"The totalitarian society seeks to destroy whatever individuality exists in man by transforming him into an insignificant atom of the mass. Totalitarianism is therefore hostile to individuals pursuing their own private and personal goals. It reduces man to a member of one vast whole - the "Nordic master race" under Nazism, the "glorious proletariat" under communism. Whereas democratic civilization seeks progress through individuality, totalitarianism seeks to accomplish its ends through socialist conformity."   "The only justifiable purpose of political institutions is to insure the unhindered development of the individual."

-Albert Einstein 1948
