Like a kind of Jerusalem for bad ideas.

Nowhere else can one discover that everyone else on earth is so completely unoriginal. Both for good and bad, we discover the auspicious history of the town of town of Montargis:

The men and women met in the Durzy gardens behind the Town Hall, where a wall was used for their propaganda posters. It was here in July 1920 that Cai Hesen -- the leading theoretician -- set out a programme for the "salvation of China" which the next month he urged in a letter to Mao.

"It is known as the letter of August 13th, and it proposed the creation of a Chinese Communist Party. Mao signalled his approval and the following year the party was set up," says Wang.
Then I guess it should come as no surprise that the CCP killed 77 million of their own people.

the fuse is lit!
