The traditional reading on this has been that he meant "lawful good" to be "worse" than, say, neutral good but you have to remember his context as a deeply conservative right-wing christian member of the American Libertarian Party, you can't forget that context, so

I don't see that as him saying Chivington was LG, just that genocide can be LG, if the targets are inherently evil. Unlike the real world, some beings are inherently evil in D&D, and killing them all would be LG, according to Gygax.

"Alignment" has always been a shitty and unnecessary rule system and it's tiresome that D&D's magic system is basically married to it. You literally can't throw one without the other. oth, the whole Vancian magic system is trash anyway, so out both of them go.

vancian magic makes me wanna cry. it's just so tedious and bad, and the biggest reason that i never play magic classes in TTRPGs that use it.
