After the storming of the Bastille on July 14, 1789, the British ambassador in Paris said it best: “The troops left the capital and the populace remained the unmolested masters of everything.”
The uprising had world-historic implications, and the broader French Revolution would be an early forerunner for the mass socialist politics that Jacobin was created to advance.
