MEXICO: Lincoln Steffens advises revolutionaries, 1916

I saw Madera and later Carranza whirled about helpless in the Mexican revolution and, conscientious men 
and humble in their troubles, they used to ask me,  anybody what they should do. There was no one to 
tell them; not in the whole world was there anybody who could say what to do at each new turn of the 
terrific storm, and Madera and Carranza were drowned. It was pitiful to see them killed, as they 
were, at the hands of men, but really by the unknown law of revolutionary psychology.  (Lincoln Steffens: Moses in Red
