"Yep! People are people and I even hesitate to classify them as simply good or bad, though some deserve such distinctions.  I think most people are generally good, though often can be jerks or hold bad beliefs."

"Your point is well taken, but don't forget that most subsequent democratic revolutions, and most major ones, were patterned more on the French violent overthrow than the American secession, making the French revolution the pattern-maker."
