The Real Bastille Day

The Real Bastille Day

The French Revolution was really a digestive eruption of all the basest instincts in the lowest elements of society, led by power-drunk ideologues of the radical Left. It was utterly unlike the American rebellion against the English colonial officials – which amounted to a regional secession, led by the responsible members of the upper middle class. And for that fact we should be forever grateful, as should other countries which emulated the American model of political reform, rather than the French, as Hannah Arendt and Wilhelm Röpke have written. Of course, apologists for the Revolution will point to the inequalities and injustices of the Ancien Regime as justification for the bloodbath.

Ironically enough, apartness for Israelis and Palestinians—in the form of a two-state solution—is exactly what President Carter advocates....
