image British writer, G.K. Chesterton (1874-1936) wrote in his book Orthodoxy: The Romance of Faith, that those who are rebels questioning everything can not be expected to be revolutionaries:

The new rebel is a skeptic, and will not trust anything… therefore he can never be really a revolutionary.  For all denunciation implies a moral doctrine of some kind… Therefore the modern man in revolt has become practically useless for all purposes for revolt.  By rebelling against everything he has lost his right to rebel against anything… There is a thought that stops a thought.  That is the only thought that ought to be stopped, (pg. 33, 41-42).
