The people of KL have been shown lashing out against Joffrey for being a vicious, uncaring asshole - which guess what, he was
They have been shown lashing out against Cersei for being an entitled, incestous bitch - which guess what, she was
They have been shown trying to seek shelter from Daenerys and her Dothraki and Northman army - entirely justified, as it turns out
They have been shown to love Queen Margaery - which she was deserving of

The one thing you can blame them for is cheering for the death of Ned Stark - if you disregard the fact that they had absolutely no way of knowing what we, the audience, know and were deceived by the machinations of House Lannister and Littlefinger. For all they knew, they were witnessing the death of a traitor who had endangered the rightful king.

Which is to say, you can't blame them for cheering the death of Ned Stark.

if anything, they've consistently acted as ignorant angry mobs when the chips are down to bully/pick on whoever is losing the Game

KL is full of terrible people

So they all should be burnt alive, kids included, because one King Landing's cunt decided to show his wanker to the soon-to-be queen? Or ate people alive, because there is no food being imported?

If by bully you mean lash out at the nobles who through their petty petulant squabbling starts wars and leads to them starving and being massacred then sure.

I feel that you're giving them too much credit. They're lashing out at nothing because they don't seem to understand ANYTHING about ANYTHING that is going on at all. They simply have animalistic urge to act as a big simple, unthinking crowd and pick on whoever happens to be the poor Loser of the day. They aren't capable of comprehending any ethical system besides the fact that if you pick on a Winner he'll send army to crush you but if there's an opportunity to pick on a Loser of the Day (especially at a Winner's invitation)... then let's do it.

They represent humanity in its most despicable form.

That is why they lash out.

What makes you think they can obtain any such knowledge of the intricate workings of politics? These people are just living their lives, and the affairs of nobles matter not to them. Not only that, but they have no easy way of obtaining information. Back in the feudal days, priests would make public speeches and that was the "news", other then that, they only have rumours and superstition to go off of. They act 'unthinking' because they are ignorant and incapable of being informed unless nobles wish it so. Your blaming them for a crime they are not in control of.

it is a bastion of predatorialism, if someone falls, STEP ON THEM is the mentality

No it´s fucking not. The mentality is lash out against the people who make their lives shit. There is a reason they hated Cersi. It was because she did nothing to help them while they starved. They hated Joffery because he was an uncaring monster who started wars and made their lives shit.

Ah, yes a Spymaster for all they know does nothing but scheme, and a dwarf from the family who sacked Kings Landing (a sacking that included raping). Oh, how they would be forever in the gratitude in for that.

On another note: I don't believe the masses were around for Tyrions hearing, those people there were nobles and middle class individuals. So your blaming the poor for the attitude of the nobles and middle class?

KL is full of terrible people

Lord Gendry Baratheon and Ser Davos Seaworth. Terrible people.

Deplorables, you might say.

I'm not saying they should be, but if happens to them... shrugs (no tears from me)

Im not asking you to shed tears, as I did not. But to understand the gravity of Daenarys's sin, and to atleast sympathize too.

They dont care or know about the big power struggles, they know and care about the people making their lives shit, the people who are responsible for them starving, dying and being trampled underneath in wars. That is why they lash out.


the people of North Korea have more critical thinking than this bunch in King's Landing

it is a bastion of predatorialism, if someone falls, STEP ON THEM is the mentality

Tyrion and Varys are showing god like benevolence for seriously even considering their welfare at all in a medieval conquest (props to them)


The People of NK, believe their leader wrote the worlds greatest symphany at age 12, had 11 holes in 1 during his only ever played game of Golf, and at the firing range keyholed a bullzeye ten times using bullshit soviet AKs. They have no critical thinking skills what so ever. And it's not their fault, that particular skill has been systematically beaten out of them for the last 80 years.
