A Second American Revolution? #2

A Second American Revolution? #II

I am not a true scholar of the French Revolution. However, I have read several authoritative accounts and believe that I am seeing at least some of the converging factors in that revolution, that we are now witnessing in America.

I cannot help but fear for the future of America if its current radical sociocultural conflicts and upheavals do not abate.

The French Revolution and its bloody Reign of Terror eventually resolved into the Napoleonic Era, a dictatorship, under Emperor Napoleon Bonaparte.  

Perhaps you will see some similar classes of events that are now threatening the stability of  the most successful national revolution in world history: The American Revolution.

The French Revolution started in 1787 and ended late in the 1790’s. The following are at least some of the stressors afflicting France prior to and during the its great revolution.

  1. It was of time of economic crisis.
  2. There was great conflict between political, social, and economic ideals and ideas.
  3.  New ideas and ideals, in conflict with the prevailing culture, were spread by the educated and educators.
  4. The rich were threatened with a loss of power and prestige.
  5. The French participation in the American revolution nearly bankrupted France.
  6. The population was heavily taxed.
  7. France was the most populated country in Europe.
  8. The 1788 crop failure came at after a period of continues population restlessness. 
  9. There was a great cattle disease.
  10. The population was suffering financial hardship and many were hungry.
  11. The Monarchy was no longer viewed as God-Ordained and was ineffective at solving Frances many growing problems.
  12. On July 14, 1789, anti-monarchists launched an attack on the Bastille, a fortress and prison. There were close to 1000 assailants and 100 of them were killed. Only seven prisoners were liberated.

As you may know as the revolution unfolded, it included a Reign of Terror in which between 17,000 to 40,000 people died by Guillotine or in prisons. This included many of the leaders of the Revolution. On January 21, 1793 King Louis XVI was sent to the Guillotine.  His wife, Marie Antoinette, was Guillotined nine months later.

I invite the reader to compare the list of cultural stressors that were potentially catalytic to the French-Revolution, to the ones that are now severely stressing the United States of America. 

We cannot predict the future, but there is great reason for alarm and high alert.

It is essential that citizens vote for America’s Constitutional Ideals with great diligence, intelligence and patriotism.

America’s future has never been very secure and it is now in great jeopardy.  

For more information on the French Revolution and it’s Reign of Terror, take time to read the following.

A Second American Revolution?

August 18, 2017

A Second American Revolution?

I was astonished when my 19-year-old Grandson said that he never had a high school course in American Government.

When I graduated high school in 1960, American Government was a required course for graduation!

Any society that fails to teach its own culture to its children is bound to fail of self-inflicted wounds.

This should be a self-evident truth (though in college, I was taught that there are so such things).

I decided to see if this failure to teach our children our own culture was a general trend in America. Sadly, and fearfully, it is!

If one assembles and evaluates the many anti-American events that have unfolded in America in recent history, it is hard not to perceive a terrifying “big picture”.

It is a picture of sustained and incremental attacks upon all components of Western Civilization everywhere in the world and now in America. Many of these attacks are coordinated by subversive socialist/communist political initiatives and radical Islam. Many appear also to come from our own elected and appointed “deep Government”, bent upon implementing radical liberal/socialist practices.

Perhaps such initiatives are not so coordinated as they appear. Some may think it is just a confluence of converging events.

Whatever is the case, the American Republic is now in grave danger of destruction and I fear that most citizens appear not to see this distinct possibility.

Therefore, the danger of our sociocultural demise increases exponentially.

There are a great many components to the forces of America’s destruction. I will attempt to identify many of them in my blogs to follow.

For now, understand that not teaching the true history, workings and values of our own culture to America’s children is nothing less than cultural euthanasia.

Please read the following.

Wake-Up America!

The Truth About Trump’s first 6 Months

The Truth About Trump’s first 6 Months

If you listen to the popular news (ABC, NBC, CNN, etc.) and the not-so-funny late night T.V. leftist “comedians”, you will conclude that Trump is a spectacular failure.

This is all pure leftist/socialist propaganda.

See the truth below.
