"Infatuated with a lust of power, he attempted to make all bow under him, crushed all those who opposed his will, and in order to show how unbounded was his authority, exerted his tyrannic empire over even the minds of his people, and armed a ferocious soldiery against those subjects who refused to betray their consciences."
— Marat, Jean-Paul (1743-1793)
