Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
... the connotation that Sara is using is Political Revolution ... a violent replacement of one political system by another.

"Revolutionary change" in the sense of the replacement of our technological system by another, accompanied by some form of dramatic political change ... that's inevitable. Its a matter of when, not if.

Whether that dramatic political change will be something with a family resemblance to the New Deal, or something with a family resemblance to the Puritan Revolution, American Revolution, French Revolution, Russian Revolution, etc. ... I hope and work for the former (and it seems that Sara does as well), while fearing that it may be the latter if we don't get moving in time.

I've been accused of being a Marxist, yet while Harpo's my favourite, it's Groucho I'm always quoting. Odd, that.
