"And this I must fight against:
any idea, religion or government
which limits or destroys the individual.
This is what I am and what I am about.
I can understand why a system built on a
pattern must try to destroy the free mind,
for this is the one thing which can
by inspection destroy such a system."
East of Eden, 1952
