REVOLUTION, n. As used by apologists for the Castro dynasty, “regime.” As in “protecting the revolution” and “Committees for the Defense of the Revolution.” As regards the latter, and as is obvious, nothing is more revolutionary than networks of neighborhood informers reporting to government police agencies.
