they hated him because he told the truth
>He did the smartest thing. Took the blame and installed a puppet.
the thing of zero being an idea and so transcends politics or whatever falls apart when people start realising that this guy in this costume is as dumb as everyone else and they start wanting to get rid of him. it's a shitty resolution to dictatorship, to sort of have this wishy-washy "justice will prevail" liberalism, lelouch should have just been a good leader to a third of the world instead since the show makes the point of having him be right about everything he talks about, so there's literally no one else more qualified. the show tries to have it's cake and eat it too, as though any guy could resist that amount of power, and all the while he is literally a teenager. just dumb anime shit. also, R1 is better than R2.
