Re: Help with quote from Collected Writings

Dear Bart,

Is it the quotation above? I'm not sure because she says juust the
opposite - that the politicians do not follow the ten commandments! The
article is: "Our Christian XIXth Century Ethics" (CW X, 81-88)

"Politics does not enter into the programme of our magazine's activity. Yet
as everything under the sun now appears to have become little else but a
legal permission to break the ten commandments, a regular government license
to the rich for the commission of all sins which, when perpetrated by the
poor, land the criminal in jail, or hoist him upon the gallows - it becomes
difficult to avoid touching upon politics. There are cases which, emanating
directly from the realm of political and diplomatic action, cry loudly the
common ethics of humanity for exposure and punishment." (CW X, 82)

Then she continues talking about Queen Nathalie of Servia and her son, that
was not with due to political causes.

Hope it helps,
