All revolutions, though they may appear to arise from the people, are directed by individuals.
To affect change, one must have power, and that power can only come from the individual.
The “power of the masses” is a myth. Any clever dog can herd sheep.
Only the individual possesses true power; the masses, uncontrolled, are but a blind force.
This is the paradox of the revolutionary: to liberate the ruled, he must become the ruler.
Thus, the seed of the next revolt.
