No, of course we don't see the FRrnch Revolution as a success for the simple reason that it wasn’t. It had to wait a long time to be successful. To claim that Americans don’t understand this is quite disingenuous. We know what asuccessful revolution was because we had gone through one. Saying that we don’t understand the complexities of European civilization is just plain nonsense. Have a revolution, no problem, but then don’t destroy it immediately afterwards and replace it with French Aristocracy 2.0. That’s how you betray a revolution, not make one.It directly established a liberal society. Democracy would have been nice but has nothing on the fundamental shift in societal model. The Revolution effectively got rid of feudalism.
Again, you simply don't seem to realize how profound these changes were. And by the look of it because no one in the history of the American colonies or the US has even encountered them and so have never had to wrap their heads around the implications.
