There are some creepy parallels to our current situation within the history of the French Revolution. What do you think?
AMEN!The parallels are that the people of this nation who quietly do the work, pay the taxes and serve in the military (the 3rd estate) are constantly exploited, harangued and abused by the media (1st estate) and the political class (2nd estate) for basically not being them.
The current soy-boy thugs in Seattle are not the revolutionaries. We will be the revolutionaries once we decide we had had enough.
The liberal idiots calling for a civil war have no idea what they are fomenting.
Or just shut down their jobs, impose capricious and arbitrary regulations, and inject a constant message of racial discord...for month, after month, after months with no defined end in sight.Sadly, that will never happen as long as there's a movie on tv and food in the fridge. If you want to make 'the people' wake up and take back this country, just cut the power for a week or so.
While I don't think that there was much "racism" during the FR per-say, I do believe that there was a lot of bigotry in general during it. Which can be linked in a way to our current divide.Not really the same, can't compare that to this racist crap in anyway.
