THE DANGEROUS REVOLUTIONARY SPIRITS.  Those who are bent on revolutionising society may be divided into those who seek something for themselves thereby and those who seek something for their children and grandchildren.  The latter are the more dangerous, for they have the belief and the good conscience of disinterestedness.  The others can be appeased by favours: those in power are still sufficiently rich and wise to adopt that expedient.  The danger begins as soon as the aims become impersonal; revolutionists seeking impersonal interests may consider all defenders of the present state of things as personally interested, and may therefore feel themselves superior to their opponents.
