    Revolutions are never televised as they happen
    Propaganda is televised as revolution happens
    Revolutions are televised only on the history channel
    And history is his story
    He is he who has control
    Revolution being linear in nature is never complete
    Revolution …...check

    Thanks for the reminder Poet… check
