I don't know who this guy is, but he's full of crap. Revolution happens when enough people are convinced that they have nothing to lose. There
aren't that many people.
Most of us have something to lose if there were a revolution. For most of us, we get enough food, we have a place to live, we get enough of life's
necessities. We may not think we get enough of them, but overall life is tolerable.
Before there is any sort of revolution, there will be riots, people amassing to protest and to destroy. Those protests could merge into an overall
revolution, sure. If they were happening. But they're not happening.
Back in the 'Sixties we did have riots in many cities. If there was going to be a revolution, that would have been the time. There were anti-war
protests, riots in the poor sections of the cities (based on racial inequality and police abuses), political protests of all sorts, even acts of
domestic terrorism. Talk of revolution was in the air. "The revolution will not be televised" was the cry. It came to nothing, because too many
people had something to lose.
