"Sure, you can argue that the orcs are evil -- and they absolutely were, back in the day. But when you start looking at the justifications for the orcs' actions, that label of pure evil comes into question."I think there's a difference between "justification" and "excuse" and I think you used the wrong one.

Using the word 'Justification' is being politically correct in Azeroth :)Similarly, one group of Humans (Defias) has legitimate gripes with the establishment, and all of a sudden all of Humanity is called into question.The Horde, after years of conquest and murder, have one of their own (raised by Humans, no less) ascend past all that, and now the Horde may have 'justifications' instead of excuses. Brilliant.

You're kind of discounting the Scarlet Crusade.

@ KillikThe SC has the same "duped by demons" excuse that the orcs have.

Except the Scarlets are a different situation. Scolding humans for their madness is like saying it's humanity's fault for the rise of Arthas. It's just wrong. After all, the Scarlet Crusade was a fully independent order, while they had ties with Lordaeron, one cannot argue the establishment directed their actions. Lordaeron had long fallen by the time the Scarlets did what they did.
