We've already brought up this point when I first came up with this idea of Doc's goals. He cares but not to the point he's going to give up in case some innocent little girl stands between him and his goal.

Thats not true, his current actions support those records of him.

And even if he does do good in his past, does that mean he could be forgiven just like that?
There's little known about the time he supposedly committed his first crime. It could matter a lot.

Would you be talking like that if Doc wins and makes the majority of people turn to his side? Only those with power can forgive.

He's shown little enough sign of that so far. Sure, Scaglietti boasts about his humanitarianism, but his own attitude to the products of his research - and his willingness to cause further destruction after his mission objectives were already accomplished - contradict his own words.

I'll throw it back at you, PROVE IT.

Prove to me that he cares, I've done all the examples that he don't, show me one action that prove he cares.

Be fair. We only saw a speech one minute long. He actually did go over all the main points. He explains why he's doing this, shows a fraction of the potential his technology might bring, and puts his hand out. He currently built a weapon, but it is easy as dirt to see how easily making over A mages might bring some benefits to society. That's about all anyone can do in a one-minute speech - speak his introduction.

The fact that we couldn't verify a single death except maybe for Ginga's mom is a clue. A few small things also point to it. 10 set his cannon in a way so that it broke the wall but nobody inside was killed. 6 could probably have used a lot less gas to achieve effective concentrations (and thus he can gas a whole lot more area) had Scarlietti chosen a lethal chemical agent rather than sleeping gas. Ms. Lightsaber Wielder neutralized her target Zafira and Shamal, but did not seriously finish them off or the like

The one time I could see killing intent was when 10 set her Heavy Barrel to Physical Destruction mode and targetted the helicopter. But considering Vivio's supposed value, well, I'd forgive him.

Further, I don't understand your obsession with deaths. If we assume (as we have to to have this discussion) that Scarlietti is really an idealist with his own sense of objectives, and we assume that those objectives (to match Scarlietti's viewpoint) will bring immense good to society, then the lives of a few individuals is honestly not a killer objection.

Besides, TSAB is the enemy army as far as he's concerned. If you compute the mathematics that way, Scarlietti was REALLY NICE.

Quote:

1) You are only guessing it is stable from TSAB propaganda.
2) Stable is not the same as a good government. Monarchies have been pretty "stable" for centuries as a system. Doesn't mean we aren't happy when they change to Democracy, even if a few heads are lost.

Well, let's look at a different point of view. The viewpoint of his research products towards him instead. Doesn't look all that bad, unless he's programmed them that way or brainwashed them. Lutecia doesn't mind him (( even though he most likely sold her away to buyers )) and the Numbers...well... Uno seems to like him at least.

Further destruction afte mission objectives? His objective is to layeth the smackdown on GC/RF6 with as little casualty as humanly possible, and clearly, during the speech, all Drones were already non-aggressive, since they were just flying around doing nothing while TSAB evacuates.

Because if he was really serious, Sein + Otto + Quattro + AMF should've been more than enough to kill Hayate, Carim, Regius and everyone in that room.

There was absolutely no indication that he wants to destroy TSAB. If he wanted to, he wouldn't had offered his namecard and business propositions to TSAB/anyone watching, and Regius/Hayate/Shamal/Zafira/etc would be dead about now. He destroyed the symbol, but he purposely left the people behind that symbol alive, and that shows genocide and bloody revolution isn't his main desire.

Who decides what's unnecessary?

Does every scientist who can't pass his ethics board get to launch an armed rebellion?

His readiness to use that potential for death and destruction doesn't exactly suggest that he's a responsible caretaker of power. If you're going to start with an introduction like that, I think it'll take more than a one-minute speech to turn things around after that.

Let's say everyone can do research without being hold back. What would stop people from getting the wrong kind of research? Neural gasses, nuklear weapons, that sort of stuff. It's illegal by law, it's used to kill people, but hey, everyone could research what they wanted, right?

Ad that's just the point, he's only build weapons! Fate's speech in the heli shows why the mass building of weapons was outlawed. What's to stop someone with not so good intentions from building his own army of over-A-ranked mages?

I don't think anything I've seen so far suggests that he should be allowed the freedom of action to demonstrate what he has in mind.

