Political Revolutions

What is a Political Revolution?

A political revolution is a changing point in politics and government. A revolution could range from a few people signing a petition to a riot in the streets. No matter how it starts, it always ends in a decision that changed history. Some examples would be the American Revolution, The Stonewall Riots, and the Civil Rights Movement. A pro of a political revolution would be to solve a problem with the government, however a con of a political revolution would be police brutality could rise against you.
