The how and why of it all…

So… this’ll be one of those thinky, deep and heavy, what-would-you-do type of posts. So flex those powers of logic and reason and read on…

 

QWIXOTIC is a world where the worst of the worst has happened through political and economic means, along with the downfall that is the human race. Because of the way the world is, characters in the QWIXOTIC Universe have had to make choices and decisions that may go against their core personal beliefs, and in some cases even religion. The main character QWYNN faces death and destruction on a daily basis– sometimes of her own volition and amusement– but her actions against the corrupt Server help benefit the greater good in forcing a change in their world, for the better. HUMAYRA, a Muslim woman, has decided to fight against the forces of domination, even though violence is abhorred by her personal code of ethics and morality. Even NAB, has done things that would traumatize a child of his age and innocence, but only because the alternative was death.

 

This leads to me to ask the following of you: Will the ends, ever justify the means… for you?

 

Gratefully, not a lot of us in the real world have to face extreme choices that do not affect our lives beyond our careers, lifestyle, family, etc… However, the decisions we do make– are they guided by thoughts of morality and ethics? Do you ever think about the ‘how’ of your actions… or does the getting of the ‘what’ matter more? Does success, wealth and power take precedence over our conscience and morality? Do you ever think about how it is we must live or lives… or does having the best life matter more?
