Another attempt by Pado to whitewash saradomin. His military was a racially segregated, and classist legion that used humans as cannon fodder to die in mass so that "more important races can get the job done". His society had strict social barriers in which each race could only do one job as he commanded it with no flexibility for the individual's talents. This has confirmed my suspicions that true Saradominist society is indeed a personality cult dictatorship.

As for your comparison of Kronos' "golden age"... you do understand that mortal races were either cheap entertainment or snacks for the titans right? An apt comparison really, in his "golden age" only Saradomin (Kronos) and his chosen people, the icyene (Titans), mattered. The other "lesser rabble" are disposable on the whims of the born elite.

I was going to say that Kronos' age was one that the earth provided everything mortals needed without work but Hguoh beat me to it.

Also, according to Interpretations of Greek Mythology (Routledge Revivals) written by By Jan N. Bremmer, Euhemerus' view (Ennius Euhemerus 9.5) states that Kronos and Rhea and other people living at the time ate the flesh of humans.

As for people who don't try to live not surviving? Yeah no shit. Mods have confirmed that Zamorak believes everyone has the inner strength to draw on in order to surpass themselves. The people who themselves have already given up are beyond help. As for slavery... many slaves throughout the ages have decided that they'd rather die fighting than suffer the indignity of being a slave. Saradomin is another slavemaster that will eventually be overthrown like the rest.

There's many sources/interpretation on that, and also you are assuming a just world fallacy here. That somebody who rises to the top won't want to eventually stop putting effort into it like everybody else.

I was making no hint of that but suggesting that slavery where you have basic needs provided despite anything is much better than death/homelessness which there is nothing worse than.

The people who have supposedly 'given up' were often put into circumstances where they started out trapped in a viscious cycle. Saradomin wants to provide all with basic needs they need to survive. Even everything in Falador appears to be run and managed by Saradomin and his followers, with nobody else owning them?

Saradomin wants to deter aggressors whom threaten his protected.

HAHAHAHAHA! Good one! Oh Zamorak... you're actually serious?!?!?

Saradominism is the posterboy for just world fallacy as you have a clear history in exploiting the lower classes. Need I remind you that Icyene comforts are prioritized over human lives and wellbeing anyday? Or how Icyene commanders routinely stripped entire human villages of all working age people during the godwars to send as cannon fodder on a front line that's moved like two inches in the last 500 years?

Vicious cycle? So a culture in which it is legal and encouraged to rise from your limitations is now somehow worse than one with
distinct social classes
,
established social immobility
, and a government that
actively enforces the systemic exploitation of the lower classes
now?

Lastly we come to slavery... you do understand that serfdom is a thing in runescape right? Since Zamorakians don't live within the system, they're not the main owners and operators of serfdoms. Systemic ownership of people is legal and practiced in saradominist society. Example: Assistant Serf

The punishment used to Garlandia had to be strictly used because it was a form of Icyenic tradition deemed appropriate for certain people inside their own culture. So that lack of appreciation for a different culture again.


In my culture we burn each other's houses down. So can Saradomin stop disrespecting Zamorakian culture and kindly screw off?

LOL! Hey Pado... you're going to need Jaina to fix that burn!
