One Piece chapter 1066 finally gives some context on what caused Monkey D. Dragon to fight back against the World Government. Over the past 800 years, the oppressive regime has prohibited any research into the Void Century. They would even resort to blowing up entire islands to prevent that information from leaking. One Piece chapter 1066 reminds manga readers what happened back in Ohara 20 years ago. One Piece chapter 1066 explains why that was the case.
Who is Monkey D. Dragon?
Before discussing the events of One Piece chapter 1066, readers should know a little more about Dragon. He is the son of Monkey D. Garp and the father of Monkey D. Luffy, the main protagonist of the series. Of course, shonen logic dictates that Dragon must be extremely powerful.
The Monkey family tree carries the infamous Will of D. While it is not clear as to why carriers are considered “natural enemies of God” by the Celestial Dragons. Historically speaking, they are responsible for significant world events, such as what Marshall D. Teach did at Marineford.
Dragon is the leader of the Revolutionary Army. He made it his life’s mission to bring down the Celestial Dragons, since he despises their wanton cruelty. One Piece chapter 1066 gives some insight into why he made this decision.
The Ohara incident was all the motivation Monkey D. Dragon needed
One Piece chapter 1066 featured a Dragon and Vegapunk flashback, shortly after Ohara was hit by a Buster Call. They visited the island to pay their respects to Clover. Along with the rest of the Ohara scholars, he sacrificed his life in order to preserve the history of the world.
Dragon was disgusted with how the government labeled Clover a demon. In response, he told Vegapunk that enough was enough. Dragon wanted to create a powerful army that could overthrow them in the very near future. One Piece chapter 1066 explains why the Revolutionary Army was founded.
Needless to say, anytime the World Government tries to clean up their messes, it backfires spectacularly. For instance, during the Onigashima Raid, the Five Elders ordered Luffy’s assassination so he wouldn’t awaken his Devil Fruit. Lo and behold, they unintentionally caused it to happen.
