Mara also has a strong incitement force, drew much loved, very high status in the eyes of the people, and also a place in the government, so it is also a successful politician. However, Mara is a revenge the very heart of the people, jealous and cruel to kill a lot of political opponents and even revolutionaries. Scientist, he was a failure in the lifetime support "phlogiston theory" outdated theories, and later has been criticism of the great chemist Lavoisier hate him, and ultimately lead to some extent he was executed. This is Mara's life tainted.
edit this paragraph Mara "Friends of the People" reported that the French Revolution began the Louis XV era of French Enlightenment thinkers set off continuing the fight for newspapers and freedom of movement, English poet John Milton in 1644 advocated free newspapers of defense, as well as the 1776 Virginia declared newspapers and freedom of action, inspired French newspapers freely owner. 5 July 1788 to the Kingdom of France Administrative Court resolution give the newspaper a de facto freedom. Thereafter until July 1789, all strata of French society to uphold the freedom of newspapers, mainly within the framework of the resolution through brochures and petition to express their demands. Most of the French bourgeoisie strong support of newspapers and freedom, they want to completely abolish censorship. 1789, for newspapers and the freedom of the trend is extremely violent, the crumbling of the old system has been unable to resist.
French Revolution is a the Mara scientific research career end and the beginning of his political career, is the three convening of the meeting so that he believes that they can play their due role. Although he met many difficulties: his booklet "dedicated to the motherland" published by the authorities prohibited. He denounced the night of August 4, hypocrisy article to decree the abolition of the feudal system, nor a printers courage to accept, but he did not lose heart. Newspapers and free social environment, he tried to be like other contemporary politicians, the founder of a newspaper, so that people hear his voice. He founded the first newspaper "patriot" (August 11), introduced to the people in Parliament to discuss the Constitution. But the newspaper published only one that died at birth. After several attempts and efforts, Mara has obtained the consent of the authorities, and finally his revolutionary news reporter's career really started in early September. Mara famous newspaper was born on September 12, 1789. This is an 8 publications, was called the Paris political commentator, 6 (September 16), only the legendary name of "Friends of the People" (Amidu peuple), and Rousseau famously "dedicated to the life of truth" as the inscription. Mara is the only designers and editors of this newspaper.
"Friends of the People" become Paris's most famous newspaper but that also makes Mara strongly advocating revolution of the "Friends of the People", and criticized current affairs sharp Bifeng and harsh language, soon to become Paris's most famous newspaper; prosecuted and persecuted by the authorities powerless in the face in the 1789-1792 period, resulting in the publication of the "Friends of the People," was interrupted many times. Until September 1792. Mara was elected Members of the National Association, was able to continuously published newspaper. Before and after Mara was assassinated on July 13, 1793, published a total of more than 900. "Friends of the People" from the outset as a fierce polemic newspaper, a propaganda tool of the revolutionaries boarded the political stage of the Revolution. Mara is an important representative of many professional revolutionaries during the French Revolution, as a newspaper editor, he newspapers with their own treated as the same. After October 16, 1789, article published by the "Friends of the People" and signed Mara - "Friends of the People", which is a special status of self-forging Mara for his revolutionary activities. Mara claiming to be a professional revolutionaries should have three roles: whistleblowers, teachers and revolutionary activists; to his newspaper, he also specified the triple function: expose the counter-revolutionary and educate the people to cultivate the citizens and revolutionaries to promote people to carry out the revolution. "Friends of the People" is exactly in line with the three functions. The Mara show that in 13 of the "Friends of the People" interim themselves as news reporters a clear purpose: to fight with the enemies of the state, I will mercilessly attack a liar, I expose the hypocrisy and expose the traitor, I will be in the public affairs exclusion through false enthusiasm, weak and stupid, incompetent service motherland, speculative greed of the people, the motherland must not be suspicious any trust. No matter how harsh my pen, only so evil and thugs intimidating, it is respect for the truth. 1791 letter addressed to Camille de Mulan, Mara stressed the "Friends of the People", is also his own role in the Revolution: "destined to train the rights of citizens, inspired by the desire for them to enjoy the right to, and inspired they defend their own rights and boldly for the right to revenge; it is destined to make they learn to obey the just and wise laws, and resist unjust and arbitrary laws; it is destined to make the treacherous intentions of the army learn to identify the officers, contempt imperious command to lay down their weapons, ordered them to massacre citizens when they reported the threat to sneer} it is destined to smash all the forces of despotism, until the power to establish justice above; sad victim freed from oppression , until the freedom of triumphant victory., this is I have been engaged in the activities, I am sure I did not waste time
