I remember last week in class and as I sit here studying for my test, the discussion my class has had about Napoleon. In class we had debates about whether or not Napoleon stuck true to the revolutionary ideals or betrayed them during his reign. After hearing both sides of the argument it has been hard to fall on either side. Although, he can be argued good or bad, I believe he was the right leader for the time. Napoleon was able to bring the stability and the strength that France needed at that time. Napoleon brought the country economic stability, social mobility, religious freedom as well as making France a strong military force. Even with the things I have listed many could say he still betrayed the ideas of the French Revolution, but it makes one begin to wonder even though he betrayed the ideals of the French Revolution is it okay because he made France a stronger country?
