Few comments:

You talked about moral and immoral actions but you did not define what constitutes a moral and immoral action precisely enough. You said:

Within "humanity" what is moral and immoral often differs among large groups. In regards to suicide, some individuals think its perfectly moral, others completely immoral (like certain religious scriptures as you said), and some depending on the circumstances.
Christian interpretations of morality. I should have stated that but I could always elaborate upon these ideas in the future.

I'll admit that fallacy of thought, if I was to publish this work I would expand on many of my points.

You may want to include mention of that parallel circumstance also within that particular section.

Another thing to possibly include is that within "Macbeth", you could also consider Lady Macbeth to be a judging third party who was existent in the setting. She, like Neytiri, despises the main character for being weak but instead leads him to immoral actions instead of moral actions.

Well written. Hope to read more from you in the future.
Mmmmh. Interesting expansion of thought.

Thank you for your comments anywway.
Live long and prosper
