    508 words
    The pushing forces behind the revolution were the ideas, leaders and movements. Without the three of these things working in unison the possibility of achieving revolution would be near impossible.

The first to be derived and the most important of the three were the ideas. Without them the other two would not have been possible. Liberty was the most prominent idea of...
