Thank you, Badger
I'm actually trying to make that a central theme of my tales focusing on Julian. For all his bravado about how Section 31 is unjustified in what it does--the immense irony is, like Michael Corleone before him, he's constantly feeling led to do those very things he condemns, in order to take on those he sees as the enemy.
Though he acknowledged it somewhat to Ezri in my "Annihilation Fantasies"...in effect, he can't seem to stop--because, as far as he's concerned, it's what has
to be done. And as a result...his words of condemnation ring more and more hollow, as the years go on.
Thank you all for reading! Come tomorrow night...we'll get going once again.
