more workers still operated at home rather than in workshops. Business and commerce aped
the same design with minor shops and banks remaining in abundance. Subsequently, the
countryside of France was occupied by subsistence and small farms for families. When
merged, the lesser autonomous farmers, traders and producer far much outstripped all other
community sections encompassing the waged people.
The administration of the French third republic were legislatures of the lesser
autonomous and receptive to their welfares. Majority of the peasantry and bourgeoisie were
in for a laissez-faire policy and lower tax. This culture was a reflection of issues affecting
Europe at large even though the French third republic had been hit by widespread of
phylloxera that nearly destroyed sixty per cent of the country's vineyard. The manufacturing
output later increased positively to relatively seventy-five per cent. The workforces outside
bourgeois consensus extremely antagonistic since most of their achievements had been taken
away during the warfare. Majority of the middle-class Frenchmen started questioning the
traditional virtues. French third republic, therefore, implemented a powerful fermentation of
social and political thought that led to the movement of groups and dozens of people to Paris
to seek policies of radical renovations and a structural government that could listen and
address their grievances.
