Hannah Arendt On The Origins Of Totalitarianism

Hannah Arendt on the origins of totalitarianism.

"The ideal subject of totalitarian rule is not the convinced Nazi or the convinced Communist, but people for whom the distinction between fact and fiction (i.e., the reality of experience) and the distinction between true and false (i.e., the standards of thought) no longer exist."

Hannah Arendt (The Origins of Totalitarianism) (1906 -1975)
