As we continue through the entire book we see that the actions of Macbeth and Lady Macbeth come from there deep seeded obsession for power and control. As the Bible states the love of money is the root of all evil, this I believe to be the controlling idea, let me explain. first of money in its self is a representation obviously everyone who has ever lived has not loved money because it looks cool or it feels good or its just cool to have, money is so deeply loved because of things it does for you all the things it buys such as "love" power material pleasures popularity. so when I talk about money in the verse: the love of money is the root of all evil, I mean money as power so really in Macbeth's case the love of power is the root of all his evils. Throughout the whole book we see Macbeth and lady Macbeth's actions support this as they were all horrible actions some they even admitted they didn't want to do, but because of their love for power they followed through with these horrible crimes when really the only pro to their cause was power. There was nothing else that would've come out better for them but only for that reason, they let the love for power take over. It’s an unfortunate reality not even in this fictional book, but in the world today it remains a timeless them: the love of money is the root of all evil, as we see time and again in the real world, corruption after corruption from government’s that let their love for money that buys their power cloud their decision making, contributing to their evil deeds. The controlling idea was clearly represented throughout Macbeth and unfortunately still remains a constant theme in the world today.
