Storyboard Text

  • When you are done cooking, cleaning, and laundry  Don't forget to go outside and mow the dirt!!
  • Sup Girl
  • Bonjour Monsieur
  • Jean Jaques Rousseau was born June 28th, 1712 in Geneva Switzerland.  His mother died from complication of child birth and Jean was raised by his father until age 10.
  • Social Contract
  • At age 10 Jean's father got in trouble with the law and had to flee Switzerland to avoid jail.  Jean moved in with his mothers family where he was patronized and humiliated for 6 years until he left Switzerland.
  • Jean moved to France and met a benefactor Baroness de Warens. She provided Rousseau shelter and furthered his education so much that he changed from apprentice to a philosopher.
  • Rousseau's central doctrine in politics,  Social Contract, published in 1762 stated that direct democracy is the ideal form of government.  He believed that all people are created equal.  The Social Contract was that people must give up some freedoms in exchange for the  common good.
  • The Social Contract as well as most of Rousseau's writings were about the idea that all humans were born good by nature, but have been corrupted by society and civilization.
  • Many of my ideals inspired the political leaders of the French Revolution.   It would kill me to know that my theory that all people are born good by nature lead to sweeping military conflicts in Europe.  That very fact would have killed me ...... AGAIN.... since I had already died July 2, 1778.
