The Great Erik von Kuehnelt-Leddihn

“Following the French Revolution, numbers assumed immense importance. Even truth became a matter for majorities, so the bigger the majority, the ‘truer’ the right answer. The ideal was the affirmation by the majority, which in its ultimate form achieves a totality. Hence, we see the totalitarian root of democracy, which stands for the ‘politization’ of the entire people.” (Thanks, Daniel McAdams)
