Insurrection means violent uprising, armed assault, or strong revolt against authority or government. Violence is part of an insurrection, and there is no way to avoid it.

While the meaning of insurrection is quite simple, in different contexts it can be rather complex. It is because of the contexts and possible uses of insurrection that it is such a popular word today.
Because of this, I think it’s important we go over some uses and contexts of insurrection.
First, insurrection does not have a positive meaning. We can use the example of the French Revolution, and the storming of the Bastille. The reason why it’s a revolution and not an insurrection is because the goal was a positive one.
However, the losing side of the French Revolution would call it an insurrection. This is because the revolution was against them, so they wanted to point out that it was violent.
We can see something similar today (2021). Two sides who are discussing the violence at the Capitol in Washington D.C.
The Democrats are calling it an insurrection, while the Republicans call it a revolution.
When using insurrection, be careful with what you want to say, and who you want to say it to. Each side will have a different opinion on what happened, how, and why.
