I voted undecided because I like different parts of some societies philosophies.

 

I like the Aiel philosophy; death is nothing to fear, because life is a dream from which we all must wake.

 

I also like Ishamaels philosophy that the war can never end permanently unless the Dark One breaks the Wheel of Time.

I am quite fond of the Aiel and Borderlander philosophies on life.  In the Borderlander's belief that it is their duty and their calling to protect the world from the Shadow, which is why I am so angry with the Borderlanders who abandoned their post.  And the Aiel belief that one should not fear death as it comes for us all and it should be accepted, but also not to fear life.

 

Though all-in-all, Ishamael's philosophy makes it with me.  Which is quite strange, seeing as I am a God-fearing, rosary praying, Roman Catholic in reality ;).  But Ishamael's philosophy is completely sound as far as I am concerned regarding the Wheel of Time.  There is no true peace of the body or of the soul.  It's always constant warefare and strife.  I see the Dark One as simply a being of pure chaos.  If he breaks the Wheel, I don't imagine him exactly sitting around playing with the souls of the dead.  It will be the end of Creation.  It will be chaos were the very fabric of our selves will come apart.

 

And then peace.  Peace in non-existance.  No more war, no more anything.  Ishamael is simply trying to liberate the people from the shackles of the Wheel.
