That's straw argument. By your words, he _requested_ it.
He haven't acted on it.

Some people wondered why I haven't jumped on arms right after the
coup. They knew I don't like to keep silent when I see injustice.

It is very simple. I knew the revolution will fail. History repeats itself.

I just hoped that it would take more time, so people who were blinded
by the lies of the masters could realize it on their own.
Michael have also been fooled by Diego in the past. It took him almost
a year to realize it.

The project is now in ruins because the hostile takeover was done by force.
It was not done by approval of the community and thus it rip it apart.
Have Michael been voted down, nobody would have had any grounds to complain.

You can't fix evil by doing evil.
