Spectres

Spectres, words, ghosts.

Only he who is himself enlightened does not fear spectres when he at the same time has a well-disciplined army at his disposal as a guarantee of public peace. Only he can say what (the ruler of) a free state dare not say: Argue as much as you want and about whatever you want but obey!

A spectre is haunting Europe — the spectre ofCommunism. All the Powers of old Europe have entered into a holy alliance to exorcise this spectre: Pope and Czar, Metternich and Guizot, French Radical and German police-spies.”

Incidentally, communist argument seems to extend beyond the public exercise of scholarship.
