To Hell
Five Rousseau
Infants did
Die abandoned

The first thing you need to know about Rousseau is, he sent all his children to certain death, as newborns, abandoning them to a 1700s Paris orphanage (there is no record of a survivor.) Why? His ‘wife’ (of his own choosing) was ‘low-born.’ The second thing necessary to know is he plagiarized the ideas of a truly original thinker:

“False, vain as Satan, ungrateful, cruel, hypocritical, and wicked … He sucked ideas from me, used them himself, and then affected to despise me!” -Diderot

Converted to Catholicism as a matter of expediency, he later reconverted to Calvinism (as a matter of expediency.) Such is the stuff makes up the collection of corpses littering the French ‘Pantheon.’

“Man’s first law is to watch over his own preservation; his first care he owes to himself; and as soon as he reaches the age of reason, he becomes the only judge of the best means to preserve himself; he becomes his own master” -Jean-Jacques Rousseau, The Social Contract

At the end of the day, Rousseau presents a society underwritten by sociopaths; and as such, he proposes the foundation underlying his ‘social contract.’ The Western philosophy of ‘reason’ is a system where the consequent ‘gift’ of democracy is represented in those many statues glorifying a psychopath‘s ‘republic’ of vanity:
