The Antifragile Chaos Monkey
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.
