What revolution had the greatest impact on world history?
The American because it showed the world that political revolutions could succeed.
The neolithic revolution
Agree, though I lean to the ideological statements with in the Declaration of Independence & the Constitution.
Full agreement with both the above…couldn’t have expressed it better!
The Industrial Revolution.
Printing press – made information available to to the masses revolutionising the distribution of power. “Knowledge is power”
I AM TEMPTED TO SAY THE AMERICAN
BUT I THINK IT WAS THE FRENCH-BESIDE THE OBVIOUS
IT INDIRECTLY GAVE BIRTH TO GERMAN NATIONALISM
AND INFLUENCED THE RUSSIANS HELPING TO LEAD TO THE 1917 REVOLUTION BOTH EVENTS HELPED TO THRUST AMERICA UPON THE STAGE AND LEAD US TO WORLD POWER
The French Revolution.
It was more influent in every aspect that the American Revolution, which is more a war of Independence anyway.
Also, the ideals of the American “Revolution” come from the Enlightenment, an European (mostly French) movement, which motivated the French Revolution too.
I agree the while idea of “liberty, equality, fraternity” and the ideas that came out of the French revolution have a massive impact on the world. All current political ideologies have been affected, especially the most prominent one in the western world – liberalism.
I think non of the above are correct I think it is the Battle Of Hastings
How is that a revolution? and why? out of curiousity
yeah…I agree with Bruce, i dont get why you think the Battle of Hastings is a revolution?! O.O
I think it was the French…although the French was pretty much encouraged by the success of the American Revolution, the French Revolution practically influenced the world today more than any other revolution so far…and in my opinion, it is inspiring that it was the desperate need for the people to grow in every sense of the word that they chose to voice out and revolt against the French Monarchy at that time…which we could totally relate to even till the present. :)_
The Industrial!! Not everything in this world revolves around America.
If you want a Political Revolution The Glorious Revolution of 1688 which stripped the crown of many of its rights allowing Parliament to make laws which until then was a rubber stamp to the Kings wishes.This in the fullness of time was copied by many other Nations leading to Democracy as we no it today.
all are wrong world war 2
now ia can say egyptian revolution
i can’t agree more on what queenOf_death1 had said.. the egyptian revolution is the greatest biggest and most peaceful revolution in the known history till now.. more than 20 million was in the streets of egypt the rest was protecting there properties from thugs and after it ended the fire spread across the world to do the same as peaceful as it was.
I’m personally leaning more towards the French Revolution. The French Revolution spawned most of the revolutions in Europe thanks to their success. If it weren’t for the Enlightenment period caused by the French, many ideas that we have today wouldn’t be realized such as Democracy, Republic thinking, etc.
If you count the transition from the roman kingdom to the roman republic, i would pick that. It lead to the roman domination of alot of european countries. It Led to widespread christianity, and latin(created english spanish, and french). Also led to the english empire which, as we all should know, led to the colonization of the US of A. All this combined leads us to the world we have today.
why do you think it was important to the writers of the Constitution that the powers of government were divided between the federal and state governments?
Eureka Stockade in Ballarat in the colony of Victoria December 1854.
It ushered in democracy in the Australian colonies and led to full lindependence in 1901 with the formartion of the federation of Austr;lia.
Otherwise, we would still be like the American colonieds pre- 1776.
The 2 Egyptian revolutions!! Google earth wrote that 32.000,000K went to all the streets to show their anger and their hate to the terrorism (MUSLIMS BROTHERHOOD) the 2 revolutions showed everyone what’s peace and democracy because christians were fasting with muslims and even kids went to place Tahrir and Al-Ethehadeya to show their anger to everyone and everyone confirmed that the egyptian revolution (30-6-2013) is THE BIGEST REVOLUTION IN HISTORY!!!
ALL ARE WRONG THE GREAT REVOLUTION IS ALGERIAN REVOLUTION AGAINST FRENCH 1830 – 1962
Indian Struggle for Independence
since it proved that a political revolution against greatest kingdom ever can be peaceful and successful at the same time!!
Revolution againts queen of England 1947….100 years of fight that lead to creation of Pakistan n india.even the french forces came to support muslims n hindus.
We fought against the whole world.
the haitian revolution. thanks to them, we can now have black nations all over the world
Has nobody mentioned the Neolithic/agricultural Revolution? By introducing the large-scale growing of crops and animal domestication, it moved humankind from living mainly in hunter-gatherer societies to establishing permanent settlements.
The American Revolution and very close 2nd is the Texas Revolution, matter of fact you can not have one without the other because Texas Revolution COMPLETED America!
Of course the American Revolution comes first but without the Texas Revolution America would not have been COMPLETE as she is today because the Texas Revolution gave America the all the western states, NM, AZ, CA, CO, UT, NV and MT and then I would even say OR, WS, ID and WY which intern lead to America acquiring AK and HI and all Pacific territories. I know its a stretch but if we did not have all of the west then why purchase AK and HI back then it would not have seem reasonable!!!!
