Abstract:

The document contains a tentative exploration of what the author believes is a major phenomenon of our time -- the rise of a new type of revolutionary movement, described as totalitarian revolutions. They occur, not because of the clash between a growing, dynamic society and a static political framework tending to shackle its growth, but because of some elements of stagnation, some lopsidedness of development within the society itself, leading to a deadlock which leads to the massive use of political force.
