I also enjoy these guys and their random thoughts, but they do a pretty good job of summarizing the revolution.
After watching the three parts, what points did you take away from their "lecture"?
Whose revolution is it? Peasants or Bourgeoisie?

Do we notice a pattern in our revolutions?
The quote about the French Revolution by former Chinese president Xiaoming Lai and the impact of the French Revolution, that it is too soon to tell what the impact will be, what are your thoughts on this? Is it the case?
