A former adviser to Secretaries of State Condoleezza Rice and Hillary Clinton says revolutions of the future will happen faster and be easier to start, but they'll also be harder to stop.
Jared Cohen says the old model for revolutionaries such as Lech Walesa, Nelson Mandela and Charles De Gaulle was to first become a leader then a public figure.
He says that revolutions fueled by technology and social media will reverse that model, first creating celebrities who will quickly need to develop leadership skills.
But Cohen says that at the end of the day, you still need people to sit down and write a constitution.
Cohen is the director of Google Ideas and a member of the Council on Foreign Relations. He spoke in Sioux Falls Thursday evening.
