Democracy and Revolution

Democracy is the process of public input guiding the intentions of government.

Civilization evolves forward by the constant battle between tyranny and freedom.

Thus, when the public loses its ability to be heard and the intentions of government become corrupt, the public must adapt by becoming more accurate, efficient, and effective.

Historically, however, revolutions begin as the public tries to make themselves heard by only increasing their volume; like a person shouting at someone who hears well, but speaks a different language.
