In the 19th century in China, the Boxers were having a rebellion against the foreign goods and thoughts. During the rebellion, the Boxers killed thousands of people and revolution is similar to a rebellion. It usually kills many people and it is also similar that people want changes and reforms. The difference is that revolution has a bigger consequences than rebellion. In revolutions it is not just a change, it is a turning point in history. There are also many kinds of causes for a revolution.
First, poverty is a big cause of a revolution. People get in to poverty because they don’t have enough money to buy enough food they necessarily need. Even if people work hard to earn money, they might not get enough money to live comfortably because of discrimination.
Second, treating people unequally is also a cause of a revolution. People in a country might have different classes and the people in higher classes will be treated better than lower class people. Since this happens, many of the lower class people have a lot of complains about it. All the people want to be treated equally.
When a revolution has been caused, there could be many consequences such as reforms, laws changing, and a ruler abdicating. People have a revolution to change something because they don’t like the current situation. To stop people marching and shouting for changes, they might need to have a reform or change laws to make their situation better and to stop them. However, in some cases the ruler might not be able to reform or change the laws because if it changes, the country might get uncontrollable. Sometimes, if the people really don’t like the ruler and they don’t think the current ruler is not doing the correct job as a leader, the ruler might have to abdicate to stop the revolution like Tsar abdicating in Russian Revolution.
In conclusion, I think having a revolution is a big change and it will be interesting to learn about revolutions other than Russian, for example, the American and the French. I think the cause most of the revolutions are usually poverty and treating people unequally. When the revolution ends successfully, it there would be a reforms, laws changing or a ruler abdicating.
I think a revolution will not happen again today, but there will be some changes. One of the reasons why people have changes are because they don’t agree with others, and if they think the others ideas are wrong, they might want to change it. Usually many people don’t agree with the laws and they might want to change the laws, so it is more fair to many people. For example, people have different ideas about abortion. Some people say it should be prohibited by law because the baby is also has a life and we should not kill people. However, some people might say that it should be legal because some people might get pregnant when they don’t want to be.
