Any man who would change the World in a significant way must have showmanship, a genial willingness to shed other people’s blood, and a plausible new religion to introduce during the brief period of repentance and horror that usually follows bloodshed.
All time is all time. It does not change. It does not lend itself to warnings or explanations. It simply is.
A man cannot change, that is to say become another person, while continuing to obey the dictates of the self which he has ceased to be.[Car on ne peut pas changer, c’est-à-dire devenir une autre personne, tout en continuant à obéir aux sentiments de celle qu’on n’est plus.]
A change of regulations concerning property without a corresponding change of government is not a revolution, but a reform.
