I'm not sure how to present this in the discussion or even if I should, but the dialogue going on right now in a blog I follow about the label of "evil" (mostly in the context of fiction) brought this quote to mind and I wanted to record it somewhere.

"Everyone dies. It's the final and only lasting Justice. Evil exists; it is intelligence in the service of entropy. When the side of a mountain slides down to kill a village, this is not evil, for evil requires intent. Should a sentient being cause that landslide, there is evil; and requires Justice as a consequence, so that civilization can exits. There is no greater good than Justice; and only if law serves Justice is it good law. It is said correctly that law exists not for the Just but for the unjust, for the Just carry the law in their hearts, and do not need to call it from afar. I bow to no one and I give service only for cause." - Journeyman Protector Jaster Mereel
