Music Theme for Sunday December 1, 2013: Revolution
Any application of a definition of the word is on the table for exploration.
Go for any revolution that inspires you and uplifts your spirits. Have some FUN!
Revolution definition–with which I’m not quite satisfied, hence my commentary.
1a forcible overthrow of a government or social order in favor of a new system. [I believe the Czechs in 1989 would take issue with parts of this definition as they employed NO force to oust the government. They rang their keys in the streets by the thousands. Among other things that spilled no blood and committed no forcible acts of any violence.]
(the Revolution) the American Revolution. [Obviously NOT the only apparently ‘positive’ Revolutions to ever take place in the world.]
(often the Revolution) (in Marxism) the class struggle that is expected to lead to political change and the triumph of communism. [Take note of the employment of the word ‘often’ and ‘communism’–I consider this an outdated assumption. But that’s just my view of things.]
a dramatic and wide-reaching change in the way something works or is organized or in people’s ideas about it:marketing underwent a revolution [Well, marketing isn’t an awful example, it’s just very limited, isn’t it?]
2an instance of revolving:one revolution a second [I think these three are pretty straightforward and free of bias. How about you?]
the movement of an object in a circular or elliptical course around another or about an axis or center:observing the revolution about the axis of rotation
a single orbit of one object around another or about an axis or center.

Tracy Chapman’s take on Revolution.
Note: Don’t bother arguing–I’m in Control here–sort of. Let’s define control, shall we?
Note to Note: No one has to be on time.
Note to Note Again: Everyone is welcome to join in — or not. No pressure. No pressure.
