Imperialist rule has been overthrown in some colonial and dependent countries, and in others it has suffered heavy blows and is tottering. This inevitably weakens and shakes the rule of imperialism in the metropolitan countries. The victories of the people’s revolutions in Asia, Africa and Latin America, together with the rise of the socialist camp, sound a triumphant paean to our day and age. The storm of the people’s revolution in Asia, Africa and Latin America requires every political force in the world to take a stand. This mighty revolutionary storm makes the imperialists and colonialists tremble and the revolutionary people of the world rejoice.

Anti-government cartoons in the 1790s often included the most scabrous, even treasonable, representations of King George III. All threats of revolution were taken seriously.
Chris Trujillo Mr. Robinson AP US History 10-3-2011 DBQ Essay: Alterations between Britain and America In the aftermath of the French and Indian War many relationships between Britain and the American colonies were changed drastically, especially in the areas of politics, economics, and ideology. The political side of Britain became more oppressive of the colonies, the economics in the colonies became much worse due to severe taxation, and Colonists developed and freer more united ideological ways. All of these issues between politics and economics caused the colonies to develop the “rebellious” and independent ideology they did. Because of the debt that Britain found itself in after the war, the British felt it appropriate that the colonists should help to repay the debt, due to Britain believing that they fought the war for the colonists with no assistance. The colonies however, felt that they fought the war side by side with the British, causing the two groups to have different political ideas.

The third estate wanted vengeance for these centuries of oppression. Due largely to the Philosophes, the third estate rebelled on July the 14th of 1789, with the attack on the Bastille. This lead to widespread violence and raids by the third estate. The best example of this vengeance though comes from Robespierre and the “Reign of Terror”. One issue that can't go without mention is the radical ideas of this revolution and the people of the Enlightenment period.
