Within our world, it seems the concept of the Constant Revolution is lost on many. The spurned want to discuss the evils of Pacifican-Past. The uninformed want to bring up the inefficiencies or deficits they think still exist. The propagandists would tell you that the Constant Revolution was merely a way for Pacifican leadership to distort our pseudo-philosophy to whatever they saw fit.
In this short entry I will explain the concept, its goals, and its practical applications while dismissing common misconceptions on the idea of:
The Constant Revolution
Any student of Darwin can explain, at a base level, the theory of evolution: The idea that organisms adapt to their environments based on their circumstance and need. The concept of the Constant Revolution was crafted in the image of the evolution within our natural world. Seeing the advantages that adaptability has within the animal kingdom, it only makes sense to bring that same adaptive quality to an alliance.
The Constant Revolution is an idea that advocates for constant reevaluation. A common misconception is that the Concept itself argues for continual change and trial-and-error type scenarios to be used and reused within different context to try and form a more perfect Order. Nothing could be further from the truth. The idea is to constantly reevaluate oneself and the Order, to analyze and identify what can change, what should change, and what will change for the greater good of the alliance. It is not just a systematic concept, but a personal one as well. The first question any ruler might ask themselves before changing their alliance: What they can do to improve themselves and be the change?
The common claim is that this Concept allowed Pacifica's leadership to distort our alliance's shape and motivations until it fit with their agenda. While no alliance can claim an entirely pure history, bereft of corruption or its share of mistakes, the Concept itself is not as open to abuse as one might think at first glance. Not only is the idea designed to enable swift change when needed, it was also built purely from a scientific standpoint. The only change that can truly be justified through the concept of the Constant Revolution has to provide empirical evidence supporting the change. We deal purely in the Material. No moral concepts nor emotional states influence the Constant Revolution. It is purely motivated by material facts and empirical data. Nothing more, nothing less.
While no ideology is immune from the corruption of man, the Constant Revolution strives to raise itself above unflinching ancient ideologues and become less of a set-in-stone concept and more of a progression towards a more perfect Pacifica.
