We are not equal. I know this may be disturbing but this is a truth that has been conceived from revolutionaries of various kinds: we are not and we cannot be equals. The Brazilian thinker Plinio Correa de Oliveira, in his seminal book “Revolution and Counter revolution” has affirmed: “Pride leads to hatred of all superiority and, thus, to the affirmation that inequality is an evil in itself at all levels, principally at the metaphysical and religious ones. This is the egalitarian aspect of the Revolution” Certainly we are all equal before God, in the eyes of God, but not among ourselves. This lack of hierarchy, of precedence, of respect for cultural, artistic, intellectual elites has brought us to the cultural disaster we are now living. This erroneous idea has also entered the realm of the Catholic Church, destroying a natural order that was reigning for centuries.
