5 Unkovskii Speech as Tver Deputy to St. Petersburg (1859) “The entire life of the people is under government tutelage. No question, however trifling, can be dealt with by the people themselves.... They dare not [without official sanction] repair a miserable bridge, or hire an elementary school teacher.... The whole of our administration is a vast system of malfeasance raised to the dignity of government.... We need the emancipation not only of the peasants, but also of the whole people.”

7 Moscow Zemstvo Address and Alexander II’s Response (1865) Zemstvo votes (270-36) for resolution “to complete the structure of the state by convoking a general assembly of elected personnel of the Russian land to consider needs common to the entire country.” Alexander’s response: “Such deviations from the order of things established by laws in force can only make it more difficult for me to fulfill my plans; in no case can they assist in the achievement of the purpose to which they may be directed.”

8 1879 Moscow Zemstvo Address “All those present unanimously recognize that only a constitutional order, resting on the force of right and law, can disarm terror and limit the arbitrariness of the authorities. In view of this unanimity of outlook, it was decided to organize locally the dissemination of constitutionalist ideas and to assist all attempts to submit constitutionalist demands to the government.”
