Cited a few bits from Eric Hoffer's books "The Ordeal of Change" and "The True Believer" today to get me started on more analysis of the effect of the Commune on social movements. 

Then I found a post by David Warren that got me going on the implications of socialism, nationalism and democracy.  It seems that everywhere I look these days I see references to the Commune, or to something that could have been affected by the Commune, or Napoleon III or Pio Nono or Garibaldi or Bismarck.  I know, that could be happening because I am, quite unknowingly, looking for that sort of reference.
