I guess it is because we are in Christmas days.. and Champagne just is producing its bacchic effects ...Religious tolerance, secularization, equality before the law, abolition of guilds, freedom of trade, equality of taxation,
Religious tolerance? beautiful word to mean looting, fires, violations and destruction of cultural heritage.
Secularization? now does it say so? Yes... as the Nazis secularizated Poland....
About guilds, trade and taxation.. the Ancient Régime was evolving ... it was just a matter of decades maybe less.
