Bookbag: A Modern Maistre

Owen Bradley (as seen on this blog):
It is necessary to remark, however, a certain pride in failure on the part of the counterrevolution: not simply a disdain verging on disgust toward events in Paris, but a pride in not being understood as the trait of a superior sensibility.
However, Maistre was only sometimes a disdainfulcon, unlike Oakeshott, who we know was one all the time.
