Happy Bastille Day!

No doubt the Ancien Régime needed democratization. Nevertheless one may feel a little regret at the de-Capet-ations and the Reign of Terror (one thinks for example, of the Dialogues des Carmelites) and consider the militant anti-clericalism of the republics a bit unfortunate. In other words, this outsider has the feeling that France overcorrected, and that the effects are felt even today in prohibitions on muslim garb in schools.

At any rate, Vive la France!
