Christopher Hitchens has a nice perspective on revolutions in Vanity Fair:
source: ... When anatomizing revolutions, it always pays to consult the whiskered old veterans. Those trying to master a new language, wrote Karl Marx about the turmoil in France in the 19th century, invariably begin haltingly, by translating it back into the familiar tongue they already know. And with his colleague Friedrich Engels he defined a revolution as the midwife by whom the new society is born from the body of the old.
... ... read the whole article, it's short, don't get side-tracked with the emboldened Engels quote.

The question of what's next might dovetail into another item where we learn to blend the golden rule of individual ethics with the politics of a revolution & define first principles for a new society transforming corruption, RWG & dictatorships & the like by threefolding into a synergy of individuals rather than a ship of fools.
