He lived in fear of the things he would do. His parents did not want his fate to come true so they sent him away, and tried to have him killed. If they had not sent him away and ignored the fate, it might not have come true. He was guilty of killing his father, but not of incest, and it was the knowledge of his fate that assisted in it coming true. However, he was guilty of murder.
This leads us onto another deceptive act, and that is where Macbeth frames King Duncan’s guards for the murder of King Duncan. “When we have mark'd with blood those sleepy two / Of his own chamber and used their very daggers, / That they have done't?” (1.7.555-60) Macbeth marks the clothes of the guards with King Duncan’s blood and uses the guard’s daggers to kill King Duncan with. Doing that would eliminate any suspicion of him having any involvement in the crime. Macbeth knew that if he had succeeded with framing the guards, he would be let off as an innocent man. Macbeth’s greed, hunger for power, and deception lead us to the conclusion that Macbeth is solely guilty of this crime.
This is showing that Macbeth had the murderers kill the little boy in front of his mother. This is significant because it shows the cruelty Macbeth has for killing an innocent boy and going after his mother just for vengeance towards his father. Macbeth shows many characteristics throughout the story, but in the end is a very cruel
When George heard this, he decided that if Lennie was going to die, he wanted him to die peacefully and painlessly; therefore causing George to shoot Lennie. If Curly hadn't ran after Lennie looking to give him a painful death, George would have tried to save Lennie and keep him alive instead of deciding to shoot him. This shows how other people actions can affect someone too. People will respond differently to situations depending on who's around them, their past experiences, and what other people are doing. These are only some of the factors to why someone might act one way in a situation and another person might act differently in the same situation.
However, several times in the novel Lennie uses violence to solve his problems because he does not know what else to do. Unfortunately, his actions have consequences, the most crucial being when he accidentally kills Curley’s wife, which culminates in Lennie's own death. George also solves his problems with violence; his solution to the death of Curley’s wife is to kill Lennie himself. He believes that if he just kills Lennie his problem will be solved. However, he would have to spend the rest of his life thinking that he has killed his best friend, and that he can never atone for it.
Another situation where you should not be held accountable is also in the story “the most dangerous game” Page 49 Paragraph 142 It says “And now,” said the general, “I want to show you my new collection of heads. Will you come with me to the library?’’ General zaroff was going to show Rainsford his collection of human heads. Later on in the story Rainsford kills general zaroff. I think that Rainsford should not be held accountable because if he didn't kill faroff, Zaroff would have killed him. Rainsford aso saved all the other people's lives that Zaroff had captured and was planning to hunt and
This evidence shows that Curley was going to kill Lennie, and do it in a vengeful and unforgiving way. George only wanted Lennie not to suffer a painful death in which he didn’t deserve. To achieve a painless death, George shoots Lennie in the back of his head to make for a quick and painless death. This is a time when killing is justifiable. In the novella, the author states “But Curley’s gonna want to shoot’im.
I think free choice is way more responsible for destruction of Macbeth rather than fate is because it is like karma, what comes around goes around. Since Macbeth had killed so many people it makes sense how in the end Macbeth had soon been killed himself. Macbeth thought the only way to survive in peace, he had to kill a bunch of people, which is completely unreasonable. The witches had told him his fate and that he would become king soon enough but he decided to go against his fate and make his own free choices. Macbeth caused his own destruction by his own reckless actions.
Ronald Carlson wanted nothing more but justice for his sister who had been murdered.

He talks about how watching the execution left him full of horror and emptiness. Ronald asks a question that should be addressed he said, “Our justice system should not be dictated by vengeance.” He asked, “As a society, shouldn’t we be more civilized than the murderers we condemn?” We should be more civilized, we shouldn't have the right to sentence people to death for three reasons, it puts innocent lives at risk, it's extremely costly
First off George had killed Lennie, which is considered murder. Also when Lennie killed Curley's wife he could not comprehend what he was doing, until he already had done it. What George did was selfish, and he just wanted to get Lennie off his hands. If George took a moment to think over the situation he could have found a better way to handle the problem. He could've tried to explain to the men what really happened, or they could have went on the run again.
