Final Report presentation 3/4

Freedom? Or Power? Which is better? The Templars in the series believe that through power they can save humanity, and make the world a better place. They have corrupt and unjust ways of trying to attempt it but in the end, they wish the same stability that the Assassin's prefer. The Assassin's on the other hand prefer to safeguard the freedom of the people, and saving humanity and guiding them, killing necessary evil in the process. In obtaining freedom, the assassin's lose a lot in the process, but in the end, everything works out. 
Here is a speech by Ezio Auditore (my favouriote assassin)

Ezio: Silenzio. Silenzio. Twenty-two years ago, I stood where I stand now - and watched my loved ones die, betrayed by those I had called friends. Vengence clouded my mind. It would have consumed me, were it not for the wisdom of a few strangers, who taught me to look past my instincts. They never preached answers, but guided me to learn from myself. We don't need anyone to tell us what to do; not Savonarola, not the Medici. We are free to follow our own path. There are those who will take that freedom from us, and too many of you gladly give it. But it is our ability to choose - whatever you think is true - that makes us human... There is no book or teacher to give you the answers, to show you the way. Choose your own way! Do not follow me, or anyone else.

  1. "Choose your own way! Do not follow me, or anyone else."

    Echoes of Brian Cohen ("You don't have to follow me...you don't have to follow anybody"...

    But self-appointed vigilantes still always give me the creeps.
