The actual counter-revolutionary is not as rare as one might think at first. He has a clear vision of things, a fundamental love for coherence, and a strong soul. For this reason he has a lucid notion of the disorders of the contemporary world and of the catastrophes looming on the horizon. But his very lucidity makes him perceive the full extent of the isolation in which he so frequently finds himself in a chaos that to him appears to have no solution. Thus, many times, the counter-revolutionary keeps a disheartened silence – a sad condition: “Vae Soli” (“Woe to him that is alone”), the Scriptures say.
A counter-revolutionary action must seek, above all, to detect such persons, acquaint them with each other, and lead them to support each other in the public profession of their convictions.
-- Plinio Correa de Oliveira, Revolution and Counter-Revolution
I've downloaded the PDF, but haven't yet read it. So I don't know if I would endorse everything it contains.
But this quotation definitely rings true.
