Of Reason and Politics
“I have found that political unrest is the base upon which all revolutions take shape.”
~Of Reason and Politics – Chapter 5 – (Author Unknown)
Of Reason and Politics was a tome that came into circulation throughout Rondo during The Burning. The title served as a collection of political advice and sayings for both the common people and lords alike. The text was divided into 15 different chapters and spoke of the importance of knowledge above all else in the quest for civil unity. The text’s author chose to remain anonymous, it is thought this was done in order to protect the author from possible political repercussions. Rondo, as a monarchy, doesn’t have much room for ideas such as revolution and thought about one’s monarchs. The book became vastly popular amongst the peasantry fast and bards often quote its scores to inspire awe or heroism in their comrades. In a stroke of irony there was at one point a mass book burning ordered by the Rondonian royalty for the purposes of keeping the book’s ideas from the common folk.
