A revolution occurs when a group of citizens revolt
against an established ruling person or class, to
institute a new rule. Throughout history, there have
been many notable revolutions - the American
Revolution, the French Revolution, and the Bolshevik
Revolution in Russia that birthed the Soviet Union - to
name a few.
Most revolutions devolve into violence, although, to
their credit, revolutionaries have always presented
their grievances peacefully, hoping for resolution
Citizens, by nature, tend to divide themselves into 3
major classes. The first class, the ruling or elite
class, has members who are there by birth or friendship
with the rulers. This class typically does not revolt
because it enjoys the privileges of the status quo.
The second class, the lower or dependent class, are
typically slaves or others who rely on handouts from
the rulers for sustenance. They tend not to revolt
because of complacency with the status quo.
The third class, the middle or working class, is made
up of the people who build, manufacture, mine and grow
things for the society. This class is where
revolutionaries come from - they are the only group who
has the muscle to execute a revolt.
In Russia, it was the workers who gave birth to the
Soviet Union. Several decades later, the workers ended
the Soviet Union - and the tyranny of its ruling class.
It was a peaceful revolution - the workers simply
THAT is muscle!
America’s revolutionaries were workers as well. John
Adams is remembered as a lawyer with a brilliant legal
mind, but his primary occupation was running and
working his family farm. The same with Washington and
So, the first 3 American presidents has this in common
- all were working farmers. Most of the recent crop of
Ivy League graduate American presidents wouldn’t know
he ass-end of a plow from the ass-end of an ass. (Well,
Trump would probably know the ass-end of an earth
At the time of the Founding, the elite class were
loyalists to the British Crown - not willing to lose
their status quo standing.
There is currently a revolution taking place in
America. No, it is not a Marxist revolution.
Marxism pervaded America’s ruling class decades ago. It
reigns in the academies, entertainment and big
business. The ruling class, supported by the voting
power of the dependent class who live captive on their
plantation of the mind, squeezed out America’s working
class in favor of cheap, slave labor in other
They have eroded away American’s principles, values and
A few years ago the working class revolted and
manifested as their leader Donald Trump. It was a
peaceful revolution, done at the ballot box.
Immediately the ruling and dependent classes countered
with an endless attack of lies, investigations, rumors,
the censoring of debate, and the suppression of
information. Finally, they used unconstitutional means
to rig the recent election - hoping for a return to the
The revolutionaries have not quit. Hoping to remain
peaceful, they turned to the courts to remedy their
grievances - but, thus far, the courts have refused to
hear their cases.
I do not hope for a violent revolution. Perhaps
America’s working class can borrow a page from the
Russian workers’ playbook.
