The Secret to Freedom

A French dude with a long name – let’s just call him Max, for now – espoused a secret that got him killed during the French Revolution. It is ironic that it caused him so much difficulty since in America whose revolution preceded his we embraced his secret. We will talk about the difference between the two revolutions in a minute, but first his secret. Max spoke eloquently and often about this secret at every opportunity he could, which eventually forced him to place his head in a guillotine because the political leadership in his country thought it too dangerous. During the 1790’s in France, this secret exposed a radical idea to the French populous on how to ensure their nascent freedom.
