The Courtesy of Friendship

What do you expect from your friends?  That may sound like a silly or strange question.  I would expect most would answer this question with expectations of respect, love, mutual interest, humor, and a willingness to make you a priority when applicable.  In return most people would say they would expect themselves to do the...

Wholly Evil Peoples in Fiction

It has become a common theme in fiction to have specific people groups or fictional races depicted as wholly evil.  If they aren’t portrayed as completely evil, the people who make up the antagonist army are at least rarely if ever seen in a non-belligerent way.