"Friends of the People" published articles are usually quite long, are written in the style of the study of political or social analysis of each of the "Friends of the People", Mara inserted many letters from readers or communication, these letters considered by researchers to be handed down during the Revolution, one of the most peculiar literature. These letters have played an important role in the mission of the "Friends of the People" to educate the people, after Mara's processing polish, along with those who signed the letter combination and the "Friends of the People" as a whole. The news of the "Friends of the People" is mainly related to the Parliament's deliberations and the day-to-day problems, especially the problem of food supply in Paris. Two parallel is an eternal theme of the "Friends of the People". They are an important part of the Mara revolutionary pedagogy, because they have to educate the people and the vigilance of the people function. "Friends of the People" stand in the position of vulnerable groups, reported that the suffering of the people's lives, put forward the proposition to safeguard the interests of the people, has played the role of "the mouthpiece of the people. He said: "Where are those who do not have any property, not the pursuit of any positions not get any benefit from the social contract motherland everywhere they were sentenced to hard labor, they are not under the yoke of the masters, is in the shackles of their compatriots being; matter what kind of revolution is coming. slavery, poverty, oppression their eternal destiny. then they may just strengthen their suffering. chains countries owed what to wear them? they only owe under the hate and curse. "At the same time, of government have an instinctive pessimism, fear, either as free news reporters or elected as a Member, Mara, Mara are always stick to their attitude and position. He would never satisfied with the Revolution has been achieved, almost every issue of the "Friends of the People" published articles criticizing current affairs, accusing the legal creation of goals with specific consequences caused by the legal gap. He repeatedly warned the people, Parliament has taken measures just to the interests of the oligarchy, the actual situation of the evidence that the lower classes tragic. He attacked the parliament announced a brilliant principle, but did not care about its specific implementation. Deprived of the the passive citizens the right to vote, from the Constituent Assembly of the Legislative Assembly and the King's tugging back and forth, to June 2, 1793, ultra-righteous cleaning Girondins before the National Association of the negative attitude of the revolution, had been his fierce criticism. Mara also frequently criticized the government's policies and measures at the same time, came to light within the revolutionary camp "enemies of the state". His important role for Parliament revolutionaries almost all have a deep distrust, doubt the motives of their words and deeds, has been "singled out by the national summit, almost always only going for the nation forging chains" that "cleaning Parliament is a way to save the country. " "Friends of the People" has to attack Neikelabo and Lafayette, also criticized the people trying to stop the pace of the revolution. Especially in the struggle against the Girondins in the spring of 1793, Mara Republic pain, tense internal situation and catastrophic external situation, accusing the guitar by the mission of waging war can not make war victory, accusing it of the implementation of the "annexation" policy, accusing it of letting inflation, and the people to the abyss of suffering. He opposed the revolution indefinitely radical people scold even more acerbic than advocates condemned the old system. Until the expulsion of the Girondins, Marathi real mountain partisan control of the National Association together. expression of political ideology of political ideology Mara
Mara expressed in the "Friends of the People" in the "Friends of the People" can be summed up in a few main points: first, the establishment of the government of the necessity of the people above the sole. is the most effective support for radical revolution. Mara Rousseauism., He was convinced that the collective guarantee of virtue; for the interests of the people to resort to violence is also reasonable. Second, the contact with the opposition between the disadvantaged and its rulers, is closely linked with their divergent interests; not reconcile this conflict of interest can not be solved only by the people of the ruler of the eternal constant supervision, especially to be limited by an independent, public newspapers criticized. Third. Noted that the relative legal. In his view, regardless of the origin and legitimacy of the law, in the case of elite betrayal, way out of the people can only be by means of violence, to resort to the uprising: to reinvent the wheel, start again. These views Mara thought the strongest, most active thing, it makes Mara indisputably become a permanent departure from the principle of the creation of government action may
and critics. Admittedly, Mara is both a political idealist, but also a political pessimist, and thus was out of tune with the vast majority of revolutionaries. His sympathy for the vulnerable groups and hatred, oppression forces him to produce a very strong world-weary emotion, and promote unjust society can not be suppressed indignation he let it all out in the text. the revolutionary pedagogy
Mara aims to tell the people means that they cheated on their trick. In particular, is to educate them to recognize their own way out: the people should take advantage of their right to refuse to law deceptive and government agencies to resist evil. Mara text book is full of violence, that is natural. "Friends of the People", a large number of reservations the Mara call to use violence to clear the call of the enemies of the revolution, including the appalling torture and cut off limbs and other means. One of the most extreme is attempted the next day in the Louis XVI fled, Mara cries of "Friends of the People": "Now is scored ministers and their lackeys, all the bad officials and treason officer, all counter-revolutionary town officials, the head of National Assembly of all traitors. September 1792 massacre, Mara violent speech is also a step by step upgrade, from the requirements and cut down 40 000 to 270 000 head has been on the rise, trying to to exchange for social stability and success of the revolution, Mara will also establish a strong government and even the rule of the dictator as advancing a magic weapon of the revolution, he often called on to establish the dictatorship of the "Friends of the People" most famous articles published in 177 (1790), 497 (June 22, 1791) and 542 (August 1791 30E1), his continuous requirement to establish Military Tribunal, elected leader of a discretionary or military officer to rule after the Republic was established in September 1792, Mara requiring the appointment of a wise, is
