"Revolutions have never lightened the burden of tyranny, they have only shifted it to another shoulder"

How does this apply to the French Revolution? Need some ideas for an essay, I am a bit stuck for ideas and is there anywhere where I can find articles about this topic?

Jacobins, Maximilien Robespierre, Reign of Terror, then of course Thermidorian Reaction coup d'état and eventually Napoleon himself :france:

1. Reject premise.
2. Monkey with metaphor.

Shaw's claim that revolutions only shift the boulder of tyranny to another shoulder can hardly be applied to the French revolution, in which that boulder was dropped squarely on the foot.
