It is well-known that both revolutions were instigated by freemasons ("Liberté, Egalité, Fraternité" is the masonic motto) and that freemasons are mostly gentile puppets of the Jewish Rothschild empire but I never understood their purpose. The creation of the middle class, however, seems to perfectly fit....

Financially, maybe, but, other than that, well, I think that would be giving them CREDIT when it's not due.
The following quote from Wikipedia gives an indication of how powerful the Rothschilds still are today :
From his headquarters in St James's Place in London Jacob Rothschild has cultivated an influential set of clients, business associates and friends who have extended his interests far beyond the normal scope of a banker.
He was a close personal friend of the late Diana, Princess of Wales and maintains strong personal and business links with Henry Kissinger.
His country estate has been a regular venue for visiting heads of state including Presidents Ronald Reagan and Bill Clinton. Margaret Thatcher received French President François Mitterrand there at a summit in 1990. He hosted the European Economic Round Table conference in 2002, attended by such figures as James Wolfensohn, former president of the World Bank, Nicky Oppenheimer, Warren Buffett and Arnold Schwarzenegger. He has a personal collection of 15,000 bottles of Rothschild wines dating as far back as 1870. They are stored in the cellars at Waddesdon Manor.
He has also developed strong business interests in Russia and is a friend of Mikhail Khodorkovsky and a trustee of the Open Russia Foundation, a UK based entity founded in 2001 as the charitable arm of YUKOS.
Lord Rothschild has also followed the Rothschild family's charitable interests in Israel and is the chairman of Yad Hanadiv, the family foundation which gave the Knesset and the Supreme Court buildings to Israel. He is also President of the Institute for Jewish Policy Research.
Also, have you heard of the first Balfour declaration. This 1917 promise of Lord Balfour to Lord Rothschild was the first British step to the creation of the state of Israel 31 years later.
November 2nd, 1917.
Dear Lord Rothschild,
I have much pleasure in conveying to you, on behalf of His Majesty's Government, the following declaration of sympathy with Jewish Zionist aspirations which has been submitted to, and approved by, the Cabinet:
"His Majesty's Government view with favour the establishment in Palestine of a national home for the Jewish people, and will use their best endeavours to facilitate the achievement of this object, it being clearly understood that nothing shall be done which may prejudice the civil and religious rights of existing non-Jewish communities in Palestine, or the rights and political status enjoyed by Jews in any other country".
I should be grateful if you would bring this declaration to the knowledge of the Zionist Federation.
Arthur James Balfour
