On a medical blog recently, a physician concerned about passage of Obamacare lamented, “When 77% of the population does not like the bill in its present form yet politicians are still trying to pass it, does it not cry for revolution? We must stand up and contact our senators and congressmen.”
It seems that the idea of revolution has devolved some- what over the centuries. No more pledging one’s life, liberty, and sacred honor. No more difficult choices between liberty and death. None of those wild-hairs like Patrick Henry calling for us to take up arms. Now you can do it simply by contacting your congressional representatives.
It’s much safer, and, if you take a long enough view, equally effective.
