1/ It's an administration full of self-described unsung heroes, always with their own heroic narrative of how they're doing the right, smart thing, then cowering in anonymity, and oh, never resigning in protest and telling the truth.
2/ After the fall, you'll see a wave of articles and books about how hard they fought against the madness. Many of them play this game with reporters every day. "I hate him, he's crazy, but *I'm* trying to save the world."

They scream revenge is only fair

They hope to see royal heads depart
For revolution's in the air

Worked just as well on Robespierre
