and wtf with ur reasoning that marga's suffering was their parents fault. if u say Mog is as u say he is, he should have brought the new borns up above. What did they do? Dude even if u feel that way about others , am pretty sure u wouldnt lock them up and say let me steal ur life force and inturn provide u with food.
It's her parent's fault in a sense that they wanted to be down there and live like that, so their child suffers, much like many people I know have suffered because their parents had some moronic decisions in their lives.
They did nothing, correct. It would be nice of the mages to bring up the newborns and let them decided on how they want to lead their life and shit, but real world doesn't work like that. The resources aren't limitless, these people don't live in the magic land where you can eat and have fun for the rest of your life. Resources are, in this case, the goi. If it wasn't for them and THEIR wish of how to live, the mages wouldn't have anything like trees full of fruit and shit.
Do you know about natural selection? Mages are the lesser animals here, and they have suffered way more. It's only natural that they recognize their superior being and make the goi what the goi once made them be. It's actually pretty light punishment for the goi here.
You will now tell me that you cannot judge one whole race and call them goi because that is generalising and that is wrong, and I would agree, but the world doesn't agree. It's simply the way the humans work. Do you know about nations who hate each other just because their ancestors warred for ages? It's not a myth, legend or whatever. It's the real deal. Hatred bred in your bones from the day you were born.
Now listen here, now is the best part : if the goi were born and bred in that hatred, they would hunt the mages down, burn them as witches, impale them on stakes because they "didn't predict the weather right" or "gave a false antidote", and that is genocide.
And mages, who are intellectually above many goi, just wanted to practice their arts in peace. So, instead of being bread in hatred of the goi, they are bred in an environment that sees goi as tools.
What is worse?
