This Vine below represents many aspects of conservatism. The first part shows people rioting for rights, and then it shows two nobles acting smug and saying “that’s why we’re in charge”. This represents conservatism because this certain ideology wanted to preserve the traditional government of an absolute monarchy, meaning the nobles held all of the power. The revolting of the poor people showed how it socially affected Europe because it made them fight back against their rulers. But it also proves a point for the conservatives; they believed that the French Revolution and all of it’s rioting proved that common citizens should not have a say in the government because it would end up in a bloody fight. The second aspect of the vine focused on how the nobles did not support change because it would threaten their place in the social ladder as well as the government. In the vine, a scientist is talking about a new discovery,but a noble dismisses it, using the Bible as an excuse to why it isn’t real. This shows how conservatives wanted to keep things the way they were, because that means they would still hold all of the power.

The other two ideologies that were in Europe during the 19th Century were nationalism and liberalism. Nationalism is people united by a common culture, language, belief system and their ruler. They thought that their ruler should be of their own heritage, and wanted to expel any foreign rulers. This influenced their social action because it connected them with people of the same heritage. It influenced their political action by putting them behind the idea of having a ruler from their own country, and made them dislike rulers from outside. Liberalism focused on what the majority wanted. They wanted them to have more of a political influence, which is why liberalists favored a constitutional monarchy or a meritocracy over an absolute monarchy. Liberalism influenced social action because it made the majority speak up more and have a say in what they believe in.
