Quote
"Since Saturday evening I have been eating tarts non-stop. Fate has decreed that my bed should be placed within the chamber that forms the patisserie and so I was very tempted to eat all night long. Luckily I reflected that I should master these passions and finally managed to fall asleep amidst all these seductive items."

— Maximilien Robespierre. (via osgood-schlatter)

(meanwhile in an alternate universe somewhere people are making angry films about the USSR to express their feelings on the French revolution)

I feel like Trotsky already set this up with his talk about a Soviet Thermidor.

So… The Moscow Trials happen like a decade early for no good reason. Stalin crowns himself general secretary. De-stalinization as a thinly veiled metaphor for the restoration. Trotsky stabs himself in the head with an ice pick.

I think someone should make a film about the French revolution that is very metaphorically and obliquely about how the director feels about about the USSR and has no relation to the actual French revolution and makes no sense when you know things about the period and have read even the most biased and angry source material.

Then we will come full circle.

Lucile watches the guy at the tribunal announce that she is suspected of having conspired to murder convention or whatever, and then just walks away as no one makes any attempt to stop her. 

Everyone in Parisian law enforcement going about their business without bothering to arrest her, ever.

Camille having the political knowledge of a 14-year-old raised in a cave.

Hébertists? What Hébertists?

Robespierre demanding that Fabre d’Eglantine be removed from the historical record of an event that he wasn’t actually a part of. Oh wait, maybe he was and Robespierre was just super successful.

What’s he even trying to prove though?

In that particular quote, that Fouquier had never gone to the CPS without being ordered to. Since he said so in his defense, it would have to be true for us to be able to assume that everything else in it is true as well.

In general, that Fouquier was a sweet little lamb who never did anything wrong ever.
