How did the glorious American and french revolution influence world wide political expectations for self government and individual liberty?
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.
