France near bankrupted itself giving support to the American rebels ... that fiscal catastrophe helped generate the French Revolution. So no USA might
have meant no French Revolution, so France might still have had a monarchy even today.
And with no liberté, égalité or fraternité to speak of, there might not have been any of the anti establishment/anti colonialist movements at all.
The uneducated would still lack schooling, poor people would still be impoverished & the sick would remain untreated because the ideas borne from the
French Revolution just didn't happen. Socialism/social democracy & communism might never have happened. Karl Marx could've been running the British
North American railroads instead of plotting the downfall of the system. Women might not have the vote, for example. India could still be the Jewel in
the British Crown ... the possibilities are endless.
