One of the pioneers of the French Village was Jacques Daniel Godin who was the grandchild of Gabriel Godin who was one of the founders of the Acadian village of “Pointe-Saint-Anne”.1 The French Village was situated about seventeen kilometres from what became the City of Fredericton, and is now part of Kingsclear.2 There are stills ruins of what seems to be an old church that burned to the ground, and also an old cemetery where we can find Acadian tombstones mixed with those of the Loyalists’.3 1.

...The Impacts of the French Revolution Latisha Wilson His 104 Professor Irene Geisler 6/17/13 The French Revolution was motivated by many origins. Many French people were displeased by the political, social and economic disorders, especially those of the third estate. The philosophers of the enlightenment changed publics’ points of view of government and society. Their goals were to expose and destroy the inequalities of the old order. The enlightenment ideals emphasized the idea of natural rights and equality. The enlightenment which was a period of where new ideas were spread throughout France often criticizing absolute government and the injustices of society. Enlightened thinkers believed that through reason humanity could advance into a new and better world. The Philosophers of the enlightenment were a vast political cause. They spread the idea that everyone should be equal. They tried to apply reason and the scientific method to laws that shaped human activities. John Locke believed that people have three natural rights. Life, liberty and property. The most impressive of the philosophers was the writer Voltaire. He fought for tolerance, reason, freedom of religious beliefs, and freedom of speech. Montesquieu wrote about separation of powers, dividing power among to separate branches of government. Jean Jacques Rousseau wrote in favor of human freedom. The enlightenment movement opened up citizen’s minds about positive change, respect for a person’s place...

French Revolution

...After viewing the PPT choose which aspect of the French Revolution you think was the most liberating, compare it to the quote by Mill on page 326 of the text and in four paragraphs (20 sentences minimum) answer the following two part question, 1). Would Mill embrace or reject the French Revolution, and 2) How would the French Revolution fit within the ideas of the Byronic Hero in the text?  The French Revolution was a period of upheaval due to the political, social and economic problems that the French faced during the 18th century. The country was ruled by the French Monarchy and was divided into three estates; the First Estate-the Clergy, the Second Estate- the Nobility, and the Third Estate-the common people and all others. Prior to the revolution France had no legislature and their finances were managed by Kings. The country was under fiscal crisis under their rule, primarily due to the First and the Second State’s exemption from most taxation and the Monarchy’s extravagant and gluttonous lifestyle. The Third Estate revolted as they grew weary of being burdened with the heavy taxation used to support the lavish lifestyles of the Monarchy and the aristocrats. During the Liberal Revolution the Third Estate wanted to be liberated. Their rights were being abused by the French Monarchy and they rebelled to be liberated. They wanted to be free from the Their demands included: Equality of rights and civil liberties; equality before the law; no special privileges for the......

...overthrow of a government or social order in favor of a new system. In history major changes take place often. One example of a major change was the French Revolution. The French Revolution occurred in France during the late 1700’s. The French people wanted to replace their Absolute government with a democracy. The ideas of the Enlightenment encouraged members of the 3rd Estate to revolt against Louis XVI. Revolution is change. The French Revolution is an example of change. There were many causes that led to the Revolution. One cause was the 3rd Estate wanted freedom. The 3rd Estate had a meeting to declare their equality within the French government. They produced a document known as the Declaration of the Rights of Man. Another cause of the Revolution was the need to lower the tax burden on the 3rd Estate. The 3rd Estate paid most of the taxes in France. A third cause of the Revolution was people wanted to have a democracy. In order to achieve this democracy the French people felt they had to execute Louis XVI by guillotine. There were many effects from the French Revolution. One immediate effect was instead of getting a democracy Napoleon took control of France. Napoleon was a dictator. However, over time France becomes a democracy. Today France is a democracy. One of the most important long term effects of the French Revolution was the inception of the Napoleonic Code, which influenced revolutions in other countries. It instilled the spirit of hope and freedom......

...The post has just arrived and in it a very nice surprise, the discovery that Jacques Seguela, one-time adviser to President Mitterrand, now close confidant of President and Madame Sarkozy (indeed he intoduced them), and something of a legend in French political communications, has dedicated his latest book to little old moi. With apologies for the missing accents here and in the French bits of the long posting which follows – the dedication to ‘Le Pouvoir dans la Peau‘ (Power in the skin) reads ‘A Alastair Campbell, mon spin doctor prefere’ (three missing accents in one word – mes excuses sinceres). So what did I do for this honour, you are asking? Well, perhaps the fact that he asked me to read his book, and write a ‘postface’ assessment both of his writing and of the issues he covers, and the fact that I said yes, has something to do with it. He says some blushmakingly kind things in his ‘preface to the postface’, which I will have to leave to French readers of the whole thing (published by Plon). But for the largely Anglophone visitors of this blog, I thought some of you might like to read the said ‘postface’ in English (apart from the bits where I quote direct from his book). I hope all those students who write asking for help with dissertations will find something quotable in it. Meanwhile I am off to Norway for a conference and a meeting with the Norwegian Labour Party. I’m looking forward to being in the country with the highest ‘human development index’ in......

