[Xmca-l] Re: Don't do it



>From my personal web page, Ulvi:

*Apropos Thoughts on Revolutions and Their Causes*

(From C. Dickens, *A Tale of Two Cities*, Ch 15)

Along the Paris streets, the death carts rumble, hollow and harsh.

Six tumbrels carry the day's wine to La Guillotine. All the devouring and
insatiate monsters imagined since imagination could record itself, are
fused in the one realization, Guillotine. And yet there is not in France,
with its rich variety of soil and climate, a blade, a leaf, a root, a
sprig, a peppercorn, which will grow to maturity under conditions more
certain than those that have produced this horror. Crush human humanity out
of shape once more, under similar hammers, and it will twist itself into
the same tortured forms. Sow the same seed of rapacious license and
oppression over again, and it will surely yield the same fruit, according
to its kind.

It is the nature of the fruits sewn by the French Revolution that give
pause for thought. And perhaps accounts for the lack of reply to your
articulately formulated note.
