harry potter deathly

In Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, why would a person take sides with Lord Voldemort and join the Death Eaters? |


I think that the first answer is largely correct.  Some people want to have power above all else and will do anything to get power, even if the things they do are bad.

In my opinion, one other reason, though, is to get revenge.  If you think about it, you can imagine that many in the wizarding world could feel a lot of anger toward the Muggles.  The wizards really have more power than Muggles and might feel they are actually superior.  Even so, they are the ones who have to hide out and not be open about who they are because they don't want their world to be found out.

So imagine if you had to hide from these Muggles.  It would be understandable if you came to resent them and even to hate them.  So when you combine this resentment with a desire for power, it is more understandable as to why someone would become a Death Eater.
