“punishing the traitors” as we see can be taken very seriously for doing the smallest of things such as serving wine and cutting down trees. The needy were often forgotten in the chaos of the revolution and they were still starving. Although Rosepierre started off as a clear-minded and guided by Rousseau's Social Contract , he soon formed self-guiding ideals and society can speak for him with the thousands of unjust deaths. Lastly, there was this controversial topic of just behavior for which it was clear through the Execution Record of 1793 weren't so just in the end. Robespierre believes that terror is “hard justice” but he still considers it justice which I find very interesting. Although he “detests the death penalty” he still supports terror and cruelty to “punish traitors” and marginalize the tyrants. He finds that while France is “in a revolution the state is at war, [and] it doesn’t have to follow all the laws”. This statement leaves one wondering who is in charge of the manipulation of laws while the state is in a so-called position of war true the rebellion? This can revert to Robespierre trying to gain power or simply supporting the violence, terror, and horror of the revolution.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
