Sorry to say I subscribe to Gordon Tullock’s view: revolutions are palace coup is based on inter-elite rivalry and struggles for succession.
As Tullock observed, as long as autocrat has a moderately competent secret police willing to torture and kill, he will stay in power. His main challenge is to reward informers well and punished coup plotters severely.
The Arab spring vindicates this where the main game was about which side the army top brass was on in succession struggle under ageing dictators.
