The French Revolution

“It is, for that matter, self-evident that if one community decides in one fashion, another, also sovereign, in the opposite fashion, both cannot be right. Reasoning men have also protested, and justly, against the conception that what a majority in numbers, or even (what is more compelling still) a unanimity of decision in a community may order, may not only be wrong but may be something which that community has no authority to order since, though it possesses a civil and temporal authority, it acts against that ultimate authority which is its own consciousness of right. Men may and do justly protest against the doctrine that a community is incapable of doing deliberate evil; it is as capable of such an action as is an individual. But men nowhere do or can deny that the community acting as it thinks right is ultimately sovereign: there is no alternative to so plain a truth.” - Hilaire Belloc (6 hr 59 min)

Ray Clare is a great reader!

(5 Sterne)

clear great enunciatiom and excellent commentary on french revolution

Good read

(4 Sterne)

Intriguing history of the French Revolution, with some interesting exploration of its military and religious dimensions. Good reader - would have been better to learn how to pronounce some French cities like “Lyons” or “Marseilles.” Minor issue. Thanks for bringing this inspired history alive.

Superb Historical Panorama

(5 Sterne)

Excellent overview with military and Catholic angles well covered.

Excellent analysis

(5 Sterne)

A sound, thoughtful, and nuanced analysis of the French Revolution.

the author seems to ramble on a few irrelevant topics
