Quote from John Steinbeck,

"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."
