revolution by jared dublin

Revolution always begins when a group of people have different view of what is going on throughout society, whether it is positive or negative. In violent or peaceful ways the group of people try to rebel against whatever it is they are going against. Whether it is in peaceful ways such as marches, or in Egypt's case using technology such as the internet and Facebook to get the message across and ban people with the same belief together. Or on the other hand there can negative and violent rebellions. In today’s world revolutions are much more technological and advanced then what revolutions were years ago.

The exchange on Facebook was part of a remarkable two-year collaboration that has given birth to a new force in the Arab world — a pan-Arab youth movement dedicated to spreading democracy in a region without it. Young Egyptian and Tunisian activists brainstormed on the use of technology to evade surveillance, commiserated about torture and traded practical tips on how to stand up to rubber bullets and organize barricades.

They fused their secular expertise in social networks with a discipline culled from religious movements and combined the energy of soccer fans with the sophistication of surgeons. Breaking free from older veterans of the Arab political opposition, they relied on tactics of nonviolent resistance channeled from an American scholar through a Serbian youth brigade — but also on marketing tactics borrowed from Silicon Valley.”
