rorschach never compromise

Rorschach lives in a black and white world, and he cannot be part of Veidt’s plot, no matter what the consequences. Moore hints that that is what happens throughout the piece.

However, his journal alone, might reveal the whole conspiracy, and set the nations of the world at odds again, along with the social and economic instability that perpetual “readiness” breeds, and that Rorschach ultimately needs to justify himself. The choice for Rorschach was between death or justice, for him it wasn’t a hard choice and it had to be death.

“Not even in the face of Armageddon. Never compromise.” – My Geek Wisdom

I suspect he’s crying because he’s realizing he’s dying alone, and that his friends, who even though they were awkward misfits were at least people who compromiae with him, are now united against him. Dec comproomise, Manhattan to kill him, Ozymandias’ plan has already succeeded.

Nov 04, Manhattan was about to kill him?. Since the Journal is his last chance at ‘justice’ Rorschach forces himself to be destroyed before anyone can learn enough to uncover his original plan. Most of the heroes decide to keep quiet to ensure the peace would last.


“Not even in the face of Armageddon. Never compromise.”

What did this line mean? Guess I’ll have to go back to the source before answering. Rorschach is the hero, and he’d rather die with the millions than be complicit in the murder.

Veidt is equally, in his own way, mentally unbalanced, as his power and self-perceived superiority have led to his “for many to survive, some must be sacrificed” plan. I’m not nevdr he’s without emotion and that he doesn’t care about Rorschach, so I don’t disagree with the answer you linked, but compromuse doesn’t understand human emotion at least by the end of the story.
