When you have to shoot, shoot, don't talk.

Do you think that Leone shown the whole meaning of the revolution in the scene, in which, after Miranda's monologue, Mallory throws a book in the mud?

But if you miss you had better miss very well. Whoever double-crosses me and leaves me alive, he understands nothing about Tuco.

I think the director expresses his feelings about "revolution" in that scene, yes.

Naw. I think he is being is sarcastic, and trying to thinly disguise his sympathy for the Red Brigades. Leone really wanted to blow up airports and kill Italian politicians instead of making films with grumpy Rod Steiger (who only took the piss out of him on screen).

One revolution is more than enough for me.

For me, Juan's monologue on revolution is one of the more poignant speeches ever found in cinema.  How can anyone not be moved by it?

Yes for sure, but also don't forget that the finished film began with a quotation from Mao Tse Tung (cut from American and English prints), in capital letters on a black background:

THE REVOLUTION
IS NOT A SOCIAL DINNER,
A LITERARY EVENT,
A DRAWING OR AN EMBROIDERY;
IT CANNOT BE DONE WITH
ELEGANCE AND COURTESY.
THE REVOLUTION IS AN ACT OF VIOLENCE.
