"Only relatively few individuals can be expected to be capable of such an achievement, and they are not the political but the moral leaders of mankind.
…the State is his servant and not his master.
Thanks to industrialization, large portions of the population were uprooted and were herded together in large centres. This new form of existence – with its mass psychology and social dependence on the fluctuation of markets and wages – produced an individual who was unstable, insecure, and suggestible.
…the destruction of the individual and the increase of the fiction we call the State."
-- Carl Gustav Jung
