Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.

Well personally, this was just rhetoric.  I am too old for this sort of thing--revolutions are for the young.

However, if you think that folks are not at the stage to do something LIKE bringing back the guillotine, you are sadly mistaken. Whether its gas prices, official corruption, or the Iraq Occupation, folks I know are FURIOUS.  Soon, they will have very little to lose.

What happens next is anyone's guess.  It probably will not involve the guillotine because that would require folks understand some history.  But a spontaneous blockade of NYC by truckers who have decided their economic problems are caused by speculators on Wall Street could happen.  Since a city would begin running out of food in three days, this would get VERY interesting, very quickly.
