I am talking from the time before which was like 23 issues.
The parade was a dumb thing that Starscream (who was also a traitor) asked him to do but by that time all hope was long since lost because the radicals had already infiltrated the government and had armed militias being ready to blow things up when the time was right.>>122419836
You are completely right. Though this is what fucks over democracies since they started existing. A lot countres (including my own) would have never been fucked to hell and back in the past if centrists wouldn't have played by the rules while their enemies weren't.
If you limit yourself but your antagonist doesn't you have already lost. That only works for normal crimes, not when the enemy is giant extremist movement that more than 20% of the people are siding with.
