She has no choice except to believe, on the contrary, that men are human beings, and she finds it hard to forgive them when they act like animals.
You must drop all your democracy. You must not believe in the people. One class is no better than another. It must be a case of Wisdom, or Truth. Let the working classes be working classes.
