What long-term positive achievements have radical and extremist movements achieved?
In particular, I'd like to know about movements that advocate violence as a method of large-scale change. Have there been any problems solved with violence? Are there any countries that have been subjected to violent revolutions that are thriving today? In the United States in particular, are there any movements that have used violence--like abortion clinic bombings, or animal-liberation related violence--that have had a long-lasting effect on policy?
