10His name is Dr. Ralph La Guardia.<br />
11<br />
12And his new method works so well...<br />
13<br />
14That he was able to <strong><u>cancel his own knee replacement surgery</u></strong> after using it for just a few weeks!<br />

20Dr. La Guardia says this new method only takes a few minutes each day.<br />
21<br />
22And since it&rsquo;s so easy&hellip; thousands of other Americans have already started using it with incredible results.<br />

49<p style="color:#FFFFFF;font-size:3px;">pol and the autonomy of the state Skocpol introduces the concept of the social revolution, to be contrasted with a political revolution. While the latter aims to change the polity, the former is &quot;rapid, basic transformations of a society&#39;s state and class structures; and they are accompanied and in part carried through by class-based revolts from below&quot;. Social revolutions are a grassroots movement by nature because they do more than change the modalities of power, they aim to transform the fundamental social structure of society. As a corollary, this means that some &quot;revolutions&quot; may cosmetically change the organization of the monopoly over power without engineering any true change in the social fabric of society. Her analysis is limited to studying the French, Russian, and Chinese revolutions. Skocpol identifies three stages of the revolution in these cases (which she believes can be extrapolated and generalized), each
50  accordingly accompanied by specific structural factors which in turn influence the social results of the political action. The Collapse of the Old-Regime State: this is an automatic consequence of certain structural conditions. She highlights the importance of international military and economic competition as well as the pressure of the misfunctioning of domestic affairs. More precisely, she sees the breakdown of the governing structures of society influenced by two theoretical actors, the &quot;landed upper class&quot; and the &quot;imperial state&quot;. Both could be considered as &quot;partners in exploitation&quot; but in reality competed for resources: the state (monarchs) seek to build up military and economic power to ascertain their geopolitical influence. The upper class works in a logic of profit maximization, meaning preventing as much as possible the state to extract resources. All three revolutions occurred, Skocpol argues, because states failed to be able to &quot;mo
51 bilize extraordinary resources from the society and implement in the process reforms requiring structural transformations&quot;. The apparently contradicting policies were mandated by a unique set of geopolitical competition and modernization. &quot;Revolutionary political crises occurred because of the unsuccessful attempts of the Bourbon, Romanov, and Manchu regimes to cope with foreign pressures.&quot; Skocpol further concludes &quot;the upshot was the disintegration of centralized administrative and military machinery that had theretofore provided the solely unified bulwark of social and political order&quot;. Peasant Uprisings: more than simply a challenge by the landed upper class in a difficult context, the state needs to be challenged by mass peasant uprisings in order to fall. These uprisings must be aimed not at the political structures per se but at the upper class itself so that the political revolution becomes a social one as well. Skocpol quotes Barrington Moore who fa
52 mously wrote: &quot;peasants  provided the dynamite to bring down the old building&quot;. Peasant uprisings are more effective depending on two given structural socioeconomic conditions: the level of autonomy (from both an economic and political point of view) peasant communities enjoy, and the degree of direct control the upper class on local politics. In other words, peasants must be able to have some degree of agency in order to be able to rebel. If the coercive structures of the state and/or the landowners keep a very close check on peasant activity, then there is no space to foment dissent. Societal Transformation: this is the third and decisive step after the state organization has been seriously weakened and peasant revolts become widespread against landlords. The paradox of the three revolutions Skocpol studies is that stronger centralized and bureaucratic states emerge after the revolts. The exact parameters depend, again, on structural factors as opposed to voluntarist fac
53 tors: in Russia, the new state found most support in the industrial base, rooting itself in cities. In China, most of the support for the revolt had been in the countryside, thus the new polity was grounded in rural areas. In France, the peasantry was not organized enough, and the urban centers not potent enough so that the new state was not firmly grounded in anything, partially explaining its artificiality. Here is a summary of the causes and consequences of social revolutions in these three countries, according to Skoc</p>
