to the barricades

Let's play a game called

“Do I Love The Character Because Of The Actor Who Played It or Do I Love The Actor Because Of The Character He Played”

We all know that Enjolras was on the barricade to fight for Liberty

And we know Combeferre was on the barricade to fight for Equality

And we know Courfeyrac was on the barricade to fight for Brotherhood


But Bahorel was on the barricade to fight for the right to exist beyond ‘class’

But Feuilly was on the barricade to fight for children without anything else

But Joly was on the barricade to fight for those choosing between medicine and food

But Jehan was on the barricade to fight for the right to live fully

But Bosset was on the barricade to fight for freedom of the future

And Grantaire was on the barricade to fight for his friends, the goodness in life

The fact that French students still barricade their high schools/university buildings with furniture to protest shit is the True™ les Mis legacy
