Ah, a revolution of thought... interesting.

Though these new "radical" ideas and principles are said to be behind the:

American Revolution (1775–1783), Revolt of Dutch Patriots (1785), French Revolution (1789–1799), Irish Rebellion of 1798, Latin American wars of independence... and many more.

All were far from "bloodless", though I do agree they certainly did instill a dramatic change to the status quo of their time.

p.s.
Interesting side note for many here on ATS, the link posted by Johnze contains this interesting sub-section: Freemasonic Lodges

Well to be honest economic factors more or less drove those conflicts. Of course they would have lookd to enlightenment ideals to justify what was to come, much in th way religion is used, however the reality is far different.

I was really just suggesting mental liberation from influences such as the church was a bloodless affair.

Yes, I am of the mind that economic factors are the essential driving forces of almost all of history.

Your response was intelligent and thought-provoking... just the type I like.

As Plato has said, all things in the "real world" have prior roots in thoughts and minds.
