988 Revolutionaries


Karl Marx said “Revolutions are the locomotives of history.” Growing up in the late 1960s and early 70s, like most kids with a burgeoning sense of history, I had a fascination with revolutionaries. I wrote high school civics papers on the Symbionese Liberation Army, Weathermen & Black Panthers. The most interesting insight I gained about revolution is that it doesn't take many true believers to start one, especially if half the nation is willing to let them hide out in their basements, get them the ingredients to make explosives, and cover for them socially and in the media.

Back then, Communist revolutions rocked most nations, eventually controlling half the world; only the Cold War kept them in check; but the Soviet Union fell three decades ago, and egalitarian sympathies have returned with a vengeance, so that revolutionary times are here again, though not yet up to those old levels of U.S. violence: the RFK, MLK & George Rockwell assassinations; riots at the Democratic National Convention, Washington & Baltimore; and Vietnam war demonstrations; all capped by the National Guard killings at Kent State. However; with Social Justice Warriors rioting in Democrat cities around the nation, and a world intent on forced sharing, it's getting close.
