Yes, it is a good idea to burn down people's homes and have them get killed, and leave the town no longer standing in the name of freedom! Hoozah, and let us all follow a rebellion that wants to destroy the town in order to free it! Up with the new order, and down with the city!
Your goals are nice, and idealistic. These changes you want are actually in the works as you wrote. Unfortunately, you are a fanatic and threw flames all over the place and it ended in desperation. I would have considered even helping you, and spoke to the nobles for you, had you not lit fires in my house while I and my wife were asleep and I awake to my bed being on fire. For that, sir, I will never assist you.
