STOCKMANN: I say, that the town ought to be razed! Everyone who lives by lies should be exterminated like vermin! Otherwise you will infect the whole country. You’ll even go so far, as to make sure, that the rest of the country deserves to be destroyed with you. And when you have managed that, I will, from the bottom of my heart, say: good riddance. Let all the people be wiped out.
CITIZEN: There speaks a true enemy of the people!
HOVSTAD: Yes, dammit! The people have spoken!
CITIZENS: Yes, we have! An enemy of the people! He hates his country! He hates the people!
