HOTR on Moral Inversion

…You cannot imagine what it is like to live, or rather to try to exist, in a world consisting in its entirety of lies. A world of unspeakably vile sexual perversions which by law I am not even allowed to describe to you, even had I any desire to do so, which I do not. A kleptocracy, quite literally ruled by criminals, some of whom were so bad and so blatant they were even indicted under the Americans’ own laws. A world based on no foundation other than sheer greed, wallowing in the most gross and despicable material gluttony. A wasteland of spiritual emptiness, moral corruption and cultural pollution. An entire society that was based on a bizarre and grotesque moral inversion: the utterly ridiculous and thoroughly evil idea that all humanoid creatures are in some manner equal.

--“The Hill of the Ravens”, pg 190
