I was informed here that Marie Antoinette never "Let them eat cake." She said "Let them eat brioche!"

Actually, no one knows who said either, if anyone did at all.

Either way, the problems that led to the French Revolution was massive inflation used to finance the former King's wars, including his involvement in the our own Revolution. People couldn't afford to eat unless they were rich. So if you're truly concerned about the plight of the working man, you wouldn't cite a revolution that was the forerunner to proletarian democracy or the "centralized, totalitarian, managerial, pseudo-democratic despotisms that now reign over the West," you'd be targeting deficit spending and our central bank which is the real culprit in the so-called income gap increasing.

Even the so called "Arab-Springs" were fueled by food becoming unaffordable to the average Mohammed. Afterall, Keynesian central banking is now global.
