Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
The problem with this type of revolution is tactical. Instead of the masses engaging the police on the streets, it might be more effective for small groups to engage with the 100s, if not 1,000s, of soft targets such as power, media, network, traffic, and commerce. The state cannot yet physically police all places at all times. I think the police and military, after hundreds of years of practice, have found effective ways to shut down any street protests and they need not be as deadly as Napoleon's tactics on 13 Vendémiaire.
