Could it be…?Could it be that Albion West went through an internal political crisis, where infighting for the top job went unchecked due to disinterest and complacency in the common inhabitants? And did it lead to factionalism, partisan warfare and complete obliteration?I believe this is what Aaron Marx saw in Albion West, and what he and the Oracle foresaw would happen to Endtown too. Marx came to the pained conclusion that the only way to save Endtown from destroying itself was to slap the people into a state of political interest, however painful and inefficient that may be. It was unjust, many people paid the price, much sadness resulted, and it would seem strange to foster political polarisation as a way of creating stability. But surely Jacob Jackrabbit, as the elected leader, will show his true colours: he may gradually mould himself into a strong and resolute chief, or he may be revealed to be a lying, cheating despot and onverthrown. Either way, after a bumpy start, Endtown will have a more participatory governance. Thereafter, people will be more attuned to throwing out a government if it starts to stink. I think that’s what Marx had in mind when he engineered the coup d’etat. I think the fate of Albion West is exactly the thing that made him choose to do what he did. He foresaw Endtown’s end.
