“He has kill'd me, mother: Run away, I pray you!” This drives Macduff to take revenge by killing Macbeth fulfilling the prophecy and ending Macbeth’s life. If Macbeth did not have so much ambition, he would not have visited the witches or even try to kill Macduff’s family. These two events demonstrate how Macbeth’s great ambition resulted in his downfall.
Macbeth’s ego had a major impact on his behavior. “Which fate and metaphysical aid doth seem to have thee crowned withal. ”(act1 sc5 32-33) If it was no’t for his own ego, he would have never been influenced by the witches and Lady Macbeth to kill Duncan.
Misfortunate Souls Macbeth, a play about misfortune or should one say a misfortunate soul? In the First Act of Macbeth, we hear of this heroic character known as Macbeth...who later turns out to not be as heroic as we thought. This play has various hidden meanings, but most importantly it has one authentic theme: the nature of power. Macbeth bears the responsibility for the death of Duncan, his king, his kinsman, and his guest; however, he only gets away with all these murders with the help of Lady Macbeth. Nevertheless, he is accountable for most of the murders.
Furthermore, Macbeth has successfully assassinate Duncan without anyone has notice. Even so the guilt and ambition has change Macbeth into a different character from the beginning. He say after murder Duncan “What hand are here? Ha!
One line that states Macbeth is avarice is when Macbeth says “Now I’m decided, and I will exert every muscle in my body to commit this crime.” which he referring to killing King Duncan so that he can be King next because that is what the three witches told him.

One lesson that I ended this story was that one should not allow their ambition to overcome moral constraints, or they will be destroyed by it. We see how Macbeth was a person in power at the beginning of the story and how he after hearing about his prophecy from the witches, became greedy for it. Once he takes actions that are immoral to gain or secure power like when he kills Duncan, his guilt afterwards tear him apart. After hearing about the success from the murderers who killed Banquo, in Act 3, Scene 4, Macbeth starts his descent into insanity and mania, believing that he sees Banquo sitting at the table with the other lords. This is a very easy example of his guilt literally tugging at his psyche.
Throughout his stages of character development it is easy to depict what changes have occurred and what has influenced such a transition. In Act ii-iii it is presented that his evil conscience is what built his downfall. When Macbeth was informed that Duncan made him the Thane of Cawsor, he gives into the temptations suggested by the witches and becomes merciless towards the act of murder. In this case Macbeth states, “My thought, whose murder yet is but fantastical, shakes so my single state of man that function; is smother’d in sunrise.” (i.iii.139-141).

The text illustrates that Macbeth is trying to hide the fact that he killed the guards, in order to hide the truth of him killing King Duncan from the other citizens and court members of Scotland.

The horror becomes true to Jonas as seen by a release done by his father in this statement: “He killed it! My father killed it!” (Lowry 150). This treatment is very similar to that of torture and pain people in North Koreans face. Much like if you commit a crime in a society, you have the chance to be killed either by execution or overtime.
Macbeth is the cause all his own problems. A better than average case of this is after he murders King Duncan, and as opposed to staying on track, he slaughters the gatekeepers. “Oh, yet I do repent me of my fury, that I did kill them.” (Act 2/scene 3, line 107) Macbeth panics, imagining that leaving the watchmen alive will some way or another cause issues down the road for him.
The death penalty is a good thing at times it gets closure to the victim's families who've suffered a loss while Justice is being served.

Imagine finding a ransom note one day, telling you your son was taken and you must follow the directions given to get him back. Sadly, that is exactly what happened to Jacob Franks and Flora Franks. Murder has always been a big issue in big cities like Chicago. People are shot or stabbed in the heat of the moment, but not as common is a planned murder.
