In a way the Nazis’ rejection of traditional humanism led to their appalling fates. It is one thing to mock the subtle infrastructures of a civil society, to claim they serve no purpose, but quite another to tear them down.

(aus "Daughter of Dreams: Book One of Elric: The Moonbeam Roads Michael Moorcock)
