Re: Revolution - season 1 part 2 -

I wasn't talking about the fighting, as such (although if everyone has power, then everyone can fight back against any tyrannies that might arise, such as Monroe; and eventually a stable government can form).

I simply meant, why isn't it an objectively good thing to have electricity? I wouldn't want the "Revolution" to be a "revolution against electricity". People should not be forced to live in darkness. This isn't the Emberverse, after all.

(Remember, turning off the power is what enabled Monroe to take over in the first place...)
