The lead character in “The Tell-Tale Heart”, had gone so crazy because of his obsession over his eyes, that he decided to take the old man’s life in a very cruel way. The old man had never harmed, insulted, or wronged him in any way, and rather they both cared about each other but “it wasn’t the man who vexed me [him], but the evil eye” .

George compares competition to the dark ages by saying “If I tried to get away with it, then other people'd get away with it—and pretty soon we’d be right back to the dark ages again, with everybody competing against everybody else.
