Fridge Logic: Most of Lysaer's propaganda against Arithon depends on this. The first battle in the war started because Arithon was a sorcerer. This was revealed to the public by Arithon using sorcery to defend himself when Lysaer used sorcery to attack him for no apparent reason. Since that battle, people line up to serve in armies against the Master of Shadow due to the horrific number of people he's killed. These volunteers consistently fail to grasp that 90% of those casualties were inflicted on armies that were trying to kill him at the time, and the rest mainly stem from incidents where he was sorely provoked.
