When do revolutions (For example the American, French, and Russian) usually occur? Is it when those in power are resistant to change?

  • Social Studies -

    Yes. Revolutions also occur when the citizens are angry because they've been mistreated by the government. The people want change and those in power don't want change.

    Tabby, the best reason I know is the very old saying, "Absolute power corrupts absolutely." When the person in power thinks he doesn't have to listen to the people, then the people are going to make him listen. This is a very old lesson, but somehow, when people gain that kind of power they forget or begin to feel that they are too right or too perfect or God ordained. Then the only voice they will listen to is the voice of the people in revolt. This is happening all over the world - most recently, Myanmar.
