Maximilien Robespierre in the opinion of some could be referred to as a victim of his own success As a member of the Committee of Public Safety he was responsible for many of the new laws being put into affect in Revolutionary France Robespierres benevolent purpose to have a government that all people were equally represented and treated by the government as stated in the third article in the Rights on Man as The Principle of all sovereignty resides essentially in the nation No body nor individual may exercise any authority which does not proceed from the nation Declaration of the Rights of Man 1789 would ultimately be his demise Over time Robespierres ideals changed and his need for power became a stepping-stone that the French nation would have to overcome Robespierre successfully helped create a government for the common man and raised the spirits of those same people but after time passed his greed and power clouded his judgment and changed his motives In 1789 the National Assembly of France created a document very much similar to the American Constitution The Declaration of the Rights of Man These seventeen articles defined how each member of the nation of France would become a free man By giving the French citizens certain inalienable rights it set a much-needed change from the monarchy of past Giving the common man rights such as the simple right of equality was a very big stepping-stone Men who formally had no power were now able to sit at a level table and voice their opinions with the former aristocracy The protection of these new laws allowed the nation to construct a government that like the infant United States was governed by the people and for the people Robespierre had expanded on these ideals later with many very important pamphlets and speeches that would bolster the fragile morale of the common Frenchman Robespierres papers The Cult of the Supreme Being
