After the endless bouts of tyranny, not excluding the murders throughout this short play, Macbeth’s actions are met with a consequence: an army of 10,000 was coming to overthrow him, an army that includes rebels and the English forces, along with his own friends and some of his soldiers, and his final prophecy is coming to happen. While preparing to face the army, Macbeth boasts that he would’ve personally met them to fight if “Were they not forced with those that should be ours”(Shakespeare 5.5.5). As a result of his conduct, his own soldiers ditched him in favor of trying to remove Macbeth from the throne that he’s worked so hard and inhumanly to keep. His betrayals lead his own friends and army to betray him. One might refer to it as karma, what goes around, comes around.

The period inscribed incessant terror into the minds of innocent citizens. The entire country was destitute of trust and loyalty, Robespierre included. Robespierre, fixated with the newfound mindset to “smother the internal and external enemies of the Republic” ( Document G), ordered counter-revolutionists to be executed; a vile method to weed out the enemies. This method not only gave the order to exile with no substantial evidence of a crime, (Document E) went against the purpose of the Committee of Public Safety (Document E). This not only muffled the voices of the people and robbed the freedom they graciously fought the monarchy for, but also encrypted fear and distrust in the French government.
