A very interesting link thanks Ian, with solid info from historians who were far closer to the action than any could be today.
However, any perspective on the French Revolution is incomplete without a look at this work of Miles Mathis from 2016:
Best to read his piece on long Napoleon first which he links at the start
He puts his usual alternative view on this history, with his assertions about what was really happening in France at that time. It’s a familiar tale that, he has demonstrated with many articles over the years, is similar for ALL modern revolutions. He’s pretty well covered all of the big “revolutions”, at least as far back as the “Glorious Revolution” in England in 1688, and probably before.
This so called “Glorious” event was of course the key moment when Britain became an oligarchy. The oligarchs installed a Dutch Prince as the monarch and then proceeded, within 6 or 7 years, to create the Bank of England. The bank that the oligarchs of the UK owned for themselves into the 20thC. It is now supposed to be publicly owned, at least that is the official story. But how can we be certain, given we can never see the BoE accounts? We can’t….
Certainly the oligarchs also owned all the major trading corporations that Britain used to “trade” with over the whole the world, trade means more like “steal from” in this case I think. The East India company and the Hudson’s Bay company being good examples. These corporations reaped unbelievable wealth for the oligarchs who owned them.
sorry, thanks Weaver
Hi pete, I don’t think Weaver will mind. One other thing concerned me about the French revolution article, was the fact that the women were urging the men to fight. Then there’s this article.
Is it one of their standard approaches.
