One of the better ways to deal with demons is to get really, righteously angry with them. Most demons are cowards.
that or you can ignore them
But then you’d be feeding your demon of rage. Dismissal is the best strategy.
One’s intentions are what’s important.
intentions are worthless
actions are what matter
hitler intended to make the world better for his fellow man (improper definitions of man but still) and his action was genocide
That’s taking the statement a bit far, I think. What I’m getting from you is this: Someone who makes the wrong decision and ends up screwing up meant to mess up, regardless of what their intentions were. Conversely, someone who does something good but has an ulterior, sinister motive for performing this good deed is overall a good person. Hitler is an extreme example here (Godwin’s law, by the way). What he did falls into a realm beyond intentions and actions. I’m pretty sure he knew what he was doing.
Actions don’t necessarily reflect the kind of person someone is. Intentions do matter.
Also, I’d like to say that while cynicism is sometimes appropriate, the situations in which that is true are pretty few and far between. Especially commenting on a webcomic like this. I may seem to be blowing smoke out my ass – Hell, What I wrote may not even make sense – but I think your comment was (1) slightly ridiculous and (2) deserving of a long, preachy response such as the one I just wrote. And if you think “tl;dr”, you’re entitled.
Results are concrete intentions are self reported. George McClellan was a great administrative general but his concern with avoiding defeat in detailed made him a crap combat general. Intentions might mitigate but the do not alter results.
whoa… the face light show like what Bud does…
Jin and Brandi can do it too. I know Jin has at least once, not sure if Brandi has at this point, but I know she can.
Yes, all three golems are, in a sense, clay dolls, each with an important Glyph carved into their heads… which makes Monica showing a glyph of her own very… interesting.
What’s she afraid of?
(“Anger is always fear in drag” – Spider Robinson)
That’s a nice quote and all, but as a personal rule I don’t usually trust opinions which use the words: “always”, “never” and “impossible”
That is a good quote, and it’s very often true. When in doubt, I always (yes, ALWAYS) trust Unca Spider. He’s a very wise man. After all, he did come up with the Law of Conservation of Pain. “Shared pain is lessened, shared joy is increased”.
