I rather think he is referring more to events like mob uprisings, such as
the Haymarket Riots, or, considering the time frame, the Russian
revolution, where people took politics into their own hands, fought for
change, either won or lost, and then descended back into the faceless,
sheeplike mob.

From what I understand, I believe that it is portrayed that the earth is
the narrator and "spatter a few red drops for history to remember" could be
a volcano.
