French and Syrian War consisted of a very poor economy to start off with. They were organized differently, for example the French was divided into three groups, called Estates. Meaning some groups were more educated and wealthy than others, which of course determined what kind of jobs they would endure. The French also had an absolute monarch, King Louis XVI rule over their country, while Syria had a president rule their country. Meaning instead of getting divine rights from God, he got votes from the people of his country. Another thing these two wars didn't share in common, were the complaints they were having and what they were over. For example the French seemed to have a problem with how the votes were being counted, for each of the three estates. While in Syria, they complained about how their government weren't as religious or stable as they thought they'd be.
Despite all the differences that these two wars shared, there are many similarities as well. For example, the French had ordered troops to gather to help him regain power. Just like how Syria had formed groups to help the citizens gain power, and take some away from the rulers. Most wars usually start off with two groups of people disagreeing with each other, which then leads to a bigger issue, such as war. Both rulers of the French and Syria ended up dying during their reign. During the crisis stage, both countries had killed more than hundred thousands of people, innocent people.
- My research was the best part of this whole project. The challenging part was relating it to the French War, only because things have changed since then. We don't have absolute monarchs anymore, they're not as common as they were back in the day. Other than that I found all the violent scenes very interesting. They were so violent, you didn't know those type of actions were even taking place, or that things could possible get this bad. I chose this war, mainly because it was all over social media, especially when the kids were involved. Which was very heartbreaking because these children shouldn't have to go through this at such a young age. This project has really opened my eyes, to what really has been going on out there, and has shown me how fortunate we are, to have all these protests, and fights instead of our country getting bombed or blown up!
