Napoleon -- Is it not strange that he recognized the importance of equality of all people on one hand, but on the other he crowned himself emperor? What do you think, was he really convinced about possibility of people being equal or he just played an diplomatic game with the majority of French citizens? To me it seems, he played the game after he recognized how much power he will gain by the support of not only the French army, but the common people. Let me know what is your opinion about this.

    he played the game and did it well. he got ruling class killed in the name of "democracy". he played on peoples hopes telling them he was for diplomacy the ironic thing though is the ruling class died because of the american revolution debts.

    But this is what I had said earlier: Napoleon's importance to the French Revolution includes that he created a rule that was copied by almost every country and this rule was that every man should be treated equally and this rule helped in the French revolution and he also fought in a lot of wars and he won gaining more land for the French and enabling them to gain much power. Basically, Napoleon was an important figure in French history. He not only had a huge helping hand in the French Revolution, be he also led the rebellions with his head high and eventually, all throughout Europe, proving their strength. He also created a rule in France that “every man should be treated equal.” This rule was quickly endorsed into almost every country all throughout the world.

    So how can I rephrase all this to fit your point of view now?

    Napoleon's importance to the French Revolution includes that he created a rule that was copied by many country's in Europe. the "american" ideals greatly influenced his rule. the one main idea was that every man should be treated equally and this idea helped in starting the French revolution. he also fought in many wars that and when he won gaining more land for the French and enabling them to gain much power and glory within its self. Basically, Napoleon was an important figure in French history. He not only had a huge helping hand in the French Revolution, be he also led the rebellions with his head high and eventually, all throughout Europe, proving their strength. He also created a rule in France that “every man should be treated equal.” This rule was quickly endorsed into almost every country around french empire until his exile.

    You need to read George Orwell's "Animal Farm." The answer lies in there. "Everyone is equal -- but some are more equal than others." That is nearly the universal secret truth to philosophies that stress "equality." God's own truth is that men are NOT made equal. Some are faster on the track, some are quicker at the blackboard, some are better at being King Arthor, some are better at being Merlin, or Guinevere, or the Black Knight. Some are born to work with their hands, some with their mind, some inspire by their joy, some care through their tears. We are anything but equal. What the true lover of libety preaches is equality of *opportunity*. That no one put arbitrary and unnecessary barriers in the way of each man and woman achieving what he wants, and is capable of. Nothing less -- but nothing more. No one should tie weights to the ankles of an Olympic athlete, in a misguided effort to make him more "equal" to a 220 lb couch potato who dreams of an Olympic gold but isn't willing to hit the running trail at 6 am every day. No one should arbitrarily subtract grade points from a smart student, to make a student who isn't as bright, or doesn't try as hard, from feeling his inequality. Carry that sentiment through to every part of your life, and you have the solid beginnings of a philosophy of individual liberty. Which says very little about the equality of man. I'm sure there are cases where a politician or leader has spoken of his reverence for equality and NOT been a lying deceptive power-hunger narcissist wretch. I just can't think of any right now.
