                                      “It seemed, the king was done negotiating.”

                                      Fear, left unchecked, often boils over into anger. Anger leads to hate. Hate leads to suffering. Suffering leads to the dark side.

                                                        I was learning about this recently, and I found the revolutionary radicals kinda crazy... Their ideas and stuff were good, but they went crazy with the beheadings... Lol they also contradicted everything they were trying to do, they made a constitution and wrote all the stuff and all was well and good then they went crazy going around and marching around with people's heads on pikes. And then they wanted more blood, and eventually they got so obsessed with blood they even supported censorship (even though the constitution they made said no censorship). They also said they hated christians and stuff and then literally just replaced him with another god lol
