The Committee for Public Safety
Any law which violates the inalienable rights of man is essentially unjust and tyrannical; it is not a law at all. - A Leader of the French Revolution*
Revolutions are dangerous things. Although the goals may be admirable, often times the result is far from what those goals were. The French Revolution is a case in point. Today it would have been called a popular uprising. The peasants rising up against an oppressive King....storming the castle and celebrating freedom. That is how it should have been, but something went terribly wrong.
