„The American Revolution was not a common event.“

—  John Adams 2nd President of the United States 1735 - 1826

1810s, What do we mean by the American Revolution? (1818)
Kontext: The American Revolution was not a common event. Its effects and consequences have already been awful over a great part of the globe. And when and where are they to cease?
But what do we mean by the American Revolution? Do we mean the American war? The Revolution was effected before the war commenced. The Revolution was in the minds and hearts of the people; a change in their religious sentiments of their duties and obligations. … This radical change in the principles, opinions, sentiments, and affections of the people, was the real American Revolution.

„With the technology, we’ve become more apathetic, because we don’t look in each other’s eyes any more as we attempt communication. But at the same time, with one iPhone, we can start a revolution. If there’s injustice, you just film it and post it. And suddenly people are tapped into a current event they wouldn’t otherwise see, and that’s incredible.“

—  Laura Dern American actress, director, producer 1967

„A revolutionary moment in the world’s history is a time for revolutions, not for patching.“

—  William Beveridge, Beveridge Report

Pt. 1, 7
Social Insurance and Allied Services (1942)
Kontext: Any proposals for the future, while they should use to the full the experience gathered in the past, should not be restricted by consideration of sectional interests established in the obtaining of that experience. Now, when the war is abolishing landmarks of every kind, is the opportunity for using experience in a clear field. A revolutionary moment in the world’s history is a time for revolutions, not for patching.

„The right of revolution is an inherent one.“

—  Ulysses S. Grant 18th President of the United States 1822 - 1885

Quelle: 1880s, Personal Memoirs of General U. S. Grant (1885), Ch. 16.
Kontext: The right of revolution is an inherent one. When people are oppressed by their government, it is a natural right they enjoy to relieve themselves of the oppression, if they are strong enough, either by withdrawal from it, or by overthrowing it and substituting a government more acceptable. But any people or part of a people who resort to this remedy, stake their lives, their property, and every claim for protection given by citizenship — on the issue. Victory, or the conditions imposed by the conqueror — must be the result.
