A call to Haiti’s awakening, success and strategies for a better future

by Ernst Etienne

This book highlights in deep the incredible accomplishment of the Haitian nation, being the only ever slave revolution leading to fighting off slavery and attaining independence through bloodshed. The slaves of Haiti played a great role in this after many years under French brutality.

In comparison to other Caribbean nations facing the same state of slavery, Haitian slaves were not allowed to trade internationally for more than 25 years until they agreed to pay huge debts to the French in 1827. Hence they actually had to repay their former â??masters’ for the loss of the â??masters’ â??property.

From a succinct yet enlightening journey through the history of Haiti’s land, to the series of events that earned the nation independence at last, this book is a manifesto declaring the glory and power of this beautiful country. It further deliberates the promise of potential that Haiti holds today to overcome its bounds and reach for the success that is destined in its future.

He was born on September 5th, 1638 in the French lap of luxury otherwise known as the “Chateau de Saint-Germain-en-Laye.” This extravagant palace of French excess is located about 12 miles west of Paris. His birth name, “Louis-Dieudonne,” is French for, literally, “Gift for God.” This belief of divine right, initially inspired by his mother Queen Anne, would be a powerful theme throughout Louis XIV’s life.

Inside you will read about…

â?? The Conflict of Kings
â?? War and Marriage
â?? The Noose Tightens
â?? The Scorched Earth of Louis XIV
â?? The Balance of Power
â?? Louis’s Last Stand
â?? The Death of the King
And much more!

Although he didn’t create absolutism in France, King Louis XIV seemed to embody the “divine right of kings” better than anyone had before him. Louis XIV directly correlated his own private good with that of the public good. There was really no concept of private property under Louis. The French King viewed all of France as his personal estate, with all who lived and toiled in his domain doing so only under his express permission; even so, not everyone in France had the same sentiment.
The ones who most notably resisted the notion of the King’s absolutism were the French nobles and aristocrats that Louis depended upon to raise armies and defend the country. Despite his theory of absolutism, this dependence on French nobility to bear arms, gave them increasing autonomy and independence from the King. It was this independence that would one day come to a head, and send Louis, the so-called “Sun King” of divine inheritance, into a full-blown conflict with his own subjects – and the world at large.
