I believe in a libertarian revolution, and don't see how that can beg for government tyranny. Also, can't a revolution be non-violent?

Yes, it can be non-violent. Iceland had a revolution after the 2008 collapse. Many of the bankers were jaield or kicked out of the country. Foreign investors, were furious. In Latvia, the US, Ireland and everywhere else they bailed out the banks with taxpayer money. And yet, the teaxpayer is like okay, whatever, at least we don't have a welfare state, right? But we do, a welfare state for the 1%.

Foreign investors, were furious.
