Transcript of REVOLUTIONS
The general context during 1848 created a disenchanting way of thinking about the Industrial Revolution and the utopia of liberalism. In fact we have a deck of nations under poverty, colonizers, tyranny, and hunger that took advantage from the international movement that came up that year. In 1848 Marx and Engels published "The Communist Manifesto" in London, this document fits perfectly with the ideas of the worker class, that was followed and later manipulated by the bourgeois.
COLLAPSE, LEGACY, MEMORY AND CONSECUENCES
During 1848 Europe was facing several new troubles that came with industrialization, such like unemployment, hunger, salubrity crisis, insecurity, overpopulated cities, etc. The Industrial Revolution consequences were added to the depressing indifference from the governors of the absolute monarchies.

XIX CENTURY STREET VIEW
The Industrialization of production brought a lot of rural areas population into the cities. The bourgeoisie didn't accept this with happiness, therefore they segregated the new immigrants making unskilled laborers toiled from 12 to 15 hours per day when they had work, living in squalid, disease-ridden slums. It was easy for Marx and other revolutionary thinkers to create a following with the inhuman conditions that lower classes suffer. Urban workers had no choice but to spend half of their income on food, which consisted of bread and potatoes. As a result of harvest failures, food prices soared and the demand for manufactured goods decreased, causing an increase in unemployment. Artisans and unemployed workers usually destroyed industrial machines when their social demands were neglected.
Feudalism legacy was still alive in XIX century's Europe, and there were harvest shortages all around the continent. Farmers and their families were starving while the aristocrats, they lords, were focused on accumulating lands, crops and farms across their nation as their were thinking how to replace their servants with the new invntions from the Industrial Revolution

As we have discused the 1848 events in group, we have all agree that the revolutions are mostly a direct consequence of the pure capitalist though and the negligence of nobles a employers that the Industrial Revolution brought with the prosperity of economy. The 1848 Revolutions show that the Industrial Revolution not only had technological and economical consequences, it also brought a popular ask for democracy, because the worker class asked for their rights to not be abused and to be treated as people deserve in a dignal job, the bourgeoisie influenced them to eliminate the monarchical absolutism. We also extract the Revolution's social consequence, people felt poorer and cities got overpopulated, this bad situation and their hunger to rise in the society made them highly influenced by growing ideas as communism, popular liberalism and socialism. People experienced substantially changes in their lifestyle and in the European nation's idiosyncrasy, adding that the art and culture started to become purely nationalist. As a general conclusion we think that XIX century leaders and governors didn't consider the horizons that the Industrial Revolution rushed, the worker class suffered the worst treatment ever and a deep rancor between them and their employers was born as the form of contant claiming for humanitarian conditions and organizations like the syndicates. In the case of France the social discomfort finally removed the tyrannical monarchy but, like repeating the story, they uprised another dictator called Napoleon Bonaparte. Aristocracy began their downfall process to be replace by a smarter high bourgeoisie composed by rich magnates, with a great power over economy whom supported democracy.
COLLAPSE OF THE

The "March Revolution" in German states was propelled by workers and the bourgeoisie to demand national unity, freedom of press and better conditions of life and work for the german people.

The "February Revolution" was sparkled by the suppressors of monarchy and nobles in charge. This revolution was drived by nationalists and republic ideals among the French general public, who believe that the people should rule themselves and must be treated well by their employers. It ended monarchy in France, by abdicating king Louis-Philippe, and led the creation of the French Second Republic.

Revolutionaries saw themselves weaker than the reactionary forces, composed by the national and imperial armies, even the worker class lost their enthusiasm of getting human treatment in their jobs.

That is because the government was a step ahead and with the reform 1832 they pacified any democratic claiming.

In Brazil, the "Praieira revolt", a movement in Pernambuco, lasted from November 1848 to 1852. Unresolved conflicts left over from the period of the regency and local resistance to the consolidation of the Brazilian Empire that had been proclaimed in 1822 helped to plant the seeds of the revolution.
