And here's some supporting argument:
The revolution began some time ago, but most failed to notice. It wasn't called a revolution, rather it was billed as a promise of fundamental change by Barack Obama.
So far, the revolution has been a mostly stealthy undertaking. Moves have been piecemeal, utilizing different agencies (or outside activist entities) in varying degrees to avoid disclosure of the level of fundamental change taking place. Individual data points seldom raise interest until connected to form a big picture.
The masses have been suckered into thinking revolution is limited to things like an armed civilian insurrection.
But look in Merriam-Webster's dictionary under Revolution and, among other entries, you'll find these definitions:
a : a sudden, radical, or complete changeb : a fundamental change in political organization; especially :the overthrow or renunciation of one government or ruler and the substitution of another by the governedc : activity or movement designed to effect fundamental changes in the socioeconomic situationSome of these definitions are clearly broad enough to cover what's taking place in America today.
Revolution and fundamental change are often synonymous. By Webster's definition, Mr. Obama promised revolution, and through various government activities since then, a revolutionary undertaking has long been underway.
