“Dear Friend, the wolves have always eaten the sheep; are the sheep going to eat the wplves this time?” This sentence, which comes from a letter which Madame Jullien wrote to her son during the French Revolution, contains the essence of reversal. So far a few wolves have held down held down so many sheep. Now the time has come for the many sheep to turn against the few wolves. It is true that sheep are not carnivorous, but, in its very absurdity, those who have been defenceless for so long suddenly find teeth. Their numbers have to make up for the experience in viciousness which they lack.
