      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 ,

        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
