Mutiny (edit)
Revision as of 12:53, 20 August 2020
I suppose technically a Mutiny is against the law of any organization, but this Hyper Link is utterly horrible, it fails at NPOV, why on earth is this here. As an example for the Kurdish Workers Party you wouldn't put "The PKK is "Criminal Organization", that would be horrid. Wikipedia has no care for Offical Policies, often un-offical names will be used instead of Official ones because they are known better, Vichy France and the Wiemar Republic neither were ever offically called so.

'''Mutiny''' is a [[criminal conspiracy]] among a group of people (typically members of the [[military]] or the [[crew]] of any ship, even if they are civilians) to openly oppose, change, or overthrow a lawful authority to which they are subject. The term is commonly used for a [[rebellion]] among members of the military against their superior officers, but it can also occasionally refer to any type of rebellion against lawful authority or governances.
During the [[Age of Discovery]], mutiny particularly meant open rebellion against a ship's [[Captain (nautical)|captain]]. This occurred, for example, during [[Ferdinand Magellan|Ferdinand Magellan's]] journeys around the world, resulting in the killing of one mutineer, the [[Capital punishment|execution]] of another, and the [[marooning]] of others; on [[Henry Hudson]]'s ''Discovery'' resulting in Hudson and others being set adrift in a boat; and the notorious [[mutiny on the Bounty|mutiny on the ''Bounty'']].
