Game of Thrones ' High Sparrow Wants a Political Revolution

(Excerpts of a leaked High Sparrow speech in King's Landing in upcoming season 6 of Game of Thrones)

"Some months ago, as you know, when we were out on the steps of the Great Sept of Baelor, everybody counted us out. We have come a very long way in that time.
(APPLAUSE)
Today we have weapons that empower our religious rights and godly way of life. And let me assure you that we are going to take our fight for justice - economic justice and social justice - and create a just world for everyone in the Seven Kingdoms.
Now, the Lannisters and the Tyrells may be against us, but you know why we're going to win? Because our message is resonating and the people - when we stand together - will be victorious.
(APPLAUSE)
Our campaign was and is about transforming Westeros. It is about making our great country a nation that we know it has the potential to be.
It is about dealing with some unpleasant truths that exist in Westeros today and having the guts to confront those truths.
And I know all of us agree that we're going to not allow the noble class and their knights to destroy Westeros.
(APPLAUSE)

Let's understand something here. This is the wealthiest country since the doom of Valyria. But, in our city many thousands of King's Landingers are working longer hours for lower wages. Or even no wages.
And you all know that while our people are working so hard, almost all of the new wealth and income generated in Westeros is going to the top 1 percent. And at the same time, 100% of the lands are owned by the top 0.01%.
(BOOING)
Well, together, what we are going to do is create an economy that works for all of us, not just for the people on top.
(APPLAUSE)
Now, I know many of the members of the noble class think that the Seven Pointed Star is a hoax.
(BOOING)
Well, you don't develop real public policy unless you listen to the septons, and the Seven Pointed Star is clear.
Now, I know that Cersei Lannister and many of the people in the establishment think that I am looking and thinking too big. I don't think so.
(BOOING)
But you have to know that no one man can remake the Seven Kingdoms. Not the High Septon or anybody else. What we need is to create a political revolution. Only when The Queen of Thorns sees millions of people out of her window in the Red Keep with a clear message that if you don't give us what we want she will have to look for a different job. Or a different head.
(APPLAUSE)
What this political revolution is about is bringing millions of people into the political process. Low born people who have become disillusioned under a feudal system whose greed and recklessness have destroyed our economy. A feudal system that has fraud as a business model.
(BOOING)
What the political revolution is about is bringing our people together. From The Reach or The Rock, from The Stormlands or the Riverlands.
People born in King's Landing, people who have immigrated to King's Landing. When we bring our people together, when we do not allow the King Joffreys of the world to divide us up.
(APPLAUSE)
When we bring our people together and when we have the courage to stand up to the high born and tell them they can't have it all.
(APPLAUSE)
Tell them that our government belongs to all of us, not just kings and queens and wealthy lords. Then we will win. Thank you and see you in New Hampshire"!
