"The case for a free society rests on individualism. ... Every form of totalitarianism has sought control over the minds of individuals, and has understood that it must first undermine the individual’s confidence in the validity of his own faculties. Remember O’Brien’s speech to Winston Smith in Orwell’s '1984' "

Reader comments about this quote:
All forms of organizations, put in place to establish societal "order" have done so at natural law (in harmony with the absolute of eternity = each individual is the supreme sovereign) or some other way. The some other way is not a free society.
