What's more beneficial: Revolution or Evolution?

All of us had seen the so called Egyptian revolution on our TV channels, whom Karl Marx would, without wasting a fraction of second, recall as ideological state apparatuses trying to perpetuate the ruling class's point of view. But how many of us actually had thought over the need for revolution? Revolution, Revolution and Revolution is always talked about but the reason, the real one, is never debated. The Egyptian revolution geared by social media hypes ended up not different than a social media debate which pretty much clarifies the wrongly perpetuated need for a revolution. Turn the page, and think over evolution. Isn't evolution what we need? Is this the age of revolution or evolution? It's not 1789, it's modernly-trimmed society of 2013. do they need revolution? will they accept revolution? With media at hands, as Marx calls it, won't the ruling class turn the revolution toward its hidden goals?

  • Oct 22 2013: the point of revolution is evolution...these countries could move nowhere but to worse ... freedom, truth , innovation are needed to evolute ... those values are missing today in most of the communities in the world.
    for the devastations and the disapointement of the media etc ....it s a natural consequence ... people just need to focus more on how to make the revolution achieve its goal .and not to let those years of suffer and the souls of the innocent people go in vain
