If people try to shake off a yoke, they put more distance between themselves and liberty, because in mistaking for liberty an unbridled licence which is its opposite, their revolutions usually deliver them over to seducers who make their chains heavier.
Gist of Idea
Revolutionaries usually confuse liberty with total freedom, and end up with heavier chains
Jean-Jacques Rousseau (Discourse on the Origin of Inequality , Intro letter)
This 'Animal Farm' thought was presumably ignored in 1789 and 1917. There must be basic rules for revolutionaries, of which priorities they must never drop from sight, and which priorities are dangerous and misleading.
