This is all amusing, since everyone here seems to assume an
anthropomorphic ethic would be held by some advanced race or entity. It
also assumes that if this were a sim that it isn't a 'game' we entered
into voluntarily and that other actors we see in the system are sentient
agents. I can think of a lot of reasons to have an 'evil' sim; must be
because I'm evil.


Enjoy the ride,
