For with this perspective any such setback is seen to be only a partial failure. This diversity, this variety of separate complementary initiatives prevents the fall of an advance post from appearing to be other than it is – a hard blow no doubt, but never a total disaster. Either we regain a sense and desire for this kind of action, or we shall see the downfall of all that we seek to serve. Since the most obvious characteristic of all superior forms of life (human life, social life) is the variety of their organisms and the complexity of their operations, it must be immediately obvious that a unitary formula which is simplistic and monopolist by intention, cannot possibly respond to the requirements of an order so fluctuating and diverse.

And it is therefore led by its infernal logic to use means which can be 46 Jean Ousset described as alien to the natural order – a miscellaneous collection of procedures for exercising pressure which do violence to the nature of things. It must, however, be recognized that the means employed are admirably suited to the purposes of the Revolution. For, as St. Pius X has put it, we do not seek to rebuild the City otherwise than God has built it. We know only too well that civilization no longer requires to be invented, nor is it a new city to be built in the clouds.

Everything one could wish for concerning strategy and tactics. With what realism, skill and keenness of perception. There one finds nothing at random. Instead there is a veritable hierarchy of social actions, with one operation complementing another; progress step by step, a simultaneous multi­plicity of co-ordinated initiatives. If our writers excel in describing the aim and the purposes of action but are lacking in insight as to means and methods, with the Revolutionary authors it is the other way round.
