The Two Types Of Revolution

Reconsider you’re understanding of the word “revolution.”

There are basically 2 types: we can make a revolution when we travel in a circle, or we can make a revolution when we overthrow a system.

The word has Latin roots with “re” meaning back (think “reverse”) and “volvere” meaning roll. Either we roll back around the circle, or we roll back over the prior circle (reconsider the word “overturn” too).

There’s a time and a place for each.

Sometimes we need to walk down a well-traveled path.

Other times we need to blaze a new trail or cut a fresh groove.

We should never be doing all of one and none of the other.
