 Peasants' Revolt - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-06)
The Peasants' Revolt, Tyler’s Rebellion or Great Rising of 1381 was one of a number of popular revolts in late medieval Europe and is a major event in the history of England.
The revolt was precipitated by heavy handed attempts to enforce the third poll tax, which had first been levied in 1377 supposedly to finance military campaigns overseas — a continuation of the Hundred Years' War initiated by King Edward III of England.
The third poll tax, unlike the two earlier, was not levied on a flat rate basis (as in 1377) nor according to schedule (as in 1379), but in a manner that appeared more arbitrary and hence unfair.

 The Great Revolt
In later generations, the rabbis hyperbolically declared that the revolt's failure, and the Temple's destruction, was due not to Roman military superiority but to causeless hatred (sinat khinam) among the Jews (Yoma 9b).

One possibility is that it will be checked by the same process that derailed the revolt of the rich kids in America after the 1960s -- namely, the counter-revolt of the poor kids.

 LawMeme - On the Second Life Tax Revolt   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-06)
They certainly legitimate the revolt by their presence; they are implicitly buying in to this idea that Second Life has a public sphere.
So although the tax revolt was phrased as a complaint about arbitrary government, the demands of the protesters amounted to an insistence that the government do more to promote the particular economic interests of one segment of society.
One last way, then, of looking at the Second Life tax revolt is that Second Life's citizens took some time out from their second lives to say that close analysis alone is insufficient.

 Literature of Richard II's Reign and the Peasants' Revolt: Introduction
The Peasants' Revolt of June and July 1381 was a milestone of medieval English politics and of Richard II's young reign.
Some of the more important incidents in the revolt -- such as Richard's confrontation with the rebels at Mile End and the death of Wat Tyler -- were recorded in well-executed fifteenth-century illustrations.
The rallying-point for the rebellion was the poll tax of 1380-81, a tax that, as an anonymous poet phrased it, "has tenet [harmed] us alle." Worse, this was the third such poll tax, and it was enforced by much-hated commissions of inquiry, which investigated whether all persons were complying with the tax.
