was a regional secession from a pretty weak and tame constitutional monarchy. The England of the following decades wasn't much more or less tyrannical or violent than the America.
Anyway, I see your point of view, but it looks to me like the history of revolutions since the 1800s has been much more about income redistribution and less about protecting property/rights. I guess everyone is free to hope his ideas are covered in the next revolution, but the track records of revolution are generally a temporary carnival of blood, crime and revenge, followed by a return to normal human nature / corruption; some freedom, some oppression.
I still think you're expecting a utopia, no less than those dinosaur marxists who still happen to be alive.
The internet is good for those who use it to learn (tiny %), but other technologies bode ill for liberty.
Anyway, good game.
