          Thank you for founding this club. This is a man
          everyone should learn about. No matter the controversy
          surrounding him, he was instrumental in practically giving
          life and inspiration to the modern democratic ideals
          we all admire and enjoy.<br><br>P.S. By the way, the
          person under whose name I'm writing has a lot of
          artistic background and would like to give you a hand with
          the colors and background of this club.<br><br>P.P.S.
          I read in several places that Robespierre's family
          was of Irish origin. Does anyone know more about
          this?

            Maximilien's family was of Irish origin, but I'll see if I can
            find anything on this matter.<br> Thank you very much

                Hello! I hope everybody likes what I did with the
                colours& background.<br> I would like to know your opinion
                about this:<br>As you know, Robespierre had a brother
                named Augustin, who was also a member of the "Comite de
                Salut Public". In your opinion, was he just trying to
                build his reputation on his brother's account or did he
                really stand up for what he believed in?<br> Thanks.<br>

                  I think he really stood up for what he believed:
                  in fact when the Assembley (the Convention) decided
                  to put Robespierre, Saint-Just, Couthon under arrest
                  , Robespierre's brother Augustin asked to be put
                  himself under arrest!<br>He could have saved his life,
                  but he preferred to follow his ideals!

                    Hello! I'm sorry I haven't posted lately. Since
                    2001 is almost over, I wish you all a Happy New
                    Year!<br> I just read something that bothered me a lot. In
                    his book, "Le Passe d'une Illusion", French historian
                    Francois Furet (a specialist in the French Revolution)
                    compares the execution of the partisans of Danton and
                    Hebert to the way Stalin eliminated his opponents.
                    Personally, I believe that comparing Robespierre to Stalin is
                    truly unfair. There was nothing noble about Stalin,
                    after all... And besides, Danton was executed because
                    he was corrupt and Hebert because he lead a very
                    violent faction!<br> I would like to know what is your
                    opinion.<br> Thanks a lot!!!<br> Anca
