As I have already pointed out, the dictator State, besides robbing the individual of his rights, has also cut the ground from under his feet psychically by depriving him of the metaphysical foundations of this existence. The ethical decision of the individual human being no longer counts – what alone matters is the blind movement of the masses, and the lie thus becomes the operative principle of political action.
