Who is your favorite champion to duel? Who's your least favorite champion in general?
My least favorite, obviously, is Singed.
Riven, ready for two deep questions?
What do you think of fate? Does it exist and guide us all down an inexorable path? Or can we forge our own destinies?
What is justice? Do you believe in moral relativism or absolutism? Is something always right or wrong or is there gray area?
I'm not convinced on the idea of fate. There's something that itches at my mind occasionally, like things are connected somehow, but I can't bring myself to believe that everything is predetermined. It makes no sense to me. Things like weather and emotions are much too spontaneous for that.
Right? Wrong? Who decides these things?
When we get down to the very basics, people have a general idea of what is right and wrong. But beyond that, it's all a blur. Everyone has their own opinions, beliefs, perspectives. These are all things they've learned or developed. What people call justice is an attempt to bring back those basics and apply them to the complicated areas. Actions like 'He did something wrong, so something wrong should be done to him.'
In my opinion, the best justice would be to show someone the weakness in their thoughts or actions. Show them they're wrong. Convince them you're right. Make them change. That's the only way we'd ever get people thinking the same way.
But then again, that may be wrong. I haven't spent much time thinking about it. I'll have to do so in the future.
Why is it that you believe in the Noxian ideal of the strongest, regardless of where they come from or who they are, deserve power, but when someone who's doing the same thing manages to inconvenience you (Singed), you immediately believe the entire ideal is shattered and corrupted and proceed to become emotional about it?
Tell me, if one Noxian were to develop a machine that could annihilate the entire continent, an unprecedented amount of power, would you bow down to him?
Now, say a Noxian were to best everyone else in a duel. Possibly take down an army himself. Prove that he were the strongest in the land. That is the kind of person I'd bow down to. And that is the way Noxus should be.
It's not about power and destruction. It's about proving one's worth. It's about respect. It's about an individual's strength.
People like Singed are cowards who hide behind their creations, and are weak without them. They are unworthy.
