War gives soldiers the main purpose to kill, while for Paul and Xavier killing a human is not morally wrong. In addition, Paul, like Xavier haves regret and shame for all the comrades and enemies that they have lost. This causes them to go into a state of anger and guilt which they cannot control. This is seen after Xavier cannot think straight after destroying a base along with enemies, Xavier proclaims, “I replay it over and over in my head so that I don’t sleep all night, pulling the pin on my mill bomb, throwing it and watching it arc until it disappears into the crater, the concussion and screams. I have killed someone now” (Boyden, 75).
A combination of Macbeth’s ambition and paranoia lead to many senseless murders. He killed his best friend Banquo out of fear and he senselessly murdered Macduff’s family. The hallucination of Banquo’s ghost is a representation of Macbeth 's guilt, all of Macbeth’s guilt is manifested in the ghost. Macbeth states that he feels guilty because of the murders. “Ay, and since too, murders have been performed Too terrible for the ear.” (III, iv, 80-81) Seeing the ghost of Banquo is the breaking point for Macbeth.
After reading the short story, it could be concluded that the author is in fact traumatized and his mental trauma is what leads to his actions. This illness is what blinds him to the seriousness of his evil actions. It could also be concluded that the narrator killed all the people he was talking about with the hitchhiker.

Therefore answering the question on why his son left, his son must have seen that the hogs were squealing because the slop the father was feeding them was, in fact, the meat of the people he killed.
He is a murderer, and seems amoral in his ability to kill without remorse, or even without memory of killing. But he is also oddly moral. He has killed people since he escaped from prison (137), it’s likely he killed his own father (150), and it’s clear he is going to kill the grandmother and her family – he says so, almost regretfully, when he says “it would have been better for all of you, lady, if you hadn't of reckernized me" (147). When the men return from murdering Bailey, theyare carrying Bailey’s shirt, which The Misfit puts on (150). For him, Bailey is a problem while alive, and in death only has meaning for the shirt The Misfit needs.

This is what is called a mighty change in heart. These occur in stories almost indefinitely, stories like Interlopers by Saki. A story where both the men, despite changing their hearts, had been killed in the end. The two men in Interlopers deserved their fate because of three things; (1) they had tried to murder each other that night, (2) they had continued the family’s quarrel into the next generation,(3) because they wished to kill each other and they wandered off, in search of each other and got stuck, so no one found out that the feud was settled that night. The first reason that the men in the story by Saki deserved their fate was because they had been trying to kill each other that night.

But one may argue that Odysseus’ method of punishment was far too brutal, especially for the murder of the ladies who had dishonored his household. How could a man of respectable qualities do such a horrid thing, how could he soak his own home in blood? Even after Odysseus had killed Atinoos, those who begged mercy saying that Antinoos had led them to their dishonor, were slain brutally. All this harshness to others because Odysseus desired revenge on the number of men lusting for Penelope.
