revolution?? // tempoj de sxangxoj


from a psy point of view, knowledge & action are two different terrritories. a person may 'know' -that, too, remains to be seen of course- but be totally uneager to act. he may understand, but "choose" to give in to his weakness. also, when responsibility is scattered, a person's sense of 'protagonism' ( = obligation) fades away: he expects others to act [first]. 

that's a rough draft of why a %^*%*@$# revolution takes such a loooong time to happen. if at all. ... ... ...

  1. Revolutions don't happen when violence (state or any kind) is at its zenith. Revolutions occur when the feared state gives people some freedoms. That wets the people's attitude. The state is open unable to keep up with increasing demands and voilà! A new revolution is born!

    Soviet Union didn't break under Stalin's purges, 1989 didn't happen under Mao, Czechs didn't rebel when violence was at its extreme...
