Citoyen Jacques-Tac opines at a cafe. "A trial of the Capets by the Herbertists that rule by whatever means that will keep their pathetic minority in power would be a hatchet job useful only to the Herbertist elites. I see no reason for elites to try other elites....it should wait until a proper time."

Have you already changed your undergarments with your cellmates, by the way?
Insulting Parisians of being eggheads? Are you saying that they are not wise enough to decide who to vote for in QL?

And you haven't answered the question - like other Hebertistes don't seem to like answering my questions - about the blood on your hands?

The same hands, we all known, that planted the forged letter on the body of the most respectable Girondin, Citoyen Bernadotte...How much did you pay for the forgery Citoyen ShAA?

Surely no one opposes truth and justice for the Capet and for France?
The Parlement of Paris, a specialised court from the Curia Regis, is a significant contributing factor for current state of affairs.
There's a legacy of distrust of judges throughout France.

What is still needed to convince you all that our dear former monarch should be put on trial?

The crimes of Louis XVI are unhappily all too real. They are consistent, they are notorious. Do we even have to ask the question of whether a nation has the right to judge, and execute, its highest ranking public official . . . when, to more securely plot against the nation, he concealed himself behind a mask of hypocrisy?

Or when, instead of using the authority confided to him to protect his countrymen, he used it to oppress them? Or when he turned the laws into an instrument of violence to crush the supporters of the Revolution? Or when he robbed the citizens of their gold in order to subsidize their foes, and robbed them of their subsistence in order to feed the barbarian hordes who came to slaughter them? Or when he created monopolies in order to create famine by drying up the sources of abundance so that the people might die in misery and hunger? Or when he declared himself the leader of the traitors and conspirators, and when he turned against the nation those arms he had received to defend it? Or when he hatched the plot to have the defenders of liberty slaughtered, and enchain the people once again? To even ask this question is an insult to reason, an outrage to justice, a perversion of nature.

To doubt if a despot sullied with all possible crimes, or if a monster still covered with the blood of those friends of France whose slaughter he had commanded, can be brought to judgment and executed?

To doubt this is to mock humanity and to abandon all sense of shame. . . .The Republic will ultimately falter under such weakness.

Like you Hebertists are so fond of saying: too little, too late!


The poll is closed, take up your quarrel with you faction leaders, apparently they have deemed that is more important to debate the women's right to vote, and of course, they know better than you mere underlings.
