When Robespierre became the President of the National Convention, he operated on the belief that anyone who was against the Republic was an enemy. He imprisoned ex-Nobles, clergy, members of opposing party, or even his own party for speaking against the Republic and guillotined them through a body called the Revolutionary Tribunal.

During his reign, the wages and prices of commodities were fixed by the government, even the shopkeepers were not allowed to sell for more.
