Quote from: TobiasI wonder is Self is always in support of Sin, though. Maybe it's an upper cap, under which Sin-use is risk-free, and above which, sin use is dangerous?
Quote from: TobiasSee, I remember from highschool that if you were at the (semi-)top, you stayed there by pummeling down those below you on the ladder, while receiving a pummeling from those above you. There were always picked-on kids that couldn't get out of the cycle (instead of the quick learning if you have a low score, as this proposal's mechanics do, if I looked correctly).
QuoteI wonder is Self is always in support of Sin, though. Maybe it's an upper cap, under which Sin-use is risk-free, and above which, sin use is dangerous? And being forced to step on up to those high-power sin effectes when confronted by someone with a high Sin rating?
Quote from: SydneyYou do unto others as others have done unto you. Beating on those weaker than you (less cool, less smart, less strong, whatever) is merely the effect, the thing that becoming more Sinful allows you to do; the cause is the degradation you yourself have received.
Quote from: Eero Tuovinen....Sin is a solution to conflict, not a cause of the same. It's because of the human condition that Sin works so well and is many times the only solution, not because conflict inherently blackens you. That's the basis of the Christian morality, and cannot be removed here.
Quote from: Sydney Freedbergwaiting to turn from burden to weapon the minute you decide to wield it on its terms -- by becoming evil yourself?
