I have a dilemma in my story. The themes of my story is choice, unity, and control. In my post-apocalyptic world, there are many factions with their ideologies vying for control and dominance in the entire badlands. Team Good guys managed to beat a faction whose core ideology is religious fanaticism and utter devotion to God and their Pope, I was inspired by terror groups like ISIS and by the Iranian Regime, As they defeated them they offered clemency for those who will fight for team good guys, But the issue is....These guys are built up to be utterly devoted to their Pope who they view as God reincarnate. Simply killing the pope might not be enough, This can lead to instability in team good guys (I plan to make their faction a little bit unstable as these old grudges simmer beneath the surface). If you think about it, This is unsustainable this is the equivalent of the US army defeating the Taliban and offering them to fight alongside them to crush a bigger foe. What good reason can I give them not to rebel? I don't plan to make it perfect for my story as there will be some subfactions that will lead to the eventual collapse of team good guys in the end. But for now, What will buy their loyalty? Or make them outright give up their ideology?
