Storyboard Text

  • The Best of Times: Reforms of the National Assembly
  • The Best of Times: Robespierre
  • The Best of Times: Declaration of the Rights of Man and of the Citizen
  • The National Assembly was considered one of the best items of the revolution due to its democratic reform. The reforms of the National Assembly include the abolition of nobility, and seperation of power. This fufilled the ideas of equality which stemmed from the enlightenment. Specifically John Locke and Rousseau. This started France on the path to democracy.
  • The Worst of Times: Marat
  • Maximilien Robespierre is considered one of the fathers of the French Revolution. He argued for rights of the poor and was against war with Austria. He campaigned for equality amongst people. This is consistent with the ideas of many philosophers of the enlightenment, specifically Voltaire who was also against war, and John Locke whom believed all were equal.
  • The Worst of Times: The Reign of Terror
  • The Declaration of the Rights of Man and of the Citizen stay true to the enlightenment due to its individualistic nature that is consistant with Rousseau . The clearly stated seperation of powers is reflective of Montesqieu whom also influenced the Declaration of Independence.
  • The Worst of Times: Napoleon
  • Marat is widely considered to be a driving force behind the revolution but his radical ideas in his newspaper incited the September Massacre. His role in the violence of the revolution goes against the most basic enlightened idea of life. (John Locke)
  • The Reign of Terror directly challenged the ideas of the enlightenment. These ideas such as Life, Liberty, and Equality were directly violated with the rash and unjust executions of thousands of people. The idea of democracy was put to rest with no one having a fair trial. The idea of freedom of speech was infringed upon due to the killing of opposers.
  • Napoleon went against the enlightenment through his dictatorship, this opposed the basic ideas of seperation of powers, democracy, and rights of the people. He also went against the enlightenment with his senseless wars. Voltaire was opposed to wars for good reason; they result in senseless deaths of the people.
