Chapter Six: Column
A revolution is a journey, it is also a building.
A revolution has a foundation, rooted in the experience of injustice.
It has levels.
It has connections and conduits.
It requires mechanisms of support.
The rebellion against the Empire mirrored the revolutionary movement among the Observers, it was held together by thin cabals made-up of loose associations and sympathizers, tightened like the individual strands of thread woven together to form a length of rope.
The hope of billions of people were held together like a spider’s web.
Cabals became columns capable of supporting the concerted action of masses of people, providing more security and a base from which to launch their aspirations, their vision of a future without the over-control of tyranny.
A sustained endeavor requires stability.
Revolutionary movements will never become realized without the support of such columns, they are the pillars that hold up the vault of their ideals.
With proper support the edifice they are constructing can take on the aspect of a mountain. It can remake the surface of a world.
Such is the ambition of the rebel.
