  1. French Revolution? Okay, yeah, they got carried away, but what they did doesn't seem like control so much as it seems like the ends justifying the means. (Sometimes I hear them referred to as "leftists", but I can't see it.) I was disputing your implication here (and also here) that the Enlightenment resulted in a shift to "preference"-oriented thinking, which is different than consent to me.
