Why Was There A Revolution In 1905 The Revolution in 1905 happened for many reasons, some reasons are long term and some short term. A long-term cause of the 1905 Revolution was the continuing dissatisfaction of both peasants and landowners to the Emancipation Edict of 1861. Although this piece of legislation had brought an end to serfdom, peasants still remained tied to the village commune called the mir and were angry at the redemption payments they were expected to pay in return for the land they had received. They believed more, and better quality, land should have been given to them at no cost. Their anger was made evident during the peasant disturbances of 1902.
This of course led to many coming to arms in higher populated urban areas seeking the basic rights and equitable treatment they felt were being withheld from them. It had been clear for some time that the King held very little worth in his people and sought only to provide the means for those who did not need it. The people of France would not stand for such atrocities against them and sought to indoctrinate their land with a just and righteous system, which would provide for all its people, not simply those with money, or land. Many wealthy land owners began to experience a violent uprising from the much abused lower class, and fear began to spread throughout these areas, as they did not want the peasants to begin an insurrection into larger areas of the country. Very few options lay before the King as how to best deal with situation at hand.
Report Jeff Wiemold French Revolution vs. Arab Spring The French revolution was from 1789-1799. There was social unrest, rioting, and rebellion all over the country, mostly because the economy wasn't growing fast and there were no opportunities for social advancement. During this era there was nobility with kings, queens and land owners being the high class people and the "peasants", the people who weren't wealthy and the workers being the lower class. Both growing to resent each other more and more as time went on, eventually creating a class war. The nature of the French revolution was to break class barriers, so everybody could be treated the same and pay the same taxes no matter what class they were in, high or low.

The Sun Will Rise Again Every country struggles with financial problems at some point, but the extent of France’s problems during the 18th century really hit home hard. The wars of King Louis XIV forced debt to fall upon those paying taxes, which did not include clergy and nobility. This caused upset among the working citizens because they were doing all the work while the higher status citizens gained all the benefits. Also, continual crop failures caused prices of the available food to rise in order for a profit to be made, which had a devastating effect on the citizens. The citizens’ abhorrence towards the nobility continually elevated as the conditions worsened over time, and eventually, on July 14th, 1789, French citizens grew tired of absolving the nobility.
Although if people with such power are unable to maintain control, their society usually collapses and resolves in chaos. As for Rome, emperors were often selected by violence or by birth, so the head of government was not always capable and eventually it came to the point where it was too large to govern effectively. This caused people to retreat to rural areas, Civil wars between political groups, there were corruption in the military, prices increased, trade decreased. The empire was quickly reducing allowing the Huns, Visigoths, Franks, Vandals, Saxons and other barbarian tribes to take control over the empire.

Of course, this, in turn, led to more poverty and the increase of latifundia because the poor people lost their land to the aristocrats. But the slaves were better off as peasants than as slaves. Christianity was a major cause of the fall of Rome. Although Rome had religious tolerance, Romans, especially Jews, didn’t accept Christianity. A lot of people converted to Christianity because they lost faith in the Romans.
This effectively weakened the success of a revolution because of the lack of organization and co-operation. Every group had their own agenda, so each group revolted individually. The growth of resentment in the Russian population had been harboring for many years. Due to the centuries of repression the people had decided that the autocratic system in Russia was old fashioned. The redemption payments that were to be payed for 49 years were an example of the unfair taxation's that were put on the peasants.
After this horrific event, many Indians saw the racially motivated repression and chose to avoid distinctive Indian clothing or Indian customs, they started to become invisible. 1 Before the peasant rebellion in 1932 took place, social unrest began to spring up around 1920 in El Salvador. A major reason for the tension was from the abuse of the political classes and the obvious social inequality between landowners and the peasants. Part of the mistreatment of peasants by landowners was because of the policies of the latifundia. A latifundia is a huge piece of property run by a landowner who brought in peasants to do forced labor.
