This is why The Revolution prevails and The Reactionaries are doomed to dabbling around the cultural edges.
Moral Convention restrains the Reactionary . He does not allow
himself to politicize a tragedy. The Reactionary speaks in value-rich language about "tradition", "decorum", "values" and "ideals".
The Revolutionary recognizes this weakness in The Reactionary and exploits it to further Revolutionary goals. He is HAPPY to politicize any tragedy as he rejects all these antiquated "social constructs". He believes in State Solutions and nothing else. The last thing he is concerned with is offending the sensibilities of The Reactionary.
The Reactionary is left a bit shaken that another American would "stoop" to this level. The Revolutionary feels elevated, as he has been of service to The Revolution. One is left shaking his head, the other is moving FORWARD !
