Quote of the Week: Plinio Corrêa de Oliveira, “Revolution and Counter-Revolution”

Everything that has been said herein provides grounds for a practical observation.

Spirits marked by this interior Revolution might conserve a counter-revolutionary attitude in respect to one or many points due to an interplay of circumstances and coincidences, such as being reared in a strongly traditional and moral milieu.

Nevertheless the spirit of the Revolution will still be enthroned in the mentality of these ‘semi-counterrevolutionaries’.

In a people where the majority are in such a state of soul, the Revolution will be irrepressible until they change.

Thus, as a consequence of the Revolution’s unity, only the total counter-revolutionary is an authentic counter-revolutionary.

▪ Plinio Corrêa de Oliveira, Revolution and Counter-Revolution (Tradition Family Property, 3rd ed., 1993) extract from page 60.
