Fated to the End Fate the particular portion of good and evil given to a man when he is born Fate is given to a man and there is very little he has to say about The amount of good or evil in him is not up to him to choose His decisions will be based upon what he has been given and from there he will lead his life Oedipus was given his amount of good and evil His fate was determined to be evil in nature Not necessarily the classical meaning of evil but evil in that he was only out for himself and over looked many many signs that his life would end poorly his own blindness to the truth He had control of his life but was given a human nature that would lead it to end badly The prophecy didnt have to come true Fate gave him choices and he chose things that would lead to his own happiness without thought to others His selfishness leads to his demise There are many who thought that Oedipus had a tragic flaw that lead to his downfall Fate was his tragic flaw Fate made him what he was When he came to the crossroads with Laius he didnt need to kill him There were other options turn and leave or fight and leave He killed him though out of his own rage This was not a choice that a kind an honorable man would make He started his downfall with this move the beginning of his poor choices that would allow him to fulfill the prophecy of his life Prophecies that he didnt realize dont always have to come true it wasnt the prophecy that ended his life but the evil he was given by fate The way in which you lead your life allows prophecies to become truth or fail Oedipus didnt make decisions that would lead him away from prophecy
