    It demonstrates that people will only tolerate tyranny for so long. People might not directly govern themselves, but any leader weather it be a king or president must be conscious of the masses. John Locke has a great deal of insight on this subject check out his “Two Treatises of Government”. Hope it helps

    The French Revolution? No. The French Revolution ended up having the Year of Terror, as thousands were executed, including the Royal Family, with some outrageous accusations as well. It wasn’t until Napoleon Bonaparte took over that peace was finally re-installed. As well as reconnecting with the Roman Catholic Church.
