Forums: Index > Temple of Gaia > Why are the forces of CHAOS depicted as being such brutes, if they stand for freedom?

I actually want to consider the forces of CHAOS as the good guys, but I don't think Atlus is presenting the alignments neutrally enough. My primary focus is Atlus' biased perception of the CHAOS alignment. Those who stand for it are shown a being brutish, but they stand for freedom! If the LAW alignment is antagonistic towards people, as Great Mara puts it, shown the forces of CHAOS be pretty much the opposite of antagonistic, even if they are for anarchy?

Think of who would be in charge in a world of absolute freedom. In the beginning, it would most likely be whoever is the strongest. And strength isn't the same as being a brute, obviously, but these are the type of people who would most likely try to take charge. In a chaotic world, you would have to constantly fight with all the people who think that walking all over you is a PART of their freedom. And it's not like they show LAW as any better. You need to keep in mind that it's from the perspective of how people would view it, too, kind of like a metaphor. For people who are from an already neutral society, they would view neutral as correct, and those on the outside as extremists. And the characters generally are from neutral societies, obviously. So you're viewing it how they would be likely to view them, all their prejudices included. Besides, Lucifer isn't TOO much of a brute. All the alignments are pretty antagonistic in their own way.
