In Macron's France, streets and fields seethe with protest
"Four French president Emmanuel Macron, the look of determination on young faces, only Harold's a deepening crisis, his government, igniting a firestorm of anger that he railroaded a bill through parliament, pushing the legal retirement age from 62 to 64. 17 year old ELISA fagnes is taking part in her first protest in a country that taught the world about people power with its revolution in 1789, and again seething with anger against its leaders graduating from bystander to demonstrator is a generations old Rite of passage. Forehead looks both excited and nervous as she prepares to march down Paris streets to find authority in declaring Noel. Critics accuse Macron of effectively ruling by decree like kings of old, but in the French Revolution, king Louis the 16th ended up on the guillotine. There's no danger of that happening to Macron, but hobbled in parliament and contested on the streets piled high with wreaking garbage. He's been given a tough lesson again about French people power, freshly scrawls slogans in Paris reference 1789. I'm Charles De Ledesma.
"french revolution" Discussed on Crypto Voices
"Hey everybody, welcome, welcome. Today we're gonna look at gold and silver mining and all of the ounces mind. Throughout history. Okay, so here we're gonna take a look at the gold and silver mining industries. Not just in any one country, but totally and cumulatively throughout the world. So here's our gold chart, we're starting in December, 1799, a lot of things happened around this period, the United States revolution, the French Revolution. It's kind of the beginning of the modern republics of the world. And we're taking it through today. So right off the bat, you're going to notice a gradually upward sloping curve. This is the supply, and therefore the demand of the yellow metal around the world. Let's just go ahead and look at it. In December, 1799, there was roughly 300 million. Ounces of gold produced throughout humanity. And by December of 2022, there is roughly 6.4 billion. Ounces of gold produced. Throughout humanity. Now we see it's obviously more gradual here in the 1800s, and it gets steeper here in the 1900s. That's a typical trend of compounding that's a typical trend of compound annual growth. And I will explain a little bit more what those rates are. Towards the latter half of this video. But we can see it's a gradual compounding supply curve. That doesn't show any sign of slowing down. If we look at the 1800s here, I know this is kind of a U.S. centric timeline. But we're catching the California gold rush here when the mid 1800s, a lot of people went out west in the United States. In Canada, to look for gold. We see that we do catch an increase of gold here. You can see the clip is fairly steady. The rate of increase here and then it does increase after the California gold rush begins from 1873 until the start of World War I. We were in a very brief period of what we call the international gold standard or the international classical gold standard.

'The Devil and Bella Dodd' Author Paul Kengor on the Communist War on God
"Book is the devil and Bella Dodd, but you wrote a book called the devil and Karl Marx, where you talk and I think it's very important to understand that there are satanic foundations to atheists, communism, obviously we're dealing with it today in China. What they believe is true or what they what they work against are the most basic things life, the sanctity of the individual, the family. I mean, it seems, if you weren't sure what to think of it, you look at it and say, this looks like a war on God and on God's principles and God's reality. I mean, when you go to war with the family and you start saying that the state owns your children, the state will determine what your children get in school. You, as a parent, have no stay. That strikes at the heart of everything for most people. And we just saw that before young can became governor in Virginia, you have the man whose name I'm happy not to remember, running for governor in Virginia saying something shockingly similar. It is as un American and as um biblical as anything. The idea that parents should not have a say in their children's lives and that kind of thing. But that's at the heart of communist theory. It's at the very basis of it and you're saying that's part of what triggered Bella dot, a died in the world communist, finally to wake up. Yeah, in fact, she read the manifesto where it sneers out and makes fun of what they call the hallowed correlation between parent and child, right? And Bella dot actually believed, well, yeah, the correlation, the relationship between parent and child is hallowed, right? This is something special. But they declared war on that. They declared war on religion. And she learned this very early on when she went to hunter college, one of her professors who, by the way, she's a communist, the professor, and about committing suicide, which a lot of these people did, you know, they had very unhappy lives. And Bella tried to write this innocent little paper, right, about monastic life, which she thought was kind of interesting. And the teacher pulled her in and said, this is a good paper, so I'm going to give you a good grade, but we need to have a talk about this religion stuff. And the other instead, the teacher wanted to wanted her to write positively about the French Revolution, rather than rather than about life and monasteries. But Lenin called it called a medieval mildew spiritual booze. He said there's nothing more abominable than religion. Marx called religion, the opiate of the masses, Mark said communism begins where atheism begins. It was a war on God, which is why they went after and tried to infiltrate the churches. And they tapped her to do that as well.

