The Mail of Dishonor

In one of the most difficult moments of the French Revolution (September 1793), when Robespierre feared that his political project would topple, the revolutionary government promulgated a law that identified suspects as "all those who due to their behavior, relationships, intent, or writings, reveal themselves in favor of federalism and as enemies of liberty."

Maduro against the Bolivarian Constitution
