A revolution

A post card on PostSecret hit home... once again. Something always does I suppose and that is why I love checking the site every week. This week I saw a card about the possibility of a peaceful revolution.

This popped out at me because it is something I have been pondering a lot lately. Is it possible? If enough people stand up will it work? Originally there were two e-mail responses posted but they have since been removed. I'm reposting:

For encouragement on a peaceful revolution, read about the Filipino Revolution of 1986. Four days, no bloodshed and the existing government was still overturned.

In Portugal we had, in 1974, a peaceful revolution. It is known as "the 25th of April" or "The Carnation Revolution".

It's worth knowing that there is something we can do. Who is with me? How do we start?

You say you want a revolution, yah, we all wanna change the world...

Where to begin is frustrating. There's a march tomorrow in DC. Do marches even work anymore? It seems so much more complicated than that.

Agreed. At least the march is something.
