The French Origins of American Nationalism. – B.R.

It is a pretty good read and addresses many of the issues of difference between the French and American Revolution. However, I feel it left out an important point that is probably more core to each revolution than any other ideal. By the 1700s France, in general, was moving away from traditional faith and towards more humanistic ideals. This lack of absolute truth led to a sense of relativity that allowed incredible atrocities to take place in the name of Justice. Even the revolution itself devolved into a sadistic machine, out to extract vengeance for every perceived wrong. With no guiding ethics, there was no other option available to the revolution. The strongest ruled by might and whim. America, take note of what has happened in the past when there were no absolutes!
