oN had no such ideas
took only a short time for N to declare himself First Consul for life

domestic policy on his own [though he had a governmen t which would decide on iss
the way N saw fit]
Liberty
o2nd article of new constitution declared freedom of speech and thought as one of the most
important tenants of the new state [barring there was no abuse of this freedom could be
sued and penalized by law but in general allowed individuals to express their own
opinion]
oN initially was okay with this- however after he started military campaigns he became a
constant target for criticism [went their on own ambitions how can we trust him?]
odecided to curb free press [84 papers]
owithin a few years, only 4 remained and even these 4 always had to submit articles that
made political statements to consultation with N
oFr reorganized after Rev 83 departments created initially
purpose initially to break up old feudal structure of Fr modernized the state
N left this in tact but to each department he appointed a head [prefect] which
gave him full control of every department [prefects had more power than any
individual had before Rev had absolute power]
centralized control over entire Fr state
