1. Can you please try and explain, succinctly, each time you use some accounting principle for something? I don't think most of us work in the field.
I'm not using it in quite the same fashion as I would over a question of accounting. The entity principle in accounting is in regards to the business as an entity separate from its owners, notably corporations. It is a similar concept to the way I am using it as it relates to the story, but it is not precisely the same.
The entity principle as I am using it here is that we must evaluate the actions of the governing entity, instead of attributing them to the race. In the case of the Horde, the principle demands that we cannot blame the current Horde for the actions of the past Horde, because they are different governing entities. In this case, instead of differentiating the owners from the entity, we are differentiating one entity from another.
In the case of the Night Elves and the Trolls then, applying the entity principle, you must recognize that claiming invasion as comeuppance for kicking the trolls out (if that indeed happened in Northern Kalimdor, we have no evidence) is flawed because that happened under a different governing entity. So, I do not agree that a race is evil because of the actions of a prior entity, which is what I am trying to demonstrate here.
