Even though Gilgamesh is the main character, his treatment of people was unacceptable and made his people hate him. “ As king, Gilgamesh was a tyrant to his people... he had the privilege of sleeping with their brides.”(15). Gilgamesh was not a good person, even when he came back he was not seen as a hero by his people, the past hurt the present. Also, usually a hero comes back with pride and gifts but in the epic, “As the end of his journey. And returned to Uruk.
He doesn’t really want to accept his explanations. The first theory includes thoughtful planning, thinking it is the idea that it separates people in his community from animals and being completely psychotic.

This conversation goes on for a while before they realize everyone has a different opinion. Misopeliades tell the men that he thinks it’s a bad idea for Achilles to go and fight in war because he never does anything right. Misopeliades feels Achilles will only make things worse than what they are already. Misopeliades thinks he is only thinking of going to the war because he wants to be seen as respected by his people.

One reason others feel differently is because of the unsightly part of humanity. For example, in the beginning of the Crucible, Miller explains how Parris “cut a villainous path” to become reverend and how “there is very little good to be said for him” (1100). People similar to Parris exist everywhere which roots the argument of inner conflict constantly tieing with humanity. However, one couldn’t openly act in such a way, it would ruin an important reputation in society. In fact, Joseph McCarthy himself suffered this consequence: “It was his clash with the Army that would lead to his downfall” (Robert 3).
People of Uruk complain about the nature of Gilgamesh’ tyranny to gods as they can no longer tolerate the king’s unjust behaviors: “His companions are kept on their feet by his contests, [the young men of Uruk] he harries without warrant. Gilgamesh lets no son go free to his father, by day and by [night his tyranny grows] harsher. (Gilgamesh, I.166-170)” People rely on the king to protect their rights and the country, but Gilgamesh does the opposite by taking away their sons and daughters for his personal needs. The people of Uruk feel oppressed under Gilgamesh’s rule as Gilgamesh gives himself the right to sleep with women on the first night of marriage and to take away sons from the household to appease his appetite for war games. Instead of feeling safe under a divine ruler, people feel threatened and pray to gods to protect them.
Human beings will never get along with each other because everyone have their own desires and goals that keep them fighting for. In the book Leviathan, Thomas Hobbes describes three factors that leads to the state of war. The three factors are competition, distrust, and glory. People always compete with other because they cannot enjoy a single thing together. Human beings are never satisfied with what they have.
In the beginning Gilgamesh was oppressing his people and did not fit the profile of a noble ruler because he was cruel and abused his strength. His people even claimed, “His arrogance has no bounds by day or night” (Gilgamesh). Gilgamesh did not handle the tragic event of his friend’s death as well as Rama handled his banishment, but what makes Gilgamesh an epic hero is that he grew stronger and wiser from his journey. At the beginning of the journey, Gilgamesh was scared of many things being alone, losing his power, and ultimately of death because he did not think he could fulfill his life with restricted time. After his long journey and his encounter with Utnapishtum, Gilgamesh learned that all he can do is to live life to the fullest and not fear death, but instead he must embrace it as a reason to enjoy the present.

Miller believes that they don’t understand the importance of football as a sport because they only see it for its negative statistics. The people who want to ban football because they don’t give a chance. They just speak on how violent the sport is, while also lacking even the slightest knowledge of the actual topic at hand. This is why Miller calls all of them ignorant because they talk about how many major injuries that players can receive from the ‘violent sport,’ while also forgetting that players willingly sign concussion sheets. This means that players know that they could possibly be harmed, but that’s with any sport.
What has distinguished Vietnam veterans from most of their predecessors is that the public 's detestation of the war seemed to be directed onto them, as if it was their fault. Thus they did not return as heroes, but as men suspected in participating in shocking cruelty and wickedness or feared to be drug addicts. The combination of society rejecting them, the government ignoring them, and their families not understanding to them, caused Vietnam veterans to self-destruct both mentally and sometimes physically.
