2018: The revolution will not be centralized
1911: The #revolution will not be centralized. (The revolution that overthrew the Qing dynasty, and the entire imperial system, in #China, was decentralized. Individual provinces seceded one by one, over a relatively short period of time. When authorities in #Sichuan tried to cut off telegraph (viz.: Internet) connections to the outside world, people put messages on wooden toy boats and floated them down a river to announce their actions.)

@sophia Which is true not only for political revolution, but also for technological revolutions like renewable energy, currency etc, or socio-economical revolutions like the move towards cooperatives. Revolution has to come from the people, not from big organizations.
