbeth only did it in an effort to give a better life to his family. On the other hand, as soon as Macbeth started selfishly murdering the chamberlains, he was no longer being selfish for a good reason as these deaths were not entirely necessary.
He was also human! Killing another human is never right. I do understand that george was trying to protect lennie but killing him is certainly not the right way to do it. Lennie may have problems with accidentally killing things but george didn't have to kill him for it. George promised to protect lennie and by killing him George broke that promise.”Him and me was both born in auburn.
In spite of George asking Lennie to stay out of trouble, Lennie got in trouble without knowing. Eventually, George wouldn’t be able to cover for Lennie’s mistakes. If George just kept on moving with Lennie, sooner or later someone could have found Lennie’s well hidden disability. People knowing about Lennie’s disability could create more pain for Lennie because they may have sterilized or killed him for being unuseful to society. Some may say that George made mistakes too.
He knew that if Curley found George with Lennie, Curley would have thought that George in on the plan the entire time. This is why Curley says “You George! You stick with us so we don’t think you had nothin’ to do with this”(Steinbeck 98). Though some may say that George shouldn’t have killed Lennie only because he didn’t want Curley to do it, George knew and understood how Candy felt when Carlson killed his dog. Ince Candy’s dog was Candy’s best friend, George knew how much pain Candy went through when he had to witness his own dog getting killed by somebody other than himself.
Although some may say it was okay to kill Lennie, George’s choice to end Lennie’s life is unacceptable because how can you end the person’s life who has been there for you from the beginning to the end. George's justification for shooting Lennie is to keep him from experiencing the pain that will follow the consequences of his actions. Lennie will be probably be beaten and then killed when he is caught. George also knows that even if they were to escape, it would be
George killed lennie out of love because he didn’t want him to suffer. George didn’t want Lennie to suffer a long painful death from being shoot in the guts, or from being locked up in a cage being beaten by Curley and the farmhands. George did the right thing because he didn’t want Lennie to suffer. But George also didn’t do the right thing because he killed his friend and broke his promise to Lennie’s aunt Clara that he would look after him and protect him. It was also kind of a good thing for George to do because if he wouldn’t have killed Lennie, Lennie would have suffered, or Lennie could have hurt someone else.
The practice of voyeurism is a debatable subject often criticized negatively for its perverted motives. Yet, through both Woolrich’s “It had to be murder” and its film adaptation Rear Window, the reader can be led to see a celebration of voyeurism rather than a critique. Jeffries is indeed given the most reasonable excuses to stalk his neighbours as his cast takes away his freedom of movement and the murder he tries to solve also gives him more reasons to spy on his neighbours. However, Jeff is greatly saved from being entitled as a Peeping Tom by the coincidence of Thorwald’s wife’s murder. As a matter of a fact, the timing in which Jeff is stuck in a cast and the woman is murder is nothing but a coincidence, neither Hitchcock nor Woolrich
George was protecting Lennie from an agonizing death by killing Lennie himself instead of having Curly murder him. He even had difficulty raising the gun behind Lennie’s head. This substantiates George’s adherence to Lennie due to the fact that he struggled to do what was best for his chum because he did not want to lose him. Therefore, George made the correct decision to assassinate Lennie, guarding him against an apprehensive
George would protect Lennie at all costs even from himself. After Lennie kills a young woman, George decides it is better for Lennie to be dead rather than to be tortured and kept in a cell or a mental asylum. The decision of killing Lennie hit George like a train, but he knew it was something that was in Lennie’s own good. Knowing he could have an easier life without Lennie, George still kept him around because he needed George and George needed Lennie. George tells Slim “Course Lennie’s a God damn nuisance most of the time, but you get used to goin’ around with a guy an’ you can’t get rid of him.” (Steinbeck, 41) George explains how he feels about Lennie without getting too sweet so Slim does not think that George is weak.
This action would have given Fortunato a more comfortable feeling towards Montresor. When one person shows concern towards another’s well being, it provides the other person with a feeling of comfortability. As a result of this, Fortunato does not think twice when asked if he wants to visit the catacombs. Poe uses a villain protagonist, like Montresor, “...who hate their enemies but whose hate becomes even more sinister and implacable because they mask it with signs of affection.” Montresor’s plan to kill Fortunato is even more horrific when he leads Fortunato to
We can make the situation end differently, but George being his friend and knowing the conditions that Lennie is in I think it was a way of ending the story. George didn 't want Lennie to suffer .So he decided to just shoot him. They could 've just let him go to jail but he would suffer. He could either die in jail by other inmates, get executed if he resisted. I don 't think George was Lennies true friend because they both didn 't like Curley.