More and more power to government. More and more talk about equity, this is a very scary headline and I don't get scared much. Washington Post spoke spokesperson for the left. Biden could declare climate emergency as soon as this week. A major reason, if not the major reason. For the price of energy that is to fill up your car, et cetera, is because Joe Biden and the crackpots of the environmentalist movement, rich, white, bored, secular people. That is who comprise the environmentalist movement. It's funny that I'm saying white. Because it usually doesn't matter, but in this case, it's overwhelmingly.

Sexual Identity Is a Continuum?
"Paris gave us the French Revolution, the French Revolution, was rooted in the enlightenment, not in Sinai. And of course, if you went to school, you regard the enlightenment, as the Pinnacle of human moral and intellectual achievement. And it did some good things. Almost nothing there's only bad things. It did some good. But it turns out that the heirs of the enlightenment. Of the people who tell you that there are more than two sexes. Or genders, they have put it. It's a phenomenon that's too gender more than two gender. This non binary idea. It's really a phenomenon if it's scientific that there are more than two genders, or sexes, as it should be called. Why did scientists not know this until about ten years ago?

Wallbuilders President Tim Barton Tells Us About John Witherspoon
"Folks, welcome back. I'm talking to Timothy Barton, president of wall builders dot com. You should check it out. Wall builders dot com. It is just a treasure of resources. But Tim, you're just giving us really important rare information. I've not heard most of this before, but you're talking about how the founders specifically John Witherspoon of New Jersey dealt with the issue of abortion. As you said, we tend to think of it as something fairly recent. Of course, it is no more recent than life or birth or death or recent. These are things that have existed since we have existed. So talk about Witherspoon because we cut you off in the last segment. Yeah, and let me actually add a little more context to John and Witherspoon, because John and Witherspoon as the president of Princeton, he personally trained more founding fathers than any other single individual and Princeton trained more founding fathers in any other university. So John Witherspoon had a direct influence on dozens and dozens and dozens of individuals that we would consider founding fathers. And this is important to know because he's imparting his philosophy into them and certainly you actually see a lot of his ideas coming out and things they did. But one of the lectures he gave while he was at Princeton dealt with the issue of parents over their children and specifically of the unborn child and parents. And one of the things he explained was, for example, this was in the era of the French Revolution, which the French revolutions, there were many of them, they lasted for a couple decades, but there was a lot of bloody deaths, a lot of conquering a lot of messiness in the French Revolution, but in the French Revolution, there was also a lot of secularization. We're under the French church. The French people had been oppressed and abused in many ways. And in America Christianity was very different than in many of these European nations because of the freedom that we gave and how in America Christianity was not the same level of coercive. It was over in Europe. And so John Witherspoon goes through and he explains that, for example, over in France, they're rejecting a lot of these basic biblical Christian notions. He says in France, they believe that parents own the children and actually he says really kind of Europe and the world, but he's specifically talking about France and then goes a little bigger, but what he says is there's people around the world that believe that they own their children. And they can sell them to somebody else's slave. They can sell them off to be indentured. They can give them in marriage, or if they don't want their children, they even can kill their children. And this is before they're born or at birth or even later, that parents are the property of the excuse me, children on the property of the parents. He then says, but in America, we believe it's very different. We believe there's a different role for parents and one of the things he explains is that in America we've denied the power of life and death over the child, we've denied that power to the parents, where the parents role is not to determine if the child lives or dies, but to raise them up and instruct them and nurture them and strengthen

Why Don't Humans Consider Nature as a Catalyst for Political Change?
"We usually don't think of storms or cyclones as being the catalyst of revolution or a massacre, or some sort of massive change in government. Usually we imagine that it's a man-made occurrence. For example, the British are taxiing or stamps too much, which leads to the American Revolution. The French aristocrats are too aloof from the concerns of commoners leading to the French Revolution, but in the case of your book, a cyclone triggers a revolution, or perhaps it lays bare the divisions that were there to begin with. Before we get into the details of the story and there's a lot to get into. Why do you think most people don't consider nature or natural disasters as being a player when it comes to political change? I mean, that's really interesting because I think a lot of, I mean, you hit the nail on the head. We like to think that humans cause their own fate from happening, right? We like to think that there's a narrative of politics that leads inextricably from one thing to another, but we don't, I guess, like knowing that major climactic events affect us. You know, things like, you know, a river moving and the Indus Valley civilization destroys that civilization. We like to think that those politics were just as relevant. But we are natural creatures, and we are affected by these things that are a lot larger than us.

