One-track mind

Was the French Revolution not all that different in a long list of ways from early political Zionism? The idea of the revolution's leaders coming from the ranks who thought they were the oppressors only to discover--horrors!--that they are among the ranks of the oppressed?

Unrelated, but I'm delighted with my new black ballet flats. At $39, they were about as much as a low-ranking noble title. I'm also sneezing a lot less than I was yesterday, so between that, the ballet flats, and the new (mis)understanding of the French Revolution, I feel absolutely fabulous.
