Title: Always the Cause
Fandom: Harry Potter
Pairing/Characters: Misc. Death Eaters
Rating: R for Dark Ideas and Bad Philosophy.
Morality was not absent from their world. They discussed it constantly. Intelligent, they debated, considering the hierarchy of their values. It was war. That necessitated a division between morality on this side of their victory and morality once their proud rule had commenced. They did not believe themselves evil. They could not have born to act against their principles when the price was so high. They chose Grindelwald's Greater Good as their highest moral principle. They focused on the shining world that was to be, placing it above their pain and loss, and the harm they inflicted upon their foes.
