Some people are just unclear about the meaning of "revolution"

"Revolution", like "revolve" implies that the first shall be last, the last shall be first, the top shall sink to the bottom and the oppressed get their time in the sun. It is permanent change...not an odd day's out. A reordering of the world and its resources.

But there are those who think that calling for a Revolution is just a cute advertising gimmick...that Bernie doesn't really mean it, and neither do his blindly loyal supporters. That the American people wouldn't stand for it, and neither would the American government. That enough money will change hands to pacify the noisiest, hire the cops to beat down the rest, and life will continue in its current endless circles. That the current Masters of the Universe will remain the Masters.

And they are willing to bet a lot of money on that. But are they willing to bet a lot of time?

Bernie's got the people who are willing to put their time, toil, and any cash they can scrape up into his revolution, which is truly OUR revolution. And don't let any cynical, paid-off lackey of the 1% tell you otherwise!


And if it comes to a question of whether peaceful revolution will "be allowed" to occur, well:

3. From the comments of Naked Capitalism

 

Difference between Bernie and Hillary:

Hillary: “I’ll clean up Wall Street all by myself, even those guys who paid me $225,000 per speech, even the people that I take money from. I’ll hire Merry Maids to come in and clean up. I will earnestly, nearly killing myself with effort, exhaust myself and work my fingers to the bone to save you all.”

Bernie: "Listen up people! You’re adults. Haul ass and get yourselves organized. I can do a lotta heavy lifting, but this won’t happen unless you all pitch in and do your share. We do that, there’s enough for everybody. And maybe we oughta get some hot dogs ready, ’cause we oughta get our baseball gloves and get a softball game going after we clean up this Wall Street mess. Who’s bringing the ketchup? And mustard? We’re gonna need a LOT of mustard!”
