».. wir werden zu sprechen kommen auf dieses vorgegebene Wir. Da gibt es Möglichkeiten und Konkurrenzen. Entweder will der Einzelne seine Macht als nackte Tatsache - und er braucht dazu ein Sklavenheer, Widerspruch kann er nicht dulden – er ist dann ein
..
.. einsamer monolithischer Block – und in seiner Hand eine gefügige Masse, eingeebnet und planiert. Oder der Einzelne will eine bessere Welt, eine bessere Menschheit, gegrenzt in Volk und Völkern, in Gesellschaft oder in der Masse aller Menschen, die vorfindbar sind, auch
..
.. dies führt zur Zertrümmerung des Ich. Alles was irgend von unten zu erklären ist, von unten aufsteht, bildet Masse, planiert und ebnet ein. Oder drittens: Ein System entfesselt die Masse aus sich selbst. Das ist die andere Tyrannei, die spezifische
..
.. Tyrannei des 20. Jahrhunderts, die Tyrannei der Massendemokratie, oder des Demokratismus. Von unten her soll alles gezimmert werden, gebaut werden. Die Menschen sollen zusammenfinden, um eine bessere Welt zu schaffen. Da kann man sich natürlich nicht den Luxus absoluter
..
.. Überzeugungen leisten. Da kann der Einzelne nicht auf seinem privaten Leben und seinem Einzelgewissen bestehen. Das ist dann Luxus, der nicht verkraftet und geduldet werden kann im Gebaren des Fortschrittes.«
Hans Milch, Predigt "Zeitvergötzung, Fortschrittsbetrug" (1977)
My tr.: › ..we will discuss this prescribed 'We' later. [ #German chancellor #Merkel is fond of this prescribed 'We'. One example is reproduced below. LG,I] In this matter, there are [different] possibilities, and there is competition [of ideas]. Either the individual wants
..
.. power as a naked fact―and for this he needs an army of slaves, dissent he cannot tolerate―and he is then a lonely monolithic block―and [then he needs to have] in his hand a pliable mass, leveled and planified. Or the individual wants a better world, a better humanity,
..
..within the limits of Folk and Nations, within society or within the mass of all human beings which can be found; this, too, lead to a fragmentation of the Ego. Everything which can be explained from below, which rises from below, constitutes a mass which planifies and
..
.. which levels. Or, thirdly: a system unleashes the masses from within itself. This is the other kind of tyranny, the specific tyranny of the 20th century, the tyranny of mass democracy, or of democratism. Everything is supposed to be carpented and constructed from below.
..
.. Human beings are supposed to unite in order to create a better word. In this pursuit, one of course cannot afford the luxury of absolute convictions. In this pursuit, the individual cannot insist on his private life and individual conscience. This is then luxury,
..
.. luxury which cannot be born or tolerated in a [properly] progressive behavior.'
