What about the children? If learning the truth about where they came from and what their parents did strips them of all the propaganda they were taught about being members of a Master Race with a destiny to cleanse the galaxy, so much the better. It will stop the problem cropping up in another generation. After all those who fail to learn from the past are destined to repeat it.
Sorry. But my point still stands. Some of the BLs actually had a conscience - no matter how small. I think Tolwyn had a conscience. He was just really good at suppressing it to do the "rightous" thing.
And how does this make them better in any way? Know what you do is wrong and going ahead with it is even worse than not knowing the differance between right and wrong in the first place.
[BTW, I think it's been mentioned before, but the Flash-pac fits the BL philosophy of efficiency by killing the people inside the ship, but leaving the hull more or less intact. As opposed to "wasteful" torpedos, which go out and blow the ship (and everything in it) to smitherines]
Yeah, kind of like nuetron bombs. Kills all the people and leaves the property intact. After all, we can't waste anything that will help the Herronvolk in their battle to supplant the sub-humans, can we?
