Proteus, god of the seato Everyone

Perhaps I was hoping for too much when I wrote \"But;using their protection to withstand attacks so they may profit from the loss of life of an enemy citizen seems to be pretty much opposed to the ideals under which pacifism was instituted. \" back at po

st 14571.

I apparentally foolishly assumed that people would understand that profitting fairly directly from the deaths of others by active participation in an act was forbidden.

But since I didn't specify that it was not ethical for a pacifist to follow bashers and reap experience from the deaths of monks and orcs etc, I find that pacifists are actively engaging in this activity. What utterly confounds me is that they see not

hing wrong with this, or at least their rationalization doesn't allow them to admit there is something wrong.

When in doubt, use this litmus test for actions the mantle of pacifism allows you do perform--would Aldaron approve of me doing this in front of him in his temple? That should give you a fair guideline for action until you can consult Brigantia or fin

d an experienced animist to ask since they constantly live pacifist lives.
