Revoluton or Reformation

Here is a great post by Enola Gay.  I think she really has some great thoughts this topic.  However our Founders said from time to time the Tree of Liberty must be watered with the blood of both tyrants and patriots.

Samuel Adams said, "It does not take a majority to prevail... but rather an irate, tireless minority, keen on setting brushfires of freedom in the minds of men."
Samuel Adams

So I agree in part that the reformation or revolution, if you will, began in the minds of men first:  
     "What do we mean by the Revolution? The war? That was no part of the revolution; it was only an effect and consequence of it. The revolution was in the minds of the people, and this was effected from 1760–1775, in the course of fifteen years, before a drop of blood was shed at Lexington." (John Adams)

"No oppression was ever overthrown by a bunch of readers  and philosophers. Liberty is usually dirty and bloody work, and if we don't have the option of providing our masters with a real  fight, then they will perennially call our wussy  bluff." Quote from Boston T. Party's Boston's Reply to Critics of "Molon Labe"
