Epilogue

If one could relate that particular concept to modern times the present day Catholic Church leaps to mind. Galileo was their waterloo.

They’ve been on defense with science ever since. Ironically, what brought them to their knees was pedophilia in the ranks. The infliction of torture upon the most defenseless of society brought down their reign. It makes the Pope just a guy with a funny hat.

It leads one to wonder. It was a force that even was beyond Napoleon’s power. It was a force of nature.

"It was a wicked and wild wind that blew down the doors which let him in". It was the Aristocrats insensitivity to the peasants, telling the hungry, it was best to eat the grass. This while the elite bathe in every comfort of luxury, especially tall hats.

It was the monster created by the Aristocrats and nobleman and kings of wealth.

More interestingly it leads me to the Shelly novel “Frankenstein.” A manmade monster that got a little out of control.

Nothing compared to that of the likes of the French Revolution, but interesting none the less. Fore Napoleon knew quite well, he could not raise the tides any more than he could control the winds of change.

The power of the monster was prefaced by the 'shattering of glass and pounding of drums'. The standard of the enemy defined, eaten food lately or not; expectations of his blood to be spilled by the Revolutionaries were real.

Fore they wait for "his head to be served upon a platter of Silver."

"Alone like a puppet on a string really. Every lie led his nose growing a little longer; eventually leading to the inevitable. Who would ever want to be King, they behead Kings."

St. Peter will not be calling the name Napoleon to enter the Kingdom; the downside of playing God.

 

A Tale of Two Cities

"It was the best of times, it was the worst of times; it was the age of wisdom, it was the age of foolishness; it was the epoch of belief, it was the epoch of incredulity;

it was the season of Light, it was the season of Darkness; it was the spring of hope, it was the winter of despair;

we had everything before us, we had nothing before us; we were all going directly to Heaven, we were all going the other way."
