It’s the French Revolution — Not the American Revolution — All Over Again

There could not be a second American Revolution today. The modern equivalents of Madison, Franklin, Jefferson, Washington, Paine, and Adams would all have been cancelled, jailed or deplatformed by now. Under the unfolding dictatorship of the Biden regime, they would possibly be murdered or convicted as “domestic terrorists”. The history that’s repeating itself seems to resemble the French Revolution more closely than the American one. A pretty good description of the French Revolution from New World Encyclopedia online:

The French Revolution (1789–1799) was a period of ideological, political and social upheaval in the political history of France and Europe as a whole, during which the French polity, previously an absolute monarchy with feudal privileges for the aristocracy and Catholic clergy, underwent radical change to forms based on Enlightenment principles of republicanism, citizenship, and rights. These changes were accompanied by violent turmoil, including executions and repression during the Reign of Terror, and warfare involving every other major European power.

The Revolution was originally a popular uprising against the absolute power of the king and against the privileges and wealth of the elite, and was perpetrated in the name of liberty, equality and fraternity. In reality it led to the loss of liberty, dictatorship and nationalism. The revolution was based on a hatred of tradition and desire to use the power of the state to create a new order. People were given new identities as citizens of the state. To crush the resistance to revolution and the new order about 18,000 – 40,000 people were executed.
