“Ultimately, personal grievances masquerading as a genuine social concern would rationalize brutality.”

Expanding on this point, when guilt under the law is replaced with guilt by moral condemnation of a selected elite class, the subjective nature of the moral purges, combined with natural rivalries, eventually leads the elites to turn on one another in an effort to gain power.
