“The King must die, so the Nation can live,” argued Maximilien Robespierre during the trial of King Louis XVI. A few days later, on January 21, 1793, the King was executed. Whether Maximilien Robespierre was a British spy or not, who was acting on behalf of the British Monarchy, is not relevant in comparison to the relevance of his argument, which is a very interesting one.
When the level of corruption is unbearable and injustice has inflicted an entire nation, no small or partial reform is enough. Corruption and injustice should be unrooted from the highest levels of power. Indeed, the execution of one corrupt, rotten, bloodthirsty, and irresponsible individual, who happened to be at the top of the hierarchy of the power is more reasonable than the unjust death of millions of people.
The argument of Maximilien Robespierre about the execution of the King shows that solutions sometimes require royal punishment, especially when royal corruption and injustice have become a major obstacle to living a peaceful life.
I think we all need to read more about the execution of King Louis XVI. We should get acquainted with the political situation which caused all the turmoil and the role of the British Empire in bringing down the French Monarchy, as well as the significance of royal punishment.
Royal punishment can guarantee big changes.
