A rebel is someone who sets his face against the norms of society and held belief, so spiritually is one who cannot accept given teachings.
A revolution takes place when a number of rebels can bring about a change in belief.
Psychological / emotional perspective: We will only rebel if we feel sufficiently strongly about something.
For there to be a rebel or anarchist in our dreams suggests that we have allowed that part of ourselves a ‘voice’. We can then understand it and decide on the validity of the feelings.
Material aspects: In working situations we are not often able to express our rebelliousness, perhaps at being asked to perform a particular task we don’t consider necessary. As a dream character we can find out from the rebel what it is that is really disturbing us.
A rebellion or revolution would occur in dreams if a position became completely untenable. Consult the entry for conflict for further clarification.
