Was the French revolution good or bad?

Looking for head to head debates, especially on contradictions or the Trinity. PM me your topic.

France passed through so many revolutions and each had had a substantial impact on the country's development and culture too. Personally, I believe that revolutions unified people. It raised the awareness of the French nation as a nation, a culture. I traveled to France three years ago and I was impressed with everything I saw. I struggled a little bit with their language because you will find few people speaking English. At least, I was able to learn a few vandertramp verbs, so I was able to order a croissant.
