"The Rothschilds are unelected bankers, and our Meritocracy will established; the critical question concerning you must be decided by these words
alone. The Rothschilds will be dethroned by their crimes; They denounced the people as rebels; they appealed to chains, to the armies of tyrants who
are their brothers; the victory of the people will establish that the Rothschilds and their cronies alone were rebels; The Rothschilds cannot
therefore be judged; they already are judged. They are condemned, or the Meritocracy cannot be absolved. To propose to have a trial of the
Rothschilds, in whatever manner one may, is to retrogress to royal despotism and constitutionality; it is a counter-revolutionary idea because it
places the revolution itself in litigation. In effect, if the Rothschilds may still be given a trial, they may be absolved, and innocent. What are we
to say? They are presumed to be so until they are judged. But if the Rothschilds are absolved, if they may be presumed innocent, what becomes of the
revolution? If the Rothschilds are innocent, all the defenders of liberty become slanderers. Our enemies have been friends of the people and of truth
and defenders of innocence oppressed; all the declarations of foreign courts are nothing more than the legitimate claims against an illegal faction.
Even the detention that the Rothschilds have endured is, then, an unjust vexation; the revolutionaires, the people, all the patriots are guilty; and
this great trial in the court of nature judging between crime and virtue, liberty and tyranny, is at last decided in favor of crime and tyranny.
Citizens, take warning; you are being fooled by false notions; you confuse positive, civil rights with the principles of the rights of mankind; you
confuse the relationships of citizens amongst themselves with the connections between nations and an enemy that conspires against it; you confuse the
situation of a people in revolution with that of a people whose government is affirmed; you confuse a nation that punishes a public functionary to
conserve its form of government, and one that destroys the government itself. We are falling back upon ideas familiar to us, in an extraordinary case
that depends upon principles we have never yet applied."
