Apogee of the Egalitarian Revolution

August 23, 2018

By Prof. Plinio Corrêa de Oliveira


The Cluny era in the history of the Church was the era in which the Church dominated human society, deserving the praise of Leo XIII for the Middle Ages: “There was a time when the philosophy of the Gospel governed the States…” This characterized the apogee of the Cluniesque period of the Middle Ages. And what the twelfth century was for the Church, the twentieth century is for the Revolution.* We could take Leo XIII’s eulogy, replace ‘Gospel’ with ‘egalitarianism’ and we would have a description of the twentieth century. It does not help to say that in our century some things are better, others are worse, etc. The egalitarian Revolution dominates everything. Every century has its characteristic note; that of our century is egalitarianism. We must sustain and demonstrate this in practice.
