Quote: The puppeteer is not god himself, but an "interpreter" of those words with power aspirations... a sacred politician.
Even then, there comes that point where a little power is too much. It reaches that point where such a person believes everyone needs "saved".
I can't help but follow through to the logical conclusion. It's that point where human life becomes so devalued that you wind up with these "soldiers of god" becoming the next suicide bombers or assassins. And with all that other stuff I thought about earlier I just felt a chill quake through my very soul.
Oh yes. I can understand the creepiness of it all.
Enough of that bummer. I feel like digging through my archives and firing up "Populous" on my 486SX. :-)
