Reign of terror
Speech on the Justification of the Use of Terror
This Terror must come to a end.
Civil liberties were suspended and and the convention ordered that "if material or moral proof exists, independently of the evidence of witnesses, the latter will not be heard, unless this formality should appear necessary, either to discover accomplices or for other important reasons concerning the public interest."
The Region of Terror was designed to fight enemies of the revolution and to prevent counter revolution from gaining ground and Marie Antoinette was the first victim of this terror
this speech made radical Jacobins come to feel that the terror must stop. Danton rose in the Convention was calling for an end to the Terror but fearful of Danton's reputation for eloquence, the Convention passed a decree stating that any accused person who insulted the court should be prohibited from speaking in his own defense.
