If they feel their government doesn't have what's best in mind for the individual, people get mad and people rebel.

The basic compulsion to rebel arises when people feel that their lives and living conditions are intolerable, that there is no hope of improvement under the present government, that the present government doesn't care about them and will do nothing for the. Once people see that their government does not have its welfare in mind and that it never will, those people will seek to overthrow that government in order to better themselves.

People take arms in their hands when they are oppressed, have fire in their stomach, when their basic human and civil rights are grossly violated by the oppressors. In India, the Maoists have rebelled against the authority after they capitalized the sufferings of the tribal people, who were denied their land rights even in their home land where they have been living for centuries,after they remain starved for days together, denied to collect fire woods for their livlihood.

Were the French people fighting for their liberty during French Revolution Terrorists?

Some were, but the overwhelming majority were not. What makes a rebel a terrorist is when he attacks a civilian population with the intent that such an attack will cause a government to accede to his demands. A non-terrorist rebel typically attacks soldiers of the government he opposes. In the case of the French Revolution, the rebels opposed the French military, which would put them into the non-terrorist category. What makes a government a terrorist is when it brutally attacks or represses its own citizens. After attaining power, the rebels established a new French Republican Government with a "Committee for Public Safety". This committee, chaired by Robespierre was responsible for the Reign of Terror in which numerous French civilians were guillotined for minor offenses if any. This was an act of terror, and individuals like Robespierre may well be seen as terrorists.
