Vive la révolution!


Bastille Day. France remembers and celebrates the storming of the Bastille and, among other things, replacing a king with the National Convention, then replacing the National Convention with the Directory, then replacing the Directory with the Consulate, then replacing the Consulate with an emperor, then replacing an emperor with a king, then replacing a king with another king, then replacing that king with a president, then allowing a president to become an emperor, then replacing that emperor with another president.

Vive la révolution!
