Title: Discordia/Eris's role in the French Revolution?
Post by: ChaosAdvocate on September 08, 2015, 05:34:31 am
Do you think Discordia/Eris played a big role in the French Revolution, its upheaval and people in it like Maximilien Robiespierre? It would have been considered "mad" in those time's standards, and it was one of the first and only societies that literally implemented "terrorism" as a policy(called the "great terror"). The "great terror" started with Robespierre and it ended with him. The French Revolution was a very violent one and was an explosion of entropy, heaps of discord and the demolition of many tradition & order.

The French Revolution gave France its protest/riot-happy and government-defying culture which I wish only my country(Australia) has, coming from one of the most discord/chaos-deprived continents in the world. We have never had a single major armed rebellion at where I live in history, and many people here are sheep. Quite depressing. They do not care what the authority does as long as they do not interrupt their daily routines of food, tv, sport and etc. No matter how much power they take for themselves.

No, that was those bastard Jacobins.  They're kind of like us, only with silly hats.

and many people are sheep.

But not you and I.  We're special.  The only two conscious beings in the universe.

Not to mention Wales and Cornwall (on account that the Cornish aren't really people).

I really think the goths played a bigger role. It's obvious to see they took inspiration in their dress and use of the guillotine.

Cornishmen are actually the hornets of the primate world.  We exist only to spread misery.  This hypothesis is supported by the fact that we all hate each other, but we will always attack outsiders first.  Once the outsider is a lump of bruised and swollen tissue, we go back to cold, silent hatred of each other in our homes and pubs.

Eris reached its perihelion (the part of its orbit which is closest to the sun) between 1698 and 1699. So its possible that Eris' proximity to Earth planted the seeds of revolution and subsequent collapse of Bureaucracy almost a century later.
