Police Chief Blackmoor of San Jose said today that police
should act quickly and on their own to quell campus riots.
They were immigrants who had come too far off for their
lord to be traced and who, since their serfdom could not be presumed, necessarily passed
for free, although born of unfree parents.
But the fact had to be transformed into a right.
It was essential that the villains, who came to settle in
the towns to seek a new livelihood, should feel safe and should not have to fear being
taken back by force to the manors from which they had escaped.
They must be delivered from labor services and from all
the hated dues by which the servile population was burdened, such as the obligation to
marry only a woman of their own class and leave to the lord part of their inheritance.
Willy-nilly, in the course of the 12th century, these
claims, backed up as they often were by dangerous revolts, had to be granted.
The most obstinate conservatives, such as Guibert de Nogent, in 1115, were reduced to a wordy revenge, speaking of those "detestable
communes" which the serfs had set up to escape from their lord's authority and to do
away with his most lawful rights.
Freedom became the legal status of the bourgeoisie, so
much so that it was no longer a personal privilege only, but a territorial one, inherent
in urban soil just as serfdom was in manorial soil.
In order to obtain it, it was enough to have resided for
a year and a day within the walls of the town.
Stadtluft macht frei ! City air makes a man free!
And the city was pure gold,
like unto clear glass.
And the gates of it shall not be shut
at all by day.
for there shall be no night there.
