The men make her own history, but they don't make her how they want;  they don't make her/it under circumstances of her choice and yes under those with that hey are confronted directly, delegated and transmitted by the past.  The tradition of all of the generations died oppresses as a nightmare the brain of the alive ones.  It is exactly when they seem determined in revolutionizing itself and the things, in creating something that never existed, precisely in those periods of revolutionary crisis, the men plot eagerly in yours aid the spirits of the past, taking them borrowed the names, the war screams and the apparels, in order to present and in that borrowed language.  Like this, Lutero adopted the apostle's mask Paulo, the Revolution of 1789-1814 got dressed alternately as the Roman republic and as the Roman empire, and the Revolution of 1848 didn't know how to do anything better of the than to parody some times 1789, other times the revolutionary tradition of 1793-1795.
In an identical way, the beginner that he/she learns a new language, he/she always translates the words of this language for his/her native language;  but only when it can handle him/it without to appeal for the past and to forget his/her own language in the job of the new, it will have assimilated the spirit of this last one and it will freely be able to produce in her.

The exam of those conspiracies of deads of the history of the world reveals an outstanding difference of ready.  Camile Desmoulins, Danton, Robespierre, Saint-Just, Napoleon, the heroes, the parties and the masses of the old French Revolution, carried out the task of his/her time, the task of to free and to establish the modern bourgeois society, in Roman clothes and with Roman sentences.  The first ones reduced to pieces the feudal base and they cut off the feudal heads that on her had grown.  Napoleon, on his/her side, created in France the conditions without which it would not be possible to develop the free competition, to explore the divided territorial property and to use the forks productive industrialists of the nation that had been freed;  besides the borders of France he swept for every part the feudal institutions, in the measure in that this was necessary to give to the bourgeois society of France an appropriate and current atmosphere in the European continent.
Once established the new social formation, the antediluvian colossuses disappeared, and with them to Rome ressurrecta - Brutus, Gracos, Publcolas, the tribunes.  the senators and own Caesar.  The bourgeois society, with his/her sober realism, it had generated their true interpreters and mouthpieces in Says, Cousins, Royer-Coilards, Benjamm Constants and Guizots;  their true military bosses sat down behind the work tables and the brain of bacon of Lus XVIII was his/her political head.

In short, they overthrew the Ancient Regime, paying a high price in blood.  Yet, they themselves invoked the Ancients to give themselves legitimacy.  They were neither all good nor all evil, and one wonders could things have been done differently?
