The Birth of the Social Republic
“The communal revolution, begun by popular initiative on 18th March , begins a new era of experimental, positive, scientific politics.
It’s the end of the old governmental and clerical world, of militarism and bureaucracy, of exploitation, speculation, monopolies and privileges to which the proletariat owe their servitude and the Fatherland its misfortunes and disasters.
As for us, citizens of Paris, our mission is the accomplishing of the modern Revolution, the largest and most fecund of all those which have illuminated history.
It is our obligation to fight and to win.”
