Aug 29, 2022

Stella joins Breht to discuss (and put a unique communist spin) on the great French Revolution!

Together, they discuss the conditions that led to the revolution, the major events and figures of the Revolution, the importance of mass mobilization for any authentic revolution, the so-called Reign of Terror, Maximilien Robespierre, Jean-Paul Marat, the Guillotine, the role of women, Babeuf and the Conspiracy of Equals, the Thermidorian Reaction and the end of the Revolution, the response to the Rev by the rest of monarchical Europe, and why communists today should value this bourgeois revolution and even see it as a part of our egalitarian and revolutionary tradition!
Clips included in this episode are from TDC - The World History Documentaries 'The French Revolution':
Outro music "The Guillotine" by The Coup
