Few have the ability to negotiate terms when they are surrounded by chaos.
Those throughout history who may have appeared to do so will have either had more than a generous helping of luck, or destiny played its part on their side.
No matter what you might believe or deem to be fair or just, given all that you have experienced up until now, civil disorder and unrest may feel right. But it is very unlikely to lead to a situation where everyone whose support you need will believe and trust that you have right on your side.
Whilst nothing less than a revolution is everything that we now need, there is no need for any of us to behave like revolutionaries to achieve the right outcome.
The majority will always accept the result of a revolution for the long term, when they don’t realise that they were taking part all along.
A word of caution: Peaceful protest is all well and good in a measured way. But a complete loss of control means that control is lost of everything for everyone for at least a short period of time.
If that happens, there is never any guarantee behind who will be next to take up power.
Whilst history books most often tell us otherwise, the result of the Russian Revolution of 1917 was never certain. It relied on what we might call a lot of luck for the Communists – which was from then onwards for Russia, many other surrounding Countries and millions of people – arguably what turned out to be a VERY unlucky thing.
