“The word ‘revolution’ to us Frenchmen is not a vague term. We know that revolution is a rupture, that revolution is an absolute. There is no such thing as a moderate revolution, there is no such thing as a planned revolution—as one speaks of a planned economy. The revolution we are announcing will overturn the entire existing order or it will not take place at all.” (Jean-Marie Straub mit Georges Bernanos)
