This showed Europe that the French were capable of revolting and they were not afraid to stand up for what they believed. They demonstrated pure democracy by abolishing the 3 estates and assuming power for the people. These two points are miniscule compared to death, destruction, and economic failures that the Revolution brought. The French Revolution was mostly a failure because of the ineffective execution of reforms and unnecessary massacre of lives. However it was a minor success because of the socialistic ideologies that were given birth to during the Revolution, which helped reform France into what it is today.
The French also raised import taxes, allowing profit for every transaction. Another branch of success that the French had was their aggressive and supreme military, creating expansion of their borders. Both the French absolute monarchy and the English monarchy used success to help modernize each of their societies. A major difference between the French and the English was their use of kings. While the French supported absolutism or the autocratic rule of their king, the English distributed equal power to the parliament as well as the king.
While King Louis XVI and Queen Marie Antoinette sat in their beautiful castle bathing in luxury and wealth, the people of France were plagued with social, political and economic struggles that their leaders ignored. This gap between the people of France and the nobility was a major social problem. The leaders were not respected by those they led, when the people of France found out the royals had not yet conceived a child they release political cartoons that mocked them. They lived in opposite worlds, while King Louis XVI and Marie
There were also many social unfairness among the taxes between the estates. Also the 3rd Estate peoples were fighting for justice because they were the people who suffered the most pain and lived the poverty life. The French revolution would not have happened unless the king kept and used his power carefully and handling economic, social, and political situations instead of
In the Eighteenth century, there was a lot of unfairness and injustices. The social ranking of France was divided into three estates. The First Estate was formed of the clergy, Second Estate was formed of the nobility, and lastly, the Third Estate was formed of the commoners, which was 97 % of France's population. The Third Estate lived an unhappy, miserable life, while the First and Second Estate lived privileged lives. As the Third Estate lived an unfair life comparing to upper estates, conflicts started to rise.
When people are being treated poorly, people will need to revolt and that is what happened to cause the French revolution. Also, when taxes are unfair such as taxing the lower class heavily and the upper class none people will get mad and revolt ant that lead to the French revolution. Lastly, in a society there can be lots of problems with equality and that happen in france so when the lower class was being treated so poorly compared to the rest of the world they had to make a change so they started a revolution. There were three main cause in the french revolution inequality, unfair taxes, and people being treated
The French and American Revolutions were both turning points in the histories of their respective countries and had a large impact on the world as a whole. They have also often been classified as ‘modern revolutions’ in various papers and books including On Revolution (1963) by Hannah Arendt. This paper aims to compare and contrast various aspects of the American and French revolutions and show that they both have indeed been rightly classified as revolutions. The first similarity between the two revolutions is the fact that they were both born out of societies that were facing severe social and economic problems (“A Comparison of the French Revolution and American Revolution”). In France, the financial situation was pitiable
The entire French Revolution started simply with a famine and a greedy king. This revolution could have been completely avoided had there been one simple variable changed and the outcome could have saved a lot of lives. The french revolution happened to start because of the American Revolution and other wars and military spending. The two main causes of the lack of wealth in France was the kings Louis XV and Louis XVI along with the militaries profuse amount of spending. Since France didn 't have enough money to feed their people, their people decided
The French Revolution at the end of the 18th century was a major event in history, and there are differing opinions on whether or not the revolution was successful. I believe that the French Revolution was successful because the goals of the revolution were achieved: a representative government was established, equality between the Three Estates was increased, and the country as well as the lives of its people were improved. Success can have many definitions, but I would define it as achieving one’s goals. Since this happened in the French Revolution, I believe that it was successful. One of the main goals of the French Revolution was to abolish the absolute monarchy in France and establish a constitutional monarchy, and this goal was achieved through the Constitution of 1791.
The innovation of French forces enhanced the overall capabilities of the United States forces. Ultimately leading to the victory over the Nazi’s and giving the ability to allow the growth of the French’s impact of culture to grow and bounce back from the turmoil. Foreigners who were permitted to colonize into France after the World Wars contributed to the diversity of culture. The French tolerated immigrants coming into their country being cognizant that it would foster an environment for more varieties of religion. Nevertheless, they prohibited symbols of certain faith in schools because they want to “reserve their philology and ethos.” There are certain emblems and items the French have attempted to restrict from adorning while in communal institutes to prevent any societal strain and to maintain (Roman Catholicism) as the center of religion.
