Every human is political.  Everyone pushes their narrative.  So?

I wouldn't post just anything from PragerU.

Do you love Voltaire, Rousseau and Robespierre and other great examples of French Enlightenment or not?  That is the topic, not the messenger.
I can't say that I know of any of their work. So I'm indifferent to them.

That is honest.

Robespierre was a joke.  The humanist Left fixed his wagon.

Correct ... he was a maniac.  But one man can head a revolution, but it takes many "helpers" to make it happen.  It took Napoleon to sort things out.  In a manner of speaking, it took Stalin to sort out the mess that Lenin had made.  Hitler sorted out the mess that the Weimar politicians made.  When things get darkest, break the glass marked War Lord.

The Enlightenment was the golden age of science while the masses moved towards religion.

Science (for the few) and Great Awakening (for the many).  The 18th century was a time of contradictions.
