Subject: REvolution

I shall appreciate reading the views of fellow HUMANISTS
regarding a historical question that was put to me and to which, as
a "mediaevilist", I cannot respond with clarity and assurance. Which
revolution made a greater contribution to the betterment of humanity:
the French Revolution (whose bi-centennial is to be celebrated next
July 14) or the American Revolution?


P.S. Defeatist suggestions that I could read a book (or books) on
the subject would run against the "grain" of e-writing.