Author Andrew Klavan Pulls People in With 'The Truth and the Beauty'
"Folks, welcome back. I'm talking to Andrew clavin with a K into clavin has written a weird, wild, wonderful genius book. It's called the truth in beauty, how the lives and works of England's greatest poets point the way to a deeper understanding of the words of Jesus. Now, Andrew, I'm a poetry guy, I'm an English literature guy, but what you do here in this book, which I think all the best books do is you introduce people who aren't poetry guys or English. You pull people in. And I want to embarras you further and say that you're a great writer. You're writing is great. The ideas are amazing, but the writing itself. Right in the beginning, you use the word Kaka lorem. And I thought, I'm in. Whatever he's selling, I'm in with this guy, but there are words throughout the book that are just like these brilliant archaic, funny words and stuff. So let's talk about the guts of this. How in the world do you go from actually no, explain to my audience if you would, who were the romantic poets? Just because it's your understanding of the history of romanticism and that movement, which I think I had forgotten 85% of what you say in here. So it's kind of an amazing primer on literary history and history. So talk about that because it's fascinating. Because the thing you usually hear about the romantics was there was an age of reason and everybody was reasonable and then the romantics came and they reacted and they didn't like reason. They wanted to have a motion, which is utter nonsense. That's not what happened at all. You know, they lived in a time that was so much like our time that it is truly uncanny. I mean, the comparisons are everywhere. They lived in a time when science was changing everything. And so people were losing their faith. The structures of the world church and state were collapsing and being shown up as unable to take them into the new era. And just to be clear, you're talking about the latter part of the 18th century. So this is the lead up to the French Revolution. I mean, the level of chaos on the continent, just hard for us to imagine what that would have been

Have Wealthy Societies Historically Embraced 'Wokeism'?
"Of history, I'm curious, you mentioned the French Revolution. There has there been times ever in history. Where a very wealthy society decides to embrace this kind of woke ideology, something similar to woken. Does that make sense? I mean, there was a legitimate reason to get rid of the bourbons. And they looked at there were a lot of moderate people and they looked at the British system and they said, you can have a monarchy compatible with a constitutional republic. And that was eminently possible in 1787. And then you had these cycles of revolution where today's revolutionary would be tomorrow's sellout. You just want more robespierre was killed by the very people who used to support him, right? And basically got liquidated him and his brother in about 1400. And they applauded for ten minutes. The legend goes. They did. And then those cycles kept going and then you always are into it. So what does that mean for us then? Well, it always ends because chaos is unsustainable. So Napoleon ended it. Very brilliant fashion. He just said, I am the revolution, I'm going to make all the total power. I'm going to create a military academy that's going to be based on Napoleon. It's just like Stalin stopped it.

Eric and Phil Robertson Discuss Spirituality and Politics
"It folks, I'm talking to Phil Robertson, the duck commander, his new book is called uncanceled, finding meaning and peace in a culture of accusations, shame and condemnation. Phil, I think there many, many people who are not conservatives who are not Christians who nonetheless see that things have gotten so bad they don't know where to turn. They are themselves saying, I've never seen anything like this. This is madness. Anybody who has a sense of history thinks back to the French Revolution or to the Bolshevik revolution where anybody who tried to cozy up the power and to be one of the councillors themselves eventually had their head in the guillotine or were sent to the deaf kid to the gulag. This is a pattern that's gone over and over through history. It does not work. It's building your house on sand and I think a lot of people who, as I said, are not overly conservative or Christian, nonetheless, they're looking around thinking, this is crazy. How do we get out of this? Call of ticks, flows down the hill down the hill and you say, from culture, it produces culture produces the politicians. This is not a political fix. This is a spiritual fix. I would tell the city that out there love is patient, so be patient as you reach out to your neighbor. Love is kind. Love does not envy love does not boast. Love is not proud, love is not rude, love is not self seeking, that check this out. I would say this to the saved over the last love is not easily angered and love check this out.

Historian William Federer Takes a Look Back at Various Forms of Government
"I'm talking to our friend Bill Federer with American minute dot com. Bill, you just gave us the four stages that went to the French through the French Revolution and onward. So please maybe reprise that. So we can track. Right. So we have the pilgrim covenant form of government. Think of it as a triangle. You get rights and blessings from God and you voluntarily take care of your neighbor because you're accountable to God. In the century after the pilgrims, covenant turned into social contract with a distant God. This comes out of the scientific revolution where you have Isaac Newton discovering laws of gravity. Kepler discovering laws of planetary motion, Robert Boyle discovering laws of pressure. And so some theologians said, well, gee, maybe God made everything with laws, and like a guy winds up a clock and said that on the shelf, everything's following these rules, these gears. But if God's there, he's distant. He's far removed. The ultimate of this is spinoza's, you know, that God's an impersonal force in the universe and so forth. And so the century after this age of enlightenment, distant God, you have the French Revolution. And it's a social contract with no God. You get your rights from the group, you're accountable to the group. And then in this, one of the writers of the French Revolution was Jean Jacques Rousseau. And he said, if the state says to an individual, it's expedient for the state that you should die. That individual on a die, because it's like there's a gift made by the generosity of the state. It's like, okay, there's some serious consequences to getting rid of this God. You don't have any rights other than what the state grants you. And what the state give us, the state can take it the way. Well, the century after the French Revolution is where you have Hegel and Karl Marx and you have

