This week’s “Objection” is very philosophical. Please take that into account before commenting. I encourage constructive conversation; NO flaming. Also, please take into account that despite what I say in this article, I’m not someone who lacks compassion. I do believe in a strict, straightforward, reason-driven, do what you can approach, but it’s not like I walk around everyday with an agenda. I’m human, I make mistakes just like everyone else. I’m just very hardened and generally pessimistic. Enjoy.
Judge: In the most recent episode (16) of Fate/Zero, we see the end of dear Lancer, douche Kayneth, and love crazy Sola-Ui. This leads to yet another debate between idealistic Saber and hardass Kiritsugu. Laevatein, what do you make of all this philosophical mumbo jumbo?
Laevatein: I personally take Kiritsugu’s side of things, as quite frankly, all the speeches about pride and honor are ironically very flawed.
Judge: I too agree with Kiritsugu. I believe the problem, or disconnect per se, between these heroes of old and modern day people is just that: they’re old, we’re new. Things change. Today’s wars and battles are not glorious, not honorable. It doesn’t help that in today’s world, we have come up with new ways to kill each other: unmanned fighters, nukes, biological warfare, etc.
