    Revolution? No, not at this time. I reserve the right though.

    Can you explain what a "rebellion" looks like?

    Pictures speak louder than words
    Nobody who wins a war indulges in a bifurcated definition of victory. War is a political act; victory and defeat have meaning only in political terms. A country incapable of achieving its political objectives at an acceptable cost is losing the war, regardless of battlefield events.

    Bifurcating victory (e.g. winning militarily, losing politically) is a useful salve for defeated armies. The "stab in the back" narrative helped take the sting out of failure for German generals after WWI and their American counterparts after Vietnam.

    All the same, it's nonsense. To paraphrase Vince Lombardi, show me a political loser, and I'll show you a loser.

    It's smaller and not typically aimed at total government replacement. I suppose maybe it could just be a perception thing in that you can say revolution is a rebellion that succeeded. But that's kinda how I picture it in my head. Though I'm replacing that image with beer now. So we'll see what it turns into.

    Americans are so enamored of equality that they would rather be equal in slavery than unequal in freedom.

    We didn't start the fire.

    *cough*

    Varied reports, it all could have been avoided though by just allowing the protesters their full and unmolested right to assembly and protest.

    That cuts into the government's racket, and they wouldn't take so kindly.
