I don't think there has ever been a problem with people regarding their
OWN lives as cheap. I do not presume to understand nor dictate animist policy,
but I would assume that your efforts would be better spent by bringing
your resources to bear against those who kill rather than those who die.
You seem to harbour the strange notion--even stating as much in your post--that
dieing is somehow a choice. It is a creative idea, but it is neither true, nor useful
as a blind assertion. For the life you propose--a life without the risk of death is not
really life. The gods' gift of multiple lives has allowed us to avoid this false
life that you seem to want for avalon. It is a good thing that wiser
heads than yours order and nurture this world, or the land would soon
be a bog of mediocrity and tedium.
