Nobility Of The People

December 31, 2020

Could one speak of distinction in the people?

Certainly. How much distinction and elegance doesn’t the man of the Spanish countryside have? Thus, all that is said of the nobility may also be applied analogously to the plebian classes, although in lesser plenitude.

In this manner we verify that the concepts of nobility and majesty don’t repose upon a single social class, it being that the same concept may also be applied to the lesser and more simple man of the people.

There is a kind of pastoral innocence in certain societies which still has a bit of the aroma of Paradise, the aroma of recollections and reminiscence of primitive revelation; the aroma of the first blessings of God.

I believe that those that would study Syria, Lebanon, etc., of twenty years ago would still find things like this.
