In the winter of 1973 the U.S. faced several crises. The OPEC oil embargo caused gasoline shortages and record oil prices. The Dow Jones Industrial Average lost almost 49% and a deep recession stagnated the national economy, inflation approached 12%. The war in Vietnam expanded to Cambodia. The Watergate scandal polluted the Office of the President. Richard Nixon was accused of obstructing justice. Articles of impeachment were being drafted by the Senate. An new group and widespread group, The People's Environmental Protection League shut down 40% of U.S. rail traffic. A splinter group of economists incited the largest tax revolt in U.S. history. A new economic force built on trade and barter grew out of the secession of a small town in the Texas Hill Country and was dividing the country. Then in July 1974 a demonstration in Despot City attended by 300,000 staged history's greatest bloodless coup as the whole world watched.


Excerpt

A complex of motivations drove Warren, but the seed came from John F. Kennedy: “Those who make peaceful revolution impossible, make violent revolution necessary.” It fit a niche, reinforced the foundation, and was more true than any other truth.
Oppress revolution, try to contain it, and it will find a way out. Human tenacity can be an attitude of high passion and spirit, and a relentless, permeating vapor. There was no room in it for another interpretation. It leaves only one way. They only understand one way. Frederick Douglas said, “Power concedes nothing without a struggle.” Kennedy said, “Those who make peaceful revolution impossible make violent revolution necessary.” Put together it becomes Unconditional power, which concedes nothing without a struggle, makes violent revolution necessary.