William Federer Shares the Story of Yale's 8th President Timothy Dwight
"Tell us if you would the story of Timothy Dwight. Right. So the setting is we have a revolution and then France has a revolution. And our revolution was preceded by a great awakening revival. France's revolution was preceded by Voltaire, who mocked Christianity and had a very skeptical viewpoint and undermined morals. And so as a result, the French Revolution became very bloody. And so Timothy Dwight was the president of Yale during this time, and he wrote comments on the difference between our revolution and the French Revolution. In my post on Timothy, why did I go through a little history? Yale, it was founded in 1701. There were ten congregational ministers who sort of felt like Harvard was getting to religious and stodgy. They actually used a term called old lights versus the new lights. And the old life were the religiously strict orthodox, the guys that had their positions and they looked down upon emotional preachers like George whitfield and so forth. The university was originally called the Connecticut collegiate school at killingworth milford, but then they moved to 1716 to New Haven, Connecticut. So the college group, as a result of reverend Jeremiah drummer and he defended the colonial charters against overreaching British Parliament. So the Chargers were given, then you'd have different kings that would want to take away the old charter and consolidated and he would defend them. He secured 700 books for the college's library and solicited donations from many individuals, including the English playwright, Richard Steele, the scientist, Sir Isaac Newton, and he also got contributions from a merchant named elihu

"french revolution" Discussed on Lex Fridman Podcast
"I'm defining conservatism the way that Burke does. Look, this is a very simple observation. Burke thinks when you open Burke and you actually read him, he starts naming all of these people who he's defending. And it's bizarre. I'm sorry, it's just intellectual sloppiness for people to be publishing books called Burke, the first conservative, the founding conservative. I mean, this is nonstop. It's a view that says Burke reacts to the French Revolution. So conservatism has no prior tradition. It's just reacting to the French Revolution. And this is just absurd. It has a quick question. Are there any conservatives that are embracing of revolutions? So are they ultimately against the concept of revolution? Yes, Burke himself embraces the Polish revolution, which takes place almost exactly at the same time as the French Revolution. And the argument is really interesting because there's a common mistake is assuming that Burke and conservative thinkers are always in favor of slow change. I think that's also just factually mistaken. Burke is against the French Revolution because he thinks that there are actually tried and true things that work, things that work for human flourishing and freedom included as a very important part of human flourishing. He like many others takes the. English constitution to be a model of something that works. So it has a king. It has various other things that maybe your own will say well that's a mistake. But still, for centuries, it's the leader in many things that I think we can easily agree. Our human flourishing. And Burke says, look, what's wrong with the French Revolution? What's wrong with the French Revolution is that they have a system that has all sorts of problems, but they could be repairing it. And instead what they're doing by overthrowing everything is they're moving away from what we know is good for human beings. Then he looks at the Polish revolution. And he says, the polls do the opposite. The polls have a non functioning traditional constitution. It's too democratic. It's impossible to get to raise armies and to defend the country because of the fact that every noble man has a veto. So the Polish revolution moves in the direction of the British constitution. They repair their constitution through a quick, rapid revolution, they install a king along the model that looks a lot like Britain and Burke supports. This is a good revolution..

Edmund Burke and the Birth of Traditional Conservatism
"Burke, the father of western conservatism. Wrote a great book reflections on the French Revolution. Famously said that a properly ordered society has a three tied knot. It's a compact. So social contract theorists range from Jean Jacques Rousseau to John Locke, to Thomas Hobbes, and Edmund Burke is never looped into a social contract theorist, but he did make a very significant contribution into what he believed a moral society would have as their north star. What he thought of what a north society a moral society should have as their central operating thesis, which is a three type not. A look at the sacrifices in the history and the culture and the tradition that came before you. A focus on the immediate and what we're living through, but most importantly, the generation that is yet to be born and the country we're trying to pass down. That is literally where we get the word conservative from. When we are recklessly spending trillions of dollars we don't have, what are we conserving exactly? Now I know at times for whatever reason, this is no longer the sexiest story to talk about on the right. It seems as if we are now in the era of big deficits and debt and that we just kind of allow ourselves to be hypnotized by the capital flow of cheap money.

