“When, for instance, the belief in the God Wotan vanished and nobody thought of him anymore, the phenomenon originally called Wotan remained; nothing changed but its name, as National Socialism has demonstrated on a grand scale. A collective movement consists of millions of individuals, each of whom shows the symptoms of Wotanism and proves thereby that Wotan in reality never died, but has retained his original vitality and autonomy. Our consciousness only imagines that it has lost its Gods; in reality they are still there and it only needs a certain general condition in order to bring them back in full force." - Carl Jung

“Fascism, Nazism, Communism and Socialism are only superficial variations of the same monstrous theme—collectivism.” - Ayn Rand

 

"If you look at all forms of collectivism, be it communism or fascism, people are reduced to animals." - Jack Larson
 
"Collectivism and freedom are mortal enemies. Only one will survive." - G. Edward Griffin
 
"There can be no freedom of thought, no freedom of the Press, where it is necessary that everything should be governed by a single system of thought. In theory Socialism may wish to enhance freedom, but in practice every kind of collectivism consistently carried thought must produce the characteristic features which Fascism, Nazism, and Communism have in common. Totalitarianism is nothing but consistent collectivism, the ruthless execution of the principle that 'the whole comes before the individual' and the direction of all members of society by a single will supposed to represent the 'whole'." - Friedrich Hayek
 
“I wonder how many such men in America would know that Communism, the New Deal, Fascism, Nazism, are merely so-many trade-names for collectivist Statism, like the trade-names for tooth-pastes which are all exactly alike except for the flavouring.” - Albert Jay Nock

"She saw such power in his broad over-muscled torso and such intense focus in his sharp grey eyes she wondered she was not repelled by Loken. He was a killing machine, created and trained to deal death, but she couldn't stop watching and blink-clicking images of his heroic physique.” - Galaxy in Flames by Ben Counter

“Being nationalistic in the sense in which it is now demanded by public opinion would, it seems to me, be for us who are more spiritual not mere insipidity but dishonesty, a deliberate deadening of our better will and conscience.” - Friedrich Nietzsche

"Adjuncts -- another sign of the death of the university. They have no power, no authority, and make no money. It's all ceded to the administration. I have been trying to get my faculty colleagues to take a stand against this for years." - Dr. Jordan Peterson, Tweet from Twitter on November 28, 2017.
 
 
"Now the right-wing identitarians have their panties in a knot about what I've said about the pathology of racial pride.... Demonstrating (as if it is necessary) that the mirror reflection of malevolence is also.... malevolence." - Dr. Jordan Peterson, Tweet from Twitter on November 28, 2017.

"Academics lack perspective. In a debate on whether the world is round, they would argue, 'No,' because it's an oblate spheroid. They suffer from 'the curse of knowledge': the inability to imagine what it's like not to know something that they know." - Steven Pinker

"There has to be innate circuitry that does the learning, that creates the culture, that acquires the culture, and that responds to socialization." - Steven Pinker
 
“The task of evolutionary psychology is not to weigh in on human nature, a task better left to others. It is to add the satisfying kind of insight that only science can provide: to connect what we know about human nature with the rest of our knowledge of how the world works, and to explain the largest number of facts with the smallest number of assumptions.” - Steven Pinker
