Whose fault is the fall of Camelot?
How long has civilized man been on earth? As long as the earth has turned. People might argue that it is Mordred’s fault for going against King Arthur. If King Arthur had not had an affair with Morgause, Mordred should not have been born and caused problems for King Arthur. He knows Lancelot and Guinevere love each other but he ignores the situation. It is when Mordred comes in and tries to go against him because he knows Lancelot and Guinevere are the people King Arthur is trying to protect and he tries to threaten him with it. The fall of Camelot is King Arthur’s fault. (Camelot, 1960).
Most of this is Arthur’s fault because for one he does not listen to Merlin. Arthur knows that Guinevere would be his downfall but still marries her (Camelot, 1960). Also, he obviously knows of the love affair that would eventually happen but still lets Lancelot join the round table (Camelot, 1960). Since he is uneasy with his crown, he always runs away from the castle when there is trouble (Camelot, 1960). When Mordred asks him to stay in the forest for the night, he should have known he is up to something (Camelot, 1960). He does not care about how his wife’s action and decide to accept what is happening. It is Arthur fault for not doing anything when he had the chance.
Another reason why it is King Arthur’s fault is that he does not take care of his own son Mordred. Since he did not take care of him since he was little, he must feel betrayed, left out, and lonely. Is must be why he want revenge and try to take over king Arthur throne. He knows Mordred was hungry for the throne and want to take over but he did not try to stop him (Camelot, 1960). King Arthur was indecisive. He is not passionate about Guinevere and seem to be afraid of Lancelot. It is King Arthur who makes many unwise decisions that lead to further destruction of his court.
In addition, it is Arthur's fault for trusting Guinevere too much. He had even told her his crown

    To Camelot or Not? I grew up watching Sci-Fi shows mostly, but I really did love the original Dark Shadows with the brooding Barnabas. After reading a lot of the posts this week in between decorating for a Veteran’s Day event at our school and mopping up the water from the broken water main in (or should I say under) the house, I came to the conclusion that Captain Kirk was a futuristic King Arthur and Mr. Spock would have been his Merlin. You had pageantry and magic along with the code of honor…

    Marilyn Manson 's article on Columbine is in defense of himself concerning the blame from the media for the shootings in Littleton, Colorado. The points he brought up in his defense impressed me. I never really expected him to have that kind of outlook on things. There were a few controversial points that I was shocked to have seen brought up, like religion. He is the self proclaimed Antichrist and bringing religion into such a heated subject to begin with was very gutsy. Overall I think that his…
