Whereas the French wanted a revolution to be freed from the monarchs that were implementing things in France. Due to the common reasons why the French and Americans were persisting into having a revolution made it seem like these revolutions were very similar. Unfortunately, there is some indifference towards both of the revolutions.
Not only did they westernized their education with modern sciences and modern life, but they also made a frame for the to establish laws and courts of justice (Document3). The British built a strong and efficient administration ran the government for the Indians, deciding that they would not be able to run their government properly, became a problem later for India. Imperialism may have been a positive force for India in many ways, but the economic gain benefitted
By combining the doctrines of government by consent and constitutionalism, modern liberals have found a way of reconciling effective government with the right and freedoms of both the individual and intermediate groups. This effects the policies of the other mainstream parties as it provides a more secure relationship within society leading the other parties to follow this. Classical liberals are largely inspired by the philosophy of John Stuart mill. Mill described the scope of liberty as “absolute freedom of opinion and sentiment on all subjects, practical or speculative, scientific moral or theological….” Mill believed that freedom would maximise human progress by promoting innovations, creativity and self-fulfilment. This shows that Mill saw humans as creative individuals thus leading to an interest of tolerance as a political virtue i.e.
France wasn’t part of the colonies like America was, America was sick of being treated badly, and unfairly so they decided to fight. But as for France they were having trouble with their government and needed to create a new one witch they did. And to me it seems like America had much more at stake. The American and French Revolution both worked out in favor of France and for America they both got what they wanted France got the government they fought for, and America parted ways with Britain. The two revolutions were a big part in both America’s history, and a big part in Frances history.
Ryan Lerner The French Revolution is widely regarded as one of the most bizarre times in the history of the world. One of the most bizarre occurrences from this movement came with the adoption of a new French calendar. With the French movement, the phrase, “liberty, equality, and fraternity” became increasingly important. However, the adoption of the revolutionary calendar actually undermined all three of these values. While this calendar may have seemed very logical, promoting religious and social reform, it actually did much more harm than good.
The British introduced a parliamentary system of government to the Indians. As stated in document 3 by Romesh Dutt, “Englishman has given the people of India the greatest human blessing – peace.” They have introduced Western Education. This has brought an ancient and civilized nation in touch with modern thought, modern sciences, and modern life. This means that the British have positively affected India because they brought over their knowledge and educated the natives, which results in more skilled workers. They also modernized India with their economic system of Mercantilism, and their parliamentary form of government.
The Republicans supported the popular forces in the French Revolt and wanted America to assist. On the other had, Federalists opposed the anti-monarchy group. This preference can subsequently be equated into the parties’ political views, small versus big government
Providing the Confederacy with war supplies influenced Southern power, and their assertiveness towards the Union proved beneficial to international relations. The victory of the Union encouraged the forces in Britain that demanded more democracy and public contribution into the political system. Rather than an outbreak of war, relations between America and Britain were ultimately improved when the idea of widespread famine threatened England. The American Civil War proved difficult but eventually beneficial for Britain, giving them the opportunity to check their growth and rise to power. Keeping within British tradition and diplomacy, Britain never openly partnered with the South and their involvement in the war was to protect their own people, economy, actions and
This view is largely accredited because Pitt came into office in a difficult time but events around him seemed to benefit him rather well. Britain was entering the industrial revolution at the time, industry rose up and trade would boom due to expansion of the industries at home and abroad, the advancements of technology meant that Britain was going through a natural change that arguably Pitt was able to captain through leading to better fortunes. The natural opposition from the Whig party against the king led by Charles Fox meant that Pitt naturally had the Kings support against any opposition which could be thrown at him, the king would back him up. The American Revolution and his lack of connection to it meant that he was seen as a new politician not one of the previously failed governments who’s lack of control and rule in a situation. And lastly the regency crisis of 1788 meant that Pitt could use this to gain favour with the king and gather support from his own party and draw it away from the opposition.
Response Paper # 3 The American Revolution can be described as a conservative revolution in that British America felt that Great Britain’s new taxes on the colonies were upsetting their rights as Britain’s and disrupting what had been a peaceful existence without any previous interference from Great Britain. even though there were small groups that wanted their freedom and rights that would be new to them; like slaves, women, Indians, and separatists; the American revolution was still a conservative revolution in which British America felt they were beginning to be treated as second class citizens as their rights were being taken away. For of their time in the colonies, Americans were left without much interference from the crown. During
