Throughout history we have seen many tyrants create and even maintain conflict just to further their own ends, resulting in the loss of many innocent lives.

This comparison between religion and the massacre introduces the ritualistic nature of brutality, in that the massacre was a necessity performed for the advancement of a cause. The perversion of religion later foreshadows how brutality has a propensity to descend from ritualistic brutality to uncontrollable brutality, when Don Guillermo enters the lines. This is represented by the “drunkenness” entering the lines as Guillermo is readied for his execution. These “drunkards” are not just drunk from alcohol as it is also “other elements than wine”3; they are drunk with their vengeance and power held over the Fascists. The distinction between alcohol-induced drunkenness and revenge-induced drunkenness is made very clear.
