"Licensed prostitution, direct material theft, house-breaking, murder, brigandage for the lower classes; while skillful spoliation, indirect, refined theft, clever exploitation of human cattle, carefully planned and brilliant executed betrayals, transcendent pieces of sharp practice in short, all the truly elegant vices and lucrative crimes which the law is far too polite to interrupt remain the monopoly of the upper classes."
                                                                     ----La Phalange, December 1, 1838.
