-an overthrow or repudiation and the thorough replacement of an established government or political system by the people governed.
-the overthrow or renunciation of one government or ruler and the substitution of another by the governed.
Usually violent, but it doesn't have to be. The point is to take down the current government and/or political system and replace it with another, usually in a short period of time. The point is FREEDOM from the rich bastards that rule us all.
"We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness. That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed.
That whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Government, laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their Safety and Happiness. Prudence, indeed, will dictate that Governments long established should not be changed for light and transient causes; and accordingly all experience hath shewn that mankind are more disposed to suffer, while evils are sufferable than to right themselves by abolishing the forms to which they are accustomed. But when a long train of abuses and usurpations, pursuing invariably the same Object evinces a design to reduce them under absolute Despotism, it is their right, it is their duty, to throw off such Government, and to provide new Guards for their future security."
Revolution, that's what they were talking about. "When in the course of human events it becomes necessary for one people to dissolve the political bands which have connected them with another."
It seems damn necessary to me. Those thinking anything will change regarding how we are ruled by playing by their rules are wrong. Worrying about the democratic party, the republican party, Bernie Sanders, Hillary Clinton, Donald Trump, it all doesn't matter. The verdict is in, it has become necessary.
Many people are there, more are getting there every day. It's only a matter of time. The trajectory we're on is not slowing and it's not changing. The wealth inequality, the wars, the power of the wealthy, the rich and ultra rich continues to increase with nothing to stop it except We the People.
"Prudence, indeed, will dictate that Governments long established should not be changed for light and transient causes; and accordingly all experience hath shewn that mankind are more disposed to suffer, while evils are sufferable than to right themselves by abolishing the forms to which they are accustomed.
"All experience hath shewn" that we'll keep falling for the bullshit of politician after politician until we get Satan himself as President. Maybe then the evils will be sufferable enough to do what needs to be done.
Pretty simple really, it always has been. We're only humans.
