In the face of a wave of condemnations, supporters withdrew into silence, leaving Schmidt almost alone to defend his work and call for conditions of open debate. Saxony and Prussia issued book bans, followed by the German emperor's council and a host of other central European powers, and Schmidt was incarcerated. With the aid of loyal friends, he fled to Hamburg, where he spent most of his remaining years in relative obscurity, all the while continuing his campaign to bring free thinking to the German lands.""@en ;
