  •  ECONOMIC revolutions are messy - (3+ / 0-)

    The American Revolution was POLITICAL, all about local control and rule in the Colonies vs. distant control from Britain - were the Colonies to grow and benefit themselves or the mother country?

    Nobody was starving - in deed the colonies were relatively prosperous compared to the mother country.

    ECONOMIC revolutions - where people are jobless and hungry - get messy and violent fast.  People have nothing left to lose.   Think France, Russia and countless peasant revolts throughout history.

    Life isn't fair but you should try to leave it fairer than you found it.
