Subject: I know - the LFN world is compellingly gray. (r)

and I'm sure that largely part of why I write fanfction here, and not for HP or SW! *g*

But - still - especially in lots of Michael-centric fic, but also in some Niktia centric-fic - the question of personal redemption does come up; in particular they wrestle with the ethicial conundrum posed at the very beginning of each episode:

The end is just, the means are not.

So - where does that leave the individual? It seems pretty clear to me that one of Section's problems was that on an offical level they denied the validity of the issue of redemption - and yet, on a personal level - every single operative we got to know at all well wrestled with their own desire for it. Even Operations - I think much of his desire to stabilize the world through Saddam Hussain, or to save Stephen, came from his sense that he needed, in some way, to balance out the evil that he had done in the name of the world.

Redemption, even if hard to define, seems to be a pretty central theme in LFN.
