: Keep in mind that insurrection=violence and you'll understand why many people, especially people with children, want nothing to do with it.

By that logic, we'd all still be serfs giving half our labor-power to the feudal lords who owned us (instead of fighting for the revolutions that brought the bourgeoisie and their liberalism into power).

In short: democracy came into the world by ANYTHING but democratic means.

Taking your support for liberalism as a given, what you're saying is that the bourgeois revolution was worth fighting for but the proletarian revolution isn't.

Speaking of family life and feudalism, smart guy, ever heard of the 'right to the first night'?
