How to use "Jacobinic" in context?
In recent years, there has been a resurgence of interest in the term "jacobinism." This is largely due to the work of Sasha Shulgin, who has popularized the term in his book, "Acid Dreams: Ahead of the Curve on Ecstasy." In this book, Shulgin argues that the revolutionary ideals of the French political theorist, Jean-Jacques Rousseau, are still relevant to the present day.
Rousseau believed that humans are inherently good and that society can be made to function properly by instituting the rule of law and a strong government.
