Also, his loyalty to Oedipus is evident when it is realized that it is him who had killed the king. It is disgracing that Oedipus had married his mother. However, Creon does not go mocking or publicizing the information about the king. Although Oedipus pleads that he be banished from Thebes, Creon treats him in a reasonable manner.

For 13th century BCE Egyptians, funerary art and rituals were a kind of necessary magic that worked to ensure the deceased a peaceful and eternal afterlife. The embalming practices ensured that the spirit of the dead, the ka, would be able to live on and enjoy its eternity in Heliopolis. The fear, as seen in the Judgement of Hunefer, was that the deceased might not make it into the sacred city at all—if Hunefer had not lived a virtuous life, he would have been thrown to Ammit and would perish completely. The role of these funerary images was to will the dead along on their journey, to help them achieve eternal life. It is not dissimilar to Paleolithic cave paintings which depicted herds of sleeping bison: by painting such an image, there was a sense in which it was believed that the situation could be brought to pass in real life, a moment of sympathetic magic.

Her actions were inexplicably caused by grief, but may be a part of a greater idea. For example, Medea's infanticide could have been a sacrifice in order to bring justice upon Jason and cleanse his house. In fact, Euripides makes it clear that Medea did not vengefully murder her own offspring because of jealousy, she did it to make Jason suffer in the long run. Medea refers to her sacrifice by saying, “And he whom law forbids/To stand in attendance at my sacrifices,/Let him see to it.” (34). Therefore, we can see that Medea believes her actions are not only a sacrifice, but also as a form of cleansing, since she can not risk being tainted by the presence of unclean individuals.
He is able to bring himself into being someone who is loved and trusted by the other around him because of the act that he was able to commit. He is able to bring himself into a better light when honoring the people with the death of his friend Julius. While he is able to bring himself into the act of killing Caesar, he was never able to take the blame for it which can be seen as a way of being weak, but he also decided to end his own life, which can be seen as a highly regarded act throughout Rome.

He is able to be a light for the people around him, while not actually being a hero because he was never given the satisfaction of being known for his crime.
Counterclaim Although the death penalty may bring some closure to families of the victims and even the victims themselves it still should be abolished because the negatives outweigh the positives. People could be murdered by the state even if they are innocent.

Conclusion In conclusion the idea that the death penalty should be abolished can be supported by many reasons that include extensive evidence.
Egyptians believed keeping ma 'at (harmony), remembering their actions affect others, and depending on each other were extremely important. One of the worst sins was being ungrateful. They also believed the gods kept balance in society and guided the people of Egypt. Men and women could be priests in Egypt.

CreOff There are many influential leader in this world that make excellent decisions and laws for their countries. But would you listen to a god or just another human? There are 7 billion people on Earth and there are different religions that believe in different gods but there are still only a few gods or lords.
