As John Locke believed I too believe the right of revolution has but one meaning and that is that the people in a society have the right to choose who will represent them in government They have the right to elect another government or leader when the one originally in control is not doing what is in the peoples best interest We call this right democracy A recent example which best illustrates this is the election in Serbia where President Slobodan Milosevic has allegedly lost the election but is refusing to turn over power to the newly elected official violating every principle of the right of revolution or democratic selection processIn order to fully understand what is happening we must examine historically the event leading up to the election Reporters and politicians have touted the Serbia-Kosovo problem as being the result of ancient ethnic hatred but that is not the case The people of this region lived together peacefully for centuries and any conflicts that have arisen amongst them were based not on ethnic origin but on other things like class and ruling party just to name a few In the late 1980s Slobodan Milosevic came into power in Serbia His first actions were directed against Kosovo Albanian dominance in the province He removed virtually all of the Albanians rights their leadership role in government their party and their parliament He further removed their control of their Albanian-language library and the administration of their school system This was the classic case of human rights violations Milosevic took away their right to govern themselves and as a result he gained the attention of the United States Congress under the interest of human rights Annual human rights reports submitted to the White House by the Department of State read like a prison record when it came to Serbian abuses of the people of Kosovo When the Serbs took control they sought to consolidate their hold on lands
