The Glorious Revolution, American Revolution, and French

Revolution all challenged the institutions that shaped the

political structure of the world, each attempting to establish

democratic principles of government, including limiting the power

of the government and extending rights to the governed. Although

each revolution occurred in a different time and place, all three

were based on the ideas that government derives its power from the

people it governs and government exists to protect its citizens who

have certain rights that cannot be denied.
