Now, it plunged the book back under his arm, pressed it tight to his armpit…” This shows how Montag's self-centeredness overcame his compassion for others and how his actions will lead to his overall selfishness. Each piece of evidence pulled from the text all lead to the same conclusion in Fahrenheit 451. In life humans have shown that they are inherently selfish because they are greedy, they are self-centered and they risk the lives of others for their desires.

Nevermind the fact that Fortunato remains unaware of the wrong that he has thusly committed. Perception is reality: In his reality, the injury that he has been unfairly dealt, can only be righted with vengeance. Montresor considers himself to be the long suffering innocent party who has suffered “the thousand injuries” (Poe 14), of Fortunato. The matter then, is not only to get revenge, but to right they wrongs committed against him. Montresor is a well-layered character, filled with an unbridled hatred that drives his need for revenge.

By sentencing them to death, the court is committing a murder as well, even if it is of a guilty individual. Murdering or sentencing one to death row is not just, even if the individual is guilty of treason.
