Quote of the day—Daniel Greenfield

Revolution works best when the authorities are weakened by a transition period, when they were once oppressive, but have been liberalizing, or where they are asserting a new level of authority that the people are not used to. It is in these transition points that revolutions are most effective because the authorities are not ready to cope with them and the people are made bold and desperate by the uncertainty.

Interesting stuff. Almost all assertions with a bit of anecdote thrown it, but still interesting.—Joe]
