(I know, who needs another political thread.)

I'm no expert but it seems to me that what is happening today in the USA is very much like the French Revolution.

leftist intellectuals decide that the existing order is evil and illegitimate and they have the right and privilege to overturn and establish a new order with themselves in charge.

consider:

*absolute intolerance of any disagreement.

*rejection, even hatred, of Christianity. This is a values conflict, and Christianity, identified with traditional Western philosophies, is considered to be part of the problem.

*ideological purity tests.

*forced compliance. France's Directorate would punish people that did nothing wrong for 'lack of zeal'.

does anyone else see this?
what next?

Speaking of French revolution, French Elite Caught Violating Lockdown Rules by Attending Secret Restaurants..

They know what they are doing. They are pushing us to the limits. They need us to destroy ourselves and by their policies they will do it. The longer it takes, the more they get to experiment.

King Louis XVI had " absolute power " over France. He was in power purely by lineage. Hence the revolution for change.

I don't think any US President has had " absolute power " He is voted into or out off office by the people.

Therefore what's happening in The US today is nothing like what happened in France. It's totally different.

I think you are right.

These psychological torture games they are playing does work on an individual.

What they didn't factor in was that we aren't alone.

We have families. We have responsibilities. Some of us have faith.

So in essence they can't break us because we are not living for ourselves.

You could be right but by no means are they intellectuals.
They like to think they are but they are not.

Most of the people who died during witxh trials and the inquisitions were Christians. Nothing to do with converting and everything to do with hysteria and suppression of women and science.

I remember a time when ATS members were scared of guillotines.

Oh man, there was a thread a few years ago now, someone found some government doc for procuring guillotines.

It was the smoking gun.

Turns out it was paper guillotines.

Ahh the good old days!

Anyway, yeah cool, now ATS members want guillotines.

We’ve come full circle.

The left wing were the revolutionaries who overthrew the Bourbon Monarchy to create a democratic republic. The right wing fought against them as they support traditional authoritarian powers of monarchy, regimé and the Church.

The term right wing comes from the supporters of the monachy being on the right hand side of god/the monarch Constitutional Monachies and Parliaments. Those who voted against the monarch and for rights and democracy were alligned on the left wing of Parliament.

Pretty sure the US is the only country in the world that doesn't use the naming system and republican/conservative vs liberal, there's no monarch to overthrow in the US and both main parties are right wing so there's no resemblance really.

"Like Saturn, the Revolution devours its children", said journalist Jacques du Pan. As we know, Robespierre would come to meet his own guillotine, and the reign of terror would be the de facto ideology. Napoleon, the revolutionary wars, rise from this mess. So much for human rights.

Hmm. That could be a way to increase attendance at Stated meetings. And it’d be a weird thing to see on the notice. “For the program this month, we will be practicing some evil sh*t.”
