The Spectacle

"Sic Semper Tyrannis"

At some point in popular revolutions, slaughter turns ritualistic, as revolutionary forces seek to impose a sense of order on the areas that came under their control. Indeed, all popular revolutions end up consuming their children. Revolutionaries are cannibalistic par excellence, if not even autophagic. This is why revolutionary leadership devolves into criminality, as leaders become warlords responsible for feeding and satisfying the basic appetites of their “followers.”
