    Default Do you know?

    Do you know? Beyond, the brief summaries of what your education and/or Internet encounters have taught you?

    A French style revolution; was most likely avoided in England due to the efforts of just one individual?

    What I'm speaking of is a scenario where 4 in 5 where living at poverty level.

    Can a single one of you name that man...?

    I'll even give you two simple clues, obvious stated look at England. Specifically the 1500's, mid to later...

    A French style revolution was avoided in many countries.

    On the other hand, the English Revolution was not avoided, and was quite bloody by itself. BTW, Robespierre considered Cromwell a role model, comparable to Caesar.

    Well, maybe it was not the French Revolution, but the English Civil War still happened and it was extremely messy and chaotic.

    But you are right that the actions of one person can have a big impact. I am not sure off the top of my head who you are referring to, but could it be the person who outed the Guy Fawkes gunpowder plot? (Though I think that was early 1600s moreso).

    William Pitt, Prime Minister, cracked down on English radicals during the French Revolution.
