If small business goes, big business does not have any future except to become the economic arm of a totalitarian state.  (Totalitarian State Quotes) Corporation: a miniature totalitarian state governed by a hierarchy of unelected officials who take a dim view of individualism, free speech, equality and eggheads. The backbone of all Western democracies  (Totalitarian State Quotes) The biggest crime in Nabokov’s ‘Lolita’ is imposing your own dream upon someone else’s reality. Humbert Humbert is blind. He doesn’t see Lolita’s reality. He doesn’t see that Lolita should leave. He only sees Lolita as an extension of his own obsession. This is what a totalitarian state does  (Totalitarian State Quotes) In a war a totalitarian state has a free hand  (Totalitarian State Quotes) For the totalitarian mind, adherence to state propaganda does not suffice: one must display proper enthusiasm while marching in the parade  (Totalitarian State Quotes) The difference between a welfare state and a totalitarian state is a matter of time  (Totalitarian State Quotes) Propaganda is to a democracy what the bludgeon is to a totalitarian state  (Totalitarian State Quotes) Only religious fanatics and totalitarian states equate morality with legality  (Totalitarian State Quotes) The great strength of the totalitarian state is that it forces those who fear it to imitate it  (Totalitarian State Quotes) It is not true that virtually all news in a totalitarian state is false  (Totalitarian State Quotes) Of course, we knew that the official reports were sketchy, if not falsified. But, in terms of information theory, this is precisely where the problem lay: How were we to reconstruct reality from incomplete or false reports? It is not true that virtually all news in a totalitarian state is false. On the contrary, most news is completely correct, albeit tendentiously slanded; it is just that certain information is suppressed. One can adjust for the political slanting of the news, but there is virtually no way to fill in the omissions  (Totalitarian State Quotes) It is hard, I submit, to loathe bloodshed, including war, more than I do, but it is still harder to exceed my loathing of the very nature of totalitarian states in which massacre is only an administrative detail  (Totalitarian State Quotes) Hamas is a terrorist organization dedicated to annihilating the Jewish state. It runs a theocratic totalitarian state in Gaza, with no individual liberty, and no freedom of speech or press  (Totalitarian State Quotes) In some states militant nationalism has gone to the lengths of dictatorship, the cult of the absolute or totalitarian state and the glorification of war  (Totalitarian State Quotes) If small business goes, big business does not have any future except to become the economic arm of a totalitarian state  (Totalitarian State Quotes) But I was only a chaotic walker, nobody could stop me; even a totalitarian state was not able to control my daydreams, my poetic fascinations, the pattern of my walking  (Totalitarian State Quotes) A totalitarian state is in effect a theocracy, and its ruling caste, in order to keep its position, has to be thought of as infallible. But since, in practice, no one is infallible, it is frequently necessary to rearrange past events in order to show that this or that mistake was not made, or that this or that imaginary triumph actually happened  (Totalitarian State Quotes) If one holds these high principles clearly before one’s eyes, and compares them with the life and spirit of our times, then it appears glaringly that civilized mankind finds itself at present in grave danger. In the totalitarian states it is the rulers themselves who strive actually to destroy that spirit of humanity. In less threatened parts it is nationalism and intolerance, as well as the oppression of the individuals by economic means, which threaten to choke these most precious traditions  (Totalitarian State Quotes) The problem of values arises only when men try to fit together their need to be social animals with their need to be free men. There is no problem, and there are no values, until men want to do both. If an anarchist wants only freedom, whatever the cost, he will prefer the jungle of man at war with man. And if a tyrant wants only social order, he will create the totalitarian state  (Totalitarian State Quotes) Without freedom there will be no firearms among the people; without firearms among the people there will not long be freedom. Certainly there are examples of countries where the people remain relatively free after the people have been disarmed, but there are no examples of a totalitarian state being created or existing where the people have personal arms  (Totalitarian State Quotes) Any doctrine that weakens personal responsibility for judgment and for action helps create the attitudes that welcome and support the totalitarian state  (Totalitarian State Quotes) So I began to think maybe it was true that when you were married and had children it was like being brainwashed, and afterward you went about as numb as a slave in a totalitarian state  (Totalitarian State Quotes) Does human nature undergo a true change in the cauldron of totalitarian violence? Does man lose his innate yearning for freedom? The fate of both man and the totalitarian State depends on the answer to this question. If human nature does change, then the eternal and world-wide triumph of the dictatorial State is assured; if his yearning for freedom remains constant, then the totalitarian State is doomed  (Totalitarian State Quotes)
