The Great Gatsby displays the disintegration of the American Dream along with how it affects Jay Gatsby, Daisy Buchanan, and Tom Buchanan. Firstly, Gatsby is willing to do anything in his power to recapture Daisy's love for him to such an extent that he takes the blame for Myrtle’s death instead of Daisy.

On one hand, Grenouille cannot be innocent and is far from humane because he is responsible for murdering innocent girls for his own pleasure.

Instead of abandoning them and taking their supplies to kill them, he just did it to benefit himself. Either way, they would’ve died, and he would’ve deserved his death. General MacArthur: He “deliberately sent his wife’s lover, Arthur Richmond, to his death.” Here is another case where the person didn’t kill someone themselves, but caused their death intentionally. He sent Richmond because he knew that anyone who went would be killed, and therefore technically commit murder. If he believes Richmond should have died for doing something to him, then he deserves his death because he did something to someone else as well.
