3. As no doubt watching many French nobility and intellectuals do the chicken dance
was pleasing to them, but the hate consumed them and in their blood-lust, they became easily duped by a megalomaniac.

4. You know many enthusiasts for the guillotine ended up there themselves, yes?

Orgies of destruction have a way of getting out of hand, as shown by the history of quite a few countries.

7. Sounds like...
...you have enough hate and anger for the rest of us.

Violent insurrection is not on my wish list - a LOT of people would be hurt\killed in the mayhem.

8. Sadly, when it's time for mf's to get up against the wall, a lot of people are surprised to find out
that they're the motherfuckers themselves. Kinda like how every libertarian thinks he'll be the one left on top.

blood hungry mob hate, the best kind of hate there is. After Louis & Marie got their heads lopped off, there was nothing but libert fraternit et egalit for all...except when Robespierre went bat shit crazy with power...and then Napoleon came around...and went bat shit crazy with power...then the monarchy was restored and the clock was turned back to the old fashioned bat shit crazy as opposed to revolutionary bat shit crazy. Let's see, then the Republic was finally restored by Louis Napoleon...who then declared himself emperor and went bat shit crazy with power...


So, I guess you could say that hate and anger accomplished a whole lot in France...however, as to who benefited directly, I think the people are the last in line on that question.

10. I dunno -- I would never say it.
As much as I might hate to admit it. ;-)
