The initial impulse of the French revolution was destructive. For those who lived through all, or even part, of these vast upheavals, the shock was overwhelming. Maximilien Robespierre was a proud disciple of the enlightenment and declared that no political writer had foreseen this revolution. Robespierre (1758-1794) was one of the leaders of the Committee of Public Safety, the effective governing body of France during the most radical phase of the revolution. The leaders of this revolution attempted, perhaps more than any other revolutionary leaders before or since, to totally transform human society in every way. (Supreme Being) Although Robespierre began with patriotic intent he still was the face of the Reign of Terror and was viewed as being a radical person.
The Extent to Which Tudor Rebellions Have Similar Causes Tudor rebellions were caused by one or more of the following factors: dynastic, political, religious, and social and economic. There was an element of both similarity and continuity in the period as most of the rebellions were politically motivated starting with Warbeck’s rebellion in 1491 until the end of the period with Essex’s rebellion in 1601. This displays clear political motives across the period. During the reign of Henry VII, many of the rebellions were dynastically motivated with a series of challenges from pretenders to the throne, Simnel and Warbeck and rebellions due to heavy taxation; Yorkshire and Cornish anti tax riots.
In American history everyone believes that the American Revolution would begin in 1775. But many would argue that the American Revolution had started even earlier than that. As the American Revolution would not spring up overnight, but throughout a series of events that would build tension caused by different views on government, and conflicting interests between the British and their colonies on the western hemisphere.
Just about any country that one can name has some history of civil unrest, class issues, rioting in the streets, and outright warfare. These patterns of behavior are common denominators for most civilization in the world. The names, faces, and places may change, but the motivations are generally the same, because of the need for change and the willingness to do whatever is necessary to achieve it. In contrast to the United States, which was in the process of freeing itself from British colonial rule, France was working to free itself from royal absolutism. This period is historically known as the French Revolution. Many scholars do not agree on the chronology of the French Revolution; some scholars suggest that the Revolution took place between 1789 to 1799 while others feel that it did not end until Napoleon lost power in 1815. To better understand the history of the French Revolution it is necessary to discuss the causes, major events, significant figures, and the outcomes associated with these political developments. Without this uprising, that changed the face of the entire country and influenced local political life in many countries in Europe, in all likelihood the France we know today would never have existed.
The American Revolution was undeniably the most pivotal time period in respect to United States History, but who was really to blame for initiating the conflict? While both the British politicians and American colonists shared the blame for the kindling of the revolution, one party was certainly more at fault than the other: the British. Through short-term causes of taxation and incommodious trade acts, and long-term causes of salutary neglect and involvement in the burdensome French & Indian War, the British politicians proved to ultimately be the most responsible for igniting the Revolutionary War.
From 1524 to 1526 peasant revolts were occurring throughout the German states. Many causes and responses brewed out of these revolts. One cause is from religion issues (1,3,6) , Luther’s idea of equality. Another cause is the peasant gaining power (2,8,9). As a result of these causes came out response, the most common response was riots and chaos (5,11,7). These revolts would end in thousands of rebel deaths and others are also killed.
As our discussion post provided this week, the colonists responded with rebellion because of the new acts that were imposed upon them by the British (Schultz, K., 2013). Their attempt to reform the American colonies contributed to the growth of the Revolutionary movement because the British tried to enforce stricter policies and laws (Schultz, K. M., 2013). The British wanted to tighten the policies over the colonial officials so that it would reduce the corruption, the British wanted control over the area of land that the settlers occupied, and they wanted to raise revenue by taxing goods. Although the British were adamant about their purpose, the colonist believed that rebelling against them would help in receiving their independence.
The government did not respond to their economic troubles, and the farmers, feeling ignored by their government, decided to protest against it. Several farmers were agitated, and decided to come together. Meetings were called and an organized rebellion was organized
During the earlier years of history, people from Britain came over to the new world, or what is now known as the United States due to overpopulation. Britain began unfairly taxing the British colonists in the new world to raise money for the costs of the French and Indian war. This unfair taxation, which ultimately was stripping the colonists of their right to self-govern, caused them to want to declare their independence. The Americans established a government separate from the British one due to the previous overpowerment inflicted by the British government. The Americans used their enlightenment beliefs to define the new nation.
The Church changed with Martin Luther’s returning. The German princes who supported Luther took control of Catholic churches in their own territories. This caused the formation of separate churches under supervision of the government. The Peasant Revolts, in 1524, helped Luther. Peasants thought that social issues should be changed like church issues had been. 100,000 people ended up being killed, leading many to go back to the Catholic Church. In 1555 the Peace of Augsburg was put into effect. The Peace of Augsburg was an agreement to accept the division of Christianity of Germany. The German princes could choose whether they wanted to accept Lutheranism or just stay Catholic. The people of had no choice.
During the revolt, not all peasants were going around and causing destruction. Some of them were trying to come to a much more peaceful agreement. One of the main groups that had this goal was the Peasants Parliament.
According to Leonhard von Eck, the peasants began the revolt in the name of Martin Luther and his belief, Lutheranism. He argues that they were following Lutheran teaching to inhibit the impeding cruelty of the nobility, and therefore their actions were religiously justified (Doc. 1). Similar to Doc. 3, this document states that the peasants wanted equality. Doc. 1 sets forth the peasants’ beliefs in the word of God and the Gospel giving them the right to repress the nobility, whereas Doc. 3 gives their claim on Christ’s desires and their need for release from serfdom. In agreement with von Eck, Sebastian Lotzer expresses that the peasants were obligated to rebel to have a mutual pact with the nobility. They demanded equal treatment and in conclusion, like before, they were justifying their deeds as their right (Doc. 2). The fact that Lotzer, a lay preacher, would demand their rights from the nobility is understandable considering that the peasants believed God gave them the right to do so. They believed it was God’s hope that they rebel against a group or society that was doing them wrong. In accordance with Lotzer’s argument,
Farmers were once known for being able to do everything themselves. They grew their own food and sewed their own clothes. People often yearn for the old days and complain about so many people living in cities. Many farmers had to give up their farms and move to the cities, because of something that happened in the late nineteenth century.
America’s government is known for the strongest government as well as the strongest army. Somethings that might lead to rebellion with the citizens not feeling the sense of security . If americans feel like the government is using propaganda against them or terror tatics they are going to rebel. In the world police brutality is a major issue as well terrorist attacks known as isis. Some may call it a rebellion and others may call it a revolution. There is a thin line between rebellion and a revolution because some people have different motives. A rebellion is a act of violence against the government , a revolution is a non violent forcible overthrow of the government. If I were to choose to be apart of either one my decision would base off
Rome, the city of love, is a dreamed destination for many. Yet beneath this picturesque spot lies an adamant root from the past that dominated a certain era in the history of the world. Dating from some 500 B.C., Rome stamped its territory as an example for many. As a matter of fact, the Roman was under the influence of monarchy until the Patricians and the Plebians fought their way to freedom (Morey W.C., n.d.). That’s when the disparities between those two classes got highlighted. Today we will attempt to accentuate those differences politically and economically speaking and we will prolong our thinking on the emergence of the Plebians revolt.
