Thought for the Day... Robespierre

Robespierre's Death Mask

Here is a little Sunday thought for the day from somebody who actually put his ideas into to action and took the consequences. DS
"Now, what morals can a people have when its laws seem designed to encourage furious activity in the thirst for riches? And what more certain means of exacerbating that passion can the laws take, then to stigmatize honorable poverty, and reserve all the honors and the power for wealth?" Robespierre - April 1791
