  1. It depends from what point of view. From the point of view of the development of society, many (not all) revolutions are a leap in development. It is the engine of progress that replaced one system with another, moved society from feudalism to bourgeoisie and capitalism, and replaced autocracy with democracy. The Great French Revolution had an impact on the development of not only France but also the whole world.�

    But if you look from the point of view of the state and the economy, then revolutions most often lead to a regression of the economy and a crisis of the state apparatus. This is an inevitable consequence of radical changes. The most striking example is the October Revolution, the negative impact of which was many times greater than the positive impact on the development of society.

    So, each revolution should be considered separately.

  2. Since the history textbook is written by the winner, it is natural that people mostly think so. After all, it is impossible to write that the revolution was a direct result of a part of the elite holding their ground in the upcoming reforms, which led to radical steps to change the leadership by force, which automatically led to the collapse of the legitimacy of the government and the paralysis of the nominal system of the state. As a result, not the same people who were going to come to power at all. No one will write it. Although this is exactly how all the “revolutions” in the world happened, are happening and will continue to happen. Simply a counterrevolutionary rebellion that ended in success and threw the real social revolution far into the past

  3. The revolution was not a step forward, but rather a step backward, as state institutions temporarily collapsed, the legal field was destroyed.�

    To quote Thomas Carlyle:�

    It is very dangerous when �nation, dropping his political and �public setting, �turned �for �her �in �funeral �shroud, �becomes transcendental and have to track your wild trails through the chaotic New, where the power still does not distinguish �permitted and prohibited from crime and �virtue �raging �together, inseparable, �in �the power of the passions, �horror and wonder!
