I believe this because he could be an extremely violent leader and because he never fully reigned over one of the places he conquered/ruled. He is a villain because he murdered thousands of people and soldiers from different nations. Alexander tortured many of his victims and then he killed them.

In the cause of Oedipus, Antigone’s father, his father learned that Oedipus was to kill him and marry his wife, Oedipus’ own mother, so he tried to avoid that fate by banishing Oedipus. He unknowingly put into play the events that led up to Oedipus killing him and marrying his wife.

A community is supposed to help one another not leave eachother out. Due to the people “perceiving Sethe as a monster for having killed her child, the community projected its own guilt for its complicity in that act" (Winsbro 152). The refusal to publically own up to their guilt the people hold for not warning Sethe, creates a separation between Sethe and everyone. This in turn adds to shunning created by the fear the community holds against her. After many years of alienating Sethe’s family the community was informed of the reasoning behind Sethe’s action.
Throughout the book Malala uses pathos to get the reader to see her point of view and to get the emotions of the readers all stirred up to feel sympathy for her and anger towards the Taliban. For example during their takeover Malala remembers when “Fazlullah had set up a public court to enforce his edicts, and his men were now flogging or killing policemen, government officials, and other men and women who disobeyed him” (Malala, 48). Malala was appealing to the emotions when she included this into her story, she wanted the reader to feel her pain and what she witnessed. Another example of pathos in ‘I Am Malala’ is when one of her father's closest friends got shot his name was Zahid Khan (Malala, 124). Just like her father, Zahid Khan was an outspoken opponent of the Taliban but it just so happened that he was the unlucky one to be shot.

While he did many things to help move forth the political process and helped make important decisions regarding nullification, he also further disenfranchised Native Americans as well as he was responsible for destruction of the National Bank.
