"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."
