- 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 You Have Failed Me 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 Father/Mother/Parent of all things, including basic logic. So of course they'd use such dumb and counterproductive tactics as this trope!
