Odysseus is also a horrible father: Odysseus is absent from Telemachus’ life from birth, and when he does return, he manipulates his son for his benefit of his massive revenge scheme. Even after using his son, he still has competitiveness with him; he didn't let Telemachus shoot the arrow that would have led to Telemachus’ glory and a boost in self-confidence.

And she wed him after he killed his father”. The fact that Oedipus and Epicaste get married after he killed his father, Odysseus is probably worried that the same might happen to him.

The reason why I think this is because he is a very selfish person. Cassius couldn’t even bare himself to commit suicide, he had to have someone else stab him. Also the main reason why he didn’t like Caesar in the first place was because he didn’t understand why Caesar got to be king over anyone else. Cassius is also very manipulative, he basically uses Brutus’ good for bad and turns him into a bad person a little bit. Though if I had to choose from Brutus and Cassius I would have to say the Brutus is my favorite.
So therefore in this situation killing should be justified. A reason why george should be justified is because he says if “i was alone i could live so easy” which you never say to a guy like lennie.
