Paris is in the hands of the people. It is an exciting time, when it seems that really change is coming. As one of the workers puts it, "This will be the first night in the history of Paris, when there will be no murder, no cheating, no attacks on women. This is the first time it is safe to walk the streets. We don't need the police. The bankers, swindlers, tax collectors, factory owners, priests, prostitutes, and politicians have all run off to Versailles. At long last, Paris is a fit place to live in."
