Why does Sieyes believe that the Third Estate is the one that sustains socity and why does he later call the third estate the whole?

Abbe believes that the Third Estate has everything needed to govern and run the country, but is held back by the privileges of the nobles and clergy. He also believes that if there was no clergy or nobility, then the Third Estate could be so much more. The Third Estate provides all of France with the essentials (food etc.), whilst the other two Estates do not work nor pay taxes, simply 'sitting back' and letting the Third Estate do all the work. Also, the Third Estate already consists of 97% of the whole of France so if they were as privileged as the other two Estates, it could be the 'whole' of France. Abbe blames Louis for all of the Third Estates problems. They suffered many of these burdens due to his actions. For example, he made France go into war while already having financial problems. This resulted in more taxes (only paid by the Third Estate), and the peasants struggled to survive. He betrayed one of the ideals of the French Revolution, liberty. The Third Estate were allowed no freedom, even the bourgeoisie who were the privileged ones. Louis was charged guilty for high treason and executed by the guillotine.
