The history of the English speaking peoples can be understood as a never ending struggle for liberty.
The history of the French speaking peoples can be understood as repeated attempts to replace one type of collectivist-statist arrangement with another. The newer version is cosmetically quite different from the older version, yet the central statist conceit remains unchanged.

Worshiping God was replaced by worshiping the state.
