The plan of this book is fairly simple. We must ask ourselves three questions.
The clergy (1st Estate) and nobility (2nd Estate) amounted to about 2% of the population of France in the days before the French Revolution -- but all political power was in their hands in everything. The rest of the nation -- from lawyers and merchants down to peasants and street sweepers -- all counted as the 3rd Estate. That body of the people made up 98% of the population. The time had come for them to take hold of their power in deciding how their country was going to operate.
