    Wow. Hot

    Stan Leftwing activists are sexy.
  • Stan 4y

    David Shankbone Didn't Goethe say that too?
  • David Shankbone 4y

    Stan If he didn't say it, I bet he thought it.
  • Stanley Rogouski 4y

    Goethe was exactly 30 when the French Revolution broke out.

    The "left wing" female activists of his day would have been the women who led the "Women's March on Versailles" or the women who participated in the storming of The Tuileries on the Tenth of August, 1792.

    They were usually rough lower class women from the slums of Paris who scared the ever living shit out of upper class, court artists like Herr Goethe. That Charles Dickens put so much energy into demonizing these women in the form of Madame Defarge testifies to just how terrified the privileged classes were of the left wing women of their day.

    Oh yeah, good photo.

    Stanley Rogouski Stanley, sounds like a lot of people would have been afraid of leftwing women back in 1792! Thanks for the compliment.

    Does anyone find it ironic that, according to Wikipedia....

    In politics Goethe was conservative. At the time of the French Revolution, he thought the enthusiasm of the students and professors to be a perversion of their energy and remained skeptical of the ability of the masses to govern.[6
  • David Shankbone 4y

    Stu Friedman Interesting observation in the context of the French Revolution. Otherwise no, because it would be like saying conservatives have nothing to learn from John Locke, Voltaire or Thomas Hobbes, all liberals.
  • Stanley Rogouski 4y

    Goethe was a conservative but he still reported objectively on the ass kicking the French revolutionary army administered to the Prussians at Valmy. He was "embedded" with the royalist armies. One can only imagine the "fair and balanced" way one of today's conservatives would have described it.

    But if it's possible to be enslaved and still feel free, how can one be sure of one's freedom?
