Bacon our Shakespeare

I notice this concerning both Francis Bacon Verulam AND Shakespeare: they are translated by scholars as:

-Shakespeare a Baroque author;

-Bacon a Baroque scientist;

Although they are obviously not Baroque at all. From the Holy Scriptures Shakespeare knows that 'time' is one fiendish operation. Roman or latin tradition of Montaigne can be qualified of Baroque style. Not Shakespeare against Roman principles and -first of them- the praise for the politics and the law.

"Induction" of Bacon is not far away from Aristotle's 'ontology' (see 'Physics', first chapters) that consists in seeing things not throughout the prism of 'time' (Contrarily to Newton or Descartes, for instance).

Even French Joseph de Maistre was smarter than today scholars are. De Maistre is a Christian Free-mason whose religious idea is very close to today U.S. theocratic idea ('First the State, then God': so can it be summarized). In this perspective de Maistre is the foe of both Shakespeare and Bacon, probably because he read them more acurately and noticed their common intention to pull out the sacred clothes of virtue and politics and show that 'the King is naked'. Due to his short experience in politics, Bacon knew everything about the impossible marriage between politics and science that recalls the impossible marriage of any Church with the Revelation.

(It is rather funny to observe that Joseph de Maistre -not well loved in France because of his hate of Voltaire and the French Revolution- is praised up by Sarkozy's party again now, friends of the Atlantic Pact, BUT not too much because of de Maistre apology of torture and pain that is frightening those little kids who do prefer soft paederastic bourgeois sado-masochism.)
