The Two Revolutions and the Three Principles Each Embodies

There have been two revolutions, the American and French, and they expressed not only to opposing view of government, but they represent the struggle between Freedom and Socialism today
writes R J Rummel (thanks to Dean and Steve), before going on to explain the three principles embodied by the American Constitution as compared to the three principes of the French Revolution, and concluding (a longer version here) that
the Freedom established by the American Revolution has been losing the struggle against the Counter-Revolution [and that] we are gradually being converted from the American to the French revolutionary principles.
