10 Books That Inspired Revolution, Because The Written Word Is A Powerful Tool
There is an undeniable revolutionary vibe in the air these days. The books about revolutions that tell the stories of people who fight against oppression in many different forms. Some of these stories are based on real rebellions in real places. Others take place in locations that we can only imagine under circumstances that seem simultaneously far-fetched and a little too likely. All of these books about revolutions and uprisings can serve both as a source of inspiration and as a warning of things that are yet to come. Green on Blue by Elliot Ackerman. Aziz and his older brother Ali are coming of age in a village amid the pine forests and endless mountains of eastern Afghanistan.
The planet Haven slides closer to revolution against its parent nation, Federal America. Everett Wells, the fair-minded planetary governor, has tried to create a peaceful resolution, but his failure has caused the government to send Asha Stanton, a ruthless federal operative, to quell the insurgency. Wells quickly realizes that Stanton has the true power. Unlike Wells, Stanton is prepared to resort to extreme methods to break the back of the gathering rebellion, including unleashing Colonel Robert Semmes, the psychopathic commander of her soldiers, on the Havenites. But the people of Haven have their own ideas. They are not the beaten-down masses of Earth, but men and women with the courage and fortitude to tame a new world. Damian Ward is such a resident of Haven, a retired veteran and decorated war hero, who has watched events on his adopted world with growing apprehension.

If there's one thing the demonstrations in Egypt, Tunisia and Yemen show, it's that the power ultimately belongs to the people. And sometimes, that's the power to topple a leader. Considering what's happening in the headlines, we thought we'd take a look at 12 instances of mass uprisings that have taken place in sci-fi movies, TV shows and books. But first—there's a distinction we want to make: Not all revolts, revolutions and uprisings are created equal, and an armed resistance along the lines of what we see in Independence Day and The Matrix holds different weight when compared to something like labor strikes or resistance seen in films like Metropolis and Moon. Here are people as a mass group rising up against some form of injustice that they see in their government or rulers above them. They don't have to be spontaneous, but they seek to overthrow or otherwise alter the existing power structure through the only avenue open to them: rebellion, riots and violence. The Stargate franchise has themes of rebellion and revolution from the movie that started the franchise all the way through the 10 seasons that continued the story.
