Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Note that China's three biggest failed revolutions from the bottom were set off by religious movements: a Daoist sect in the case of the Yellow Turban Rebellion (which launched the fall of Han Dynasty China); the White Lotus Buddhist sect in the case of the Red Turban Rebellion against the Mongol overlords; a Christian cult in the case of the Taiping Rebellion. The Boxer Rebellion was also launched by a Daoist sect.
