After 1815, reactionary forces were particularly successful Metternich played important role “I keep an eye on everything.

Defense of the country Police protection of the individual Construction and maintenance of public works too expensive for individuals to undertake Maximum economic freedom brings about the greatest good to the greatest number of people 4/12/2017 John 3:16

49 Economic Liberalism The case against government interference enhanced by Thomas Malthus Wrote, “Essay on the Principles of Population” Unchecked population increases at fast rate while food supply increases at slow rate causing untold harm/starvation Nature imposes restraints to slow population, e.g. poverty, exposure to seasons, unwholesome occupations, epidemics, plagues, etc. No government should interfere with this natural process 4/12/2017 John 3:16

57 Nationalism Didn’t become popular until French Revolution

89 Upheaval in the Austrian Empire

96 The Failures of 1848 Throughout Europe in 1848, popular revolts led to liberal constitutions and liberal governments But early successes led to disasters later, why? #1: Divisions soon shattered the ranks of the revolutionaries Liberals and propertied classes failed to extend suffrage to the working class Liberals rallied to the ruling class fearing social revolution of the working classes—loss of property and security 4/12/2017 John 3:16
