This chapter focuses on the major political events in Paris, France, after Victor Considerant returned to his homeland in September 1869. It explains that the opposition candidates won in the general legislative elections of May 1869 and a number of Considerant's old friends and allies, including Frédéric Dorian, Wladimir Ganeur, and Edouard Ordinaire, became members of the Corps Legslatif. It suggests that Considerant's arrival also coincided with the awakening of the French labor movement.
