'democratorship.'"(p25), "Communism cannot be reformed; it can only be replaced by something else."(p27), "Politics is not a deductive science"(p40), "...to be a revolutionary is always to be a totalitarian...anarchy leads to despotism... despotism leads to anarchy..."(p40).
Especially enlightening is chapter 13 about the French society; in the original it is entitled "le pourrissement dans la tete."
