Answers
In Chapter Twenty-Four, Okonkwo is waiting to see if his people will fight against the injustices done to them. When he stands up to the messenger who orders their meeting to stop and kills him, the other people of the tribe do not rally behind him but instead ask why Okonkwo acted as he did. This is the last evidence that Okonkwo needed to determine that his way of life as he knew it was over. He does not want to live in a tribe that will not fight against its enemies.