Bottom line: if you're going to violently overturn the status quo, you'd better have a damned good reason. If Scaglietti has one, he's done a terrible job of communicating it. Under those circumstances, I can't see how that adds up to a reason for supporting him.
I wasn't the one writing his speech. My point is that his words MAY be true. There's no way to say for sure until we see the series' finale.

I was just stating a scenario.

But in that case are you going to wait till someone dies then? SO are you the type that has to have reality smack you in the face before you wake up? DO you really need people to start dying before you wonder that maybe this isn't the right thing to do?
Here? Simply because nobody else does

Even when people start dying that may be not enough to convince me this isn't the right thing to do.

Said destruction was one of those objectives. He's nice enough to provide the possibility to evacuate personnel.

Science is a VERY BIG field, what could he be doing for the good of the people, that he CAN'T TELL them?

WHY can you trust such a man?!

A one minute speech, to explain how many minutes of violence and destruction?

Do you think the men and women under siege would just shrug it off?

"Our lives were in danger because you want to prove a point?!"

I was referring to Fate and Elio. The others - it's possible that he's a nice guy in private, but it's also possible that he created them that way.

He'd already rendered RF6's base thoroughly inoperative. If he wanted to level it just to make sure, with everyone incapacitated inside, then that's fine... but bragging about how humanitarian he was being at the same time was rather rich.

True. But in the meantime, it's hardly a reason to reserve judgement. We all call it as we see it. If they give us more information later, then fine, re-assess things then.

Hardly "nice," in the case of RF6's base - all that amounted to was phoning in a 10-second bomb warning.

Mind you, if he's serious about this campaign of his, then he probably should wipe out as much opposition as possible - but preferably leaving out the self-congratulation about what a peace-loving guy he really is.

Well, Project F isn't exactly a weapon project...

But, he is offering his illegal technological expertise to the highest bidder. Unless he has hidden evil plans with Relic/Material which we still know jack about, he seems to be pretty business-like in how he deals with his technological variety.

Basically, if TSAB stops their crock-minds, and made a deal with him, things may you know...turn for the better, considering how understaffed things are.

Kinda like Rurouni Kenshin's post-Kyoto arc aftermath for the Jyuuken.

I don't believe this, "Weren't careful enough" ? Why not just DON'T do it in the first place, that's the most safest by far.

Why not just build a station? Because it ain't free. And the lives of the researchers there can't be bought.

Here's an idea, DON'T attack them. For what reason does he need RF6 out of the way other than to further his own greed?

of course, if Ginga turns evil, then its Subaru vs. Ginga...I wouldn't be surprise if they both destroy each other and Ginga gaining her memory back again after all of that...that would be an epic ending to that fight, but we would lose two great characters in the process.
Well I will waiting when in ep 18-19 we see Ginga naked in a glass jar. Who can forget about that?

Maybe they should have bought him off... but the question is, how long would he stay bought? I doubt the TSAB would give him unlimited rein to perform his experiments, so sooner or later things would probably still come to a head...

No way, not after what he pulled.

Maybe before the attack, but after? No government body would work with the very man that had attacked them without warning or reasons.

It's like paying terrorist to share their toys and secrets after bombing a military base.

EDIT:

Somebody take over for me...I got school tomorrow....

He successfully avoided any deaths during all the known events his weapons were involved in.

Also there was a statement here that Doc didn't control the Drones and let them go on rampage: first - it still never caused any casualties among innocents; second - in Ep.17 it seemed like he had control over the Drones whennecessary after all.

Quote:

Why do you think he wants to destroy it completely? Seemed to me he was more eager to turn the authorities to his side.

How did you come up with this? I didn't mean anything like that, but rather the circumstances that could turn him into criminal.

It's an imaginary scenario to show that there will be no necessity for someone to forgive his crimes in case he emerges victorious.

OMG, yes, of course, yes. Nothing should hold the progress back. Who do you think is going to judge what kind of research is allowed or not? Nuclear weapons is only one side of a medal called nuclear power for example. And so on.

You sound like it's as easy as making a wooden pole to go and hit peoples' heads with it. If somebody with not so good intentions has enough resources to create a nuclear bomb for example it's not the bomb's inventor's fault, OMG.
