Consequences of Violent Revolution

​While one can choose to use violence to overturn a state, the price afterwards is an authoritarian regime and oppressive dominance of various social groups in perpetuity after the establishment of governance.

Violence, as a tool of revolution, is the blade that cuts the one who wields it as well as well as those who are their targets.

Violence for me begins as an act and then becomes a culture and a culture of violence is a culture of fear and perpetual danger for both those who wield power and control and for the less powerful.
