The Serial Killer's Creed

Peace is an illusion. There are those who would have you believe that peace is mankind’s ultimate panacea. They are either ignorant or outright lying to you.

There is no such thing as peace, only the potential for violence.

Think about it. Everything you care about was born out of the most violent act in the history of time. The universe ripped itself into being in the most savage birth you can imagine. So, you see, the very foundation of life is violence. There’s nothing fundamentally wrong with it; it’s creating, sustaining, destroying: the natural cycle of things.

Once you realize this, you see that those who proclaim peace are actively striving against the very fabric of the universe. It’s pure hubris. If there were nothing but creation and preservation…

Well, that’s where I come in. I am the universe’s way of providing balance. Controlled destruction is necessary in order to prevent unrestrained growth. I exist to complete the cycle.

So what if I happen to enjoy it?
