Do you know someone or somebody that is power hungry? If so then you should read this play “Macbeth”. When the witches tell Macbeth future of being king he started to think “If I were king then it's meant to be or not” so he didn’t really care at the time. Until he told Lady Macbeth so she had a different opinion she started to have to thoughts about being queen so she convinces Macbeth to kill Duncan. There were three ways that Lady Macbeth moved the play forward and that is she convinces her husband Macbeth to kill Duncan and seems to represent evil schemes and with a lot of power can cause some people to go selfish and greedy.
Power corrupts. After individuals come into a position of power, control becomes second nature to them. They find it excruciatingly strenuous to relinquish the authority they have. They find it onerous to “give away” the power that they hold on so endearingly to. To retain control, situations arise in which individuals will resort to committing unspeakable acts. Throughout the Shakespearean tragedy Macbeth, this theme has been reiterated several times. Shakespeare has used the characters to portray different ideologies. The most prominent example of “power corrupts”
Pablo Escobar was a Colombian born, kingpin who had a net worth of about $30 billion dollars during his lifetime. While he was alive, Pablo Escobar ran the most infamous and violent drug cartels in the world, The Medellin Drug Cartel. “Growing up Pablo and his brother would steal headstones from cemeteries, sand the names off, so they could sell them as new tombstones. They committed other petty crimes to make a small amount of money. After dropping out of college, he started working for a smuggler and made his first million dollars by age 22.” (Pablo Escobar Crime Museum)
Everyone, at one point in their lives has wanted power more than anything. Those who do get it have to make the decision whether they want to use it for good or evil. Power can turn a person into something they never dreamed they would become because it starts to take over their lives and people do not know what to do with so much power. There are many examples of power in the play Macbeth and every person that got it used it in very different ways. This caused many changes in people from turning from good to evil or evil to good. Over the course of the play, power causes Macbeth to turn from honorable to cruel which leads to his downfall.
It is human nature to want power, to be at the top of the pyramid, to be king/queen, but that comes at a price as shown in Macbeth. In the play, Macbeth and Lady Macbeth will do anything to have absolute power and nothing stands in their way. From killing to going completely mad, they will become the next king and queen at all costs. The ambition and the want for power is so high that they kill many, they do whatever they can to be one step closer, and they go completely insane, all because they want that absolute power.
Is it not weird how ambition for power corrupts one corrupt and leads them to their destiny? Ambition for power is lust which tempts one to be corruptive to acquire and protect it. However, in William Shakespeare’s play Macbeth, it is evident that ambition for power ultimately leads to corruption when Macbeth’s ambition for power causes the assassination of King Duncan, when Macbeth’s ambition for power compels him to execute those who obstruct his inheritance to the Scottish Throne, and finally, when Lady Macbeth persuades Macbeth to assassinate the people who impede his Kingship of Scotland out of lust for power.
William Shakespeare, playwright of Macbeth, shows the importance that power and corruption can hold on a person’s humanity. In order to prove the true effect of personal gains, he uses the main character, Macbeth, to show how evil people are willing to become. Personal power has the ability to be essential to greatness, but at the same time is able to destroy a person’s true nature. Believe it or not, Macbeth once was a man of honor. At the beginning of the play, Macbeth was loyal to King Duncan, a strong military leader, and a respected husband. Throughout the tragedy, Macbeth 's character takes a big, yet gradual change for the worst as ambition starts to completely take over him. Once the three witches give Macbeth his prophecies he transitions from a brave, loyal man to a cold blooded murderer. His power hungry personality leads to a character change from who he was before he knew about the witches prophecies, after he learned of them, and right before he was murdered. In Macbeth, Shakespeare dramatises the damaging physical and mental effects of ambition on those who seek power for their own sake.
We all desire power depending on how much is up to the person and how they use it. "Power corrupts, and absolute power corrupts absolutely". This statement is expressing the theme of Macbeth and what happen during the Holocaust. Macbeth and Hitler both received power at their own paste they did do damage with the power they contained and that failed them, but once they received total power the world fell right through their hands an corrupted due to their ego's
Netflix has done it again and made an absolute gem of a series. Its most recent commission "Narcos" focusses in on one of the world's wealthiest ever hoodlums. At his peak in the mid 1990's the terrifyingly fierce Pablo Escobar was pulling in 66 million dollars a day! How could he have been able to accomplish this amazing count? I hear you ask… Well, this fella was the biggest shipper of cocaine into the US. At a certain point 80% of the coke used in the US got through Escobar's drug channels. Four out of each five lines were his!
Power can not only bring ambitious people honors, but also make them lose everything. In the play, Macbeth, written by William Shakespeare, it demonstrates that the immoral power influences the life of Macbeth dramatically. Macbeth’s abuse of power destroys his relationship with his cousin, friend, and wife, which shows that Macbeth’s wild ambition causes him to be isolated.
may go to greater extremes than others to obtain this power. For instance, in the play Macbeth by William Shakespeare, Macbeth was characterized as a good man, well renowned for winning a battle. His wife, on the contrary, Lady Macbeth, has a strong urge to obtain power and she is willing to do anything to acquire it. She implemented the thought of destroying everyone who stood in the way along the path to reach royalty in Macbeth’s mind by making him feel like he as though he is less of a man if he decided not to. Since she is a woman, reach royalty on her own, so she uses her husband, a man who she vowed to love, as a catalyst to get the power she craved. The excessive desire for power can cause one to do things a normal person wouldn’t do.

Good afternoon and I’d like to welcome you to “The Tonight Show”. So tonight we will be talking about Joaquin Guzman. Better known as El Chapo the Mexican drug lord. So apparently they found him... again. Surprisingly before July 12, no one had ever thought someone could escape from Mexico's Federal Social Readaptation Center No. 1, better known as Altiplano. El Chapo was not even imprisoned for the reason we're all thinking. It was claimed that in some way he was responsible for many as 10,000 murders,and for making a mockery of Mexico's justice system. He shouldn’t have hurt Mexico’s justice system feelings he should have known they were weak. Since they didn’t really bust him for anything technically. He first broke out of a different Mexican prison by hiding
People have many different reactions when given power. The reaction is usually either one where they use power for a greater good and to guide others in a better situation, or they can misuse the power given and take advantage of the circumstances or others to make themselves feel even more dominant and in command. In the play, Antigone by Sophocles one of the main characters , King Creon, abuses his power to take superiority of others and in an attempt to gain control. The misuse of power is more frequent than the use of power for the favorable, even in many current events.
