Popular masses in the bourgeois revolution of the Southern Netherlands (1565-1585, 1789-1794, 1830)

19 September 2022

Naturally one cannot reduce the political struggles that characterized the three successive phases of the bourgeois, national-democratic revolutions in the Southern Netherlands (those of the 16th, 18th and 19th centuries) to purely or essentially religious and constitutional conflicts.i One must lay bare the socio-economic motivations and components of these struggles.

El modo de producción capitalista niega a los productores el libre acceso a los medios de producción y los alimentos, obligándolos así a vender su fuerza de trabajo para obtener los medios de subsistencia diaria; su fuerza de trabajo se transforma en una mercancía. Como cualquier propietario de mercancías, el propietario de la fuerza de trabajo va al mercado a venderla.
