* As anyone who's ever actually read his stuff could tell you, Pr. Lewis was not a foolish man. All the dumb issues that come with the YouHaveFailedMe trope would doubtlessly be plain as day to a man like him. But as he makes clear in other works, the demons reject God and all their works, but God is the [[OtherworldlyAndSexuallyAmbiguous Father/Mother/Parent]] of all things, including ''basic logic''. So ''of course'' they'd use such dumb and counterproductive tactics as this trope!

* In "Screwtape Proposes A Toast", Screwtape justifies seeking to damn people for minor sins on the grounds that it's BoringButPractical; the resulting souls may not be as enjoyable to eat as truly great, passionate sinners, but they are much less risky to acquire. However, there might also be another reason for using this strategy, when you consider that Lewis portrays demons as pretending to be allied while actually all seeking to ruin each other. Keeping up a steady supply of subpar souls means you get to be just helpful enough to avoid getting fired, but without doing something as un-demon-like as making another being happy.
