France celebrated Bastille Day (Fête Nationale or quatorze juillet) on July 14. It commemorates the 1790 Fête de la Fédération, held on the first anniversary of the storming of the Bastille on 14 July 1789, a very important event during the French Revolution.
The fortress-prison Bastille, a symbol of despicable tyranny, was stormed on July 14, 1789 . . .
I consider the French Revolution to be the greatest Revolution in the history of humankind. It was the Revolution that abolished a filthy oppressive feudal system lorded over by tyrants who were determined to crush the uprising of the oppressed people by any means, including inviting foreign armies to invade France. The tyrants who were a part of the oppressive system and many others were killed at the guillotine. The brutal executions at the guillotine were the saddest part of the French Revolution, but they were to be expected in the 18th century. The French Revolution has inspired many Revolutions around the world where filthy oppressive systems were abolished and scum beings who exploited the oppressed people were overthrown. The French Revolution gave the noble ideas of Liberty, Equality and Fraternity to the world. The French Revolution also played a very important part in establishing the inalienable rights of human beings and citizens – Human Rights in modern parlance. It also laid the foundations for social democracy – the system that has enabled the European countries (and others that are wise enough to adopt a similar system) lead the world in every development parameter.

May the French Revolution continue to inspire Revolutions around the world! Filthy systems and concepts that keep people oppressed deserve to be abolished and evil scum beings who use their power to exploit the oppressed deserve to be overthrown by violent means, if necessary. Long live the noble ideas of the French Revolution! Long live the beautiful concepts of Liberty, Equality, Fraternity and Human Rights!
