The Purposes And Pitfalls Of Revolution

• By Giordano Bruno,
In every human being there exists a balance, an internal fulcrum, a guide to what is honest, to what is true and constant. When this balance within us is broken, by ourselves or by others, it tends to attract grief and desolation, like some terrible and ferocious gravity. Just as this is true for individuals, so is it true for nations. A country’s political structure must reflect accurately the dreams and aspirations of its people, and foster those dreams with respect and care. In most cases throughout history, this does not occur. Often, the desires of government break from the life of the people and it becomes an obstacle to the intellectual, philosophical, and spiritual progress of men it was originally designed to protect.
