  1. Mr. Richey,

    Is it often argued that the failure of the revolutions of 1848 led to the disillusionment of artistic and literary romanticism?  I can see, albeit rather tenuously, how the revolutions of 1848 were enraptured with the ideals of emotionalism and spontaneity, which are two themes that I see throughout the forms of artistic expression during the romantic period.  Could the failure to manifest these dual forces — emotionalism and spontaneity — in a successful revolution therefore have contributed to the emergence of realism in art and the systematic, bureaucratically-oriented revolutions led by Cavour and Bismark?

  2. And all these failed socialists took refuge in America and here they succeeded under the pretense of freeing black slaves. Communism is kosher farce. It is a lie that says once socialism is perfected and running on all cylinders a Utopian Kingdom of Human made heaven is achieved. Truth is millions die and billionaires are made on blood money. Capitalism is created by the same thieves. They like to provide 2 choices.

    Thanks for giving us accurate history! I love history so much. If people understood history, then we would learn from our mistakes. History is so important.

  5. Hi Tom,

    I'm a big history addict, and I'm glad that I found your channel! 

    Thanks for discussing the 1848 revolutions. I'm wondering what similarity you think that the "Arab Spring" of 2011 has with the 1848 if any?

    Mainly the three generalization you made, i.e.:
    1. Several Arab states were swept of simultaneous revolutions.
    2. These revolutions generally failed.
    3. Saudi Arabia and Iran were not affected by these revolutions.

    Do you think that history is repeating itself in this context?

    Thanks,

    can you leave your research materials in the descriptions please? I would like to read a good comprehensive 1848 history. Any suggestions?

  7. I think it's also important to note that no revolution sprang in the Netherlands because the monarch at the time, King Willem II decided to fundamently alter the constitution to reform elections and effectivly reduce the power of the monarchy. Or else there probably would've been a revolution.

    More or less, the Netherlands has had the same structure for over 200 years now. It was also the first time we saw the use of what would later be called the polder model (a pragmatic recognition of pluriformity) Which is the way the Netherlands and sometimes Belgium make decicions on policies.

    1:44 The is another European country of with a very dim 48: Spain. There were some riots in Madrid and Seville during the Spring, but that's all. The Spanish 48 happened in 1854. The liberal revolutions in Spain did not follow the same rhythm as the rest of the Continent:
    -1812: proclamation of the first Spanish liberal constitution (and third oldest in the world, after France and the US).
    -1821-1823: the "three liberal years" (a pre-1830 aborted with the aid of the French conservatives…).
    -1833-1868: a watered down "liberal" parliamentary monarchy (and many liberal coup during those years).
    -1868-1874: the "six democratic years" (a post-1848?).
    -1874-1921: the Bourbon restoration, with a parliamentary monarchy with universal male vote (but doubtful democratic quality).
