what is the moral of the novel invisible man ?

The Invisible Man, can also be see as a discourse between power and morality, as it questions a person's ability to be moral when blessed with great power. Throughout history we have seen the rise of tyrants and dictators, who were ordinary men, before they got to a position of power and unleashed a reign of terror, without any thought to the moral aspects of it. The question hence arises whether morality is a social construct , as people stick to a moral code of virtue because they do not want to be dishonoured or discredited by the society that they are a part of and once they are above social lynching, their moral code becomes subjective . Hence the moral of the novel, Invisible man, can be taken to be responsible and moral, when we attain great power and utilise it for the good of humanity, rather than personal gains at any cost.
