Of course you do, but it all starts with peace, diplomacy and non-violence as well as protest. If our government decides to drone bomb a peaceful protest than we are obviously allowed to defend ourselves, but that alone would bring about civil war. A war that could lead to a hegelian dialectic situation. Look at the Bolshevik revolution for reference. That's why I'm saying to be aware of those calling for revolutions.

But the government will never do that. They will do like in the past, having terrorists (fascists, commies, ISIS, whatever) take the blame and prevent counter strikes. Terrorism is newspeak for terror and terror is an age old way for THOSE ALREADY IN POWER to maintain it. Terror cannot work if you don't already wield enough power because nobody likes to submit to violent people if another choice is feasible.
