Not So Friendly Les Mis Reminder:
Is not the villian of Les Mis.
Not the villian.
This is a man who has lived by a strong moral code his whole life, and who for the first time realizes that the world he sees as black and white, is in fact a million different shades of grey.
This is a man who had nothing and nobody his whole life EXCEPT that code, and when it is stripped away, is left with nothing.
And when he dies, he STILL has nothing because essentially, nothing changes. Nobody grieves, nobody cares.
Should you be interested in a villian:
THESE are two people who happily scam people out of money, rob off the dead and are just generally horrible people.
They were also the two who had five children, sold two of them, and couldn’t give a toss that two of them are dead.
