Reactionaries Demand: That The Revolution Stop
“Reactionaries demand that the revolution stop because the Guillotine has done enough.” (Thomas Carlyle Club for Young Reactionaries; Radish Magazine)
“That a good man be ‘free’, be permitted to unfold himself in works of goodness and nobleness, is surely a blessing to him, immense and indispensable; – to him and to those about him. But that a bad man be ‘free’, – permitted to unfold himself in his particular way, is the fatallest curse you could inflict on him; curse and nothing else, to him and all his neighbors.” (Thomas Carlyle)
