For examples see Minneapolis hip~hop folks. My hero P.O.S or me Present. It's not hard to see why or how! Methods will change to meet the needs of the moment. Subject to change. People who are this type of life force in the culture tend to Enable the process of implementing the dreams & visions for that culture to begin to manifest. Meaning Makers (underground Seattle rappers are some examples) the folks who take the later part of the job, truth tellers are the previous to this group they allow for disruption of the norm by allowing for critical thinking. In St. Paul MN Maria Isa could be an example of Radical Revolutionary too. This group RR are more than artists or activists they work together in a hip~hop culture to change the world. They have a role & the whole rotation is not complete with out the Three working together. Although randomly it all can work too. This is a theory on transforming society & a radical revolutionary role with in. One Love!

The Revolutionary Left is the furthest point on the left-wing side of the political spectrum. It is generally considered to consist of three main beliefs: socialism, communism, and anarchism. Revolutionary Leftists are opposed to ideas such as capitalism, social classes, and organized religion, and believe that a revolution of the working class is necessary in order to create an egalitarian society with complete statelessness, classlessness, and equality among all people.

Unfortunately, the greedy money-grubbing CEOs and politicians of America, the very few people who actually benefit from capitalism, have slandered the Revolutionary Left with gigantic amounts of propaganda and convinced many members of the working class that Revolutionary Leftists are "evil." Slowly however, the Revolutionary Left is coming back into style, with a recent poll indicating that one third of Americans prefer socialism, communism, or anarchism to capitalism, and another third saying they are unsure.
Don't believe what the rich businessmen and politicians tell you; the Revolutionary Left is the only political ideology based around the needs of the common working class people.

The war most American schoolkids have continuously hammered into their brains, without really understanding.

In brief and colloquial terms for slow-witted teens:

Colonists were pretty pissed off at mama-san Britain for the policies she created after the French & Indian War, so toss in a shitload of taxes and acts, and you've got even more rage. Colonists start getting bratty in regards to paying the taxes and obeying the acts they see as unfair, and British throw even more at the bastards, without warning. Now REALLY angry, colonists start banding together thus boycotts and protests (think Boston Tea Party) erupt. Thomas Paine steps in with "Common Sense" and says "Hey, colonial dudes, independence from the Brits = pretty sweet idea." At first people call him insane, but soon enough THE WAR BEGINS. Yada yada Loyalists and Patriots yada George III. Ben Franklin goes to France and gets them to help the colonists out. Brits first seem to take the lead. Colonists eventually regain strength and topple Brits in the end. July 4th, 1776 = Declaration of Independence, among other things, but hey man, THE WAR WAS STILL GOING ON WHEN THEY WROTE IT. Articles of Confederation (American Constitution Sr.) is pretty much the nail in the Brit/Colonial connection coffin.

Voilà. A new nation.

note: I'm not a professor, so this of course is not some exact, blow-by-blow description of the war.
I hope you now change your definition of the Revolutionary War, American. Better cross out that "Yeah, the British were like TOTAL DICKS, so we were like FUCK THAT, WE'RE AMERICA, so we fought 'em. Wait, England = Britain, right?"
