However, as the French philosopher Albert Camus said “In order to exist, man must rebel, but rebellion must respect the limits that it discovers in itself” (Rebel Quotes). This is an interesting hypothesis as rebellions are meant to break the limits of society, but he’s saying they mustn’t overcome their own bonds.
