Essay Writeups for Test 1 (2/18/10) Essay 2: Discuss Tocqueville’s Analysis of Society French Aristocracy and Feudalism was a very unproductive way to run society. o People were unproductive because they must give most of their earnings to the aristocratic lord, and keep very little for themselves. o There was no hope in French society of ever leaving your birthright social class and so the middle class had bitter resentment towards the aristocracy and the peasants had bitter resentment for the feudal lords. o Only the elite had any power in the government and they used their power for their own good rather than for the good of the country and citizens. America had a system of democracy in which everyone worked hard because they were able to keep what they earned o Taxes were fair, people had the hope of upward mobility through hard work o Society was productive when given opportunity and hope. Because of this, Tocqueville knew the days of aristocracy in France were over. Essay 1: People’s Views on Sociology