The French Revolution

...Joshua Muench July 24, 2014 Western Civ Part 2 The French Revolution The French Revolution began in 1789 and ended in the late 1790’s with the ascension of Napoleon Bonaparte. This period in European history is one of the most bold and iconic periods in the west and through it came many things of significant historic value. During this period, French citizens radically changed and redesigned their country’s political landscape, a system of century old institutions such as absolute monarchy and the feudal system. This revolution first grabbed the attention of the world due to what it promised as its outcome, human rights and broad-based political participation. Its most famous slogan pledged “Liberty, Equality, and Fraternity” for all. (595) Like in the American Revolution, the French Revolution was brought on by the ideas of enlightenment, in specific, the ideas of popular sovereignty and inalienable rights. The movement played a pivotal role in shaping modern nations. Although it failed to achieve all of its goals and at times degenerated into violent bloodbaths, the French Revolution did however show the world something, the power inherent in the will of the people. The beginnings of the French Revolution can be looked at as starting shortly after the American Revolution due to the French’s involvement. The French’s involvement in the American Revolution was a costly one, and piled along with the frivolous spending of King Louis XVI, the country was on the......

French Revolution

...The French Revolution The people of France suffered many hardships before, during, and even after the French Revolution, which “was a period of major political and social change.”[1] Desperate for some relief to the adversity that many faced each day, groups began to meet and ideas began to form as to how the unhappy people could bring a reformation to the country that they believed was possible of greatness. Between the years of 1789 and 1815, France was a country ripe with upheaval in a series of trials and triumphs. To better illustrate the events that occurred during the French Revolution, one might attempt to examine three of the most important proceedings, which are the social background of French society leading up to the revolution, the ambitions of the people, and the various chaotic dictatorships and temporary solutions that France endured. French society consisted of three main groups of people who adhered to a hierarchical system each with different ideas of what their country should aspire towards. The First Estate, also known as members of the clergy, was one of the wealthier groups, as it was able to derive incredible amounts of money from the French administration by employing ministerial fees and by being absolved from payment of most taxes. The First Estate also possessed approximately ten percent of the land in France. The Second Estate, also known as the nobility, was fairly wealthy and governed an area of thirty percent. The Third......

...analysis volume from Exhibit 3 not equal to the 1,100,000 units aggregate break-even volume? 5. Is this type of analysis of any value? For what can it be used? Facts Bill French was a staff accountant for six months at Duo-Products Corporation. As a staff accountant he was reported directly to the company’s controller Wes Davidson and performed routine analytical work for him. French was the invited to an informal manager’s meeting. However, French wanted to present certain break-even data during the meeting. As part of his presentation he used the following information: plan capacity of 2 million per year, past year’s level of operation 1.5 million, average unit selling price of $7.20, total fixed cost of $2.97 million, and average unit variable cost $4.50. Taking this information into consideration, he calculated that the company needed to sell 1.1 million units to break-even. He also reasoned that 37.5% of sales of every sales dollar was left variable to cover fixed costs. Thus, the required sales to cover the fixed costs was of $7.92 million. During the presentation, John Cooper, was concerned that he guessed a considerable change in volume. French calculated that the sales department would boost sales by 20%, which would make the plant work at 90% capacity. In addition, Fred Williams interrupted French by saying that shelling was not taken into consideration when the plant is at 90% capacity. He also mentioned that even though the plant was at a total of 90%......

The French Revolution

...The French Revolution: The French Revolution was a time for spreading out and finding freedom for the French. It was a way for the French to recreate their government to give some kind of equality for their people. Though for woman in that time period it was still a struggle for equal rights during the rest of country’s upheaval. The French Revolution was caused by a downfall in the royal family, having to do with serious financial issues. King Louis XVI call in the French Estates General in 1788, to help with the financial crisis the country was going through (Doyle). The Estate General was divided into three estates: First Estate representing the upper class, the Second Estate representing middle class, and the Third Estate representing the lower class. There was one vote for each estate, and in the past the Second Estate and the First Estate had joined together to defeat any proposals for reform from the Third Estate. The Third Estate was determined that would not be so in the current assembly and pushed for the vote of each representative to be counted as a separate vote. They were not able to agree on a voting method.
