Revolutions have this odd hold on our minds, they are romanticised in film and novel, their instigators proclaim they fight for ‘freedom’, or ‘liberty’ or ‘independence’!
The reality is that violence, bloodshed and unlimited greed are the results! Those United States did not begin their existence in some sort of nirvana in 1776, a small group of heavily indebted, petty aristocrats decided to use the issue of the ‘Intolerable Acts’ as an excuse to rebel against their rightful King, they exaggerated the weight of the taxes that amounted to less then 1% of the GDP of the colonies, they whipped up anti-Catholic bigotry when they refereed to the decent treatment of the French colonists in Quebec by the Crown. They whipped up more bigotry and genocidal zeal when they objected to the the Proclamation line which had been set, so as to protect the Indians from unorganised and unlawful land grabs!
Fully one third of the population supported the Crown, they were expelled, massacred, harassed, robbed, humiliated and ‘cleansed’ from certain areas, the rebel minority managed to tough out the long drawn out war and only achieved their independence as a result of French and Spanish intervention on their side.
In the aftermath of American Independence in 1783, loyalists to the Crown were systematically excluded from the ‘new order’, tens of thousands left for Canada or other parts of the Empire, in the early years of the new republic, they did not do this as some sort of ‘lifestyle change’, they did this because of fears for their lives or property!
The new republic then went and started to tax their people heavier then the Crown had ever tired to! They mercilessly put down the Whiskey rebellion
, how ironic is that, some treasonous rebels put down some other rebels because they rebel against the rebels!
This new republic then applies the same murderous policy it had to ‘Tories’ to the Indians and begins to appropriate their lands, exterminate it’s people and ethnically cleanse the lands east of the Mississippi.
It is not a coincidence that the Indians fought with the British in the war of 1812!
The French Revolution began peacefully, when the States General, proclaimed itself the National Assembly, but the evil and power hungry men of the Jacobins and the Girondistes wanted more, they wanted more power, they were not satisfied with reform, they wanted revolution, and that is what they got!
When they murdered their King, Louis XVI, they unleashed a storm that would not only end the lives of millions, they unleashed something that can only be described as satanic into the world, this appetite for bloody revolution, this template, this inspiration to evil and wicked men who desire power over all things!
The Terror, is aptly named, it haunts us to this day! The direct result of this revolution was Napoleon and his unbridled lust for domination, which led to the devastation of the wars that continued up to 1815.
The French Revolution inspired the ideologies of hate and envy that were eventually distilled by Karl Marx in his Communist Manifesto and Das Kapital, inspired by this atheistic utopianism, the Bolsheviks took advantage of the disaster that was the Great War and overthrew the Russian government, they were not content with power alone, they wanted to meld the minds of all their newly acquired subjects, the deposed Czar with his family posed a threat to the ligitimacy of their new government and it’s own Terror.
The Imperial family were murdered, what followed was hell on earth for Russia and it’s people for nigh on 80 long miserable, terrifying years!
The Russian example gave rise to Hitler and Mao and Pol Pot! All of them inspired by the communist take over, all inspired by the Jacobins and the Bolsheviks! All inspired in part by the Rebels in America!
Revolution is an evil, wicked thing, planned and executed by atheistic, God haters. People who worship man above all things, those who lack humility or decency or even simple human kindness. Loyalty, duty, sacrifice, this is what the opponents of these revolutions displayed, this is their reward as they are now mostly forgotten.
The loyal subject of King George, who lost all his property, who was tarred and feathered, beaten in front of his family!
The loyal subject of King Louis, Who was hunted down in the forests of the Vendee, who was tortured and murdered, who’s family was scattered and lost!
the loyal subject of Czar Nicholas, who was brutalised and butchered, his family left to starve, and if he had any descendants, they would have lived in fear for generations!
these are the people who suffer at the hands of these pompous, overfed, over important, ignorant, evil men, who declare with such arrogance that they represent the people that they harm!
It is not these evil men who represent the peasants and the lowly, it is the King, Le Roi, the Czar who represent these men and are the only ones capable of doing so!
Revolutions are evil, tens of millions, perhaps even hundreds of millions have lost their lives for the ambitions of republicans!
Yet nothing can change the reality that we are still enchanted by the Kings of old, republics are grey and lifeless, they speak to our heads not our hearts, only a King can speak to both!
