This can be seen as history not politics, so I assume it's safe to post. Today in class, we viewed a film that depicted the social unrest and social movements that led to the French Revolution. The film depicted how the nobles and clergymen spent money, and had tons of food and yet somehow there was none for the middle class and the other lower classes. Everything that was shown in that film had "Megatron: Origins" written all over it. It makes you feel bad for the "ruthless" Decepticons, even though they seem to be trying to get at what they see as social justice through fear and terror. It is still their idea of social justice is. Maximillan Robespierre is basically Megatron, he took rebels fighting against the corrupt government. These rebels were displaced but he organized them into a group and became their leader. "On 5 February 1794 he stated, more succinctly: "La terreur n'est autre chose que la justice prompte, sévère, inflexible. ("Terror is nothing other than prompt, severe, inflexible justice." Check out his "Reign of Terror" here: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Reign_of_Terror Next was the killing of King Louis XVI, which was like Megatron killing Sentinel Prime. Robespierre was at the trial what he said can be found here : http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Maximilien_Robespierre#The_execution_of_Louis_XVI I am not going to go into every detail but there are lots of similarities.
