Since we’re reading a work of fiction, consider that it is possible for the author to completely portray a character completely different from his character to illustrate an antithesis between the two ideologies. It is possible for an abolitionist author to write from the perspective of a racist to portray something important to people who would otherwise not identify with the author. By being completely abolitionist in a time where there were more racist people, so much so that there was no distinction that racism was bad in the first place, you become singled out and separated from the society. By writing with an ideology in mind for a character, others with that ideology are inclined to continue reading. This is especially true when the ideology in use is minority.

Very people see the way a cold-blooded killer can justify his or her actions. Very few people can understand why Hitler sanctioned murder. People don’t look at how Manson and his family thought they were doing the right thing. It doesn’t change the logical facts of the case, the things they were tried for (or would have been tried for if they could have found Hitler alive). It is possible to justify it. It is possible to become so involved in personal emotions and see no indication that there is anything wrong from other people, it may see like they want what you’re doing and you become so enchanted by the fictional story you or someone created that you ignore the facts.

The way language works, the way we communicate, the sole basis for mental illness, is based on shared consequences and a significance, meaning, that will bring the same consequences along with similar memories to the surface. By ignoring consequences or not having the consequences defined, individuals are prone to mental illness. Sometimes, consequences, however real and accepted, whenever they are too unpleasant, people tend to ignore them.

Despite the work being written in a way that supports Sanoma Cranden’s ideology, he is still in prison. He still killed people, and he is going to go away for a long time. Still, the investigators need something from him. There is no way he’s getting off, not with all the bodies he’s left littered throughout the world and all the families he left without a daughter or a mother, but they still need him. Despite seduction being a tool used for nefarious purposes, much like a gun, it is the person using the tool that makes it evil. The chief, an honored citizen of justice and respect, uses the same techniques as Cranden. The chief is a charismatic, kind man as demonstrated by the way he consoles the officer after Cranden aggravates him. There is a very strong contrast between Cranden and the Chief. Both characters are equal in strength and achievement for their respective ideologies. This is the ideal relationship for super charging the conflict and the plot. A superhero needs to fight a supervillain eventually or the story takes a different direction. That direction would reveal more personal weakness than personal strength. In the introduction I explain that is possible to change the world without really changing it. I also explain that it is important to work toward honor. These things are understated. I realize that, but I’m done preaching. People don’t get the message anyway. I’d rather show people than tell them. In the intro I simplify the consequence, and through the story I give that consequence the mental fodder to form significance, something that will differ from person to person.

The story still has a long way to go. I’m wondering how many people appreciate the complexity. It’s a lot of work to create something so intricate and detailed. If it’s not worth it and people are just looking for pulp fiction, I can do that. It makes me feel like I’m not applying myself, but if it’s what people want i can do it for a while. I don’t get very many people commenting. I’d like to see more of my readers comment before I start writing, but eventually I have to start somewhere. Like and comment. I appreciate the support.

I’m here at my computer. This blog is something I thought that I’d never do, but as I’m getting older (18 years old), I’m starting to realize all the problems with the world. With the exception of supernatural events ignoring how intertwined our minds are with the parts of the universe that create supernatural events, humans are the cause of all that is wrong with the world (or at least all that makes my life less livable as i get older).
