Terry Goodkind engages in rape fantasy? posted 29 July 2004 in Literature DiscussionTerry Goodkind engages in rape fantasy? by Aldarion, Sorcerer-of-Rank

A reader at wotmania posted this, but I don't know the source (was it an email mail list thing?) Read and be amazed:

Readers are rare people. I feel a special connection with them. I try always to do my best for them; I try to write the truth. Fantasy allows me this. The Sword of Truth is a cry of defiance into the descending storm of tyranny. It is a cry for this very special group of people-people able to understand: readers.

My study of history has taught me that no civilization can endure the kind of self-indulgent destruction of social fabric and family structure we are witnessing.

Sooner or later an enemy will come, as they always do, and they will be ruthless. They will hold a blade to our throats. They will pillage and murder and rape us because we have failed to value the hard won gift of freedom and to honor our responsibility to preserve the flame of its true meaning.

As Richard says, anarchy wears the robes of tolerance and understanding.

And you still think I write fantasy?

The barbarians are at the gate, my friends, and they are us.

The thought that I've been raping Goodkind because I disagree vehemently with his politics makes me rather nauseous <!-- s;) --><img src="{SMILIES_PATH}/icon_wink.gif" alt=";)" title="Wink" /><!-- s;) --> view post