The interpretation is delicate Let me just lay out the evidence and then so okay. So about half the chronicles. They're basically twelve chronicles on that fall into five or six and a half of them. Say that Jacques raped women Half of them don't now than did judicial sources which. I don't know there about two hundred letters of pardon and then some court cases for people involved in the revolt and suppression there are only two cases search of a crime that might be that might be rape in those That debt is on Where the shock are implicated though. No individual woman is said to have been raped by the shock. The one individual we can say was raped during this was actually raped in the The noble suppression.

But maybe that means that hasn't hasn't been didn't rape noblewomen. We know that nobleman daybreak peasant women. That's easy to find both in war but also you know in pastoral literature endorsed by you know. Andreas the the thing that makes me a little bit.

"Noblemen are captured Before guillaume cow. Or another of this sort of higher-ups Inish dockery and and judged seems normally the charges treason which is quite a common word to throw around in the middle of the fourteenth century. were why is the and i can come up with some guesses but yeah i mean i think it's because that's it's sort of the worst thing in eat is actually the worst thing you can do. You think about dante's circles of hell who are the very worst. The very worst of the betrayers of patriots rights basically commuters trees the closest to satan in the lake of ice the betrayers of the people who are also in the course of the three archetypes are the brutus cassius and judas scary at being chewed by the three heads of satan. So yeah so. Yeah i think that treason is just the kind of the worst one you can do. This is a moment in which You know is edward a trader charles. Navarro trailer the edward of england. Tra- this is a moment Also our gaskins traders to the king. I mean this is the moment where loyalties are are completely up for grabs in a way. That's often very hard for people race after nationalism when we read the sources we. It's really hard to understand. You know who's loyal to who and so when it to find that that treason's the most common charge it's certainly the worst thing it really a further Further compounds the difficulty of reading And understanding these. And i think what they're really betraying is there. There's said to betrayed the people of the country set on. What does that mean. Sarah words. I don't know because it's not really a i'm as much more about royal politics than it is about Lordship unlike the The english revolt of thirteen. Eighty one. you don't get documents destroy you. Don't get No have three three cases in which documents were destroyed in every case they are not being destroyed by the people of of the board destroyed by outside. Outsiders come to the village So the the jockeys about rural politics it's about on the social status of mobility and the kind of perks that come with nobility that common inc including perks of taxation. So i think it's about betraying community interest And i think it's it's not only the lack of national identities although claiming to be a good frenchmen is something that you get these time and you get jack people claiming to be good for But it's really the.

"I have to say charles of navarre is as he says at one. Point descended from the old hippie shen monarchy the old dynasty friends both on his mother's and his father's side so he's claim to the french throne is actually may be better than that of king edward of england who is also descended from the competions This is his claim on the french throne and why we have the hundred years war right. He's claiming that he should be king of france. So charles of navarre is also He's king of navarre. Because the completion monarchy of france was briefly also briefly also the hounds the kingdom of navarre in northern stay which is another story which god via the county of sham on the very charles. He's king of davar. He's a sovereign king in his writing. Okay and that's really important to remember you know. He is pursuing his own politics and he has every right to do that. He is also has major holdings in normandy. So he's also the count of of and he would really like his ancestral holdings in shunyi back and so the fall. His father john There steve how have been very unfair to the navarino family in their in their perception for actually for generations at this point. So what charles really wants. And this is very similar to what king edward the third of england wants. She wants the french crown really to respect his rights in france he wants his lands. His land rights respected he. He wants land in the money. That's been promised him. you know. Just as edward the third way really interested is gascony in full serenity. Right britt vis this claim to the french crown is really nice piece of leverage Because king john the phone. The whole vowel monarchy. They do have a bit of illegitimacy problem in that they aren't the old competions ministy. So charles of navarre so he charles of nor is on charles of navarre side is. He is on his own son. So that means takes from the perception of other people. He takes different sides right so at sometimes. He's again well. How does from the peasants perspective from jacques on homes perspective. Where shows navarre during this during this sort of the build up too late may of thirteen and then afterwards yeah okay well. Charles of navarre is allied with eighteen marsalis and Particularly with rebecca coke in paris And he is on the. He supports them with soldiers and he supports them with his own prestige. End up with his charm. The thing about charleston bars very charming guy. So he's he's helping them to push the dough phone to do what. The reform party wants.

