      It’s beyond “oversimplified” at that stage and rather between blatantly false and caricatural. Among lots of things: - “taxing the poor”: no, in fact there was a first rebellion inside the nobility by 1787-1788 because the king wanted to start taxing them. Then the heavy lifting of new taxes was on the bourgeoisie, technically in the third estate but often times richer than the first two estates. And FYI the tax on salt and the clerical dime had been created centuries before the revolution - Then on the estate general: it is not a government. There was a government, centralized around the king and also localisés within the regions. The estates was the best way to change the tax regime - on Louis XVI being a fat coward: that is just blatant propaganda from during the e revolution. He was a ruler and in fact not a bad one. Yes he may not have been the most extrovert one and his counsel was strongly divided on what to do with the enlightenment but he was a ruler. Etc etc

    38. Karting Man

      In case you're interested, there is a 2-parts French film, "La Révolution Française" (Les années lumières & Les années terribles) in which you follow Georges Danton and another revolutionary, Camille Desmoulins, from the birth of the contestation until the final head-chopping of Robespierre. It might be available on Dailymotion and I always found it really entertaining.

    39. Mustafiz

      Peasants:*exist* Tax collector:Aaaaaand, you'll have to pay a tax for that!

    40. Polandball Films

      How many steps you walk everyday? 10,000 there’s a tax for that.

      Prince Louis Capet ? the name of the french royal familly and "de France" and the futur Louis XVI was only called by her crown prince title: the Dauphin, herited from the purchase of the Dauphiné...i pretty sure your not even know about what i talking since your know nothing about history. And at 1:50 is not even Louis XVI but his brother Louis XVIII which was restored after Napoleon's abdication...i can't go furer, it's unwatchable, like all your videos. Oversimplified ? indeed and full of innacurencies and fake facts, clearly made by an american for americans.

Me: Are... are you describing the US on accident? I mean... if you oversimplify it just a "tiny" bit, the US is basically a two party oligarchy.(By "tiny", I mean it basically flat out is.)
