    it looks very much like a bunch of aristocrats used a mob to take over.

    Mostly bourgeois actually, aristocrats were very much profiting of the system. Bourgeois are the ones who had enough money to get education and rethink the political system to end the aristocrats’ birth privileges. How would an illiterate peasant be able to rethink the political system beyond tax reduction?
