 Revolution - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
A political revolution is the forcible replacement of one set of rulers with another (as happened in France and Russia), while a social revolution is the fundamental change in the social structure of a society, such as the Protestant Reformation or the Renaissance.
Social and political revolutions are often "institutionalized" when the ideas, slogans, and personalities of the revolution continue to play a prominent role in a country's political culture, long after the revolution's end.
English Revolution -- (1642-1653) -- Commenced as a civil war between Parliament and King, culminating in the execution of Charles I and the establishment of a republican Protectorate.

 The Consciousness Revolution - First Day, Morning.
In non-ordinary states of consciousness, the psychological encounter with death is the key element in psychospiritual transformation.
After forty years of consciousness research, I feel strongly that the true reason for this difference is the naïveté and ignorance of Western industrial civilization in regard to non-ordinary states of consciousness.
This opening to the exploration of consciousness is partly the consequence of scientific developments, but I think it also owes a lot to large numbers of people having the experience of non-ordinary states of consciousness.

Her image of the revolution is unrealistically simple in three important respects her extension of the concept of the proletariat to cover the widest masses of the population; her "over-estimation of the spontaneous, elemental forces of the Revolution," and her tendency to believe in an "ideological organized growth into socialism".
She consistently over-estimates the unity of the proletariat and the proletarian character of the revolution, minimizing the organizational consequences of divisions within the class and the complexity of alliances with non-proletarian strata and classes.
As the revolution approaches, the next step on the path to socialism becomes less and less obvious; the spontaneous reaction of the class to the operation of the economic laws is no longer an adequate guide and actions must be based increasingly on the objective potentialities of the society.

It will be a Consciousness Revolution, and its impact upon the course of humanity will be greater than that of all of the revolutions which have preceded it.
All that is necessary for this next revolution to commence is for the scientific community to officially acknowledge and accept the existence of consciousness and all of the accompanying implications inferred by that reality.

Watson, as a good anti-Stalinist, is of course aware of the denigration of "consciousness" as "subjectivity" during the epoch, post-1917, of counter-revolution-within-revolutions.

Consciousness III will destroy the corporate state "without violence, without seizure of political power, without overthrow of any existing group of people." Counter-culture is sworn to attack minds, not capital gains or depletion allowances.
Consciousness III has all the classic symptoms of a lifestyle dreamwork whose social function is to dissolve and fragment the energies of dissent.
Measured by the grandiose visions of military-messianic consciousness, counter-culture appears to be a relatively harmless affirmation of the futility of political struggle, either of the right, left, or center.

It is doubtful that the majority of Dossey's colleagues will be susceptible to his suggestion: that the mind-body revolution is leading inexorably toward a consciousness revolution-one so profound that some long-cherished scientific truisms may have to be subsumed within a much larger, much stranger framework.

Although there are important differences between these structures of consciousness, the fundamental similarity is that there is a transition from the current mode of consciousness to a type of consciousness that makes the patternings of the former mode of consciousness transparent.
The vast majority of us will be detaching from identification of one belief system or religion and be able to see the founding archetypes which act as templates for the religions, myths, and tribal identity of the world.
As Stan Grof states in the recently published, The Consciousness Revolution, "Traditionally, what organized religion has done is to unify a group of people by focusing on specific archetypal figures and themes and claiming that they are unique"(1)—at the expense of equally valid belief systems.

This problem of co-option has been a constant all through the first phase of not only the modern sexual revolution but the modern revolution in consciousness.
For example, many of the important intellectual breakthroughs of the Enlightenment were co-opted into the construction of a science that all too often served merely to make oppression and destruction more efficient -- a subject we will return to.

 LSD, Neurological Freedom and Media Mentalism   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-21)
Both the Revolution of Consciousness and the sexual revolution have been legacies of the Baby Boomer Generation, yet it appears now that secular thought is content to settle with the belief that the sexual revolution with its obession with sexual chemistry is the final resting place of the Revolution of Consciousness.
The politics of consciousness must include various forms of activism designed to hold the media to a higher level of accountability, to join with others in the drive to legalize psychedelics for already established therapeutic and medicinal benefits, to establish meeting places in cities around the world and distribute information on college and university campuses.
Scientifically, consciousness can be produced only by the biological prerequisites for a nervous system and brain, so it is the function of a coherent language, not a "collective consciousness," to create order in human society through communication.

After the February Revolution in Russia, the Provisional government that had replaced the Tsar continued to prosecute the war 'more efficiently', while telling the workers and peasants that significant change could not come until the war was over, therefore stoking the anti-war feeling of the masses.
Breaking the ideas of revolutionary defencism­the idea that the revolution changed the nature of the war, and that defence of Russia was a defence of the aims of the revolution­was a central task for revolutionary socialists if the revolution was to progress to an overthrow of capitalism itself.

 Paulo Freire: The PrometheanLiteracy (dissertation)
Consciousness, for Freire, is a task of "denouncing and working against the dominant ideology...This unveiling is one of the mains tasks..to illuminate reality..To make reality opaque is not neutral.
The crux of the Chinese cultural revolution was precisely what Freire hopes to overcome--in his mind--not in practice; that is, the Chinese cultural revolution was about the bureaucratization of the Chinese Communist Party rising from the growing privileges of the party leadership whose interests had become inimical to the interests of the mass of people.
The sense of liberation presented in Freire takes the dichotomous approach that is likely to arise from the agnosticism that sweeps across his sense of education and consciousness, that is, he is unable to link the dialectical relationship of liberation in the mind, revolution in political affairs, and the abstraction of freedom for humanity.

The revolution we are dealing with here is not external, political or economic, etc., but in fact an internal revolution made by ourselves, with voluntary and conscious efforts, to radically and positively transform ourselves, releasing us from the involuntary, decadent and degenerative circle in which humanity is more and more submerged.
And so they go on, from generation to generation, from existence to existence, from the cradle to the grave, with a blindfold over their eyes, without knowing where they came from, why they exist, and much less, where they are going.

Among them are the dignity of all human beings, their equality of fundamental worth, and their need to live in community, with respect and empathy for others, but also with some measure of individual liberty.
Their priorities may be defined not so much by institutional affiliation as by a common commitment to human rights, often reinforced by personal or professional ties to others in the network.
Moreover, the focus of the rights revolution on states, both as violators and enforcement vehicles, is increasingly bypassed by economic globalization, civil wars, and evolving social attitudes toward gender roles in the family.
