The witches are the personification of evil and refuse to be bound by the laws of men and He whom they worship. In this sense, they have no respect for the Divine Right of Kings which was the belief that the order of the monarchy was chosen by God. In misleading Macbeth to believe he can subvert this order, the wirches indicate a lack of respect for the concept. The witches encourage sinning as a sport, and do not concern them with the consequences of the deeds of those led by them. Lady Macbeth is tortured into suicide by the deeds which she asked the spirits to support her in. Despite being 'filld...with direst cruelty' as she asked, she is still left unconsciously with 'remorse'. The witches choose to let her take her own path of destruction. They act only as catalysts upon their victims.
