From freedom to servitude in one generation
"Only a large-scale popular movement toward decentralization and self-help can arrest the present tendency toward statism... A really efficient totalitarian state would be one in which the all-powerful executive of political bosses and their army of managers control a population of slaves who do not have to be coerced, because they love their servitude. To make them love it is the task assigned, in present-day totalitarian states, to ministries of propaganda, newspaper editors and schoolteachers."

The ruling class has the schools and press under its thumb. This enables it to sway the emotions of the masses."

"In the highest antiquity, the people did not know that there were rulers.
In the next age they loved them and praised them.
In the next they feared them; in the next they despised them."
[Li Erh] (570-490 BC) 'Old Sage', Father of Taoism
