    The statue of liberty and I don't know why. Maybe because of what it stands for in my mind. What it indicates. Some of the ideas that I would live and die for.

    -How beautiful, this pale Endymion hour.
    -What are you talking about?
    -Endymion, my dear. A beautiful youth possessed by the moon.
    -Well, forget about him and get to bed.
    -Yes, my dear.

    The Statue of Liberty is a direct copy of the Goddess of Reason, a statue installed in the Notre Dame Cathedral in Paris by the French Revolutionaries.

    And naturally the French Revolutionaries thought it would make a perfect gift for the American Revolutionaries. So they sent a larger copy of the Goddess of Reason across the Atlantic calling it, "The Statue of Liberty".

    And the Goddess of Reason, now the Statue of Liberty, is the perfect insult to Mary, the Mother of God.

    In fact the Goddess of Reason was meant to replace the Mother of God in her very own Cathedral, Notre Dame - the Cathedral of Our Lady.

    It is as vicious and destructive an insult that can be imagined - it replaces the warm body of Our Mother with cold reason.

    Mother Russia, on the other hand, remains a mother - warm and loving but a tigress in defence of her cubs.

    So you takes your pick - a loving mother or cold reason?

    That's certainly a better reason than conspicuous nips.

    Gah. Missed you, Ted.

    Victor,

    Do you have anything against freemasons?
    Furthermore, your story is not true at all. The Statue of Liberty is NOT the replica of the "Goddess of Reason" (who was worshipped only by extremist revolutionaries, and during a very short time, barely three weeks in 1793. Even Robespierre saw them as extremists, just to say how minor this event really was...).

    The statue of Liberty has a richer, deeper history within the French intellectual life of the 19th century. Every famous minds that France held dear took part to this gift to our sister nation. Victor Hugo, Viollet-le Duc, Eiffel... and many more. Do you really think Hugo was a rabid worshipper of Reason, for instance?

    Liberty is not a "cold" concept, and the torch is a reference to the Age of Enlightenment, to modern humanism.
