English Synonyms and Antonyms

  1. disintegration

    The essential idea of revolution is a change in the form of government or constitution, or a change of rulers, otherwise than as provided by the laws of succession, election, etc.; while such change is apt to involve armed hostilities, these make no necessary part of the revolution. The revolution by which Dom Pedro was dethroned, and Brazil changed from an empire to a republic, was accomplished without a battle, and almost without a shot. Anarchy refers to the condition of a state when human government is superseded or destroyed by factions or other causes. Lawlessness is a temper of mind or condition of the community which may result in anarchy. Confusion, disorder, riot, and tumult are incidental and temporary outbreaks of lawlessness, but may not be anarchy. Insubordination is individual disobedience. Sedition is the plotting, rebellion the fighting, against the existing government, but always with the purpose of establishing some other government in its place. When rebellion is successful it is called revolution; but there may be revolution without rebellion; as, the English Revolution of 1688. A revolt is an uprising against existing authority without the comprehensive views of change in the form or administration of government that are involved in revolution. Anarchy, when more than temporary disorder, is a proposed disintegration of society, in which it is imagined that social order might exist without government. Slaves make insurrection; soldiers or sailors break out in mutiny; subject provinces rise in revolt. Compare SOCIALISM.

How to use disintegration in a sentence?

  1. Justin Amash:

    True to Washington's fears, Americans have allowed government officials, under assertions of expediency and party unity, to ignore the most basic tenets of our constitutional order : separation of powers, federalism and the rule of law, the result has been the consolidation of political power and the near disintegration of representative democracy.

  2. Polish Finance Minister Mateusz Szczurek:

    The message that I would like to get across is that free movement of labor is a crucial part of the common market but not the only one, the fact that thousands of British firms operate in Poland, the fact that City banks all trade Polish financial instruments, that is all part of the deal. Once you start removing pieces of it, you may wind up with a far bigger disintegration of the common market than you initially bargained for.

  3. Rachel Denber:

    I don't think it's fair to expect countries to have perfect transitions overnight, or maybe even in 24 years (since Soviet disintegration in the region, in 1991). But I do think it's fair to expect them to not regress significantly.

  4. Nikolai Patrushev:

    They don't need a strong Russia. On the contrary, they need to weaken our country as much as possible. To achieve this goal, the Russian Federation's disintegration is not ruled out as well, this will open access to the richest resources for the United States, which believes that Russia possesses them undeservingly.

  5. Boris Johnson:

    Brexit is becoming soft to the point of disintegration.
