Historical Tourism back to 1789 Paris
Gamehertz Editor Note:
French Revolution happened during 1789-1799. After experiencing years of drought which destroy much of agricultural production, prices of staple good such as flour and bread went to a level that commoners could not afford. It was estimated that every worker spend 90% of their wage just to afford bread. With their livelihood at stake, the French could no longer tolerate the monarchy whereby the influential and nobles does not have to pay tax, while the poor have to pay heavy taxes on the failing economic system.
It was the first fight for democracy in the Continent with neighbouring countries controlled by monarchy system. French revolution are based on 3 ideas, liberty, equality and fragternity. Although the ideolegoies were good, the revolution took to a radical turn in 1792 when Maximillean Robosphere was in position leading the revolution. He convinced and won the vote of constitute by a narrow win to guillotined King Louis XVI and severed his head in the public. Historian agreed King Louis XVI is a good but weak king.
Thereafter Maxiimillean started the Reign of Terror when he used violence against violence with those suspected of against the revolution. More than 300,000 arrested, 17,000 guillotined on public executions (imagine daily public executions with people head severed) and 10,000 died in prison without trails. While democracy was in the wrong hand, ultimately the revolution failed as stability and order could not be restored. Napolean Bonarpte came about and consolidated the ideals of revolution under a military dictatorship restoring peace and order through the famous Napoleonic Code which form the basis of modern law.
