Very grim, but well worth watching.
That was a result of a fit of outrage over how often I hear people glorifying revolution. Nine times out of ten revolutions bring nothing but death, suffering and worse oppression than ever existed before. I thought to make something to reflect that in a simple, blatant way.
Grim, indeed, but sadly true. My name is Vendéen, simple French peasants if there ever were any. Did the French Revolution do us any good? No, it drowned us in the Loire.Never forget that the red in their flags means blood--our blood.
Then you have a better reason than most to understand and to be justly proud. There are few events, in my mind, in the entirety of history so noble, pure and heroic as the rising in the Vendee. Their staunch loyalty, their courage, their understanding of the relationship between monarchy and the divine, their willing sacrifice was at the same time inspiring, tragic and beautiful.
Have you considered sending a link for this impressive video to the Australian Monarchist League? (www.monarchist.org.au) Might be worthwhile.
No, it hadn't occurred to me (I'm not particularly impressed with myself) but there are several Australians that I know of who read this blog and anyone can send anyone whatever link they like. If anything I do can help the monarchist cause in any country I would be only too thrilled about it.
Sobering, powerful, and as far as I'm concerned, irrefutable. Thanks for this.
Thanks for checking in.
