Discussion

In stories of revolution, our sympathies can be directed to either side, to sympathy for the freedom fighters against an oppressive regime or support for the law enforcement officers who fight self-promoting criminals.

Revolution is a theme of our teenage years as nature impels us to rebel against parental control and flee the family fold to spread the genetic seed far and wide.

Revolution is also scary for adults as it threatens to disrupt and destroy the system that they have learned and accepted as law.

'Revolt' is the 8th of Georges Polti's 36 Dramatic Situations.
