A long tradition of circumloqution that should inspire the al-Zarqawi’s of the world

From a prominent member of the Committee of Public Safety we find the ‘same shit, different generation’ paroxysm at work. It most always involves deranged Elves Euros discussing what they think should be other people's options, and talking in circles until freedom and terror start to sound like the same thing.

« La terreur n'est autre chose que la justice prompte, sévère, inflexible; elle est donc une émanation de la vertu ; elle est moins un principe particulier, qu’une conséquence du principe général de la démocratie, appliqué aux plus pressants besoins de la patrie. »

"Terror is nothing other than justice, prompt, severe, inflexible; it is therefore an emanation of virtue; it is not so much a special principle as it is a consequence of the general principle of democracy applied to our country's most urgent needs."
- Maximilien François Marie Isidore de Robespierre

Sound familiar?
