Legacy of the French Revolution
Seeking to examine the mainstream interpretations of the French Revolution. The Marxian perspective suggests that it was an epic class struggle between the economic relationship of economic power of the Third Estate, Clergy, and Monarchy/Aristocracy. The the classical liberal/libertarian approach seem to be one that emphasizes more on the reformation political power which occurred, and the role of the 4th estate. It as well seems to question the merits of inherited power vs. legitimated power through a political process or Democracy. As well there exists analyses which combine both perspectives and uniquely address the devolution of power structures.

What we're about

This is a group for those in the Sacramento area who like to discuss politics and philosophy. We have all had different experiences in life, but we always find that political issues are very relevant to our lives and we want to discuss these issues with others. These days, political discussions are sometimes constructive, but unfortunately they often become hostile when people with differing views are in the same room. It is important for us all to hear views other than our own from time to time, and there has to be a way to have honest, thoughtful discussions on issues important to our lives while keeping the discussion calm and polite. In this discussion group, we try to avoid being overly biased when presenting opinions and we will also work to avoid use of fallacies in making points. We expect that there will be differences of opinion, but as long as we keep a philosophical mindset these discussions should not descend into hostility. Many of us also like to discuss philosophical topics and we will have time for this as well and we will probably find that most philosophical concepts have real-world applications, including political. So this discussion group will hover between these two subjects, and we might even at times focus on other subjects as well.
