What is Political Revolution?

Hamilton Molyneaux

Political Revolution

A political revolution is an upheaval in which the government is replaced, or the form of the government is altered, but in which property relations are predominantly left intact. Political Revolutions are contrasted with social revolutions in which old property relations are overturned. Such political revolutions are envisioned to overthrow undemocratic governments of bureaucratic privilege, replacing them with governments based on workers' democracy while maintaining state owned property relations.
