REPUBLICANISM

REPUBLICANISM

... this principle,
this gift of equality and identical in being,
this excellence, this intimate radiance, this civic justice,
Where was she, who brought her to us?
… Because open to the sublime song of reason and heart,
the ages of slavery and exile of body and soul are now in a hurry,
behold, the XXI arrives demanding ballot boxes, and votes, and scrutinies,
minutes and proclamations, exact verdicts with which he exhales and lives in triumph
democracy and its virtue;
… Time has expired and the citizen and redemptive fire demands its establishment:
the universal being, his honor or his guide, his beacon or civil light: the republic;
not in vain - I go back and say - I am his champion, I, I am his prince.