"What's going on. And do you know any reason why these marshals should have been killed is is is this a just thing and he says well actually maybe not and at that point at that. Point it really. The game is on He fortifies a couple of castles. That mean that on the river supply lines to paris are imperilled The parisians start defensive measures. So it's really at that point where you get the sense. There's no turning back now so In what i said in the introduction and The revolt seems more limited. Than i thought. It's it's it's it's western normandy. It's the northern. He'll defrost not the south sudden you difference and then piscotty and chumpon ja Staying for anyone who's mapra one. You can see the same battlefields. The same places. It's like you know they're they're layers in all european history. The same things happened in the same place Why not the south of the ildefonso. Why these places. I was struck by the serve geographic specific. Okay well the reason. The revolt starts where it does which is a village A bit north of paris called sunday desa won't is because that's a crossing place on the was river and this is there are three rivers supply. Paris this is the one that phone hasn't blocked so it starts there probably in a in an effort to keep the was flowing and spreads outward from there Hartley hartley as a diversionary tactic to move the dough. Foams troops which have been massing southeast of paris to the northeast to the to the north west partly because that s- where they're actually hasn't been a lot of military violence and in the past we used to think zachary was a reaction to military violence mama sort of convulsive reaction to a hatred for minute arms and being pillaged will actually if you look at where the soldiers were is exactly. What the shocker. Where the soldiers worked is exactly where the shocker is. It also has to do with the greater political organization of that part of france. It's very urbanized. Area is absolutely laced with roads. And so there's there's a lot more urban rural communication possible there. it's much more commercialized It's also close to flanders where this tradition for volt. So there's a lot there. There isn't effort in early. June to get the hasn't south of paris to rise and i think that is an Revived the jacques. Ary but it doesn't really so much get off the ground much. Let's get to that in a second but you have a chapter called very simply massacre to movement. So the massacre is that the marshalls. So there's a couple of things and you deal with the set many places in the book Is this really simply are peasants rebellion. It seems to be you're describing now town. Rebellions of towns in which presents are also involved a So how does this go. How does it become a movement..

"Welcome to my podcast. History accounts and this is a new season. The topic or the subject of this new season would be a study on the chinese cultural revolution and the french revolution. And i intend this episode to be the introductory episode to anyone with a passion for history. The french revolution is one of those seminal watershed events the doorway from pre modern times to modern times. I have long been captivated by it and made it a priority for me to learn more about the chinese culture revolution on the other hand isn't event largely neglected by comparison to the french revolution. I want to change that. Both revolutions head enormous impact on those nations and the entire world. I thought it would be cool and interesting to tell the stories of these two revolutions side by side or as parallel studies. I will in this podcast series. Tell the story of both revolutions each synchronized in time to the other. This is easy because each revolution lasted more or less ten years. Now i know there are good arguments out there that the revolutions lasted for different amount of years than the ten. I'm using. But i do not believe i'm going out on a limb with using ten years so you can assume unless it is clear otherwise when i am talking about events the events in each revolution happened more or less at the same span or timeline. This podcast will not be a comparison. I will talk about the two revolutions and refrain from making or pointing out similarities or differences between the two. I believe this is a neat way to talk about. The revolutions certainly a different perspective. And i hope entertaining. There's no particular reason i chose these two revolutions. I'm sure the same parallel method could be applied to any other two revolutions. You pick them what i think however that makes these two revolutions good candidates to study in this way is that they really were disconnected from each other by time by location by culture and by people. Don't speak french. And naturally i will have to use a lot of french names for things and people. I have tried to pronuncia correctly. But i'm sure it will leave a lot to be desired. Please forgive me. Also for the chinese culture revolution. I am lucky to have an eyewitness. My wife only a little girl at the time of the cultural revolution. She and her family in china when through the.

