T9 Socials Wheels of Revolution Post
Social- After discovering that there was no vengeance from god, the people throughout the country began to lose their belief in the Divine Right of Kings.
Technological- Parliament developed a strategy and created their own cavalry of their own, instructed to stick together after a charge against the Royal troops so they could quickly turn and strike back.
Economical- Farmers began to own more of the land they worked for, which created capitalist farms.
Political- Rump Parliament chose to remove monarchy and the house of lords.
- A connection between the English Civil War and our current present era is when the Supreme Court rules out Donald Trump’s decision to ban all refugee programs in the United States, and decline muslim immigration. This is a connection because in the English Civil War, the Parliament rules out the king and makes their own decisions, which is what the Supreme Court did here after deciding that Trump’s actions were very racist and unacceptable. In this scenario, Trump would be King Charles I and the Supreme Court would be Parliament. For older events, the English Civil War is similar to both the French and American Revolutions because in all three, common people fought in the war, in all three a monarchy was overthrown. Additionally, in all three the military leader ended up leading the country afterwards. For example in the English Civil War, Oliver Cromwell ended up leading, in the American Revolution it was George Washington, and in the French Revolution it was Napoléon Bonaparte.
- My wheel represents justice for the Parliament, whereas things don’t turn out as well for king Charles I. The majority of the country is served justice from the tyranny of Charles I, so for the Parliamentarians and many citizens, the war ends in justice. The conflict is resolved in the end, as Parliament beheads Charles I in the end, putting an end to Charles I’s tyranny. The consequences of the event were both positive and negative. On the positive side, the lower class people were happy as they got more power, farmers were happier as they got more control and power over their land, many people around the country were happy as they got more freedom and didn’t have to pay Charles I’s ridiculous taxes, and lastly Parliament was happy as they won the war and gained more power and control over England. On the negative side, Charles I’s supporters must’ve been sad they lost, and there were over 200,000 casualties that were the result of the conflict, so lots of people lost their loved ones during the English CIvil War.
