Did you ever read of any revolution in a nation, brought about by the punishment of those in power, inflicted by those who had no power at all? You read of a riot act in a country which is called one of the freest in the world, where a few neighbors cannot assemble without the risk of being shot by a hired soldiery, the engines of despotism. We may see such an act in America.

Patrick Henry

Year: 1788
Context: Speech to the Virginia Ratifying Convention
Tags: America, engines of despotism, freest in the world, inflicted, nation, neighbors, power, punishment, revolution, riot act, risk, shot, soldiery, speech
