Kommunistene visste hvor viktig det var å ødelegge forståelsen av individet slik at staten kunne fremme sitt kollektive utopiske drømme samfunn. At individet er herre over staten isteden for motsatt er et viktig og grunnlegge premiss for frihet. Merk hvor viktig det var for Marxistene å ødelegge denne forståelsen. Kollektive ideologier har vært svært destruktive historisk.
If this country gives up the idea that the law is above the state and the individual is the master of the government rather than the other way around it ceases to be American. - Daniel Hannan
G. Brock Chisholm (1896-1971)
To achieve world government, it is necessary to remove from the minds of men their individualism, loyalty to family traditions, national patriotrism and religious dogmas.
Karl Marx (1818-1883)
The human essence is no abstraction inherent in each single individual. In its reality it is the ensemble of the social relations.
Herbert Marcuse (1898-1979)
Marcuse said that Freud's most important contribution to understanding humans was to undermine "one of the strongest ideological fortifications of modern culture - namely, the notion of the autonomous individual.
Jean Paul Satre (1905-1980)
Believe that the thinking of the group is where the truth is.. I always considered group thinking to be better than thinking alone... I don't believe a separate individual to be capable of doing anything.
Louis Baudin (1887-1964)
Writing about the Incha, "Life itself was torn out of that geometrical and sad empire, where everything occurred with the inevitability of fatum... The Indian lost his personality.
Dom Deschamps (1716-1774)
Envisioned how his perfect world with identical morals would make, so to say, one man of all men and one woman of all women. I mean by this that ultimately they would resemble each other more than animals of the same species. He furthered proposed banishing, "all terms presently used to express our good and bad qualities, even all terms unnecessarily distinguishing us from other things.
Lester F. Ward
In 1893, Ward called for a revolution a
gainst the individual. "The individual has reigned long enough. The day has come for society to take its affairs into its own hands and shape its own destitines . The individual has acted as best he could. He has acted in the only way he could. With a consciousness, will, and intellect of his own he could do nothing else than pursue his natural ends... Society should learn its great lessons from him, should follow the path he has so clearly laid out that leads to success.
Cleon Skousen (author of Naked Socialist)
By eliminating the individual, a new society is crated, a society of the anonymous human being. An important tool for destroying individual rights and promoting "group-think" is to deploy the clever abuse of one of mankind's most basic generators of conflict: Envy.
