Once unleashed, revolutions proceed as dispassionately as fate itself, as life herself: they follow their own objective laws, irrespective of their impact on people’s lives and the erstwhile ideals that inspired the early revolutionaries. The beginnings become irrelevant as dark yearnings are released and different forces, motivated by anything but the erstwhile ideals, compete for control.

Note: The figure of the martyr plays a central role here, as is the case with the Noria. But the Wheel of Fate is visibly different: in the Noria, the body of the martyr received the world with an open embrace. Here, the wheel is stomping on all that lies in its path – rushing, crushing, blinding and bludgeoning.
