I'm curious, Geordy... What makes you think we're the "bad guys?"
I remember this scene very good. Its right at the beginning of book 1 when Parson made a remark about it because they are using evil units
. So GK is an evil side in the games sense - but in my
sense, too. How do I know? Well, first of all, I understand that it takes alot of intellectual power to realise when someone is pulling the wool over your eyes. Which is what Stanley is doing in the very quote you utilized:
When everyone is out to get you, you must be doing something right.
Right? Wrong. Read this quote again and this time switch on your brains.
Like they're not ruling by violence and fear.
This one gives it all away. And it tells us what we know for sure about the leadership on both sides. While we know next to nothing about Jetstones style of leadership Stanley himself tells us about GKs. Violence and fear. Pretty evil, dont you think?
BTW: I have a hard time imagining Slately with a whip. Whereas Wanda with a whip... hmmm...
