Do you have an aversion to honesty? You never said anything about "French Democracy" until after your original position had been obliterated. This was your original statement: France was a bit player in the development of modern Western Civ.

"Modern" in the Western Hemisphere dating from the Declaration of Independence in 1776; in the Eastern Hemisphere, from the end of the French Revolution in 1799. You just gotta pick your dates correctly!

The post it was responding to was about France as a Democracy. I used the word "modern" in the sentence as a point of separation, and then followed it with a sentence that clearly described what I meant by by that delineation.

Quote:
There's a reason they went from a major world power in the age of Kings to a me-too country in the Anglo-American age.
There's absolutely no way you can read that sentence and still maintain that I said France under the House of Bourbon had little impact.

You basically keep reiterating what I already said and then say I didn't say it.
