-When a society undergoes perpetual economic regression, the people undergo unbearable sufferings. If their guardians are responsible for their woes, they (the people) may demand a change of guardians. In the case of the French and Russian revolutions too, the people faced acute poverty, illiteracy, insurmountable miseries, social neglect, and deprivation. When it became unbearable, they revolted. In the French Revolution (1789–99) the Bourbon monarch, and in the Russian Revolution (1917) the Tsars, were assassinated and their monarchies overthrown. Deprivation and lack of means can make a person beastly.

The UDHR (Universal Declaration of Human Rights) states it thus: “Whereas it is essential, if man is not to be compelled to have recourse, as a last resort, to rebellion against tyranny and oppression, that human rights should be protected by the rule of law”.And hence my emphasis on 'Implement the Forgotten Constitution of India for ‘Liberty and Dignity’.See Section 4.1 I of my book.
