Rational Alchemy: The Revolution Continues Part 1 of 2
Colorado Progressives for Change Facebook group:

Bernie’s Our Revolution:

Panelists: Jeri Shepherd, Jason Sherry, Lynette McClain and Duane Leise

Hosted by Nigel Aves

Produced at the Captn's Lounge Studio, located in Longmont, Colorado, USA

Four Bernie Sanders political activists and national DNC delegates from Colorado join Nigel Aves and Rational Alchemy in a Political Alchemy - The Revolution Continues. The discussion focuses on what Bernie and his movement is all about, but more importantly where it is headed. The panelists tell of their experiences at the DNC in Philadelphia in an unvarnished just-the-way-it-was fashion. Nigel gives a distinctly British perspective, view and questioning of the American political process that puts the Bernie Revolution into sharp contrast and gives a thoughtful framing of the Political Revolution.

  1. Mass Mobilization: Political revolutions are often characterized by large-scale mobilization of people from different segments of society. These individuals come together to challenge the established power structures and advocate for change.
  2. Demands for Transformation: Political revolutions seek to fundamentally alter the political, social, or economic order. They may demand reforms, constitutional changes, or a complete overhaul of the existing system.
  3. Discontent and Grievances: Revolutions are usually fueled by widespread discontent and grievances, such as social inequality, political repression, economic hardship, or corruption.
  4. Grassroots Movements: Political revolutions often originate from grassroots movements and civil society organizations, which can mobilize and organize people with shared goals.
  5. Nonviolent or Violent Actions: Revolutions can take both nonviolent and violent forms. While some movements advocate for peaceful protests and civil disobedience, others may resort to more confrontational methods.
  6. Overthrow of Ruling Regime: In some cases, a political revolution may lead to the overthrow of the existing ruling regime, resulting in a change of government or leadership.

Historical examples of political revolutions include:

  1. American Revolution (1775-1783): The American Revolution resulted in the separation of the Thirteen Colonies from British rule and the establishment of the United States as an independent nation.
  2. French Revolution (1789-1799): The French Revolution brought about significant political, social, and economic changes in France, leading to the end of the monarchy and the rise of a republican government.
  3. Russian Revolution (1917): The Russian Revolution led to the overthrow of the Tsarist autocracy and the establishment of the Soviet Union, a socialist state.
  4. Arab Spring (2010-2012): The Arab Spring was a series of uprisings and protests across several Middle Eastern and North African countries, demanding political and social reforms and, in some cases, leading to regime changes.

Political revolutions are complex and often unpredictable events with far-reaching consequences. They can bring about positive changes and opportunities for progress but can also lead to instability and challenges in the transition to a new political order.
