For the Marxist, rebelliousness in non-Communist societies is a sociological fact and in Communist society a merely psychological fact.
In the former the “exploited” rebel, in the latter “traitors” reveal themselves.

  1. In Spanish, the words traslated here as "rebel" and "reveal" are pronounced exactly the same: "rebelar" and "revelar."

  2. The original Spanish is:

    Para el marxista, la rebeldía en sociedades no comunistas es hecho sociológico y en la sociedad comunista hecho psicológico meramente.
    Allí se rebela un “explotado,” aquí se revela un “traidor.”
