In this episode of The History Files, Gordon cites three examples from history that illustrate national conditions which usually lead to revolution, sometimes even several waves of revolution.
Bonus: stay tuned after the sign-off to hear Neb and Gordon ramble on about Iran, pop-culture wars, and that inexplicable statue of Lenin in Fremont (a neighborhood on the ship canal north of Seattle).
