A dangerous mix of fear (of the Culture) and arrogance (thinking they could dismiss Gurgeh) pushed Azad's inner circle over the edge.
As dull and badly paced as Tarantino's Inglourious Basterds was (Christoph Waltz' performance as an eccentric, self-serving SS officer not withstanding) I felt that the Nazi leadership getting massacred inside a locked up cinema that was burning down and exploding was very similar to the Azadian leadership getting massacred at Castle Klaff (and it's implied the spectacular leadership decapitations spelt the end for the two evil empires, though we've been over this before).

'Poverty is not an injustice. There is no such thing as causes for poverty, only causes for wealth. Poverty is not a wrong, but taking money from those who have it to equalize incomes is basically theft, which is wrong.' - Typical Randroid
