    This stuff has captivated me of late. I studied it in High school but that was 30+ years ago. Recently I came across this character of those years Maximilien Robespierre. This was a speech that he gave to institute the Cult of the Supreme Being.
    Some of this stuff reminds me of the Cultural Revolution of the late 60's, "Summer of Love", Woodstock, San Francisco and all that.

    I haven't read the long message above but the French Revelution was quiet horrorable to the Frech citizens. It worked then and it has been used time and time again sense then and with similar success. History repeats itself. That's the reason we all should read more.
