It was the bourgeoisie class that was educated, yet they didn’t have privileges like the First and Second Estate consequently, they began to question if there should be a social and political change in France. John Locke is an example of a philosophe who helped shape the outline of the French Revolution because he said that if people are dissatisfied with their governments, they should overthrow them, so they could create a new government. In Haiti, the enlightenment helped shape the Haitian revolution because ideas like freedom and liberty inspired them to bring
It protected the people's right from the government. These new ideas influenced in the French Revolution just like other revolutions did too. In 1776 the American revolution took place and inspired the French people. The British colonies in the America’s declared their independence from the English Court and the lower class in France saw the possibility of throwing down the French
Post Thirty Years war left France looking for a new leadership style that would give plenty of stability. What France received was Louis XIV, who would reign under the new absolute monarchy government. During Louis’ reign, divine rights controlled rank in society. This left many confused on why they were picked to be at the bottom of society, and why the king was given his power. Jean Domat, a royally appointed juror by king Louis helped explain a better understanding of the new system of governance to the people of France in his writings.
The British government’s desire for territorial and sociopolitical dominance has been observed, and abhorred, by other nations and territories throughout the world’s history. In the eighteenth century, with the British incessantly exploiting the American colonies, the colonists quickly grew distrustful of and resentful toward their domineering leader across the ocean. In 1776, a year following the beginning of the Revolutionary War, this ill treatment motivated Thomas Jefferson to pen a document that has become known as the Declaration of Independence. The influential founding father provocatively besought the support of the French government in the ongoing war between England. It was Jefferson’s hope that the text would persuade France to
The French Revolution and its effect on society It is important to have a power distribution - a government that governs society's economy, makes and implements laws - but one must take care not to oppress the rights of the people. Also, the ordinary people have - perhaps more than anyone else - something to have said. A country would not work without its people, and if they feel oppressed, an imbalance in the power distribution would arise, which might tip over as it has so many times before.
The French Revolution had actually five causes, but actually the main reason was that French was passing by some financial problems, but we have a lot of other reasons like: we had the Revolutionary situation, the social inequality, the Enlightenment ideas, the debt, the taxation, the failure of reforms etc. French Revolution started in 1789 and ended in 1799 and yes was the same time that the big political leader Napoleon Bonaparte was in France command. What do you think? It’s going to be a good or a bad thing for France and the Frenches? Let 's see.
Book Review John Dewey Democracy and Education Democracy and Education was published by John Dewey in 1916.

Overall, the Haitian Revolution is a contrast to the French Revolution because the main reasons and goals of the people were different. In Haiti, the news of American Independence motivated slaves to unite and fight for equality from European nations. Meanwhile in France, the radicals hoped that by overthrowing the monarchy, a new assembly would be created and France would become a republic. Enlightenment philosophies played a role in both revolutions, yet the main reasons for the events differed from one
This also occurred during the French Revolution. The Directory had been the current government but it had become weak and ineffective. That resulted in a coup d'état where there was a forced transfer of power over to Napoleon. The citizens of France loved Napoleon because he promised stability, peace, and order, three
In a letter from George Washington to Robert Orme, Washington “expressed an Inclination to serve the ensuing Campaigne as a Volunteer” referring to the topic, the French and Indian war, to be on America’s side of the conflict. This proved to be a wise choice considering Washington himself would become a main force in the later Revolutionary War and eventually become the first President of the United States, proving that Washington had indeed a certain hostility towards the opposing British. Another document, a map of America pre-war and post-war denotes just how hostile France’s relations with Britain’s are, as it is shown that France’s percentage of land was taken away immensely after the war unfolded. France also showed a growing bond with America through a mutual hate of the world’s bully,

However, one theme of international policy remained: secure New France in America. In The French War Against America: How a Trusted Ally Betrayed Washington and the Founding Fathers, Harlow Giles Unger depicts a story of French influence in American politics to obtain their lost lands in America.
The Radical and the Republican by James Oakes Book Review James Oakes’ The Radical and the Republican is a thorough and captivating account of two of America’s most distinguished figures, Abraham Lincoln and Frederick Douglas. In his intriguing and polished work, Oakes examines the issues of slavery, race, politics, and war in America during the mid-1800’s. Though both Abraham Lincoln and Frederick Douglas engendered immense social and political change throughout the Civil War era, the relationship between the two men is often neglected.
The two revolution I am going to be talking about are The French Revolution and The American Revolution. Those actions took place in Europe and The New World in the late 1700´s and the early 1800´s. The French Revolution was a violent example. Then in the other hand The American Revolution that preceded The French exemplifies another way of having a revolution. That is why I am going be comparing and contrasting that two revolution, so that you can give me your opinion.
Democracy is the foundation of the American government, and its application creates the opportunity of social class intermingling. Albeit in the form of social interaction or working one’s way up the chain of command. The labor standoff between the Homestead workers and management became the tipping point for manners in American democracy. This tipping point resulted in violent altercations, assassination attempts, and ultimately broken spirits. The Homestead strike in the 19th century not only exemplifies how democracy instigated class blending, but also diminished morality.
