Well, there are revolutions and there are revolutions, right?  Each is
fundamentally different, though the tendency of social science thinking is
to find common denominators and models applicable to all of them.  

A lot of this discussion has to do with the bourgeois nature of the English
and French (and American) revolutions.  Don't the reactions of a Thermidor
make complete sense when we're discussing revolution that entrenches a
minority class in power?

By the way, Yoshie's list of examples of revolutionary French organizations
that went under because of Thermidor goes on and on....
