At this time in history the King had absolute control and exercised a heavy tax on the lower class and expected a great deal of work with no ability to have a voice. It is because of these actions by the king and society that the people demanded liberty, creating riots, storming’s, and battles in an effort to change their lifestyle. There are many influences for the desire for equality found in the French Revolution. Originally it is seen at the beginning as the people were separated into classes with very different expectations and responsibilities. Those with a nobility and clergy titles had fewer taxes and lighter burdens; whereas those placed in the commoner class were the workers, providers and
These reforms made a significant change to the government as a weakened sense of autocracy replaced the traditional span of control the Tsar ruled over, due to freedom of serfs which ultimately creates opposition. Further consequences of war faced by the government can be illustrated in the assassination of Alexander 2nd and the severe social unrest following the Russo-Japanese war. These protests are suggested to be the beginning point of the 1905 revolution. This caused extreme damage to the government as it questioned the strength of leadership and citizens became more and more critical, eventually leading to further reforms and the initiation of changing the way Russian government was formatted. However, it can be argued that
In fact the groups within the right such as the Freikorps and consul organisation showed an increasing amount of violence because of their lack of support on democracy, which of course created a tremendous threat to the Weimar Republic. To an extent one could argue that the economy was a major threat to the stability of the Weimar Republic in the period 1919-1923 due to the severe reparation payments. The Treaty of Versailles stipulated that Germany had to pay reparations for the damage which was caused in WW1. The poor leadership and economic problems consequently led to a German defeat. In 1921, the total amount of reparations was set at 269 billion gold marks.
In what ways was the American Revolution, revolutionary? The American Revolution was an inevitable event that changed the 13 colonies for the best. The American Revolution had multiple causes such as the French and Indian war and the harsh British tax laws that followed it. One result of the American Revolution would be the Treaty of Paris, which followed the French and Indian war, of 1763.The Treaty of Paris ended the American Revolution and formally recognized the United States as an independent nation. It also led to a number of changes in English policy, which sparked multiple conflicts with the American colonists and contributed to an increasingly hostile change in the economy.
Factors of the American Rebellion After the French and Indian War, the relationship between the colonists and the British Parliament began to deteriorate. Many factors influenced the idea of patriotism and these factors eventually resulted in a rebellion by the colonists in 1775. The most important factor that eventually led to this rebellion was the Parliament taxing the colonists. The colonists were enraged by the fact that they were being taxed without being represented in the Parliament and were also furious of the fact that the taxes that were being enforced were not just. The 2nd most important factor that led to this rebellion was that they were being restricted of civil liberties.
The King’s strategy of military force was believed to be necessary due to the third estate rebelling and breaking away from the Estates-General in June 1789. Members of the third estate had formed the National Assembly on 17th June and had claimed that it represented most of the nation and had the right t manage its own affairs and decide taxation. It is clear to see from this that the government were losing control, so one can see why Louis responded by trying to assert his power with military action. By the beginning of July 20,000 troops occupied Paris and would have threatened and worried its citizens. Therefore one can assume that this created the perfect conditions for revolutionary action in Paris.
The French and Indian War altered relationships and created tensions between Britain and its American colonies. The political relation strained because of the laws like the Proclamation of 1763 that angered colonist. As a result of political laws like the Proclamations and Acts, the economy went is to poverty and depression. Ideological was seen by the colonist to be Independent. The French and Indian War made the British council establish new laws.
3 factors will be discussed other than the war, the famine in Russia and the strikes which turned into riots before the war and the big part which all strikes and riots built into, Bloody Sunday. Secondly Tsar Nicholas II and his actions during the war and the effects it ricocheted back to the fatherland and the support of Rasputin. Lastly, Russia’s involvement in the war and the impact on the war front and the impact on the general public. Prior to the war Russia was in a very volatile state and was a ticking time bomb just waiting to explode. This was a result of the build up of resentment towards the Tsar and his inability to listen to the pleas of the people and his ‘go to gun’ attitude.
The reparations imposed on the country under the Weimar Republic caused many political problems within the nation. The Weimar Republic was associated with failure in WW1 since it had signed the Treaty of Versailles that had ended the war, this in turn caused a strong sense of unpopularity towards the government from the people of Germany, as it was believed that the Republic had ended the war too early and that Germany could have fought on. This left the Germans feeling humiliated, along with the harsh limitations on the German armed forces and also the concept that Germany and it's allies was to blame for starting the war, known as the War Guilt Clause.In addition, when the German people discovered that the Weimar Republic failed in making the Treaty fair towards them, the government became even more unpopular. They people were outraged at the fact that the government had accepted these conditions, despite the fact that there was not a lot else the Republic could do. This added to the already high level of unpopularity of the government, after signing the armistice to the end the war, consequently resulting in the government being named the 'November Criminals'.
However during the middle ages this all seemed to come crashing down, due to civil wars and peoples push for power over the entire Empire. During this time most of the reforms and finding in education seemed to have been lost or destroyed by leaders. By doing this the entire Roman Empire fell and was destroyed. It would take more time after this to relearn everything lost. The Roman Empire went from an elite civilization down into a bunch of warring people fighting for land.
