     Almost the whole year round of 2011, an astounding series of social-revolution events took place in the Middle East. The world anxiously watched as, every few months, a sharp-conflict between people and the local government plunged into the public’s eyes of the world. All of the twenty-odd anti-government protest-demonstrations across the Asia, collectively called The Lily-Revolution after they happened, were once part of The Color-Revolution, which originated from the East-European countries in early 21st century, including Georgia’s Rose-Revolution, Ukraine’s Orange-Revolution, Kyrgyzstan’s Tulip-Revolution and Lebanon’s Cedar-Revolution, now were gradually fermented and propagated around the world, especially in the countries and regions of the Middle East and the Southeast Asia, which are traditionally conservative. theocratic and authoritarian.

     These anti-government march-parade-demonstration, glistening like a series of sparks, had been first time reported and broadcasted worldwide only a few hours after they broke out. They were continuously reported and paid close attention to until they developed and aggravated to the fateful results. With the development of political situations, rather quickly, they were irreversibly on a collision course with governments.

     These Lily-Revolution caused unexpected results such as government-collapse, dictator-flee and tyrant-jailed or-killed clearly visible around the world. People’s appeals to require democracy and end dictatorship were quickly responsed and triggered more compassion across the countries as these protests had been cracked down by the regimes. When these protests slammed into the social systems of the islamic countries, and then were brutally repressed by the governments, the immense social kinetic energy was transformed into violence, producing a davastating destroy that had serious impact both on people and the governments. The results and influence from these violence made big trauma, left huge social scars and couldn’t easily be healed in a short time, some of which would outstretch to economy, politics and diplomacy.

     Although these impact events were of considerable social-progress fot the countries, they also especially piqued public curiosity and interest of the world. Photographs of each collision made the headlines of television, newscast and papers, and also were posted on the internet. These were possibly the most open democratic endeavor in the history of these countries. The faces or situations of these islamic world were gradually changed before our very eyes. And for the very first time, most of other countries like non-democracy or not in complete democracy came to appreciate the fact that they themselves live on a similar situation, a country of conservatism, theocrat and authoritarianism subject to upheaval or turmoil by random social unfairness, corruption and dictatorship. That realization is not surprise to many, but it should have been to some. One of the great truths revealed by the study of all kinds of social systems is that collisions between people and governments are relatively commonplace, at least in social terms, and are even more frequent in their democratization process.