Was Lafayette Left out of the Cultural Spotlight? With Mike Duncan
"While i was preparing for our discussion today one thing that stood out to me is the sheer lack of movies or tv. Shows about or even including lafayette. If there's one thing we've pedia is good for its those lists where they show all the different cultural depictions from people and for lafayette. It has a whopping twenty four listings of movies. Tv shows or even songs that depict him. Why do you think he's been left out of the cultural spotlight. I went through the same thing that you did. Because i knew i was going to be coming on to do this. And talking about lafayette. You know in tv and movies and was like i don't actually remember him showing up that much I you know. I've i've seen him pop a few times. I think part of it is just like in the anglophone world like an english speaking world. there haven't been that many depictions even of just like the french revolution generally right and once lafayette leaves. The american revolution goes back to france. Most of his life and adventures are set in france and set against the backdrop of the french revolution. Which sure there have been some movies about that but it has never been like a recurring major source of movies and tv shows for the english. Speaking world i mean it's not like a western or even like pirate movies. And so if you're gonna if you're gonna get lafayette you're going to get him as a teenager in the american revolution and then even when you sort of like hone. In on the american revolution there are stories that are adjacent to events in the american revolutionary war of independence. But that even those are not exactly why a vibrant genre that keeps recurring. It's not like we keep going back and turning up but there's not like a movie every single year about the american revolution so he's already kind of confined to a spot that the historical imagination doesn't go back to actually give like if we were doing a show about Let's say the industrial revolution in britain. There's historical fiction set in industrial revolution britain. Every four months right there's always going to be a show about that. And so he's already kind of in a bit of a in a bit of a box and then he himself is just adjacent enough to kind of everything whether it's john adams or whether it's thomas jefferson or whether it's Ben franklin or george washington that he's always going to be just a very hillary character

"The forenoon of the fourth of november last dr richard price in non-conforming minister of eminence preached at the dissenting meeting house of the old jewelry to his club or society. A very extraordinary miscellaneous sermon in which there are some good moral and religious sentiments and not. Ill expressed mixed up in a sort of porridge of various political opinions and reflections. But the revolution in france is the grand ingredient in the cauldron. I consider the address transmitted by the revolution society to the national assembly through earl stanhope as originating in the principles of the sermon and as a corollary from them it was moved by the preacher of that discourse it was passed by those who came wreaking from the effect of the sermon without any censure or qualification expressed or implied. If however any of the gentlemen concerned shall wish to separate the sermon from the resolution. They know how to acknowledge the one and to disavow the other. They may do it. I cannot for my part. I looked on that sermon as the public declaration of a man much connected with literary cabela's and intriguing philosophers with political theologians and theological politicians those at home and abroad. I know they set him up as a sort of oracle because with the best intentions in the world. He naturally philip sizes and chance. His prophetic song in exact unison with their designs. That sermon is in a strain. Which i believe has not been hurt in this kingdom in any of the pulpits which are tolerated or encouraged in it since the year. Sixteen forty eight when a predecessor of dr price. The reverend hugh peters made the vault of the king's own chapel at saint james ring with the honor and privilege of the saints who with the quote high praises of god in their mouths and a two edged sword in their hands were to execute judgment on the heathen and punishments upon the people to buy their kings with chains and their nobles with fetters of iron unquote from psalm. One forty nine. Few harangues from the pulpit. Except in the days of your league in france or in the days of our solemn league and covenant in england have ever less of the spirit of moderation than this lecture in the old jewelry supposing however that something like moderation were visible in this political sermon yet politics and the pulpit are terms that have little agreement no sound ought to be heard in the church but the healing voice of christian charity the cause of civil liberty and civil government gains as little as that of religion by this confusion of duties those who quit their proper character to assume what does not belong to them are for the greater part ignorant. Both of the character they leave and of the character they assume wholly unacquainted with the world in which they are so fond of meddling an inexperienced in all its affairs on which they pronounce with so much confidence they have nothing politics but the passions they excite surely. The church is a place where one day's truce ought to be allowed to the dissensions and animosities of mankind. This pulpit style revived after so long. Discontinuance had to me the era of novelty in other novelty. Not wholly without danger. I do not charge this danger..

All these in their way are good things to and without them. Liberty is not a benefit whilst it lasts and is not likely to continue long. The effect of liberty to individuals is that they may do what they please. We ought to see what it will please them to do before. We risk congratulations which may be soon turned into complaints. Prudence would dictate this in the case of separate insulated private men but liberty when men act in bodies is power considerate people before they declare themselves will observe the use which is made of power in particularly of so trying a thing as new power in new persons of whose principles tempers and dispositions.

