“Most historical movements have their last will and testament along with their manifesto. They have known more surely what they oppose than what they are. By taking a firm position, they trigger an inevitable countermotion, one that will disorient their fragile identity almost at once. Then rapid metamorphosis and self-betrayal: pacifists who become violent, law-and-order advocates who trample law and order, patriots who undo liberties, ‘people’s revolutions’ that empower new elites, new movements in the arts that become as rigid as their predecessors, romantic ideals that lead to genocide.”
