The French Revolution -- which had many good ideas -- felt that men could be swayed by "Reason." The French renamed the months according to logic. Ten days in a week were decreed. All perfectly sensible. None of it took. It is a pity. Frankly, "Thermidor" was a great name for the high month of summer; surpassing the bland July, and "Floreal" is a better name for a spring month than April or May, but the rest of the calendar floundered. People refused to use it. Humans are not perfectible. The thoroughly reasonable calendar failed within 12 years. By 1805, the French were back to the old calendar (though the metric system endured).
Of course, this could have been appreciated by a quick introduction to the Christian concept of Original Sin, which recognizes the fallen nature of men, and thereby limits the boundaries of good government.
