Camille_Desmoulins-1

“It is marvellous that I have walked for five years along the precipices of the Revolution without falling over them, and that I am still living; and I rest my head calmly upon the pillow of my writings… I have dreamed of a Republic such as all the world would have adored. I could never have believed that men could be so ferocious and so unjust.”

Camille Desmoulins – French Revolutionary and Journalist – murdered by Jacobin terrorists 5th April 1794.

Does history teach us nothing except that horrors will inevitably be repeated?
