Salazar Slytherin left a Basilisk and only parseltongues could find the chamber... Do you think he did this because he wanted the muggle borns to be killed due to easy entry into the school instead of the elite purebloods he was urging for... or do you feel he created this to spite Gryffindor Hufflepuff and Ravenclaw in hope they would pay for not agreeing with him... or please by all means what do you think Salazars reasning and true feelings were towards the other creators and muggle born wizardry

Mudblood is sucha dirtty word.

Frankly, I think (and could be completely wrong here, but nevermind that for the moment) that the REAL reason that Salazar was against the admission of Muggleborns for magical training was simply for reasons of security.

When he was alive, the Statute of Secrecy had, I believe, not yet been initiated. Some Muggles knew about witches and wizards. Some Muggles were trying to persecute said witches and wizards. Some were jealous, and would have wanted to use the abilities of magical people to make their own lives easier. Where is this threat coming from? Jealous Muggles. Muggles who could well be HAPPY to abuse the abilities of Muggle-born children.

It would be best for the safety of everyone concerned, if the Muggles just forgot about the whole thing and their magical children didn't receive the training they'd have needed to become fully fledged wizards and witches. They'd be oddities and curiosities, certainly... healers, and "witch-doctors", and probably amazingly "lucky" people on the whole, but with undeveloped talent they'd probably be more likely to repress their abilities as time went on.

I had an idea for a fan-fic set in the future that basically played on this whole premise... one Muggleborn wizard had a jealous brother, who later grew up to run an experimental medical technology centre that was working with nanotechnology as a treatment for genetically-based diseases... and this brother used his wizard sibling's, wife's and childrens' DNA as a blueprint for the nanites to rewrite a person's whole genetic code, basically with the potential to make EVERYONE magical. Political chaos ensues in both worlds as some folks think it's a fabulous idea, and other people fear for their lives and "the way things should be".

what of all the havoc on e of the muggle born children could have released into the world, not knowing what they were doing? a tantrem, a fight, a mear whim, oculd turn into a deadly situation. and isnt there a whole department in the ministry to keep things like that from happening? i think salazar was just a jerk with, as i beleive someone put rather nicely here, a hitler complex.

I agree with sungmanitu's philosophy. I think there was no code that witches and wizards lived by in the beginning. Perhaps he wanted to kill muggles to scare them out of wanting to be witches and wizards for personal gain? a sacrifice if you will.

There are absolutely tons of possibilities on why he did what he did. I think Slytherin left the basilisk behind to for both protection and revenge. Sungmanitu pretty much explained the security thing and I agree with that philosophy. I also think he most likely enjoyed having one up on the rest of the founders when he left it. But, I think that was most likely a small bit of it and it was more about security. He put a lot of himself into the castle, so of course he'd like to protect it.

i'm sure that ancient wizards have had a very different thoughts about human (especially muggle) life cost than we do now.
and salazar slytherin was undoubtedly a very peculiar person even amongst them. i think he must have had a very special sense of humour.

Mudblood is an awesome word! x

Prahaps he was slightly mad and was suffering from hitler syndrome!
1st-Jul-2006 12:03 am (UTC) - hitler syndrome
you might be on to somthing with the hitler thing. wasnt it the same idea? clensing of the bloodlines, getting rid of mudbloods like getting rid of the cripples or the gypsies, or anything else? it just seems like crazy sybolism gone wrong to me. oh well.

the parsletoung thing isnt even a factor in here, cuz not only pure bloods or decendants can speek it. at least they never say that that is the case. yes, salizar could, and so could voldemort. big deal. i think it was revenge and the thought that he knew something they didnt and that they couldnt do a thing about it that caused him to loose the thing into the schools plumbing system

I agree with angelfish09. I always thought that he wanted to take a revenge. It was a kind of play. He was crossed and enjoyed to get the upper hand on the others founders by letting a terrible secret under the castle.
Did he really intend to harm muggle-borns? Yes I think so. But he knew the basilic could kill pureblooded wizards too. I'm sure he had this Hitler complex. He just wished one of his descendants would achieve his aim: prevent muggle-borns to study into Hogwarts.

(please correct me if I wrote like a 5years old girl, I need to improve my english, thanks ^_^)
