How many times have you seen a depiction, fictional or historical, of a mob boss, tyrant, noble (baron, king, emperor), or other nasty with power who treats his people horribly without consequence?
Often the “little guy” will have lost everything and still comes back for more abuse. Not always. Sometimes there are attempts to “forcibly retire” the menace at the top, say Hitler. They are not often successful, also Hitler. Far more often, Stalin or Mao, the tyrant dies in bed.
