    Here is the not entirely unfavourable review of the English translation of Kropotkin’s book on the French Revolution when it was published in 1910 that appeared in the Socialist Standard of the time.

    Yes. Which is why someone who had an understanding of the role of private property and with hopes that humankind would one day emerge to a better state of being, would not have put their hopes in any of the parties urging bloodshed.

    Such an eye-witness at the time (and De Sade comes closest) would, like Sade, have advised a British-style bicameral constitutional monarchy, sparing most of those lives lost (most of whom were the poor) during the Jacobinist carnage.
