CHAPTER XIV - Home to Sayula

`Do you think it is pleasant for me?' she said, clasping her hands.
`You do not make it pleasant for me, Carlota.'
`How can I? You know I think you are wrong. When I listened to you last night - there is something so beautiful in it all - and yet so monstrous. So monstrous! - Oh! I think to myself: What is this man doing? This man of all men, who might be such a blessing to his country and mankind -'
`Well,' said Ramon. `And what is he instead?'
'You know! You know! I can't bear it. - It isn't for you to save Mexico, Ramon. Christ has already saved it.'
`It seems to me not so.'
`He has ! He has ! And He made you the wonderful being that you are, so that you should work out the salvation, in the name of Christ and of love. Instead of which'
`Instead of which, Carlota, I try something else. - But believe me, if the real Christ has not been able to save Mexico - and He hasn't - then I am sure the white Anti-Christ of charity, and socialism, and politics, and reform, will only succeed in finally destroying her. That, and that alone, makes me take my stand. - You, Carlota, with your charity works and your pity: and men like Benito Juarez, with their Reform and their Liberty: and the rest of the benevolent people, politicians and socialists and so forth, surcharged with pity for living men, in their mouths, but really with hate - the hate of the materialist have-nots for the materialist hams: they are the Anti-Christ. The old world, that's just the world. But the new world, that wants to save the People, this is the Anti-Christ. This is Christ with real poison in the communion cup. - And for this reason I step out of my ordinary privacy and individuality. I don't want everybody poisoned. About the great mass I don't care. But I don't want everybody poisoned.'
`How can you be so sure that you yourself are not a poisoner of the people? - I think you are.'
`Think it then. I think of you, Carlota, merely that you have not been able to come to your complete, final womanhood: which is a different thing from the old womanhoods.'
`Womanhood is always the same.'
'Ah, no, it isn't! Neither is manhood.'
