The means of the Russian revolution were not the right way to dictate people or a “correct” way to hold those responsible. However, the results were able to justify the actions that were taken during the revolution. The Russian revolution was provoked by many civilians in Russia who were in unrest. The majority of households prior to the revolution could not afford to feed their families without going into debt and becoming poor. During this time the peasant population was rising significantly leaving very few jobs and many out of work; fewer and fewer people had the ability to purchase basic necessities.
Although it could have been the other way around, but the proletariats helped shape the bourgeoisie class and made it to what it is today, kind of like how you use your fingers to help shape a perfect clay pot. The bourgeoisie are owners of social production or employers of wage labor. The proletarians helped shaped the bourgeoisie class when some other people were unhappy with their life and wanted more or they wanted to make a better living for themselves. So, they brought up their own business and did every single slimy, sleazy action they could to get to the top. Some bourgeoisie are very cunning and greedy.
Just 1% of the population is the capitalist class which comprises of heirs, investors etc. it is divided into two categories that are ‘old’ money and ‘new’ money. The wards of ‘new’ money families enter the families of ‘old’ money by marrying them or by attending right kind of schools. 15% of the population consists of the upper middle class which comprises of upper managers, professionals etc who are mostly postgraduates and have attended good colleges or universities. This class is the one class that has most of its people groomed up by education.
This was similar to the United States of America, as the US was also trying to industrialize with a purpose of factories and people working in them. A big factor of the industrialization that both America and Russia shared was that both of these countries had a very unfair system for workers. The pay was not great, and people who were poor had it even worse. There is even an old saying that fits this very well, “The rich get richer”. This is true because the people who were already poor, who were working for the money so they could afford things like homes, food, water, and clothing, were staying poor, because their pay was so low that at the rate of them using their money for necessities, they were earning barely enough to afford them.
The townspeople are suffering greatly due to the lack of food resulting in many deaths and that is what made them contribute to the revolution. Many people in Russia such as soldiers and townspeople are anguished with how there is simply not enough supplies to support themselves resulting in hardship and
Both the rich and the poor shared the same means of entertainment and in this case they both enjoyed sports. They both enjoyed watching teams competing for victory. Although the “working-class males had a greater appeal for baseball” and the “elite segment of the male population appealed to football” they both enjoyed this form of entertainment. Another similarity between both social classes would be that both the rich and the poor were fanatics of music, theater, and movies. They both would enjoy the acts the magicians, musicians, jugglers, and comedians performed in the theater.
The nobles were at the top of the social hierarchy. Their job was to provide work, land, and protection to the peasants. They also provided funding, supplies, and military service to the king. The nobility often engaged in warfare for entertainment and protection to the citizens. After being hit by inflation due to the Hundred Years’ War, many nobles robbed other people as a way to raise money.
The lower Classes sustained the rights and privileges to the Upper Classes, and in most cases enacted by laws sustained the Feudal System. Everything was a source of privilege for the nobles. The high-ranking nobles lived in castles with their knights, ladies and retinues. Others “enjoyed” their daily life on poor and harsh lives. Table of Contents 1.
As the Third Estate lived an unfair life comparing to upper estates, conflicts started to rise. Their was a lot of resentment between the different classes in France. More than half of the population in France was made up of the bourgeoisie including the peasantry. The clergy and nobles didn't have to pay taxes even though they were the ones spending most of the countries money. The commoners worked really hard to pay their taxes on time and to feed their families.
Evidence that social inequality is responsible for starting the French Revolution is the social condition before the revolution and its impact on the citizens. Privileges were one of the symbols of inequality during the time, the higher classes such as the nobility and the clergy were granted excessive privileges while the commoners on the other hand were given none. One of the famous example of these privileges were taxes, although the monarchy was able to tax the privileged elite before the revolution, the commoners was still burdened by heavy taxes while the clergy are still exempt from paying taxes. Although the clergy and the nobility made up only three percent of the total population, they are the wealthiest classes in the empire thus by the exemption of taxes, it had a big impact on the economy. This combined with the inefficiency of French’s tax system
