        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 ,

          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
