TOO MANY TAXES! YOU DON'T HAVE TO PAY TAXES, WHY DO WE HAVE TO?

I understand you've just come from Spain and wish to learn about our culture. Sister Carmen, there are 3 "estates" of French Society. The Clergy, the Nobles, and then everyone else at the bottom. There's also the king, of course, but everyone knows who has the REAL power. ME!
Now, who would the clergy pledge loyalty to, the Roman Catholic Church, or our new government?
I DO WHAT I WANT!
HAHAHA! DIE, GUARD! PRISONERS, BE FREE! THE GOVERNMENT IS SURELY OURS NOW!
Oh, dear. It may be time to start supporting the peasants. I might be next to die after they slaughter the rich.

Argh! GET OFF MY FOOT, PEASANT! NO RIGHTS OR SALVATION FOR YOU! Ew, what is that sme-A PIG! Disgusting! Nigel, where are you? Nigel, get the palanquin!
Cardinal de Richelieu, what do you think about the Rights of Man?
