It's interesting that I can imagine lecturing on evil much more easily than I can about deviousness.
Both can have layers layed upon layers to them, complications in how they might work, details that
are important to using them. And it's important to a degree with both not to let others know what's
going on. But I'm much more comfertable with talking about evil than I am with deviousness.
It's interesting having snodgers talk like this though. BUt I would imagine this would be one of the things he actually would know about.
But we have similar attitudes towards minor 'evil'. Being rude just doesn't cut it. It's a good way to increase the net evil in the world, but as far as really doing anything goes, it's a little pointless. You'll never become a real villain just by making people slightly more irritable, so why bother?
