2. The action or process of resisting authority, control, or convention: “an act of teenage rebellion“.
A fascinating phenomenon, most certainly on the rise in our world today, rebellion is a symptom of the young rejecting the control of the old, the new and fresh unwilling to compromise with the traditional and already established. When we reach our teenage, we begin to see the world in new eyes, we are eager to show our elders the revolutionary ways of our thinking, and with all of that comes upheaval, violent outbursts, emotional explosions and a whole load of hormonal powered declarations.
So are revolutions a symptom of an onset of something young and new on the planet? Is that its way of saying out with old, in with the new?
