    Nearly four years after the beginning of the March 2011 protest movement in Syria, it is useful to investigate its actual consequences on the ground without immersing ourselves in the quandary of description. It has always been arduous for the dissidents imprisoned in the past decades by Syrian authorities, or for banned parties with little popular support, to come up with revolutionary equations that match the reality in Syria. It’s a reality where social and economic structures have integrated in a seemingly harmonious body since the ascendance of the Baath party to power since 1963. The party and the security apparatus controls collective mentality and relieves it of thinking. It has also been strenuous for the Syrian opposition, isolated from the social structures by the deep security state, to anticipate the way in which revolutionary action would reach their country and how and where it would start.
