October 4, 23 CE

On October 4, 23 CE, peasant rebels sacked the Chinese capital Chang’an during their rebellion. This was unusual because the vast, vast, VAST majority of peasant rebellions throughout history resulted in the better trained, better supplied and better paid armies of the entrenched governments routing said peasant armies. This usually happened even when said governments were horribly corrupt and inefficient. Not this time though. David actually slew Goliath.

The Twisted Historian is correct. Most peasant rebellions fail. You might want to remember this before rising up against the Benevolent Robot Overlords. Wouldn’t it be better to just Share Twisted-History and leave the rebelling to someone else?
