"All things grow out of the barrel of a gun."
Mao Tse Tung - "Problems of War and Strategy" (November 6, 1938), Selected Works, Vol. II
The governments of the US, the UK, France and Israel - along with their intelligence services, 'aid-agencies', international 'human-rights'- and 'environmental' organizations - spend hundreds of millions of dollars each year to create and to finance movements like Occupy or the Pirate Parties, 'democracy activists' like Alexei Navalny, 'opposition-leaders' like Mohamed ElBaradei or Mir-Hossein Mousavi and 'dissidents' of the ilk of Ai Weiwei, to co-opt and 'channel' local populations of targeted countries against their own political leadership. Empty democracy slogans and flashy colors aside, color revolutions are good old-fashioned regime change operations: destabilization without the tanks. The secret ingredient is a sophisticated science used to manipulate emotions and circumvent critical thinking. History shows, to much of the power elite humanity is seen as a collection of nerve endings to be pushed and pulled one way or the other, sometimes made to tremble in fear, sometimes made to salivate like Pavlov's dogs. These days the manipulation is so pervasive, so subtle, so effective, that even critical individuals at times must necessarily fail to recognize how often - or in what context - they have fallen prey. Of course fear is the most obvious emotion played upon to effect massive social change. One need only to reflect upon the last years, since 9/11, to know that fear is a primary instrument used to initiate and justify dangerous shifts in public policy.

Color revolutions are bound up in the larger geopolitical universe. A color revolution is a tool of foreign policy, the ultimate object being the geopolitical advantages gained by powerful financiers and the brain trust they employ. Understanding the geopolitical context and the motive is necessary to understanding the purpose of the color revolution (more HERE).
