Confusion in section "Timeline"[edit]

The section "Timeline" is confusing. First, it is too long and unstructured -- it should be broken into sub-sections. Second, there is a confusing reference "see above" when talking about the imprisonment of Leveler leaders in 1649. This suggests that the sentence is referring to the first mention of the Tower, but that was about Lilburne's imprisonment in 1646. Also, what's the relation between the manifestos "An arrow", "Agreement of the People" and "Agreement of the Free People"? -Pgan002 (talk) 04:02, 28 March 2009 (UTC)

I concur, perhaps there is a way to divide it so as to make it clearer and also more detailed. A sub-section could be on the levellers within the army and their specific demands, how their evolved and how it ended for them; another section could be on the "city" levellers, their influence, relation with power and demands. I would make a distinction between groups of levellers to emphasise that the Leveller movement was not an homogeneous one even if they had a common core demands. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 159.84.182.85 (talk) 16:16, 24 February 2016 (UTC)

Levellers Today?[edit]

Is it worth mentioning Leveller echoes in popular movements today ?

All seem to have started very recently - may not yet be notable in themselves, but in an historical context, maybe ?

None of those movements echo the ideas of, or have anything to do with the Levellers - so please leave them out of this article.— Preceding unsigned comment added by 86.179.225.195 (talkcontribs) 00:16, 21 December 2011‎

Why not make a short paragraph or sentence on "Leveller day"? [1] — Preceding unsigned comment added by 159.84.182.85 (talk) 16:23, 24 February 2016 (UTC)
