Description

Excerpt from The End of the Miserable World We have always trembled before your muskets and your cannons; we have feared your prisons and your tortures; but today we fear nothing. We warn you that you shall come and kneel before the people but fear not, the powerful is never wicked A the elephant never tramples on the reptile but heedlessly. Allow us to tell what is a bourgeois. It is a man without generous ideas, of gross appetite, cold, insen sible at the sight of the misfortune, misery or despair of his fellow-man. The bourgeois is the king the king is but his servant. He commands everywhere and speculates on every thing, even on his bastard children which he sells to the first planter he meets. The son of the bourgeois smilingly spends his youthful life and his fortune he is the king of the houses of illfame whose inmates strip him of his money and jewels.
