Why the wall
Posted 10 June 2012 - 06:58 PM
What is their motivation for wanting to take down the wall? It's got to be more than a grudge Mance has against the Nights watch.
So why do they attack the Nights watch?

I think they probably just want to defeat the Watch in battle, take over the wall and settle and ravage the North, where they will be safe from the Others, protected by the magic of the wall

2. Because they feel like they have just as much right to be on the "good" side of the wall as anyone else. They are also descended from the First Men.

Also Jon recalls a conversation between Ned and Benjen about the "Gift" (piece of land the NW owns) and says that Wildings could settle there. The potential problem is that the wildings won't kneel to any King or pay taxes but rather make up their own rules.

All the evidence is there if you look for it.

I was surprised later on, when Mance said to Jon during the march that the wildlings had been worried about the others and was glad that they had choosen to attack the black instead of the wildlings. It was the first time I realized that the wildlings and the Others didn´t cooperate.

So according to that...what is your best guess to the true purpose of the Nights Watch.
