(3.3 29+32) The fatal flaw of the third conspirator, Cassius is that he is scared of what will happen to him after he murdered Caesar. Cassius and Brutus though that Anthony will turn Rome against them and realize what they did was wrong and their traitors. Cassius’s famous quote is “” Men at times are masters of their fates; the fault; dear Brutus, is not in our stars. But in ourselves””.

When he says “Drive me out of this country as quickly as may be to a place where no human voice can ever greet me.” (Ln.
This being the immediate cause of the treaty's failure shows that Wilson truly was to bullheaded to compromise and talk things out. Historian Bailey said that after Wilson decided that he wanted deadlock because he thought it would arouse public opinion, there was a tidal wave of public opinion and was given a second chance. However, his stiff-necked personality caused him to throw that opportunity away. “first by spurning compromise, and then by spurning the Lodge reservations.” Wilson just throws away opportunities to make both sides happy and cares for nothing more than himself. It was not the strength of the opposing forces, both liberal and conservative, but rather the stubbornness of Wilson that led to the defeat in the Treaty of Versailles.

Crooks begins to antagonise Lennie, saying things such as, “Le’s say he wants to come back but he can’t. S’pose he gets killed or hurt so he can’t come back.” and, “ jus’ s’pose he don’t come back. What’ll you do then?” In the beginning these thoughts just confused Lennie, which highly amused Crooks. However, when Crooks continued to antagonise Lennie, Lennie became angry with Crooks. We see this when the author uses “he demanded” instead of, “he said”.
However, people like Winston who lived early enough to know the feeling of having real freedom, are frustrated. Winston is a rebel amongst his peers and instead of following Big Brother tries to secretly rebel. He feels any attraction to anyone or anything that is some form of rebellion whether it is julia, the Book, or anything else.

Voltaire shows how Candide slowly realizes this logic when he encounters constant conflict and disaster after leaving the Baron’s castle and his old “perfect world”. Candide sees how almost everyone in this world acts selfishly only to reap benefits for themselves and take away from their fellow humanity. Some people probably think that Voltaire may come off as a pessimistic, but he really is just trying to show how foolish optimistic people and corrupt religion can be when you live in a world that constantly challenges you and makes you suffer so much. Essentially Voltaire is trying to tell us that the happiness of humanity is impossible, because the only “real” life is the life where you endure good things and bad things and not the life where you live in the best of all worlds and have no problems and everything is handed to

Also, he emphasized about his dislike of the formation of political parties fearing the repercussions of such an establishment.
