Short Link to this Quote:



George Bernard Shaw criticizes the wealthy classes in his time. He seems to be saying that observing the wealthy more has given him greater understanding and sympathy for why the guillotine (used in the French Revolution to execute aristocrats) was used against the rich.

Shaw appears to believe the wealthy classes of his era were corrupt or out of touch, and that this justified the violent class warfare of the revolution. Overall, he seems to be expressing disdain for how the wealthy classes behaved and a belief that their actions could provoke a similar uprising against them.
