The Fable of the Dragon Tyrant

Post by FaxModem1 » 2018-04-24 05:05pm

CCP Grey uploaded a new video, a telling of The Fable of the Dragon Tyrant. The text of which can also be found here.

Moral of the story: Research into stopping aging and death need to be given serious consideration.

What do you think of this fable? A few commentators noted the story is not told right, and that the dragon wouldn't be killed, only chained, and only the poor or non-powerful would be fed while the rich enjoy a dragon-free life.

What are your thoughts on both the little morality tale, and the implications of the story?

Strangely enough I got the dragon as an analogy for either a force of nature or divinity, and the message I got is science fuck yeah, or more specifically science can overcome these things.
