The act of revoking the rule change has to be the dumbest of many dumb things the Capitol did. They could have completely skated, or even come out of it stronger. If it created an uproar about the Games, they could have made themselves look wise and forward-thinking by starting to rethink that on their own... and hold onto power much longer.

But like tyrants everywhere, they didn't use petty cruelties to get power. They got power in order to impose petty cruelties. Stopping the petty cruelties would miss the point for these idiots.
