“At the bottom of all totalitarian doctrines lies the belief that the rulers are wiser and loftier then their subjects and that they therefore know better what benefits those ruled than they themselves.” (Ludvig von Mises, Omnipotent Government: The Rise of the Total State and Total War, New York, January, 1944)
