On Mission?[edit]

It was asked in the comment line of an edit if this was on mission. I'm assuming the editor meant the entire article. So I thought I'd open up the discussions and see what people think. Personally, I think it has serious potential to be on mission, as it was in many ways, a "rational" (in the philosophical sense, not the 'rationality is logic' sense) response to wrongful government. But I think we can focus it more, really bring that side of the article out - assuming we care about missionality.--Green mowse.pngGodotWhen I graduated, Cognative Science of Religion didn't even exist! now it's everywhere 14:57, 31 May 2012 (UTC)

I'd say it could also be on-mission from a conspiracy theory perspective, given the vast literature (both contemporary and modern) claiming that the revolution was some kind of masonic conspiracy. — Unsigned, by: ORavenhurst / talkDo You Believe That? 15:01, 31 May 2012 (UTC)
