Macbeth Debate of whether he should kill King Duncan. By Joao

In our class we debated whether Macbeth should kill King Duncan or not. Here is my opinion. What is yours?

I undoubtedly think that Macbeth shouldn’t murder or slaughter King Duncan because the people in Scotland wouldn’t want a king who murders other kings. Its 100% certain that he mustn’t do it because Macbeth will have to live with the guilt for the rest of his life. Some might think that he ought to do it, but I would argue that he probably ought not to do it because Malcolm is still alive so he wouldn’t become king.

On the other side of the argument, some people might say that he must kill King Duncan because King Duncan is quite old and Macbeth might be a better king than him. Furthermore, he will be justified in killing him because they think that King Duncan is a bad king. In my opinion, Macbeth should kill King Duncan because he will have to wait a very long time to be King if he doesn’t get chosen.
