Rebellion and insurrection is the natural and necessary way people change their government structure. To protect themselves governments typically organize so that they cannot be removed using the sanctioned institutions they create, such as elections. They also pass laws against rebellion and insurrection. As a historic example, after the Boston Tea Party Britain passed the Coercive Acts to discipline the Colonies. The “Intolerable Acts”, as they were called by the Colonists, only heightened the resolve of the rebels.
