The History Files - episode #12: Conditions For Revolution

Caricature of the trial of Charlotte Corday (1793), famous for assassinating Marat, one of the prime instigators of the Reign of Terror.
 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).
