Since dying and being resurrected, I've often pondered: "Who decides the rules of right conduct for vampires?" I never had to consider the rules of morality, at least not very deeply, not while I lived as a law abiding human citizen. I actually felt rather pompous about such man-made rules for proper behavior back then and I looked down upon anyone who violated such by committing murder, thievery or assault.
Then I joined this different world where no police are available to arrest anyone who rips out another's throat. Vampires are expected to kill. After all, it's our nature. Yet each time I have watched one of my associates commit what humans would consider a horrific and heinous crime, I ask myself such questions on ethics.
Perhaps Henry David Thoreau was a vampire ... he wrote such ponderable things as: "Do not be too moral. You may cheat yourself out of much life. Aim above morality. Be not simply good; be good for something."
That causes me to wonder if he wasn't watching two cultures on complete opposite sides of the idea regarding "what is ethical or just" as I am now having to do.
Thanks to Thoreau, this is my new motto: "If you cannot always be good, or be good for something, then at least read my very good book: Ravena & The Resurrected." (It made the Premium Catalog on Smashwords yesterday.)
