YMMV: The Robbers

  • Harsher in Hindsight: "Set me at the head of an army of fellows like myself, and out of Germany shall spring a republic compared to which Rome and Sparta will be but as nunneries." Well, there was a later German republic like that.
  • Misaimed Fandom: Some people like to cite The Robbers' "Death or freedom!" They rarely think of the many unjustified crimes committed by them.
  • Moral Event Horizon: Spiegelberg crosses it during the drama.
