Agriculture has always been the means of maintaining acceptance of the centralized state in France even going back to the absolute monarchy. And when the regime begins to crumble, the amount of resources and attention given to the periphery will be sacrificed in order to maintain support in the cities. Discontent will grow in farming areas and gradually encroach on the cities, where, after a while, money and the ability to confer favors and appointments will wane. Conflagration.
