Revolution: The idea that humans can transform the world according to a plan.
From 1789 to 1799, a series of events that took place in France brought a new meaning to what we still call nowadays a revolution.
Nowadays The French Revolution is still considered as one of the most important events in human history. In a climate of inequality and absolutist politics people began to think differently.
What if we break the rules? What if we took as many assumptions as we can and turn it the other way?
What if church and state were separated?
What if people were equal and could enjoy inalienable rights?
What if we destroy the Old Regime?
What if we kill the monarchy and replaces it with republics and democracy?
What if we cut off the king’s head?
I recently began to have a go with the Revolution technique.
Some ideas that comes out of of my head might sound crazy, but whenever I feel like I am going too far, I always try to remember about these revolutionaries.
With a “what if” you can actually change the world.
