Why we think R-Evolution is not the right mean?

Due to we are living in a peaceful era (at least in Europe where a fought war on its territory is not occurring since 1945) it is universally thought that the right politically correct way to solve social problems is through a "No Revolution" manner. The last time European people saw in European lands a real Revolution was in Russia on October 1917. There is nobody still living who was a main actor of that time, but just in case he or she could be still living he/she would be so old that it would be impossible he/she could relate the revolutionary events exactly as they happened. Yes, we have some movies of Russian Revolution and pictures as well. However in that time photography and cinematographic technique were just moving their first steps. It is impossible to say if, almost hundred years later, we are seeing correct reports of that Revolution.

At least, we are sure of something: people living in a desperate, infrahuman conditions, people whose role was just to be servants like in the Medieval Age (slaves, in other words) found out the courage to reunite their still miserable strengths to fight against a devastating (for their lives) horrible political social system, the system of Russian Tsar.

Considering that a Tsar was no more than an emperor (or a king, if you prefer) this remind us that two hundreds and twenty two years ago another important Revolution took place in Europe. This time it happened in France and as for Russian Revolution people were insurgents against a social political system with the only aim to reduce human beings at a level of slavery.

Both revolutions meant thousands and thousands of deaths. Thousands and thousands of human beings immolated their lives just lying on one hope, the "Hope of Freedom". Their sacrificed their lives hoping that next generations could live free and not as slaves as they were living up to that moment.

Revolution means deaths, blood in the street, terror even in private houses. Pain and suffering suddenly become the leit-motif of people lives. For these reasons revolutions do not last too much time. People can't bear a level of suffering too long.

Thanks to this experience of the revolutionary times, nowadays we think the best manner to solve social problems is to not make revolution. We prefer dialogue. We prefer a slow but no suffering way to find solutions. In other words we have adopted a system based on the principles of "Reforms and Evolution".

Very good idea, we have to say. In theory it should work very well. The truth is that this way is now only food for idiots. The idea that Revolution is not suitable to solve social problems can only told in a way: bullshit.

We have forgotten an important lesson. There are three things in life anybody will never gift you. They are: Freedom, Power and Money. Do you want them? Take them!

Our society is so sleeping that it is unable to understand a simple truth: if we don't fight for our freedom nobody can do it for us. So the question is: is it still worth of it to fight for freedom?

My answer is: yes, it is still a value to fight for freedom, to fight recovering a dignity lost in our collective memory.
