|Prof. Plinio Corrêa de Oliveira
Plinio Corrêa de Oliveira founded the Brazilian TFP in 1960 and inspired autonomous, sister TFPs in 25 countries, forming the world's largest network of anti-communist organizations of Catholic inspiration. A man of faith, thought, and action, his work Revolution and Counter-Revolution continues to inspire Catholics today.
