Nesta Webster (1919) The French Revolution; a Study in Democracy
"Reform and revolution were two totally distinct movements, and not only distinct but directly opposed to each other."
"The French Revolution is no dead event ... the anarchist Prince Kropotkin wrote in 1908, “is that it was the source and origin of all the present communist, anarchist, and socialist conceptions.”
“As to a real history of the French Revolution,” Lord Cromer wrote to me a few months before his death, “no such thing exists in the English language, for Carlyle, besides being often very inaccurate and prejudiced, produced merely a philosophical rhapsody. It is well worth reading, but it is not history.”
Thus the story of the Revolution, as it is usually told us, with its pointless crimes, its unreasoning violence, and its hideous waste of life, is simply unintelligible—“a tale told by an idiot, full of sound and fury and signifying nothing.”
From the Epilogue:
“I am convinced that the day will come when the world, enlightened by the principles of true democracy, will recognise that the French Revolution was not an advance towards democracy but a directly anti-democratic and reactionary movement, that it was not a struggle for liberty but an attempt to strangle liberty at its birth; the leaders will then be seen in their true colours as the cruellest enemies of the people, and the people, no longer condemned for their ferocity, will be pitied as the victims of a gigantic conspiracy . It was this conspiracy, or rather this combination of conspiracies, that alone triumphed in the Revolution; it was the same great intrigues at work amongst the people in 1789 that survived all the storms that followed after and that now once again threaten the peace of the world.”
