Citizens, our nineteenth century is great, but the twentieth century will be HAPPY. Nothing in it will resemble ancient history. Today’s fears will all have been abolished - war and conquest, the clash of armed nations, the course of civilisation dependent on royal marriages, the birth of hereditary tyrannies, nations partitioned by a congress or the collapse of a dynasty, religions beating their heads together like rams in the wilderness of the infinite. Men will no longer fear famine or exploitation, prostitution from want, destitution born of unemployment - or the scaffold, or the sword, or any other malice of chance in the tangle of events. One might almost say, indeed, that there will be no more events. Men will be happy…

Les Miserables, Victor Hugo

(An extract from Enjolras’ speech on the barricade in Book V.)
