Rebellion means to rebel, and there are many ways that this can be done. There are rebellion quotes that talk about civil disobedience that is peaceful yet highly effective, and others that discuss violent uprisings that are bloody and that can be deadly at times. The Arab Spring in the Middle East was a rebellion, and the current conflict in Syria is a result of people trying to rebel against a repressive government regime. Sometimes rebellion is necessary in order to bring about change but when it turns violent then further problems compound the situation and the end results hoped for as a result of the rebellion may not occur. Sometimes crimes are committed during a rebellion and this does not help the cause, in fact it can be damaging to those who simply want change to happen.
