It was very old fashioned hence the world ancien which meant old. This meant that it didn't move with the rapid modernization of the western world and therefore was hated by many people. The taxes and things as such was very much based on the facts and figures of the time periods between 1700-1800, and as you know money was much higher back then. Therefore 10% of the incomes (which was what it was in the ancien regime) was quite alot for the people now. There is a very close saying of the president of the time and this statement by the inventor of the old regime '(H)ail (A)nciem (K)eron (A)esdi (N)ais' which translates to 'The anciem regime is oficialy old'
