While political violence has of late been calmer, 2020-2021 saw a rise of violent protests ad insurrections over police, race and national politics. Many have seen similarities with the Revolution era of the 1760s and 1770s. Write a 1000-word typed paper that compares and contrasts the political violence of the American Revolution Era (eg Stamp Act riots, Townshend Acts, Boston Tea party) with the recent violence involving the 2020 Election (6 January) and protests in 2020 over police brutality and over Confederate statues. How are these events similar? How do they differ? Consider the circumstances of 2020-what was going on that year—with the circumstances of the 17690s/1770s. Consider how people today have reacted to the recent incidents of violence, then consider how people in the 1700s reacted. Do you feel these events have any similarities? Is violence to make a political point ever justified? And finally, do these events signal a new revolution? Or are they just isolated events, as we saw in the 1910s and 1960s.
