Together, they killed a small town family for forty dollars in cash. Capote tells of their lives before the killing, on the run, and when they were on death row. It is clear to the reader that Perry was not born a criminal, but his horrible childhood coupled with mental illness allowed him to not feel the wrong he was doing. Dick, on the other hand, was born a criminal, and this is shown through his pedophiliac episodes and the fact he was able to be ashamed of what he was. Nurture is more important than nature because with good nurturing what nature has given somebody can be erased or made better.
Thus, Irwin’s death showed that the unfairness of blackmail overpowered Willie’s logic behind extortion, but in reality, both sides lost since Willie’s threat failed and Irwin’s newfound information led to his demise.

Both Remarque and Greene demonstrate that vulnerability leads to evil.

Similarly, Remarque uses Baumer’s belief that himself and his comrades “are not youth any longer,” to explain to the reader of the novel that these formerly innocent youths are now men destroyed by the evils in which they participated. Both authors use the demise of youths, who are generally associated with innocence, to demonstrate the power or wickedness as an influence on innocent
