This week's show is dedicated to Tyrannicide. As discussed at the end of last week's show, the ides of march approacheth. this date is celebrated as the date of the assasination of the tyrant, Julius Caesar. It also approximates the date of the assasination by the Nihilist group Narodnaya Volya, or people's will of Czar Alexander the second of Russia, albeit after 7 attempts. We celebrate today
the equalling of the playing field, those who strove to be actors on the stage of history, lone wolfs if you will. I will say of the theme of today's show that whether or not the Attentat, or propaganda of the deed, actually creates the change that people expect or desire is debateable. Maybe not. Maybe it just doesn't. But, then, let's celebrate those brave and/or crazy individuals who took it upon themselves to roll the dice in the face of authoritarianism and make at least one foul tyrant suffer.
