“If I were talking to men who had love of liberty and respect for themselves, and I wanted to incite them to revolt, I should confine myself in my speech to reciting the powers of a prefect [Parisian chief of police].”

–Pierre Joseph Proudhon, The General Idea of the Revolution in the 19th Century
