Looking around to see if the French have any interesting takes on their famous revolution. This book caused controversy
Bourgeois, centered around “equality”, sounds about right so far.
I can sense poststructuralism in the way they speak in this article, so there’s that layer too to keep in mind. Finding some French who twist those ideas in a rightward direction would be appreciated. I do that myself to some degree. “Muhaha”.
Out of the few things we’re taught about history in the US, the French Revolution is one of them, right, or is that just me?
After learning about the finer details of the American Revolution I expect anything to be possible with the French one.
Have you ever read an account of it from the aristocracy’s perspective? Lots of people know Burke, I’d like to find more recent work on the subject.
Thinking of this idea of hegemon-subhegemon again, and its relation to the Bank of ~England~
The French Revolution was the beginning of Anglo hegemony. Or that’s the surface at least.
I haven’t been able to do much study of England because obviously the “English internet” is the American internet and the English internet is on lockdown. Seriously, if you use only that you’re not even using the internet.
I haven’t seen a statement like the following about the American Revolution
This might be cool
I typed in “American revolution bank” on z-library and amazon though and only see one book, written by a former FRS board member, no thanks.
Well-funded books can be extremely convincing if you catch my drift, and do I want that hypnotism in my brain?
sigh This is from the preface
to Thomas Jefferson, to the poets and Transcendentalists–to Emerson, Hawthorne, and Thoreau–it was an objectionable instrument of industrialization, materialism, and immorality. As the 19th century progressed, the Hamiltonian view pretty well spread from top to bottom and in ways that would have surprised Mr Hamilton himself.
The finest minds of America, don’t listen to them. If only bankers listened to them, and used their power to propagate their ideas, wow. Mistah Hamilton, we like yor ideas, R faverit foundah. This won the Pulitzer Prize for History, yeah I’m not reading this.
In Hammond’s view, we need central banks to keep the economy on an even keel.
To what degree are these well-known prizes in our culture merely the way that the powers that be pat themselves on the back? “This is a prize for ME, not you.” Inflations of the egregore.
Anyway, back to the Frenchnet to see if they have any what they call liberté over there
This article takes a backward journey to uncover the sources of hostility and mistrust towards bankers and businessmen. The attacks against the world of finance were not exclusive to the Terror: on the contrary, an analysis of the debate around the proposal to create a national bank at the end of 1789 shows that a very negative view of bankers was already diffused well before the entry into the war of the country or the first speculations on the [currency used during the revolution]. More precisely, the attack launched against the bankers in 1789, although general and not directed against a particular banker, was more of a confrontation between two groups of bankers than of a priori hostility against all forms of institutional banking.
Initial suspicion that arises- who paid for the guillotines? If it’s anything like the USSR or the contemporary US, it was one elite eliminating another elite.
I’m probably not going to discover a simple answer. These were chaotic times and it looks like the French have devoted many volumes to it, which isn’t surprising. Clearly I want to know which interpretations they ban there, because that kind of says it all.
When I was looking into that Henri de Boulainvilliers yesterday I learned that Descartes was banned from the académie in 1675 – different times. I’m going to have to do a post on that! Mind body dualism is the devil, think of that in light of what they ban today. You know his idea that one has grounds to doubt everything because one could be deceived by an Evil Demon? You mean the synagogue? These galaxybrains can still be used in dangerous ways today.
Anyway, speaking of revolutions and their connection to capital
The origin of this modern British financial state is traditionally attributed to the Glorious Revolution of 1688, although more recent research find more distant causes.
Do you want to spend a few years to answer some of these questions brought up here? I’m just looking at preliminary speculations for now.
See a site that portrays the Marquis de Sade as edgy, give me a break.
Still, there are parallels to be drawn
I see pirate publishers as central and forgotten players in history… At the end of 17th century France, censorship is very strict. The State relies more and more on the monopoly of the Community of Booksellers and Printers of Paris: a corporation of Parisian publishers who served as the book police alongside the State inspectors and censors. However, during the 18th century, this control system is crumbling.
I’m looking for a “pirate publisher” this very moment in fact. And unfortunately “the perfect book” on the French Revolution is not going to fall out of the sky, and we have to put in some elbow-grease to locate it. Watch, I’ll discover that capital/shekel was behind the revolution-inciting banned books getting to the people.
After an irritating amount of digging, here we go- from 2019
What if we’re being tricked by an Evil Demon, Your Honor?
Something funny about this
“Amazon is subject to French law”, warns Me Steve Outmezguine, lawyer specializing in digital law.
Look at this from a few days ago honk honk
Everyone forgot all about the murderous riots that preceded the Capitol one, strange strange.
Looks like someone named Alain Soral is a French Platonov with a publishing house.
He reminds me of that banned Greek too, he has a book on Socrates- Socrate in Saint-Tropez. “Not a good look.” Here’s a list of some French thoughtcriminals.
Yess I might have found what I was looking for
