If the mainspring of popular government in peacetime is virtue, amid revolution it is at once virtue and terror: virtue, without which terror is fatal; terror, without which virtue is impotent.

I hope you have a chance to discuss the white terror after Thermidor.

I wish you say something on the impact Danton execution had on the people if it was any.

Off topic but perhaps of interest to THOR fans. http://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/worldnews/europe/italy/11651780/Gladiator-school-to-be-restored-in-Rome.html

Mike, it's taken over a year but I have finally caught up with you in real time. I've listened to all your podcasts, and am a better person as a result. Understanding history helps so much with understanding the present. I have a unique donation I'd like to give you. Please look for my e-mail with the subject "I bought a 222 year old Decrets de la convention nationale document today"
