Scary lessons for America from pre-revolutionary France.


Summary: Today we speculate about our future based on some similarities with 18thC France. They too had their 1%, hungry for wealth and power. In a time of troubles, they refused to compromise and so plunged France into a long bloody transition to a new regime. Our situation is very different, but there are similarities. “It’s all about power and the unassailable might of money.”
— E. P. Arnold Royalton, the great 21st century industrialist in “ Speed Racer ” (2008). “Liberty Leading the People”, Eugène Delacroix (1830). Contents
