Can someone please explain to me what this means?
A Unanimous Realization of the Need for a Major Change
This is the very essence that motivates any revolution. Reform is the key word. A revolution may choose as its object a political transformation, a social transformation, or a simple change of ruler. This unanimous realization serves as the uniting factor ofsubordinate groups in their attempt to transform the social foundations of political power.
Revolutions occur because the people want reform (change). They may want to get rid of a whole type of government (political transformation). They may want to make life better for the ordinary people (social transformation). They may want to get a different ruler.
If the people are unified in the purpose of the revolution, then various subgroups will put away their differences and work together to bring about the desired reforms.
