Though you are all at variance among yourselves as to what this new authority should be, yet to bring about the arrangements proposed by each of your groups, you stop short at no crimes: murders, explosions, executions, or civil war.

It is all because among a small group of people, hardly one ten- thousandth of the whole nation, some have decided that what is I
