  revolution - Anarchopedia
Political revolutions are often characterised by violence, and the vast changes in power structures that result can often result in further, institutionalised, violence, as in the Russian and French revolutions (with the "Purges" and "the Terror", respectively).
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.

 R4 DS - Revolution 4 Nintendo DS Roms
It has been suggested by some that Nintendo released the information about the real-space controller because they caught wind of a "pitch" and "yaw" handheld extension of the R4 EyeToy that was being considered for the PlayStation 3 and therefore released the information to avoid accusations of plagiarism.
However, the likelihood of this is quite low—the technology (and the patents) upon which the "pitch" and "yaw" of the Revolution Controller is based was purchased by Nintendo in mid-2001 [49], well before the EyeToy even existed.
The Nintendo Revolution controller sets aside the traditional controller seen in other mainstream consoles in an attempt to appeal to a larger audience.

The situation remained unclear for at least the revolution's first day, the Officers in their attempts at consolidating their newly won power returning to the Radio building throughout the day to repeat their statement.
The recording of the statement of the revolution in the archive of Egyptian Broadcasting is by Anwar El-Sadat, made in January 1953 when Radio Cairo was celebrating the first six months of the revolution.
The Radio's new role was being shaped during the early days of the revolution, and introducing the young Free Officers who had just assumed control of the country to the public and propagating their ideas was the number one task of the time.

 Al-Ahram Weekly | Egypt | A revolution revisited
While this year's July Revolution celebrations were inevitably overshadowed by the terrorist bombings in Sharm El-Sheikh, few observers would disagree that, with the exception of the 50th anniversary in 2002, the day generates little national enthusiasm.
Critics of the revolution, though, decry the level of political and human rights allowed by the new regime, and point to the appalling condition of today's public sector.
They may both be ardent supporters of 23 July but the best way to commemorate the events of that day, 53 years ago, they say, is to better analyse the revolution, its successes and its failures.

The Ukrainian Revolution (4 July 1918 - 30 December 1922) was a pivotal period in the history of Ukraine.

On July 14, 1789, the storming of the Bastille immediately took on a great historical dimension; it was proof that power no longer resided in the King as God's representative, but in the people, in accordance with the theories developed by their philosophers of the eighteenth century.
At the end of the 19th century the French considered the enduring gains of the Revolution to be the idea of the nation, one and indivisible, based on a voluntary union and incorporating the principles of human rights and national sovereignty, the rule of law and a republican form of government.
Revolution tends toward chaos and anarchy, unless human nature is soon held in check by the new regime.

 Heinrich Heine and the July Revolution of 1830
Heinrich Heine and the July Revolution of 1830
The Revolution of 1848, which overthrew the July Monarchy, did not come as a true surprise to Heine, since he was aware of the unrest that had been building among the lower classes, and he could not have avoided noticing the food shortages and general misery that were again setting in throughout France.
Heine was therefore disillusioned by both the 1830 and 1848 Revolutions, as he felt that they did not in effect change the lives of the people, at least not in the ways or to the extent that he believed necessary.

Especially was this true in Catalonia where, within a week from July 19, transport and industry was almost entirely in the hands of CNT workers’ committees, or where workers belonged to both, CNT-UGT joint committees.
After the first tidal wave of revolution, of course, the committees revealed their basic weakness: they were based on mutual agreement of the organizations from which they drew their members, and after the first weeks, the Esquerra, backed by the Stalinists, recovered their courage and voiced their own programme.
The ‘revolution of July 19’ was incomplete, but that it was a revolution is attested to by its having created a régime of dual power.

However, maybe there is the chance of a calm, polite revolution, and perhaps in lieu of "divine love" we could use the idea of simple "kindness." Consider, just for the sake of argument, how good people, in a democracy that has been taken over by cold, rich, scary, armed white men, might proceed.
All of us were raised to be polite, as honest as we could manage, and to live as if the word "fair" meant something, which all sounds a little Amish at this point.
All we would ask is that you show up and help us foment a revolution, based on kindness and that silly old idea our parents taught us, about fairness.
