Richard was liked and feared too much to have had such a thing thrust upon him. I wonder how the barons would have reacted to John being ransomed? Probably they'd have paid his captors NOT to release him!
I thought he might have reacted to Magna Carta much the same way Hitler would have reacted Gandhi's tactics in India. Or is that too fanciful? Could he have gotten away with having the most vocal of the Barons arrested for treason and executed? Could John have possibly done something like that.?.
Without Magna Carta, the non aristocracy would barely notice, if at all; The concept was never about the rights of the common people. It was to protect the Barons from the king.
