Hello,

I was wondering if anyone thought that there were certain aspects in society today that were similar of that during the French Revolution?

I mean, I know the political situation is somewhat similar, but is there anything else?

France was in a Civil War, and a War against the rest of Europe. The situation is hardly similar.
