King Louis XVI abolished the corvee and other injustices towards the poor people. But no, many things have not changed for the best in the world since the Revolutions, which encouraged violence as a means of political change.

I find in the concept of revolution a good idea and not violence. For this aspect I had answered in another topic as regarda the revolution: it means changement, a reversement ans not just violent action. gandhy has been a revolutionary, he has done of the India a free nation and he has not used violence.

I think reform is better than revolution.

this will probably sound incredibly cruel but i've never sympathised with the revolutionaries. the treatment of the royal family and the reign of terror was despicable. no human being should do that to another. the same with the russian one.

to send whole families to the guillotine just because of who they were, i just can't find it in my heart to feel the least bit sorry for them.

hope that doesn't offend, just my simple view on things. :oops:

i am with you there. I think its awful the peasents starved and all but the revolutionarys did some disgusting things and some of them too the peasents as well. Robespierre, Danton, Marat, Phillipe Egalite were all opportunist out for themselves.
