I cannot believe you are praising a speech made by Oliver Cromwell populist leader of his time, who took parliament away from the people, gave himself the wonderous Populist title of "Lord Protector" a euphemism for dictator, committed the only regicide in our history when the country killed the King and inflicted his religion on the country to control the population, closing down free speech and turning this country resembling an historical version of Gilead in the Handmaid's Tale.
