In a revolution there must be two sides. Those in favor, and those opposed. At the time of the revolution neither side knows which is the right side. This was true in 1776, and it remains true today. It is only when the issue is settled and the winners write the history do the following generations fall in line with the righteousness of the victors, at least until history repeats itself and there is a subsequent revolution with a potentially different outcome.
In the case of the American Revolution the revolutionaries sought to overthrow British rule characterized by what the Parliament and the King viewed as legitimate taxation to pay for the defense of the colonies, and what the revolutionaries viewed as an outrageous imposition without a voice in the government.
Today we have a government with three self-serving branches that are divided and increasingly ineffective. We have at least three or four insurgent groups all opposed to this government for different reasons. Of course this allows the central government to divide them and maintain their authority. Then we have those who defend the government just as those who prospered under British rule defended the status quo in 1776.
I wonder, is there a right side to be on?
