Julien Benda Quote

Up until our own times men had only received two sorts of teaching in what concerns the relations between politics and morality. One was Plato's and it said: Morality decides politics ; and the other was Machiavelli's, and it said Politics have nothing to do with morality. Today we receive a third. M. Maurras teaches: Politics decide morality.
