Revolutions are Messy

There are many sayings about revolutions, but my favorite is simply, “Revolutions are messy.” This seems to sum up the majority of the world’s revolutions, despite who wins or loses. The problem for Americans is that our Revolution was easy compared to most, so we tend to think all revolutions are as easy. If you lined up all the world’s revolutions in order from most radical to least, America would be pretty close to the least radical side. How much did we really change? We replaced the British aristocracy with American aristocracy. The Constitution allowed for representation, but only for white men with property who voted only for the House of Representatives. The British had the same right with the House of Commons.

How Many Friends Do You Have?

How many friends do you have? Thousands? If you are on Facebook you may have close to 5000 friends and tens of thousands of more “friends” via Twitter, Instagram, Snapchat or various other social media connections. Are you really connected? Can you really call these social media friends, “friends?”
