Living in REVOLUTIONARY Times





 ANALYSIS/OPINION:

Over the weekend, in addition to being in the World Cup soccer final against tiny Croatia, France got to celebrate Bastille Day, which commemorates the July 14, 1789, storming of the infamous Paris prison.
It’s fair to say the soccer match was worthier of feting. The Bastille takeover sparked the French Revolutionaries’ overthrow of the royal aristocracy and the onset of the Reign of Terror.
France’s revolutionaries began by beheading as many people as possible, including colleagues not deemed sufficiently revolutionary.
Unlike America’s Revolution, which the colonists fought to restore God-given rights usurped by King George III, the French Revolution ushered in the false religion of socialism, grounded in atheism.
If you compare the two over the past two centuries, it should be clear even to Bernie Sanders about which revolution has been more beneficial. Here’s a quick recap:
The French Revolution emboldened Karl Marx and other socialist thinkers, culminating in Vladimir Lenin’s communist takeover of Russia in 1917, followed by Adolf Hitler’s National Socialist Workers Party’s takeover of Germany in 1933.
