    New leaders, institutions and ideas caused the French Revolution to become so radical. Robespierre was a radical leader that was involved in many of the new influential groups, like the Jacobin club, the Mountain, and the Committee of Public Safety. Therefore, many of his ideas were transferred into these influential groups. Once he could convey his message to the institutions to which he belonged his radical ideas spread, and were executed (no pun intended). Also, some of the radical groups were able to join together, like the Mountain and the sans-culottes. Inevitably, the radical ideas spread in these institutions, and the radical institutions became a majority.
