What is a revolutionary? Is it someone that shoots first and asks questions later, someone that overturns cars and tries to bring pain to those they do not understand? Personally I find that's no revolutionary, instead I think that's someone with a lot of pain, someone that doesn't know how to make the hurting stop. I know pain, I've been to many of the same places today's revolutionaries have been. I believe that corporate greed or even just greed in general has been a thorn in the side of humanity for longer than anyone knows. As humans we've tried so many times to pull that thorn out only to drive it deeper.
Look throughout history and see, what have we done? Nations rise out of nothing and their imperfect rule structure not only allows, but in fact demands for the unequal distribution of wealth and power. Some people rise through the ranks, becoming individuals with the power to command legions. In order to maintain their addiction the powerful individuals take more and more from those with less power, the poor. History has shown us that this only works out for the powerful individuals for a short period of time, the poor always wise up eventually, they realize they outnumber the powerful individuals by a great deal. The poor violently destroy the powerful individuals and their own nation along with them, only to rebuild that nation and restart the cycle of rise and fall yet again.
Is that what we want for ourselves? Do we really want to continue this cycle of theft and violence, greed and revenge? We have the power to put an end to that cycle once and for all.
The rich and powerful do not go out and steal from people personally, they use their subjects, or employees, to do that for them. They use their employees to cheat their employees out of everything they own, then they give their employees a tiny portion back to keep them pacified. If you are unhappy with this arrangement, of which you have fully agreed to, you need not throw stones or burn cars, simply stop working for those that use you to steal from yourself and your kin. Without you they cannot steal from you and others.
Be the change you wish to see in the world. Band together with like minded revolutionaries, help each other to survive by sharing what you have and what you produce with each other. If you make it so others must pay for what you have then they must obtain money and in so doing they will work for thieves. If you refuse to share with others then you are only helping the rich obtain more slaves. If you band together and help each other then you will send a powerful message to the rich and powerful. "We do not need you."
A nation born in flames lives in flames. We have a choice, we can overthrow thieves with a violent coup and start this viscous cycle yet again or we can put a stop to all of this nonsense, turn our backs to that system as if it were not even there, just walk away. If anyone else desires to walk away why not lend them a helping hand, perhaps they'll return the favor some day.
We don't need money... We need each other.
