"So 'don't be evil' for goodness sake."

Interesting -- their motto is about a state of being, rather than about their actions.

I picture Niven's protagonist in the second Ringworld book, at the beginning when he's wearing the tasp; he is only thinking good thoughts. The thugs break into his house, and he dispatches them while continuing to think good thoughts, then goes back to relaxing.

He took evil actions (people died, even though they were invaders and the liberty perspective says he was justified in these evil actions), but he is "being good".

I don't know if that's a great analogy, my brain hurts today.

I love you. I'm sorry. Please forgive me. Thank you. - Fully Informed Jury Association - Jin Shin Jyutsu (energy healing)
