      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
