Being an idealist is not the same as being naive. December 29, 2009 Posted by Mookie
Today's comic shows off just how much of a ridiculous idealist I am, and it's something I'm not ashamed of.

If I wanted to be truly realistic about the orc clans coming together under the rain I could spend another year telling that story alone. If orcs were more like humans they would debate about how the miracle truly came to pass, which of their belief systems was the "true" one that brought it about, the implications of another race interfering in a time of great religious significance and countless other things that you'd find in the news.

But no. In my ideal world, when people are presented with a miracle of great benevolence they find it in their hearts to put their differences aside and rejoice as one, truly remembering that we are all in this together and that compassion should not be delegated or debated, but simply shared... where even an old man scarred by racism and hatred can find the will to love and forgive again.

It breaks my heart that I will likely never see this sort of thing in the real world, so I put my ideals, however foolish and naive some may claim them to be, in my world.

There are times I wish humans were more like my orcs.

That's all from me for now.
Rock on.
