According to the socialistic doctrine, in the Soviet times the French Revolution of 1789-1799 was considered to be a great example of the eternal fight of the poor labour people against the cruel exploiters. The masses of the people perceive the revolutionaries as “their own”, men of the people, heroes and patriots who selflessly fight against tyranny and social injustice. According to the liberal doctrine, the French Revolution of 1789-1799 is a “giant leap for mankind” on its way to democracy, freedom, equality and human rights. At the same time, several millions of its victims are “insignificant trifle” on the way to the great aim. In our time, the revolutions are actively inculcated in the third world countries, to destroy them finally. So, the troubles and horrors of the French Revolution, as the example of the destructive potential of any riot and uprising, should be rethought to avoid these mistakes in future and to protect the society from the self-liquidation.
