if you end up with some sort of armed revolution you just end up with the same thing ruled by different people
Study the Glorious Revolution and its effect on the governance of what shortly became the UK and say that. It really did change things, for good.
The same is true of quite a lot of revolutions. Sure, power suckers will always suck power -- but that doesn't mean the way in which they suck power will always be the same, nor that every government is the same as every other government, and most certainly not that they are all as bad as each other! (I happen to believe that e.g. France, headgear bans or no, is a considerably better place to live than, say, North Korea, even though both have fairly large state sectors. I suspect most people would agree with me on this. You really do need to look at more than 'size of government'.)
