Which Enlightenment?
« on: January 12, 2020, 11:48:12 AM »
French - later 18th century or British - earlier 18th century?



All the good parts are British, all the bad parts are French.

Voltaire, Rousseau and Robespierre were psychotics.  The British philosophers were "Common Sense" like that John Locke, Adam Smith and Thomas Paine.  The damage of the French Revolution continues ... see Yellow Vests and giant union strikes.

Last week: Napoleon was great.
This week: Napoleon was a mass murderer.

Exactly.  When you are on the winning side, it is great.  But Waterloo sucks.

The outcome of the French Revolution was military dictatorship followed by return to monarchy.  The Romanovs may be replace Commissar Putin ;-)  Putin just had his whole government resign (so unlike Trump) ... so he can change the Russian constitution at will.

It was a note of how untrustworthy PragerU is.

How untrustworthy are people still recovering from hangovers from Woodstock?

Always attack the messenger.  Sure fire way to lose.

If Trump said 2+2=4 then Dems know that arithmetic is wrong ;-)

Fact is, English Enlightenment = good.  French Enlightenment = bad.  Free to disagree.  Got some oil for your guillotine, Francois?

When you come on a cloud, in the sky, from San Francisco ... as 4th horseman of the apocalypse?  No truth at all, anywhere ... say nihilists.

You are like every human being ... you want to be G-d.  Or at least be in charge of all the drug production.

Correct ... if it backs Left narrative ... true ;-)

As I pointed out years ago, logic as usually used, is a red herring.  People rationalize (aka are demented).

Honestly, if PragerU said the sky was blue on a clear day, I'd be sure to check, just to be sure they weren't lying.

Don't be gullible, is what you should be taking from that. PragerU is an obvious political arm of Dennis Prager, whose only goal is to push his political narrative.

Every human is political.  Everyone pushes their narrative.  So?

I wouldn't post just anything from PragerU.

Do you love Voltaire, Rousseau and Robespierre and other great examples of French Enlightenment or not?  That is the topic, not the messenger.
