Yes. but he didn't know how dangerous it really was till it was too late.

Not exactly. The geass power is created to fit the users desire or wish, and unlike Lelouch's wish for revenge, C.C. wanted to be loved. Her Geass was one with pure intentions that became evil in the end.

Uhhh.... Her wish didn't become evil. She wanted to be loved, and she gained "love", but couldn't differentiate between true and false love.
She probably wished to die only after 100-150 years of living, when she became tired of living. But it's not like it's evil to want to die.

I am not saying it isn't, what I am saying is that the intentions of C.C. having a Geass was very different from Lelouch's, who controled people for his sake.

She controlled people for her own sake as well. Forcing people to love you is controlling them.

Except when C.C. had Geass, she did the same damn thing Lelouch did. Manipulated people against their wills for her sake. Just on different terms.

It is an example of selfishness becoming evil. Which is the point Var is trying to make.

Indeed. But geassed people didn't have problem with it. Actually, I think they where happy. Geass made them fall in love. Doesn't love makes you happy? It's for you she was controlling them. They didn't feel anything wrong with it.
But when her geass became more powerful... and they became obsessed... i think there where some problems wwith them:heh:.
Maybe we also are being controlled. By Geass. Or by some other superpower...
Ahhh. Paranoia is starting again!!!

Arabesque 2008-08-28 11:20

I am not trying to say that what C.C. had done was right. What I am saying is when she first had the Geass, she used it to be loved. Does that make her a bad person?

Is the geass an evil power? yes

Is forcing people to love you right? no

Was C.C. wrong in wanting to be loved? no

Yes ofc, Lelouch took a stroll down the path of evil knowingly and willingly in order to achieve his goals. That's one thing I like about him as a protagonist. I really enjoyed his line in Turn 4 where he gave us his view on the matter.

The power of Geass is an absolute power though. Looking at all the different manifestations of the power we know for a fact that it is used for controlling the minds of those around you, hence "the Power of the King". Start tossing something like that around and the world WILL erupt in global chaos. We are talking about human beings. For the world to be safe from the power it has to be ridden from it. That the protagonist accepted the power even though knowing about the danger doesn't change the fact that it's a power that the world is better off without.

Yeah. When the Geass wore off they didn't try and kill her or anything.:rolleyes:
That is like saying "Euphie didn't care she was killing a bunch of Japanese."

Manipulating people's free will is just that.

No. Geass MADE them fall in love with someone they really didn't love.

.... Are you sure you know how Geass really works? Your post here seems to say you haven't been paying good attention... like... at all...

It won't change the fact that selfishness itself is not an evil deed. Selfishness with intention to kill would be othercase, but C.C never intented to kill people from the beginning, that's what I believe. Then again, she didn't know what her actions, made by the selfishness would cause. See previous post for explanations:http://forums.animesuki.com/showpost...ostcount=19987

It's the same for each entity of selfishness, unless it's was purely to kill. As I've told she can't forecast future...
It(selfishness) doesn't become evil just by mere random events.

Yes, but wanting to be loved through forcing people to love her, Arabesque, is wrong.
