(159) While his father does not place a large importance on wealth, his extremely wealthy uncle proves to have a lasting effect on his development as Duddy is instilled with a desire for wealth. Likewise, Macbeth is easily tempted into killing and manipulating many simply due to the desire for power and social praise.

Individuals can easily become tired of the hate that divides one society into two. Joint efforts of individuals that are bound by non-violent values are the pinnacle force in resolving a brutal conflict. Driven by the cause of a united society, their qualities and beliefs begin to appeal to others burdened by the conflict.
