Some quotes that sum up your inverted priorities and empathy, starting with the daily terror French peasants lived in before the revolution:
"There were two 'Reigns of Terror', if we could but remember and consider it; the one wrought murder in hot passions, the other in heartless cold blood; the one lasted mere months, the other had lasted a thousand years; the one inflicted death upon a thousand persons, the other upon a hundred million; but our shudders are all for the "horrors of the... momentary Terror, so to speak; whereas, what is the horror of swift death by the axe compared with lifelong death from hunger, cold, insult, cruelty and heartbreak? A city cemetery could contain the coffins filled by that brief terror that we have all been so diligently taught to shiver at and mourn over; but all France could hardly contain the coffins filled by that older and real Terror - that unspeakable bitter and awful Terror which none of us has been taught to see in its vastness or pity as it deserves." - Mark Twain
"First, I must confess that over the last few years I have been gravely disappointed with the white moderate. I have almost reached the regrettable conclusion that the Negro's great stumbling block in the stride toward freedom is not the White Citizen's Council-er or the Ku Klux Klanner, but the white moderate who is more devoted to "order" than to justice; who prefers a negative peace which is the absence of tension to a positive peace which is the presence of justice; who constantly says "I agree with you in the goal you seek, but I can't agree with your methods of direct action;" who paternalistically feels he can set the timetable for another man's freedom; who lives by the myth of time and who constantly advises the Negro to wait until a "more convenient season." - MLK Jr.
For the bourgeois living in their bubbles, the tragedy of the French and Russian revolutions isn't that 90% of the people were crushed for hundreds of years under the boot heel of aristocracy, it's that the rich and upper class got the shit end of the stick for once, instead of the poor. Because, as MLK laid out, your priority is order, justice can go to the back of the bus.
It's the same sense of priorities that may make you tut tut when you read about cops literally beating people to death in the street for no goddamn reason and getting away with it, but are outraged when a protestor breaks a window or makes you ten minutes late on your morning commute. One more quote to sum it up:
"Those who make peaceful revolution impossible will make violent revolution inevitable." - JFK
