In recent thread about Seshnela and Monotheism, Greg put some about the term "demonization" with special meaning.
Of course, Spolites were hated and treated as evil from neighborhoods.

But in other words, I am not sure such total condemnation to enemy is required / used by polytheists of Glorantha like Orlanthi, such absolute concept of Good/Evil is something closer to monotheistic idea, in my personal view.

I assume this is Lunar Way, inclusive to contradictions. I am not sure such inclusiveness to inconsistency (and illumination) is derived from Pelandan Culture.
