The French

Over at the National Examiner, wrote Mr. Tim Worstall:

It did indeed mark the beginning of the end for a not very oppressive nor particularly inefficient monarchy, one soon to be superseded by the mass slaughter of the Revolution itself. A Revolution which quickly threw up Napoleon and the series of wars that kept Europe fighting from 1799 to 1815, a period in which millions upon millions died.

A funny thing to celebrate and have parades about but then that's the French for you.
