THE EMINENT DOMAIN REVOLT
But the quietness lasted too long. The new forces did not emerge.
The obsolete party did not mean to yield power. On the contrary, it
gripped the nation’s throat with a tenacity that was terrifying, for it
pertained to another realm than life. For the grip of a living man must
relax if he grows tired; it is only ghostly hands that, without term, can
continue to clench.