"To S O s radio. I'm your hosts Craig Burkes and When did you last have been talking about what influenced Marx thinking when he produced his mess of a theory, And I stated that first marks was an atheist. This was essential and marks thinking you can't have a God. Because if you have a God and we as humans are made in the image of God and mankind, humanity has intrinsic value that was the opposite of Marxist thinking. And so, therefore his atheism was a huge influence. The second thing I brought up was the fact that Marks decided to reject the American Revolution and chose the French revolution as his model for what on a utopia could be. But the problem is a French revolution was a failed revolution that that somehow escaped his mind. And it led that is the French revolution led to countless deaths and the spiralling of European society into chaos and the kite. The chaos did and there From the ash heap of the French revolution came a monster, a self declared emperor who waged war from Africa to Russia. And you know who I'm referring to Napoleon. Which further helped disintegrate European society until he was finally stopped. So why did Marx basis theories on the French Revolution will very simple, even though it failed, even though it was doomed from the very beginning. The French revolution, unlike the American Revolution was centered on, man. Now, do I remember the French revolutions? Three marks fraternity liberty in a galette A remember those Fraternity, brotherhood, Liberty, Liberty and legality, equality. When I read those three major marks of the French revolution. Do you notice something missing? What's missing. Is there any mention of God? And oh, absolutely not. Why? Why is God not brought up in the concept of these marks of the French Revolution? Because the French revolution was a humanistic revolution. It was a revolution of men and listen carefully. It was a society designed To re make man You may not know this, but during the French revolution, there was the desire to change the calendar. Did you know that? That was just one of the many things that the French revolution wanted to disintegrate. All Christian influence was to be eliminated. Well, that felt perfectly fine for marks. And so even though it failed marks grabbed onto it like a beyond, honey. You see the American revolution was theistic. And Marx had no interest in a society that upheld faith. He didn't have interests in a society that upheld the Bible and the sovereignty of God in the affairs of men. So Marx, as I just said, chose that humanistic endeavour that failed so terribly and cost the lives of countless people. That was the second influence. First. He was an atheist. Second till Studied and used the French revolution as his model for the perfect society and then third, listening carefully. The third influence came from a philosopher named I'm gonna Give you his full name now, George, will him Frederick Hagel. Now we know him Just as Hagel. We don't need a Well, you start breath, saying anything more than just that. But Frederick Hagel Is the man who influence him more than any other now without getting too deep. Let me just say this that as I talk about this, I want to give credit to a particular professors names Dr James Lindsay for his scholarly work in this area in regards to Hagel's influence of Marxism and in critical race theory. Is also the author. Of a book called Cynical Theories. I recommend that book very highly going to understand a critical race theory. There are two books that I recommend highly cynical theories by Dr James Lindsay and then voted bark. Um Wrote a book called Fault Lines. These are recent books and they are essential reading on this subject. So as I talk about this, I want to give a little credit to James Lindsay for his work on this Now What I need to tell you is that Hagel was the father of the concept called the Dialectic. Remember, I talked about Hagel. Being said that the facts behind long when his students said to him that the facts don't fit his dialectic. Oh, you may wonder what in the world does that mean? Well, the dialectic is simply this. It's the collision of opposites, the collision of opposites. So in Hagel's mine, there were two opposing forces in life as an example. Let's say you have an idea and ideas, an idea force And what you do is to interface an idea with its opposite the contradiction to the idea. And we do you sort of smashed these ideas together now the plan in truth Putting these two ideas together, the one idea and the idea that's the opposite of the idea. Think of the terms oil and water. You take oil and water and just put it together. And the idea of that is to Two. Rid to destroy any peripheral elements of its essence boy at the same time, keeping some of its essence and tact. I want you try to do is you discover a path or maybe an avenue in which at one moment you have discarded the values of the idea, But in doing so, you've kept the essence own that idea, and you've risen to another plane. Now Hagel uses the term Thesis. And then antithesis as these two opposing forces. Thesis is one force antithesis is another. They hit each other, like a football game, and they tackle each other and what comes out of that collision? Is synthesis. Now you may be wondering, why am I talking about all this? Because what you need to know is that in Marxism and in critical race theory You will never. You cannot have these ideas exist outside of the phrase of conflict. You must always have conflict. Have you ever noticed? That with critical race theory or with leftist causes. There's always that tension, always that conflict and, of course with most leftists. I don't have a sense of humor. And so because of it, you also have that problem too. Well, this all comes from Galen philosophy. It's all part of this, these two opposing forces fighting against each other. So you have a synthesis that comes out of it. So you take things are not compatible. Take things are opposite. I use oil and water is an option or idea And what you do is you put them together and you create something new. Now, in Hagel's mind this his ID. He reduced these two ideas who forces into two things being and nothing. Could you get more opposite than that? Probably not being and nothing. And when he smashes them together. What does he get? He gets becoming So something isn't but become so example in your life and in my life, we are not what we are. We are what we became. And Hagel brings us to God. God isn't all existent. Uncaught caused eternal Oh, no, no. In Hagel's mind, God is evolving God is becoming And then what? Haggled? It just took the idea of God and transplanted it to society. Society isn't society is becoming and is growing. What happens is Everything moves in cycles of conflict, conflict conflict, never ending conflict, and what's happening is you're refining your perfecting you keep moving through perfecting and perfecting and perfecting until finally, utopia comes and this.
