The Knights Templar were bad
Assassins vs. Templars = Good vs. Evil?
But there is one point, one difference, that actually favors the Templars. HYPOCRISY. The Assassins are self-unfaithful hypocrites, whereas the Templars honestly follow their path. Why can you say the word? The problem arises from the assassin's creed. The assassins say "Anything goes."
If everything is allowed, then the Templars must be allowed to follow their vision of a perfect world. That too is part of freedom. Freedom includes that those who think differently may act differently than you yourself!
No, that's not possible!
Because the Templars don't believe that “everything should be allowed”. And here we come to the crux of the matter. The assassins see freedom not as an ideological choice, but as DIRECTIVE or DICTATION. The assassin's creed is actually not: “Everything is allowed”, but “Everything MUST be allowed.” And that is a big difference, which, by the way, also starts the hypocrisy. Others have to believe that everything is allowed. If they don't, they can be murdered.
The assassins do not seem to understand that when I dictate freedom it is no longer a choice but becomes a kind of imperative. And in that moment freedom ceases to exist. Freedom as an imperative leads itself to absurdity. If the assassins were really true to their credo and if they really respect the freedom of others (including the Templars !!!), there would be no secret war. The assassins in this sense fall short of their own ideology and only pretend to fight for freedom, but in reality they fight for the dictates of freedom and dictated freedom is a paradox. And that makes the assassins hypocrites, or at least people who haven't thought through their own ideology well enough ... with deadly consequence.
The Templars, on the other hand, have a goal and follow this goal with all methods that seem right to them. Whether the Templars are hypocrites is determined by how the Templars define the perfect world and whether their methods correspond to this picture of the perfect world or not. So far I haven't seen any lack of congruence. The Templars are morally ambivalent, but ultimately truly devoted to their goal. And by the way, the Templars never said that they wanted to completely destroy all freedom. Shay Patrick Cormack, the hero of Assassin's Creed Rogue, obviously understood this matter, which is why he defected to the Templars.
Just like Shay Patrick Cormack, I prefer to fight for order and relative freedom than for (unrealizable) total freedom. That's why I'm excited about Assassin's Creed Rogue.
