English Synonyms and Antonyms

  1. revolt

    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 Anarchy refers to the condition of a state when human government is superseded or destroyed by factions or other causes.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 revolt in a sentence?

  1. Van Voorst:

    Paul's attitude toward slavery is much more an attitude of reform rather than revolt, he doesn't want a social revolution against the Roman Empire. But what he does say tends to be very strong toward reform of the system, and it is going to eventually end it.

  2. Erika Barcenas:

    Free determination (for indigenous communities) is something that's now being discussed for the first time since the Zapatista revolt.

  3. RAS CARDO REGGAE:

    my reggae was created to teach the message of truth to the people , especially the youths. Jamaican youths and others all over the world face a most daunting and doubting future because they will not know the true history from which they came. Black people have been mis -educated for years. How many black youths today in america know about the 1811-slave revolt in the louisiana -manchar swamp? how many knew that -christopher columbus- did not discover america? how many youths in jamaica knew that columbus did not discover jamaica? and what about the slave rebellion in morant bay? if we lose our history, we lose ourselves and identity as a people. My reggae teaches the people.

  4. Ted Cruz:

    This fevered pipe dream of Washington that at the convention they would parachute in some white knight who will save the Washington establishment, it is nothing less than a pipe dream, it ai n’t gon na happen. If it did happen, the people would quite rightly revolt. Senator Cruz only bolstered his case that he's gaining momentum in the battle against front-runner Trump with his Wisconsin victory. He scored 48 percent of the vote to Trump's 35 percent, and picked up the lion's share of the state's delegates. Ohio Gov. John Kasich trailed far behind. The race heads next, though, to New York state where Trump has a commanding lead in the polls. The criticism of having ties to the establishment is an unusual one for Cruz -- who has portrayed himself as an outsider fighting against what he calls.

  5. Charles Krauthammer:

    The problem in this race is not necessarily that there is a revolt of Trump-ites against the Washington establishment. [There] is a significant plurality.
